La Maison du Seminaire
Hang around on the verandah of our house, in the shadow of a beautiful linden tree. A peaceful haven in the center of our city, our house built in 1915 is located on a historical street, close to the Cathedral, a few steps from the Saguenay River, the restaurants and other activities.
Our five old style bedrooms are large and comfortable. Three of them have a private bathroom and two other ones have a direct access to a shared bathroom. We have four air conditioned bedrooms... and more to discover. Have a quiet rest accompanied by a substantial breakfast.
In 1912, a large part of our city went on fire; many houses and buildings were destroyed.After all was finished the City decided to rebuild what had been destroyed and develop land around the
surroundings of the main church that had been damaged by fire.
That is the way the Rue du Séminaire was developed and many bourgeois houses built on both sides of the street. This street used to be called at that time “Bourgeois Street”.
Now it is a Historic Street protected by Provincial laws and rules.
Our house was built in 1915 by an automobile dealer and was owned by the family until the ‘80’s. The house had to be large, the family counting as much as 10 children at the table and 2 maids to help. . When the house was sold, the new owners tranformed it slightly to welcome 14 elderly persons besides keeping their two teen agers with them.
Then in 1998 we discovered this house was for sale. We purchased it and using the same spaces as the previous owners we decided to use it as a Bed and Breakfast. Without knowing, we were starting a very happy adventure...
