“Thank you, Roland and Martina for a wonderful visit”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We loved our stay, at this B&B-wonderful Acadian hospitality. The home is beautiful, immaculate and Roland and Martina are two of the sweetest people we have ever met. Their breakfasts are superb and a wonderful atmosphere, to speak with your hosts and fellow guests. Our favorite B&B, in all of New Brunswick. Marcia and John TN, USA

Room Tip: Andy room here will be wonderful. There is one room downstairs, if you are unable to climb stairs.

Staying at this Bed and Breakfast was one of the highlights of my ten-day New Brunswick vacation. I don’t even like B&Bs; it had been over 25 years since I had stayed at one, but when you are in Acadia, you need a complete cultural experience, and this is a big part of it.

The home is directly on the main road through Caraquet. The greeting you will receive is very friendly, and the owners take time to answer all your questions. As with most B&Bs, the rooms are small, but very comfortable. The bathroom is very small (especially the shower), but modern. I was concerned about the noise from the street, but I was so tired from all the things there are to do that I slept though it.

I didn’t notice any air conditioning, and frankly, I don’t even know if it is necessary in Caraquet. My advice for summer travel is to check the forecast and then ask them when you make your reservation if it will be hot enough to need it. The room did have a ceiling fan, which is a nice touch. The best part was the light just above each side of the bed, which made reading very pleasant.

Breakfast was wonderful: a choice of three menus, all including fresh fruit. You will also be able to meet other interesting people; everybody is friendly on vacation.

I cannot recommend this B&B enough. I wish I could live here!

Scooper47’s top tips: 1. Feel the need for more security? Inside your room, the round door lock has a small tab at the top. If you lift it up, the lock cannot be opened from either side.

2. If you are ultra-sensitive to noise, do not stay at any lodging with an address on “Boul. St-Pierre,” or at least get a room in the back. That is the main highway through town. I am sensitive, and I would stay here again in a minute.

3. If you miss the Village Historique Acadien (15-minute drive west), you will miss one of the most fascinating places in North America.

We stayed at this nice place on the 28 June 2013. It is a really nice place to stay, it is so clean. We travelled a lot and it is the second time we find a place like this. The bathroom was spotless and the bed was so comfortable plus they are eco-friendly which is really good. We had an excellent breakfast the next day and plenty of coffee and the table was full of food. The décor is so nice. These people are so friendly to, when you leave it is like you are family for them and you are leaving like you come back later. We are really happy we took this place to stay. It is a place where we have to come back and we recommend it to anybody.

What an absolute gem! Beautifully restored and maintained building with immaculate cozy rooms. Very informative hosts, with lots of maps and printed information on local attractions. The breakfast in the morning could only be described as perfection. The fruit which accompanied my French toast could not have been any fresher. Five star dining in the morning! Our hosts were very friendly and welcoming, engaging all the guests at the two large tables in lively and cheerful conversation as we ate. After a really good night's sleep and a wonderful breakfast, it was almost a shame to have to depart.

What a wonderful place to stay! The proprietors were terrific hosts and Caraquet will forever remain dear to us. They made breakfast of crepes with fresh fruit, an omelette and sausage served with delicious coffee, croissants and a cheese plate. Rooms are small and cozy, extremely clean and quiet. Nice romantic getaway.

We have stayed at many very nice bed and breakfasts, but Le Poirier is in a class by itself. The property lovely and immaculate and the rooms are small but extremely comfortable, with real, heavy wood antique furnture where other inns often have modern reproductions. Breakfasts were delicious and filling, with fresh fruit, croissants, and local cheeses as well as our choice of pancakes, French toast, or eggs.

But the best part of staying at Le Poirier were the hosts, Martine and Roland Friolet, who did everything that they could to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Although they both speak English, they knew that we wanted to improve our French, so they spoke French with us slowly and patiently so that we would understand everything. They helped us find out about all the sights in and around Caraquet and with their help, we learned so much abut the Acadian Peninsula.

I'm only sorry that we didn't stay longer.

  • Liked — the kindness of the hosts
  • Disliked — nothing--everthing was wonderful
  • Tips/Secrets — there's more to do in Caraquet than you might think, so book an extra night

We stayed here Sep 2005. Our hosts Roland and Martina Friolet provided warm hospitality and knowledgable sightseeing info. Our room was Chambre No 5 Hugues which contained a queen bed, N/S, ground level, private bath, TV, DVD player; price $101.20 with taxes and discount. Group breakfast was choice of Ham & eggs or fruit crepes. This beautiful house is a 1927 Acadien homestead restored to its original splendor and furnished with antiques. Everything is immaculately clean and very comfortable.
