All good. Location. Pool. Tiki bar. Hot tub. Staff. All good. However, 2 small complaints. Elevators smell stale or sour. Really needs air freshener or something in which I informed the staff. Also, resort rates, resturaunt, parking fees, ect. Not family friendly. You have to pay for everything. Which is fine, just on the high side and very discouraging. Every... More

We spent several nights at this bed and breakfast and it was great. We had a room that had a separate reading room, so my husband goes to bed early and I could read there and not wake him up. We were close enough to visit the downtown area of Charlevoix and we walked there and back after some shopping.... More

Michelle and Armand are wonderful hosts! Great location and breakfasts. This was our second stay and we will be back. They have an adorable dog that is very friendly. Michelle was very accommodating with providing breakfast that I could eat (celiac disease- gluten free). Thank You!

My husband and I spent the 2nd and 3rd night of our honeymoon at the Mac Dougall House in the Beach Room which has a comfortable king sized bed, private sitting area, and private bathroom. We had a great time talking with Michelle and Armand about the B & B business. We have never felt more welcome at a B... More

My wife and I stayed in this very interesting Victorian B&B for one night in September prior to our trip to Beaver Island. We found Armand and Michelle to be very welcoming and extremely helpful during our stay. The location was great as we were able to walk to restaurants and shops in the centre of Charlevoix. Breakfast was both... More

Armand and Michelle are fantastic hosts! They were incredibly welcoming, friendly, and conversational. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our stay at the MacDougall House felt like a stay with old friends. Michelle is a fantastic cook and each breakfast we had during our stay was phenomenal. The house was beautiful and well maintained, with a cozy, homey... More

Armand and Michelle are most gracious hosts, so friendly and accommodating, and the breakfasts are superb. Beautiful, well-maintained house and grounds, within easy walking distance of downtown Charlevoix. Only drawbacks in my opinion are the steep stairs to the rooms and the proximity to the highway. But positives far outweigh negatives. We don't get to Charlevoix (my home town) often,... More

In September my sister and I stayed here for one night while on our 'up north' road trip. Most B&Bs require a two night minimum stay, so we were thrilled to finally stay in a nice house that didn't mind just the one night stay. The owners are lovely people and very welcoming. The breakfast was delicious and the Teddy... More

Armand and Michelle were made to do this... run a B&B. The house from 1896 is so full of character and history, such a beautiful dining room table, all full of guests and a fresh cooked breakfast. So close to downtown.... we had an amazing time and will be coming back EVERY year for certain! We loved it throughout.
