In a house full of history, Le Canadien offers an enchanting stay that will charm you from the moment you walk through the doors.
The house was built by blacksmith and merchant François Létourneau, on land acquired from Michel Blais, first granted to him by Lord Antoine Juchereau Duchesnay. The house’s construction began in 1793 and was completed in 1800. The purlin frame is built according to traditional workmanship, with lumber squared by an axe, including tenon, mortise and peg joinery.
The house remained in the Létourneau family for 210 years, until your hosts acquired it in 2010. To preserve its heritage character, the house was restored with its original architectural features. Today, it offers comforts and amenities that will make your stay a truly unique experience.
THE OWNERS Sylvie & Yves offer you a warm welcome!
In 2010, Sylvie and Yves acquired this magnificent stone house, built on 18 beautiful acres, with the intention of turning it into tourist accommodations. A calm oasis has been crafted for vacationing guests or passers-by, perfect for great conversation, much-needed rest and the chance to create unforgettable memories.
Sylvie and Yves’ personalities and experiences make them hosts that you will remember fondly for years.
