Fantastic place. The pictures on the website don't do it justice. I can't believe the prices either--it seems like they should be charging at least twice the rate. This is the kind of place where you feel like you are staying at the place of your best friend's super-cool and wealthy rich relative, who loves life and wants you to feel happy and at home. Seriously, we left feeling like we were indebted to them.
The rooms are cozy, with fun colors and decorated with great taste. Incredibly romantic. Great views of the river from your room. The second floor has a jacuzzi and sauna, with a cd player and cups for your wine or beer. Also a lovely living area with beautiful comfy sofas and a porch overlooking the river. We found this to be a beautiful and cozy place to read books while it rained. The hosts are awesome--they take pleasure in you enjoying yourself.
The hosts are also amazing chefs (and I'm picky about food). The breakfast is solid, with eggs cooked to perfection, freshly baked croissants, nice meats, fresh fruits and great coffee with warmed milk. The dinners are out of this world gourmet, featuring meats they've hunted themselves. My sense is that they've studied cooking professionally in France. Quite pricey though (40 dollar main courses), so I'd recommend booking a room/dinner package.
The one drawback of the area is that the restaurants in a 45 minute radius of this place are truly horrible. (Thought we did hear that restaurants in Les Flores were decent, they just close early and are closed on Monday and Tuesday.) Plan to eat here if you can.
If you live in Quebec City or Montreal, this place should be your go to romantic retreat for a weekend or anniversary. If you're traveling to either city, definitely make a trip here (it's about halfway in between) and enjoy the beautiful region of lakes, low hills, and wildlife. I will definitely make the trip back.
