This B&B had been recommended to us by friends who had stayed there several years before; and they were right! When we arrived, I told our host Michel I needed a small screwdriver to fix my glasses, and as soon as we had settled in, he brought a kit with several dozen. Problem solved.
The B&B itself is located at the end of a road next to a magnificent church and its cemetery. It is well situated there. It is very quiet and it is a short distance from a dirt road which soon forks, one way leading to a Grotto and the other the top of Monte Ste-Anne. Depending on your preference, you can either drive or hike to these places. The host Michel is very knowledgeable and bilingual which helped us as limited French speakers. At breakfast he was able to speak to us and the French guests as well as be an interpreter so we could converse between ourselves. He had even helped us over the phone before we had started our trip to confirm a reservation we had made at another B&B in the Gaspe' region where the host understood little English. The room was clean and well done despite the age of the property and the breakfasts were excellent with his collection of 200 or so blue decorated plates lining the walls providing a topic of conversation. However, if you really need a TV, there is only one in the common area, but not in the room. But there are 2 computers located in the entry porch that were available 24/7 to access the internet if you so desired.
If I might add, there are 2 things you might want to do when visiting the Perce' area. The Crevasse, a deeply eroded fissure in the ground just outside town, makes an interesting destination for a hike. And the boat tour and ride to Bonaventure Island is also well worth it, especially if you are able to hike across the island to see the vast colony of gannets that roost there.
