We opted for a road trip for our Summer vacation with B&Bs as our only accommodations for 2 weeks. We chose Aux Traditions for it's location as we wanted to visit La Mauricie National Park.
This was not the most fancy of our B&Bs but it felt like home or at least like staying with friends. The hosts Meggie and Venci are truly friendly people. It is obvious that they love and enjoy people which will make running a B&B a joy for them. They are new in the business and have found their niche.
The house is an old Quebec styled one from a long gone era. It is over 100 years old, but they have restored it so it's appealing and comfortable. The first floor with the kitchen, dining and sitting area has a beautiful hard wood floor with lovely area carpets. The bedrooms are very basic but cozy. There is a suite of 2 rooms with a private bath and 3 that share a bathroom. There is no central air but even at the end of August it was very comfortable with the window open. There is a fan which we didn't have to use.
Meggie provides a delicious and filling breakfast and she likes seeing her guests enjoy it. She will also provide an authentic Balkan dish for supper if you request it. We opted for this meal with a vegetarian twist and were happy that we did.
Meggie is Bulgarian and her husband is Greek. It must be a good blend for hospitality. You notice their gregarious nature the moment you set foot in their home. Meggie speaks excellent English and several other languages. They are both well educated.
If you are in this area, consider a stay at Aux Traditions. It is just outside Mauricie National Park not far from Trois-Rivières in Quebec. For a visit to this park it could not be more conveniently located.
