Peace and quiet at the edge of Richelieu

The Bed and Breakfast Aux Rêves d’Antan promises a pleasant stay full of rest. And flavors too, because the chef cooks local products.

It is in the beautiful heritage home Xiste Préfontaine build in 1890, in Saint-Marc-sur-Richelieu, one discovers the cottage In the old dreams. The Victorian-style residence was once home to the Hotel St-Marc, who welcomed American sailors whose ships docked on the quay of the Richelieu River, just opposite. Since then, the families have succeeded until the house is transformed into a Bed and breakfast in 1998. Seven years later, Carole Morin and Paul Lupien acquired it and they still operate.

Recently renovated, the property offers five bedrooms, all with private bathrooms. Four have a queen bed, while a has two single beds, perfect for traveling with friends. Those on the Richelieu River off a certain romanticism and calm, like Eglantine bedroom with canopy bed. We like the old-time charm of painted radiators. And we like to enjoy the benefits of a therapeutic bath and quiet moments.

Local product sets the table

Under the same roof, dishes prepared with local produce are available at the table At the flavors of yesteryear. We start the day with breakfast with fresh fruit and a chicken cretonnade, homemade pastries and a hot food choices (waffles, eggs, etc.). At lunch and dinner, guinea fowl, chicken, maple products, goat cheese, among others, are revealed in the dishes. The chef prepares dishes based on vegetable products, producers and traders in the region.
