Château des Tourelles
If you want to put a little space between you and the crush of tourists in Old Québec, Château des Tourelles is just a short walk from the old city in the historic Faubourg-Saint-Jean-Baptiste neighborhood, famous for its artisans, delis, bakeries, and eclectic boutiques. This once-abandoned neo-Gothic building, constructed in 1898 for a tinsmith business, was carefully restored to become a bed-and-breakfast inn in 2002 by new owners who earned a Québec City Architectural Merit award for their efforts. All of the accommodations—rooms, suites, and studios—are uniquely decorated, featuring hardwood floors, goose-down comforters, triple-paned windows, and private baths, and some suites have a Jacuzzi and a private terrace. Guests swear by the homemade “American” (read hearty) breakfast, and the rooftop terrace—with its views over the city to the St. Lawrence and mountains—is a favorite spot for guests to relax in warm weather.
