This prize-winning restoration (2001) of a turn of the century two-family house with what used to be a doctor's office at the end of the street (now occupied [conveniently] by a small store) is intimate but charming. As you wend your way through the buildings' interconnected passageways and even up to the roof for a nighttime repast, you'll get to meet (in photographs) some of the owner's ancestors. The staff, especially the ever-attentive Claudette who makes sumptuous breakfasts, are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Alain, the owner who restored these previously abandoned buildings, lives on Isle de Orlean so if you are touring during your stay in Quebec, ask him for advice on what to see and where to go there on a day trip.
In 1900 this was the extent of the city. Up the hill was all famers' fields. Rue St. Jean started here and descended into the city. The twin towers on the building which Alain recreated from a 1910 photo found in the city archives, represent the two most important institutions in the city. One spire represents the church; the other, a battlement, is the military. A perfect setting to begin your visit to Quebec.
