That is what happened in 2013, when we first saw the presbytery in Montebello, QC. The Presbytery in Montebello happened to still be for sale when we came back a year later. We began to imagine the possibilities... 


1938 - 2023

The Montebello Presbytery (rectory) was built in 1938 by Monseigneur Chamberland, who was the priest that oversaw the region around Montebello.


Sadly the church to which the presbytery is attached had to sell the presbytery to raise funds to repair the church.   The presbytery was in a terrible state of repair, having been rented out for some twenty years.   At times, when it rained, it rained more inside than out!


The restoration work to bring her back to life was significant - roof repairs, stone repairs, collapsed walls and ceilings, and completely upgrading all of the electrical, plumbing and building a pool & garden sanctuary.

Renovation of a century-old historic building comes with many quirks, especially when turning the building into a modern luxury hotel.  


A complete upgrade of all electrics going from 60 amps to 400 amps was necessary. In terms of plumbing, we had to now accommodate 8 luxury guest rooms outfitted with luxury Italian showers with jets, and jacuzzi soaker tubs. 


Some of the pictures below will show the 5-year journey to repair the old presbytery and to bring the Manoir Chamberland to life.   We hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we had fun on this restoration journey!
