The Maison de l'Échouerie

is located on the seafront in Bonaventure, isolated from Route 132, at the mouth of the Cullen’s Brook on the Baie des Chaleurs. With no immediate neighbours and with direct and private access to the beach, it enjoys an exceptional view of the sea and the mountains.

A contemporary house with abundant windows illuminating a large minimalist common space, the Maison de l'Échouerie has a number of terraces opening to the sea and the countryside. Bordered by hedges of wild roses that bloom from St. Jean-Baptiste Day until the end of August, small paths wander through the property revealing their mysteries and delights, such as the presence of a well-protected kitchen garden.

A captivating and charming town, Bonaventure – Wagamet in the Mi’gmaq language – was founded in 1760 by families deported from Acadia during the Great Upheaval. People in Bonaventure identify as belonging to the Acadian community, and are proud to express their heritage.

Bonaventure has a well-developed tourist infrastructure. There are a number of restaurants and bistros with varied and quality cuisine, as well as several shops and boutiques. Its main street, Avenue de Grand-Pré, has the advantage of being slightly off the path of Route 132, thereby preserving its original charm.

Bonaventure’s beaches and its famous river are food for the soul, calling you to choose from among the many available outdoor activities: sailing, canoeing, kayaking, cycling, river rafting, swimming and fishing for striped-bass, salmon and mackerel. The sunsets over the Baie des Chaleurs with the Chic-Chocs as a backdrop are magnificent.

Come see us. Bonaventure is the heart of the Acadian identity of Quebec and the Maison de l'Échouerie, a magical place, its best kept secret!
