“Le chat botte”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

Question - I wrote a review for Chat Botte - which we loved! However, I was not a member at the time. Does this mean the review was not used? I did receive confirmation that it was "sent".
Just curious as to how the process works.
My husband and I spent a romantic two days at the Chat Botte. The house is beautiful - we especially enjoyed the breakfasts in the veranda gazebo. Not only were they scrumptious, but creative and perfect in quantity! Nicole even went to the trouble of getting whole wheat flour when I mentioned a sensitivity to white flour. She created a wonderful aparagus crepe dish the next morning!

Room Tip: The house is away from the main street so there is no issue with noise. The suite has the tub in t...

My wife and I stayed here for 4 days at the end of July. We had a marvellous stay. Nico was a wonderful hostess and her breakfasts were a culinary highlight of our stay in North Hatley, a gem of a a small town. We were able to go for long, early- morning cycle rides through the scenic countryside, then come back for a stellar and relaxed late breakfast on the sunny porch of Le Chat. It was a great base to explore the Eastern Townships

A lovely B&B with a host who makes your stay exceptional. We stayed in the largest room, the Carabas Suite, and it was a perfect place to spend our anniversary. Nico's breakfasts are some of the best food we had on our trip - other reviewers have pointed out that the meal can take a little over an hour, but it never feels slow (there are 3 courses) and the dining area on the porch is so nice.

From the B&B it is just a short, pleasant walk to "downtown" North Hatley, where there are a few nice restaurants and shops (and the lake). North Hatley is a good area to stay in if you want to explore the Eastern Townships, we were a short drive from most of our destinations.

Oh, and if you are concerned about cats (my wife is slightly allergic), don't worry! There is only one cat, and he was outside the entire time (and is never allowed into the bedrooms).

Room Tip: Carabas Suite is the largest and has its own bathroom, shower and fireplace

The reviews are spot on. This place is what you hope for in a B&B.

The three course breakfast was better than any restaurant and the rooms, while small, are cosy and tastefully decorated.

My only small issue was breakfast starting so late. By the time you finish 3 courses half the day is gone. If you're there for a slow weekend it won't bother you.

Recommend a pint at the nearby Pilnser Pub for local beer and great service.

As I noted in another of my B & B reviews, the host can make all the difference to a stay, and the first comment I have to make is on Le Chat Botte's friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful host Nicole. She made us feel so welcome and she took a real interest in our comfort and enjoyment of our stay in the area. You will know by the time that you finish just one of her breakfast services (more on these later) that she takes food seriously. It should come as no surprise, then, that she was familiar with every other good place to eat in the region and both of her local restaurant suggestions were excellent. The house itself is an older property but she keeps it very clean and it features inviting public areas both indoors and out. We had breakfasts twice on the veranda in the morning sun. And when Nicole describes her breakfasts as "gastronomique", believe it. Fresh pressed juice and coffee, three courses including dessert, and all of it prepared lovingly from scratch. Nicole told us that she serves breakfast between 9 and 10:30 and we took that full hour and a half to eat all three mornings. You could conceivably get up early, go out for a bike ride or a walk, and return by 9 for breakfast. However, as a fellow reviewer noted, it is not a meal that gets prepared early or boxed up for guests who need to make a quick departure; it's best to bear this routine in mind when making your plans. One minor downside to our room's appointments was the lack of shower head in the big soaker tub, but it certainly wasn't the end of the world. Nicole provided robes, slippers, and plenty of bed linens for any guest needs, along with bottled water to stay hydrated during the day's activities (we did a fair amount of hiking and walking). If you are planning on staying here, keep one more thing in mind: Nicole hinted that she was considering selling up and doing some travelling, so there may be a time limit on your opportunity to experience this gem of a B & B, at least under her management.

My lover and I stayed in the Marquis bedroom. The room and house are absolutely gorgeous. Decorated in very good taste. I think some of the pictures uploaded here are old because the living room looked much better. The house has 4 outside sitting areas, each one is a marvel. There is also a private beach on the lake and a small river just outside the home. You hear the sound of the river and the birds on the terrace! Nico, our host, is a gem! She is passionate about her b&b and it shows. Every little detail is thought of. The breakfasts were amazing! We are used to very good food and we didn't think we would find such 5 star delights in North Hatley. Bravo! We will be back for sure.

We stayed for two nights at this most charming place. Nico, the hostess, was an absolute delight. She was quick to give amazing suggestions on where to eat and what to do in the surrounding areas. She even lent out her own bikes to us (free of charge) when we discovered there were no bike rentals in the town!
Nico's breakfasts are sure to please even the pickiest of food critics. Every breakfast amazingly includes an appetizer, a main, and a dessert. Not only were they delicious and filling, they are visually stunning in their presentation!
The room was very beautifully decorated and immaculately cleaned everyday! The bed we slept in would rival any bed at the Ritz for sure with its luxurious pillow top!
Make sure to check out Nico's amazing artwork when you visit.....We will definitely return!
