À L'Ancestrale B&B

Québec, Canada

À L'Ancestrale B&B is a welcoming historic gite in the town of Magog in the Eastern Townships. Tucked away on a quiet residential street, the B&B has easy access to many of the region's attractions including the lake shore, Mont Orford National Park, and the marsh on Riviere aux Cerises. Your hosts, Eric and Lyn, provide a wealth of knowledge of the area, and a warm, social atmosphere during your stay.

A lounge is available for guest use, and the hosts' sons may even serenade guests with their piano and violin. In the beautiful, curated gardens, there are plenty of places to soak up the peace and quiet, and a hot tub for relaxation at the end of a day exploring. Massage treatments are available on request, as well as bikes and canoes or kayaks.


This charming B&B with spacious, thoughtful rooms provides the warmest of welcomes from the hosts who create a sociable atmosphere and offer plenty of local knowledge.

Each of the five rooms are individually designed with antique furniture, high ceilings and fresh colors. Partnered with the high ceilings, a classic country house atmosphere is created, reminiscent of the historic houses that populate the region. Each room features large, comfortable beds, bathrobes, a hair dryer, mini-fridge, and private bathroom. Two of the rooms have an additional single bed, and the downstairs bedroom has a private entrance via the gardens.


Located on a quiet residential street in the town, the B&B is just a five-minute walk away from the high street and the shores of Lake Memphrémagog, and ten minutes from the marsh boardwalk. Mont Orford National Park is also just a ten-minute drive north for hiking and cycling. Montréal and Québec City are both about three hours away, and the town is just over the border from the USA.

Food and drink

A hearty breakfast is served each morning featuring cereals, pastries, local cheese, and a hot option, all made to order by your hosts. Hot options can include savory crepes, scrambled eggs and more. Coffee and tea are available throughout the day along with fresh fruit. Your hosts will provide you with restaurant recommendations and are always happy to offer snacks when you return to the B&B after a day exploring.
