Great B&B with wonderful breakfast!

5 on July 11, 2012

I love art, food & travel. I have been traveling around the world for many years, and have stayed in all kinds of places even high end hotels where they served grand buffets for breakfast. However none of those breakfasts can compare to Mrs. Belangers’ breakfasts; they are not only breathtakingly beautiful, but also very fresh and utterly delicious. We stayed for three days, and regretfully only got chances to take two pictures. Without exaggeration, I rank Mrs. Belanger's breakfasts as the best in the whole world. Their rooms are clean and cozy. There is plenty of hot water for the Jacuzzi bath. The free kayaking, boating and fishing are literally in their backyard. Highway 73 is about 5 minutes driving from this B & B. You can go south about 15 minutes to Quebec's famous Old Town, and north about 20 minutes to Parc national de la Jacques-Cartire where you can go hiking, biking, snow shoeing and more… I’ll definitely return soon.

Just a perfect stay

We stayed at this gîte last september. Quebec was our last stop and it was the perfect end of a splendid holiday. We 'upgraded' to the zen-room, which was a very nice room, with the whirlpool as an asset. We felt very welcome and we surely hope to go back !!

About the innkeepers

We always wanted to have a business at home. Our house has always been a welcoming house. We were used to receive many people at home and it has always been a place of assembly. The artistic and friendly atmosphere of our home makes our guest feeling that they are at home with good friends. For us, meeting guests coming from everywhere is a way to travel all around the world. We enjoy so much that type of business and does not feel that we are at work.
