Auberge des Cevennes
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 July 2012

This truly was a hidden gem tucked within the incredible fjord of Québec. Located just a short and very scenic four hours by car from Québec City, we arrived in the beautiful, tiny town of L'Anse Saint Jean. Here, you are truly off the tourist map and have escaped into a beautiful part of the world you probably never knew existed! The Auberge des Cévennes certainly exceeded our expectations. Traveling in a group of three, upon arrival at the hotel, to our much appreciated surprise, two of the staff spoke English, which we truly weren't expecting. Our room was on the second floor. The staircases were a bit narrow and rickety, one outside and one inside. A charming veranda was just outside our room with tables and chairs and was a nice place to relax. The hotel has a small, hillside garden and a view of the fjord and the river, yet mostly a spectacular view of the mountains and waterfall. The door from the veranda to the room was very difficult to open, however the door between to the room and the upstairs hallway was just fine. The room was rather small, yet fit us all comfortably with three single beds, a small television and television stand, two small chairs and table, plus complimentary miniature refrigerator, which we greatly enjoyed! Plus, free wi-fi internet access was included in our stay! Great plus!!! All guests also have access to a small, upstairs lounge area with a fireplace and some sightly worn furniture. The room was kept immaculately clean and so was the bathroom. The bathroom was a bit florescent, very white yet it showed it was spotless and kept very well. However, it was absolutely tiny and we could barely fit in the bathroom! It did contain a fully functional sink, toilet and shower/tub with satisfactory toiletries and towels stocked by the staff during daily housekeeping. We enjoyed breakfast in the hotel which is included in the price of the stay. The continental breakfast was quite nice, with a croissant, yogurt, fresh fruits and crêton (pork pâté, a local specialty) as well as good coffee and tea. The dining room was kept very nice and had a nice view of the mountain and waterfall. However, the overall location of the hotel wasn't excellent. It is very close to the "oldest covered bridge in Canada" and is very scenic, plus isn't too far by car from a hiking trail to the base of the waterfalls and a lookout point over the fjord. Bring sunscreen, sunglasses, lots of bug spray and hope for good weather! It rained every day during our trip and the insects in the woods were horrendous! We still had fun though. The hotel is about a twenty minute walk one-way or three minute drive to the town at the end of the very busy small street. In town is just one very quaint shop, a lovely rocky beach and pier with a gorgeous view of the pristine fjord. If you're staying for more than one evening, eat at the hotel! Locals and other tourists come to eat dinner at the hotel even if they aren't staying here! The food was delicious. The steak was a bit undercooked, but delicious, with local produce and flavors of maple and herbs found within the dishes. Surprisingly, you pay for everything upon checkout! Don't even think of leaving tips after a meal or paying upon checkin. Everything was a superb value too, and about half of what we were expecting! If you ever come to L'Anse Saint Jean, we highly recommend this inn because of their wonderful hospitality, homelike essence and overall fabulous experience. If you're expecting a luxury hotel, don't come here, but if you're looking for a far-flung gorgeous escape with a taste of the comforts of home, this is the place for you.

Room Tip: All rooms are basically the same. Ours had a satisfactory view yet with a wonderful shared veranda w...

My husband and I spent 2 enjoyable days at L'Auberge des Cevennes, in June. Our suite overlooked the river and a charming covered bridge. The room and bathroom were immaculate. The hosts could not have been more welcoming - even giving our car battery a boost when we needed it!
Breakfasts included many choices, and the dinners were delicious! The inn has a reasonably extensive but affordable wine list.
Even if you are not planning to stay at the inn, it is worth making a dinner reservation there.
The inn is just a short 5 minute drive from the departure point for cruising on the fjord.

Room Tip: Several suites have their own balconies.

This was a lovely place to stay before our Kayaking trip on the Saguenay Fjord. Great food and service. It was well priced and very comfortable.

We wandered into Anse St Jean without hotel reservations and Auberge Des Cevennes was a gem of a find at a reasonable price. Staff were very welcoming and the food was very good. Our suite had a great view of the bay and a fireplace.

This little Inn is really beautiful. The Dining room and front of the hotel faces a covered bridge and a small river which runs thru the town about half a mile down the street.

There is long covered balconies around the sides and back of the hotel which are nice to sit on and relax.

The owners are very helpful and so welcoming and the room was impeccably clean.

All the rooms are different, some are large others are smaller and all tastefully decorated (romantic old fashioned). Our room was facing the back on the last floor (3 floors) - There is no elevators though. It was a suite but the rate was the same as any other rooms. One rom of the suite had 2 double bed and the other room was a sitting room with a fireplace, books, 2 small tables and 4 chairs. There was free wireless internet throughout althought it was sometime weak in our room. We had a tv, ceiling fans, coffee maker, mini-fridge, alarm-clock, hairblower. The bathroom was stocked with shampoo, soaps and bath gel.

The package included a sumptuous 4 course Dinner (French cuisine) and delicious breakfast served in the dining room overlooking the river. The rates were very reasonnable ($65/pers for room and meals in high season)

I highly recommend this little Inn - L'anse-St-Jean is a very beautiful area and the perfect spot to enjoy a short cruise in the Saguenay Fjord
