This is a beautifully maintained B&B on a quiet street within very easy walking distance of the heart of Magog. The bedrooms are decorated with detail and taste. The breakfast was quite elegant. The owners are charming, warm people and very helpful. And they had no problem with those of us whose French is useless. A perfect stay!

A great B&B in Magog Qc run by two great hosts Rene and Elysa! Wonderfully interesting breakfasts and great knowledge of the areas restaurants and attractions. Rene and Elysa make you feel at home from the beginning and it carried through until we left after a two night relaxing stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely B&B. Elysa and Rene were wonderful hosts and served a memorable breakfast. The primary shopping street in Magog and a nice waterfront park are only a few blocks away. The restaurants are very good. Our room was very clean.

We booked 2 rooms a couple of days before arrival and had to cancel one of the rooms 5 hours after booking. Monique insisted she could have sold the room, even though it was not rebooked that evening, or the next day or evening. Our room smelled musty and Monique's attitude really put a damper on the beginning of our... More
