First off the details: we rented the Garden Room, featuring a king-sized bed and a direct access to the upstairs bathroom. Be warned though: you have to share it with the two other bedrooms on the same floor. Manon, unbeknownst to me at the time, made arrangements with the other guests and they were nice enough to use the downstairs bathroom for most of the time, so we had a gorgeous bathroom almost completely for ourselves.
The room was impeccable and the whole house has genuine charm: rustic feel, beautiful and recently renovated bathrooms, super clean, well decorated. Manon is a great host who made sure our needs were met before we even arrived at the location.
Upon our arrival, we took our time exploring her property and its half dozen sitting/lounging areas, including a charming backyard. We had a crisp bottle of rosé, using the ice bucket and glasses Manon had left for us.
Manon's breakfasts were perfect: eggs Benedict day one, french crepes with fresh fruit and bacon on day two. We had left her a note the night before, and she was nice enough to wake up nice and early to prepare the breakfast for us, since we wanted to head out early.
The location completely took us by surprise: Chelsea is awesome! A world-class Spa (largest in North America), Gatineau Park, a couple of great French restaurants, a quaint Pub, bakery, cafés and ice-cream parlour and more. And Manon's B&B is seconds, at most minutes by walk, of all of it.
For a great weekend of pure fun and leisure, you can't go wrong at Auberge Old Chelsea. Highly recommended.
