The town is located on the north shore of Lake Saint-Louis, which was named after Louis XIV. It is part of the Laurentian Mountains and has a view over Lac des Deux Montagnes to Montreal's skyline. The area around Saint-Amable has been inhabited for thousands of years by native peoples including Algonquins, Iroquois and Hurons. In 1672, French explorer Marquette travelled through this region with his indigenous guide "Teguayo" (aka Jean Nicolet). They stopped at an island in Lake St.-Louis where they had a meal before continuing their journey westward along the Ottawa River towards Sault Ste Marie. In 1703 or 1704, Jesuit missionary Pierre de La Chasse established a mission here among members of three First Nations tribes: Ojibwe (known as Algonquin), Huron and Potawatomi.
