Three Inns with Lots of Personality in Québec maritime
If you’re anything like me, when it comes to your vacation, you want to be treated like an honoured guest. You’re also probably looking forward to meeting friendly people, trying new things and relaxing in inspiring surroundings. Every inn is different and is often a reflection of the people who work there or its unique location. Here are three charming inns that stand out.
Auberge du Mange Grenouille (Bas-Saint-Laurent)
Upon entering the Auberge du Mange Grenouille, you will be transported to another world: forget the sleek and modern look; here you’ll find uniquely decorated rooms filled with the many treasures the innkeepers have collected from around the world. The inn’s reputation also rests on its delicious cuisine, which features local dishes prepared with care, as well as the incredible view of sunsets and the Bic Islands. Add to that a flower garden, a boutique (in a chapel) and, especially, the warm welcome and the little touches that the team has in store for you, and you will be over the moon! More details here.
Chic-Chocs Mountain Lodge (Gaspésie)
Perched 615 metres (2000 feet) above sea level in the middle of the wilderness, the Chic-Chocs Mountain Lodge is surrounded by breathtaking panoramas. As soon as you arrive, the staff will do everything to put you at ease and offer you an exceptional stay. The inn will appeal to outdoor enthusiasts, who can explore the vast surrounding territory on foot or mountain bike, either on their own or with a guide. The inn also invites rest and relaxation with its comfortable rooms without TV or radio and cosy common areas that encourage conversation and interaction with other guests. More details here.
La Galouïne Inn and Restaurant (Côte-Nord)
The La Galouïne Inn is conveniently located near all the excitement of Tadoussac. Moreover, you’re only a 5- to 10-minute walk from the wharf where you can go on a whale-watching excursion or visit the Marine Mammal Interpretation Centre (CIMM). This charming and friendly inn also has, under its roof, a restaurant, a boutique and one of the best terraces in town! I bet you’re already imagining yourself there, with a drink in hand. Take advantage of your stay at the inn to enjoy its cuisine featuring regional flavours. The chef will also be very happy to introduce you to the inn’s specialities, including smoked duck and fish.
