Our party of four 60+ women signed up for an Ice Hotel "package deal". The evening at Hotel Musee in Wendake was simply an add-on; a night to relax after all the Ice Hotel sleepover excitement. Our expectations for Hotel Musee were low, we just wanted to relax ....and relax we did. BUT, the Hotel Musee was a gorgeous place!...

That visit was just a wonderful discovery for me. I had been always perceiving the "Hurons" as being a name of proudness and strength. When playing as a child, this name sounded like the braves natives of Northern America. I here learned that the name "Huron" given to them by the first Europeans actually was hurting their proudness due to...

Everyone was friendly and welcoming. The meals were beautifully prepared, and delicious. Our host and waiters were friendly and offered ideas on things to do in the area. The museum was good, except that it was in french. The displays did have bilingual signs. I would suggest visiting the museum; it is educational and worth it. The town of Wendake...
