I really cannot say enough good things about this place. It is pure heaven. My boyfriend and I have stayed at many nice hotels and auberges around the world, and this one is at the top for sure. La Malbaie is a gorgeous area, so tranquil and vast. We live in Montreal and it was our first time visiting; we couldnt believe we waited so long!
Sylvain greeted us upon arrival and he was beyond wonderful. He has such a bright and friendly disposition, we were put immediately at ease. The house itself is not too large, but is beautifully renovated. It is directly on the water, you really cant get any closer. When he brought us up to our room (la brunante), I literally did a happy dance for like 10 minutes. I cannot really explain how wonderful the bedroom and private bathroom was...and the view. This is the kind of view you would have to pay 400$ a night for any where else. It sounds corny but we felt so lucky to be there. The room was equipped with a huge king size bed, two comfortable chairs, a flat screen tv (with surround sound!!!!), a blue ray player, music player etc. The bathroom was extremely modern with high end finishes, had a huge soaking tub and separate shower.
Breakfast was simply outstanding as well. Really different than what you get at other b&bs. Freshly squeezed peach juice, berries and some kind of lemon bread, eggs with smoked salmon, fruit and a blueberry chocolate tart for dessert. In the summer, you have the choice of eating outside on the deck.
This place is highly in demand, and Sylvain told us that he is almost completely booked until september. We were really lucky to get a room at the last minute, only because there was a cancellation. Book early, and be sure to book for as long as you can. Honestly, I didnt want to sleep that night because the view from the room was one of the most gorgeous things Ive ever seen.
This place is such a hidden gem, really one of a kind. It is so obvious that Sylvain and his wife have gone out of their way to make peoples vacations really memorable. It is rare to find people like that. I am extremely picky when it comes to chosing places to stay, and this place is the perfect mix of homeyness and luxury.
Let me know if you have any questions!:)
