Manoir de la Forêt is an idyllic, private, event centre in the heart of a 29 acre maple forest in Cantley, Quebec; a short 20 minute drive from central Gatineau and Ottawa.
Welcoming you all year round, the sweeping tree-lined driveway opens to the Manoir, where the post and beam Oak Room is bright and airy with stunning views onto the surrounding tranquil woodland.

We feel so lucky to have found le Manoir de la Forêt for our 2020 wedding! In the midst of planning a wedding during a pandemic, we had to change a lot of things and adapt. Sandy was so helpful and so kind during all of this. Thanks to her and the rest of her team we had a stress-free beautiful wedding. And of course the venue is absolutely gorgeous! There are several spots for stunning pictures: greenery, forest, large balcony, fireplace... you name it. Strongly recommend!
The night after the wedding, my husband and I and our wedding party stayed in the rooms upstairs in the cottage. This was a great option as we didn’t have to pack up and drive anywhere else that night. In the morning Manoir de la Forêt served a delicious continental breakfast with the crispiest croissants imaginable. Having the option to stay overnight gave us more time with our loved ones.
Our team had an amazing work retreat at Manoir de la Forêt. It has the right amount of space for a group of us to be working all day together, with a mix of table space with projector and flip charts as well as a more cozy room where we could have strategic conversations. Our bedrooms were charming and comfortable and gave us all enough privacy. The food was delicious and plentiful, and they worked around some special dietary needs! The setting was beautiful, with a short walking trail right on site. Absolutely recommend!
Whatever the nature of your gathering, informal or formal, we look forward to welcoming you soon!
