Dear Guests,

The Auberge Saint-Antoine Family is delighted to welcome you. The health and safety of our guests as well as our team is our top priority. You will only need to take a few steps to feel welcome as you know it, or will come to know it. We hope you will consider us as you plan your next east Canada road trip. As we anticipate your visit, we invite you to carefully read our health & safety initiatives and procedures that we have put in place to provide our guests with peace of mind during their next stay. Whether it’s for a romantic weekend, or some luxury respite at the end of your drive to Quebec, we are looking forward to welcoming you very soon.

In order to comply with the new government directives, and to further ensure guest well-being, masks or face coverings are mandatory in public spaces as of July 18th 2020.  While we plan to have masks on hand for purchase, please be sure to bring a mask with you.
