    Are you saying Mont to New York State or to New York City?

    I can not help with Montreal, but once out of the city, there are tons of roads that are nice to ride on down into NY. My own pref would be to ride rt 9 South as far as possible. there are several additons to 9 (9B, 9N, etc.) that are great as well. 9 will basically take you through the lake areas (Champlain, George, etc.), or you can take rt 30 South through the ADP, then find a suitable route towards Albany and down to NYC.

    I think if you got a good map (like a gazzeteer), you could plan a nice trip. I know there tons of B&B's around as well.
