    Lake-front B&B near Parc National Mauricie

    The B&B hosts were very friendly and helpful, providing lots of good tips on what to visit. The room was in excellent condition, with nice furnishings and a view over the lake (we saw a spectacular thunderstorm over the water one night). Breakfast is home made, with lots of fruit, yogurt, crepes, coffee, juice and more. Very nice all round.

    Beau séjour mère fille!

    Très bel endroit au bord de l’eau. La propriétaire fait ce qu’elle peut pour rendre notre séjour agréable. Toutefois, le terrain Et la façade de l’hôtel manquent d’amour et d’entretien. Par contre, les propriétaires ont mis beaucoup d’effort dans la rénovation de leurs chambres qui sont très belles et qui ont une magnifique vue sur le lac. Plus grosse déception lors de notre séjour, le spa était payant 10$ par personne par jour, donc ça nous a enlevé l’envie d’y aller:(

    L'endroit est très sympa, au pied de l'eau, un beau site pour voir le coucher de soleil. La propriétaire est aux petits soins, avec la bonne humeur et les histoires locales. Merci Jeanne.
