What a great place right on the river. The owner, Pauline, was incredibly friendly, welcoming and accommodating. In order to give us a room with a balcony overlooking the river she had to hurridly put the room back together after a new paint job. The rooms we had were spacious, clean and well-appointed. The dining rooms face the water. Since this was a last-minute reservation we did not have the opportunity to have dinner here but I wish I had taken a picture of my breakfast crepe topped high with fresh fruit - it was as lovely as the view. A spotting scope in the dining room was a great addition. And it was great to be able to clamber down a few steep staircases and boulders to get to the river. The Auberge was a great stopover as we traveled through the area.

Hello Deb, I thank you very much for all the details you put in describing our place and the manner we like to welcome people at the auberge. I like to spend a long time with our invitees to ensure that you will appreciate the right places around. So I hope you have enjoyed your hiking at Rivière-Éternité and L'Anse-Saint-Jean. For your purpose, the room Lac is the one I spotted for renovation for next year. Even if it is comfortable now, it will be improved. Say hello! to Elaine and Ed! Thank you again! Pauline

We have just returned from an off season trip to the Saguenay area, mainly for hiking. The host (Pauline) was extremely helpful providing us with local information, including trails, and she cooked the most delicious breakfasts! We are English speaking and enjoyed learning a little French from Pauline. The Auberge has magnificent views of the fiord and is located close to area services and attractions.

Room Tip: Fiord view

Hello Phyllis and Gault,

We liked our stay at the Auberge. We stayed 2 nights, very enjoyable, quiet location, wonderful views. 5 stars for the breakfast. Host is very friendly. La Baie is 15mn away and we enjoyed the birdwatching experience ...lots of snow geeze preparing for migration. Dining is mainly in La Baie.

We spent a wonderful long weekend in the Auberge and we came back home fully satisfied and relaxed. The location is great. Nestled in a very quiet part of the fjords, the hotel offers a magnificent view to the river and the mountain, while being very close to La Baie. The hotel rooms are nicely decorated and extremely clean. The big windows make you fill like you are surrounded by the nature. The furniture is new and modern-looking. The restaurant and the common areas are stylishly decorated. They provide visitors with plenty of magazines for every taste, including National Geographic, some Encyclopedias, and brochures. The manager, Pauline, is a very friendly person dedicated to her visitors. She knows a lot about the region's geographical, economical and touristic aspects and really enjoys shearing all of her knowledge with the visitors. We had breakfasts only and they were absolutely delicious. We will remember Pauline’s hospitality for a long time and if we have a chance, we will definitely go back there.

Room Tip: The longer, the better! Le plus, le mieux!

Marieta, I wish to thank you very much for your appreciation of the Auberge and the surroundings. As I say, you, our invites, are so knd with us that we cannot resist to your charm!
Of course, I like very much what I do and inform people about my adoptive region is a real pleasure!

I knew when booking that the room "Montagne" would please you.

I also thank you for all the pictures you put on this website. I stay here and I did not have that picture from the beach through the west side of the bay.

Thank you again for your nice company and good luck in all your projects! Pauline XX XX

This was a perfect place to spend a couple of nights while touring the Saguenay area. The auberge is located 10 minutes from La Baie (where there are dining options) on a spot right above the fjord, with marvelous views from every room. It is 40 minutes from the national park and Pauline, who was a great, warm host, gave us useful tips on what to see while in the area.
The only downside of the place is the bathroom amenities - cheap paper-thin soap, shampoo in a single-use packet, and very unstable water temperature in the shower. However, overall it's an excellent place to stay and we will gladly be back.

Hello Sir!
I wish to thank you very much for your general comment.
Of course, the last part of it makes me ask you some more details you could send to me via our e-mail address. Until now, everyone has seemed satisfied with the quality of our paper (2 plys) and soap (not the smallest one!) and shampoo. What would you suggest us to do? Maybe to offer, if wanted, different amenities... I will, for my part, check with my representative. I will be pleased to greet you again if you come back! Thank you in advance for your further comments! Pauline

The lodge is located in a beautiful place above the lake. The views alone are worth paying for. The owner Pauline is very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great too !
