“A gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We had a wonderful stay at l'Auberge, following a few "average" stays at gites around the Quebec region. The location, 12kms from the National Park entrance is as good as it gets in this area, and the welcome from the owners is truly wonderful. The rooms are small and "lodge" like, but the lakefront location, the excellent food (at breakfast and dinner) and the overall experience truly make up for it. We will come back.

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I am contemplating my departure from this absolutely lovely auberge, not 10 minutes from the entrance to the equally wonderful La Mauricie National Park in Quebec. Jean-Marcel, a furniture-maker by trade, built the place by himself and his craftsmanship shows. Louise, his wife, is a charming hostess and a wonderful cook. I've eaten roast rabbit, quail stuffed with caribou and a desserts that sent my diet into a skydive. The setting couldn't be more pleasant. On the shores of a small lake, it is possible to take one of their canoes to paddle along with the resident loon.

The rooms are spacious and very clean (Denise and Linda come each day to change the sheets and such). I didn't try the sauna, but I'm sure it would be relaxing.

And, staying here puts you just 10 minutes from the SW entrance to the park, where I managed to see about 55 bird species, even though it is rather late in the breeding season.

So...come to Saint-Mathieu and stay with Jean-Marcel and Louise. You won't want to leave!
