Each room comes with a daily four-course gourmet brunch that's included with the price (rates start at $200 per night). Resident chef Yves prepares each dish on-site using local ingredients. The menu is inspired by Michelin-star restaurants and changes seasonally, with highlights such as the "Lemuel Benedict" of Waldorf Astoria fame and "The VIP" Florentine egg from Le Jules Verne in Paris.
In addition to hearty meals, guests at La Maison de l'île d'Orléans have plenty to keep them occupied during a stay. The island is known for its natural beauty, which guests can explore by hiking, biking or taking a scenic drive.
