I stayed for two nights in the blue room, the only room left, with two single beds, when I booked. As I was travelling solo, this was perfect. Meggie & Venelin are very welcoming. The Inn is kept very clean, we enter through the back patio door and remove our shoes. The Inn is very quiet at night and the shared bathroom is spotless. The back garden is a haven with a hammock, picnic tables and parasols. The copious breakfast is delicious and the ambiance is very cozy as the guests from France, Italy and Montreal, get acquainted. Meggie knows Mauricie Park and surrounding area very well, which makes the visit even more rewarding. There is a little communal fridge on the second floor, for your perishables. Not to be missed is the authentic Balkan supper, home made by our hosts. Made with care and extremely delicious, thank you Meggie & Venelin..

Very comfortable room in a great little B&B. The owners were really friendly and gave us some great advice about the local area, including places for dinner. Very convenient location for access to the La Mauricie National Park.

We stayed with Meggie and Venelin for two nights in early July, during our visit to Mauricie park and felt very comfortable in their home. Overall first impression was of a well-managed B&B, with inviting exterior and interior ( wi-fi worked without any interruptions). The place was full both nights we were there, guests coming from Spain, France, Quebec. Our room was clean, cosy and, in combination with the fresh night air of Saint Jean des Piles, provided us with very restful nights. By the time we made our reservation, the only room left was with the shared bathroom but that turned out not to be an inconvenience at all. We had breakfasts on two mornings and a dinner one night; each time the food was excellent, with lots to choose from. We knew that supper starts at the same time for all guests, everyone sitting at one big table but we did not realize beforehand just how well that works in our hosts’ home… Meggie and Venelin created great atmosphere with delicious food and music then expertly conducted a conversation which engaged all the guest. There was lots of laughter around the table and we all had fantastic evening among friends, unforgettable!

Meggie and her husband (whom we called Theo by his middle name because his first name was difficult to remember) were very welcoming and charming hosts. Upon arrival we were asked to wear slippers inside and we were given a tour of the house. Meggie introduced us to the other Belgians who were staying at the B&B at the time and gave us a map of La Mauricie National Park, on which she marked the most interesting spots. We had reserved their 'table d'hôte' 3 course dinner in the evening and weren't disappointed ! Meggie is Bulgarian and Theo is Greek, and they are both good cooks. Conversation was animated, and we laughed a lot . Our room upstairs was the blue room which had two comfortable single beds. The room was very sparsely decorated and clean, and there was a refrigerator in the hall in front of our room. There was free Wifi., but no television in the room (we didn't need one) The bathroom at the end of the hall was shared with 3 other rooms, which slight inconvenience is the reason why I didn't mark this B&B as "excellent". In the morning we had an extensive breakfast with pancakes, self-made croissants, fruit, cheeses and ham,home-made jam, yoghurt and fruitjuice and excellent coffee. Close by the B&B there is a small "depanneur" (convenience store) where you can buy sandwiches etc. for your pick-nick in the National Park, which is close by.. In La Mauricie N.P. there are several lakes and viewpoints worth investigating. Before breakfast we went to Lac du Fou in order to spot wild moose, but we didn't see one. We saw a red fox and different kinds of wild birds though, and the other Belgians had seen several black bears the previous evening on an expedition with Eric Allard of the B&B Aux Berges St Maurice. This is a beautiful region to spend a few days, and we certainly recommend a stay with Meggie and Theo !
