The Cornemuse B&B located at the convergence of Lake Memphremagog, after which the city was named, Magog is a city well known for its industry and craftsmanship. The mostly French speaking town’s economy was mostly dominated by the textile industry, most remarkably the cotton mill. It wasn’t until the mid 1960s and 70s that the economy expanded through tourism and the growth of their industrial park.

Once we began to drive through the town, I was delighted by the sense of character and distinct vibe of Magog. Each home that lined the street had its own set of intricate details; pots of flowers, hammocks and swings and thousand-year-old maple trees added such a picturesque element to this colourful city.

I felt a sense of wonder and contentment at that moment and was excited to explore the remarkable landscape and the Cornemuse Bed & Breakfast we booked for the night. The B&B is located in a historic house that is over 110 years old and originally home to the Scottish family of North Hatley. One of the most special treats about this bed and breakfast is the true sense of Scottish charm that permeates the entire space. Located on the golf club, just a few steps from the beautiful Lake Massawippi, the B&B is the perfect spot to just check out and unwind.

The Cornemuse B&B really served as the perfect backdrop for our weekend. With a Victorian theme, the bed and breakfast was filled with treasures like a 1920s hat collection, a nook for reading with a collection of books and an antique chess board. Just 15km from Magog, Orford, Sherbrooke and Vermont, the location is the ideal mix between isolated and connected to city life.

Every day  we woke up to a delightful breakfast prepared by the family. Eating in the dining hall, which is wallpapered in delicate leaves of green and gold and filled with treasures that have sentimental and historic value, I really felt transported to another, more tranquil time. The hallways of the home are lined with gorgeous solid wood flooring, lit with antique pendant lighting and decorated with traditional wallpaper.

The B&B has been written about in several local and international media outlets, including Elle Magazine, The Gazette and La Tribune. It’s not often a bed and breakfast experience can truly make you feel relaxed and on vacation while still comfortable and at home, and I would definitely recommend the Cornemuse for a weekend getaway with a loved one or family!
