The village of Grandes-Piles is considered one of Québec's most beautiful communities. In Mauricie, Grandes-Piles is known as the cradle of log driving. Our ancestral house, built at the turn of the century, housed the first village bank. Near the heart of the village the house is situated in one of the most beautiful area facing the federal pier, close to the city park, offering a splendid view of the majestic St-Maurice river.
Our three bedrooms garantee confort and privacy. You are invited to relax in the veranda, listening to the music of birds while your eyes feast on the river and mountains landscape. In the evening sit around the wood stove and warm your heart to new friends while enjoying conversation.
Our bedrooms have been named in memory of those forgotten or anonymous mothers, sisters and spouses of pioneers.
house sits on a large lot with facilities for outdoor relaxation,
fire place, BBQ grill, picnic tables and a splendid view of the
river. You may also choose to use our canoe to drift gently on the calm
waters of the river.
In the village or near-by many types of activities can be enjoyed: " Village du Bûcheron " a lively forestry museum dedicated to the history of our region's pioneers, a documented cruise on the St-Maurice river, cross country trails, horse-back riding and more. A few kilometers away we offer " Mauricie National Park " one of the most beautiful in Canada, " La Cité de l'Énergie " presenting a multimedia and holographic show unique in Québec, sugar shacks, a buffalo farm and many more worthwhile fun activities!
Life flows gently in our small serene village according to the rythm of the river.
Summing up, " La Mauricie " is a very diversified region where all is possible from cross-country hiking to adventure tourism.
Your enjoyment, well-being and rest is our B&B's goal.
