La Gare Auberge Restaurant Bar
Ranked #1 of 1 Labelle B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Our family was cycling the Petit Train du Nord, and this was an overnight stop. We were on the family plan, with dinner and breakfast included.

Both restaurant and rooms are in the historic Gare (station) right on the path. The rooms are on the second floor, in the old stationmaster's residence, and are lovingly furnished with antiques. Our beds - a large double and a cot for our adult daughter travelling with us - were very comfortable. Unfortunately in view of an unseasonable heat wave and high humidity, the rooms have neither air conditioning nor ceiling fan, and the oscillating floor fan could do little to cool the room. That probably wouldn't be noticed in the normally cool evenings of a normal summer, nor the other three seasons of the year.

As is common in B&B's, especially historic ones, the bathroom is shared, but the hosts have effected a good compromise. One room is an (again antique-feeling) full bath with clawfoot tub. But another room has been converted to have two showers with private attached changing cubicle, and two private toilet stalls and a sink. As a result there's little chance of having to wait.

A note to cyclists: there are bike racks (and picnic tables) as part of this stop on the Petit Train du Nord, and then the owners will move your bikes into the restaurant to overnight once it closes. A good compromise.

The owners, Jay and Danielle, also operate the restaurant and bar on the first floor of the station. The food was excellent! For dinner I had steak-frites, a typical dish, and not only was the steak unexpectedly upgraded (a New York strip) but the fries were absolutely first rate, slender and crisp. Breakfast was even more sumptuous, especially all the homemade bread, and the setting on the outdoor terrace made it all the better.

Definitely a worthwhile stopover to dine, and (if the air is cool) to stay the night!

Room Tip: The rooms are all lovely, but (like any old home) hot when the summer air is still, and there's...

We've just installed a brand AC system so our rooms will be even more comfortable! Hope to see you again at La Gare :)

We stayed overnight while cycling the P'tit Train du Nord pathway. Our room was lovely with really nice sheets. The bathrooms are shared but very nice with one having a nice bathtub. Very quiet at night.

The food at the pub is excellent. They bake all their own bread. We had nice deep fried calamari, delicious hamburgers, and the next day, at breakfast, an amazing crepe with mushrooms and bechamel sauce.

They lock your bike inside overnight as well - so no worries here. I would stay there again. Reserve early as there are only 5 rooms.

My husband and I were there last night for sleeping, little charming auberge, very very clean, fresh white linen, with all what was needed for our stay. Special attention to little details. This morning breakfast on the terrace was excellent , cafe au lait, special crepes with mushroom and cheese or the sweet one with nutela and fruits, in all a very pleasant experience. Would definetly recommend this place .

We were a group of 10 cyclists, we arrived at La Gare Auberge after a long rainy bike ride. We were welcomed as if they had been waiting for us all day. The place is beautifully quaint, the rooms all so inviting. The hosts are so very hospitable and helpful. They catered to our needs as no other place ever has. In a nutshell here are the top reasons to stay at La Gare, whether you are cycling on the P'tit Train du Nord or whether you are in the Tremblant area and don't want to stay in "artificial land".
1- The service : Exceptional
2- The food: All home made and amazing..did i mention the duck fat fries...
3- The accommodation: just perfect for our group..we had the whole inn
4- The food: did I mention the Café au Lait?
5- The owners and the staff: very friendly and passionate about their work..you can feel it
6- the food: did I mention the best steak and frites i ever had?

Thanks for the wonderful stay!

The Auberge is located in an old railway station that the owners have made into a B & B and restaurant. It is extremely clean and comfortable and the experience of sleeping in a railway station is unique. About the food, well it is absolutely superb. We had supper and breakfast and they have really outdone themselves here. It was absolutely superb. Accommodation, hospitality, and food - fantastic. What more could you ask for? Highly recommended.

I recently visited La gare Labelle and I was very satisfied. The food was very good and the rooms are well decorated. It is very convenient if you are doing "Le Petit Train du Nord' trail since it is directly on it. They have a nice bar area with a big TV . The food is homemade and is reasonably priced. I would stay there again for sure.

Room Tip: The room with the Queen bed is very nice and big

We based our cycle trip at this lovely inn bordering the Petit Train du Nord path. The rooms are quaint but clean and well-appointed with nice period touches. Daniele and Jay are wonderful hosts and the food was spectacular - delicious breads and soups and unique sauces and condiments all made on the premises. We were treated extra special with Jay keeping the pub open (even though it was officially closed) so we could watch the hockey game (and our team won...). We will definitely return and send friends and family.

Room Tip: Good choice for families travelling together in that the 5 rooms offer different configurations.
