Comfortable rooms and warm hospitality in Bouctouche.
Those who are familiar with the writings of Bouctouche's own Antonine Maillet will certainly want to visit "Le pays de la Sagouine" to see her characters come alive and have a look into Acadian life in the past. Across the street from the Auberge you will find the county museum, complete with chapel and historic implements. Saturday mornings through the summer months the town centre is abuzz with the Farmers' Market. At the Irving Eco-centre, there is the boardwalk (2 kms long), an interpretation centre, an observation tower to have a better look at P.E.I., and of course, the sandy beach and the warm Northumberland Straight water! There are antique shops, artists' galleries, artist-for-a-day workshops to be arranged, and pottery shops. You can make your own beach glass jewelery. The well-known Olivier Soapery (soap factory), complete with a tour and a free humorous presentation, is just down the road. Kouchibouguac National Park is a short drive away -- they rent bicycles or cross country skis in the winter. In the same area you can arrange an excursion to observe the bears in their own environment.
