“A Whale of a Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

After our fifth stay with Louise and Yves we are home safe and sound but this morning I had to make my own breakfast!! The memories of our time with them and the wildlife of the region will have to last until we can return. This very upscale log cabin home is a jewel just a couple of minutes off #138 outside Longue-Rive. It has all the amenities, nestled next to a salt marsh and a huge sand beach. After having an excellent and varied breakfast overlooking the marsh you can walk either the marsh or the beach for excellent birding and vistas of the ocean and the nearby town. As always Louise and Yves made arrangements for us to spend time with the local whale research group and we spent many wondrous hours out in the zodiacs watching the whales, seals and birds of the estuary. While you will find numerous B & B options when you visit this area, you will find none with as warm and welcoming an atmosphere as the large log cabin style home operated by Yves and Louise. We can't wait til the next time!!

my girl friend and i went to this region two years ago , and it was amazing . the propery alone of baie du soleil couchant is so beauitful right on the st lawrence river, can walk for a great distance on the beach and see ducks and wild life in the ponds in front of this log home.
The breakfast was french , and the owners and so helpful in finding areas for us to explore.
We went whale watching , spent time on the shore lines , and swam in a fresh water lake inbetween tadoussac and escomins on the hwy 138. beautiful.
My husband and i are returning to baie do soleil couchant this summer 2012 .

Room Tip: all great the up stairs of the bed and breakfast is filled with books and veiws to the outside

If you are planning a trip up to Charlevoix to see the whales I would consider this gite (bed and breakfast). It is beyond Tadoussac by about 30 minutes-1 hour and worth the extra drive. In contrast to the commericial side of Tadoussac, Longue Rive is very peaceful, quiet, and not touristy. Our hosts helped us set up whale watching very close by that was not super busy at all. We saw many whales and had a great time. In addition, the hosts offer dinner also (I think it was $20 extra per person including wine). This was awesome. You will like it if you enjoy that Sunday family dinner home cooking feeling. We ate at a big table with all of the house guests and some other friends and relatives. It was really lovely and unexpected. Nice fun weekend away!!
