Hi There. VivBounty here to share with you the lovely spot we found near the border between Quebec and New Brunswick in Canada. The Auberge Les Jardins Inn is nestled on a picturesque shared woodland of seven acres in Saint-Jacques New Brunswick just outside of Edmunston near the botanical gardens, hence its name.
We Found The Lovely Auberge Les Jardins Inn
The Auberge Les Jardins Inn is nestled on a picturesque shared woodland of seven acres in Saint-Jacques New Brunswick just outside of Edmunston near the botanical gardens, hence its name.
We have travelled this road between our little village to Ontario quite a bit since returning to Canada from Spain almost 4 years ago. The first two trips were happy occasions but sadly the last was a very sad one. It is difficult making a journey of a thousand miles for a funeral, but infinitely more so when you drive, giving you that much more time in anticipation and sad reflection than a quick flight.
On our first outbound journey we made two overnight stops, eating fast food during our rest stops but dined in family restaurants in the evenings. To our good fortune, on the return of this first trip, the usual hotels were full so the concierge kindly directed us to the beautiful little town of Saint-Jacques, New Brunswick a little off the beaten track, to the Auberge Les Jardins Inn.
Thankfully we discovered Auberge Les Jardins Inn on the return of our first happy journey back to Ontario to visit the family after settling back in Canada. Driving a journey that long and this being my husband’s first time in Canada, we decided to take our time and see the sights. He’s a terrible passenger so it’s best to let him drive and I navigate (we prefer good old fashioned atlases to the modern GPS).
As with the trip down to Gibraltar to get married, we glanced at the map, followed the general direction we wanted to go and drove only in the daylight. Once dusk was imminent, we began looking for hotel signs and stopping in to the ones we fancied to see if they accept pets as Pedro is always with us.
Pedro and I even walked the trail into town and met other dog walkers, cyclists and pedestrians, who in true Maritime tradition were warm, friendly and chatty always giving him compliments and a friendly scratch around his collar. When my mum called us to check in, we sounded so happy, she asked us if we were enjoy our second honeymoon. I had to agree it felt a bit like that after all the sadness of the trip, a little interlude amidst the botanical gardens, walking trail, beautiful warm hospitality of the wonderful Ms. Landry and Mr. Martin and their staff at the Auberge Les Jardins Inn was soothing to our souls.
Until next time, enjoy your travels!
Hello There, VivBounty here with the loveliest Auberge Inn for a getaway. It is situated in the beautiful province of New Brunswick just outside Edmunston near the botanical gardens in Saint-Jacques.
My cousin was recently supporting me through a terrible loss of a loved one and reminded me to take time to have a nice celebration of my birthday which had been 2 days after the funeral. He asked that I tell him of my plans and he would send up a special prayer for me on that day and time so that my celebration would be blessed.
I immediately shared with him the place my husband and I go for lovely quiet getaways with our constant companion, Pedro the dog. He asked me to send pictures as my description made it a place he would like to visit. I went one further step than that and wrote a hub page about the wonderfully charming Auberge Les Jardins Inn.
