My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with a Quebec trip around Gaspe Peninsula. The highlight was our night at Gite La Mer La Montagne, located on the water, but walking distance from downtown Carleton. Roger and Alice are very welcoming, and for us as USA visitors it was wonderful having hosts who were English-speaking. The room was gorgeous, with a great view of the harbor, and a private balcony with two chairs and a table for early coffee or sunset wine moments. Absolutely clean and neat, and very comfortable beds.Roger and Alice have ready suggestions of sights to see and restaurants, and we followed all their suggestions. Their suggested restaurant, the nearby Le Marin d'eau Deuce, was spectacular, out-rivaling all the finest restaurants in Quebec City and New York City. Alice and Roger give you a huge, full menu breakfast, made to order for you. The best pan cakes I ever had! The hosts are well-travelled hosts, speaking French and German as well as English, and can give you insights on the local culture, government, history, and politics, which enhanced our appreciation for Gaspe, Acadians, Quebec, and Canada. If you are touring Gaspe, be sure to stay here. We wanted to avail ourselves of their bikes and tour the area, but we ran out of time. Next time we will stay longer and bike the area.
