We knew nothing of Magog until we started planning a trip from Boston to Quebec City/Baie St. Paul. Magog seemed to be a good halfway point between Boston and Baie St. Paul, so I found Au Manoir de la rue Merry on Booking.com. It had great reviews, and the price was reasonable! We left Boston, expecting to make it to Magog by dinnertime. Unfortunately, we were in stop and go traffic out of Boston, which doubled our travel time. We didn't arrive until after 9pm, but we called ahead to let the owners know we'd be late. One of the owners met us upon arrival and was friendly, and spoke mostly French. My 7 years of French in American public schools didn't serve me well, but we managed to figure out where we could get a late night dinner. Hungry after the long drive, we found a restaurant nearby within walking distance, and commented on how much we love the fact that Canadians always serve mayonnaise or some kind of aioli with their fries...but I digress. Our room was fitted with its own tiny bathroom and shower, had wine glasses for our bottle of wine we brought back from the restaurant, and chocolates. The rooms were cozy and the beds comfortable. They also have a pool. Breakfast was out of this world, with a variety of fruits and berries, strong coffee, juice, and egg souffle. We took some time in the morning to walk around Magog, which was a charming, beautiful area on Lake Memphremagog. Magog and Au Manoir was such a pleasant surprise and a perfect place from which to launch to our next destination on our 1 year wedding anniversary trip: Quebec City and Baie St. Paul!
