This fall, get a front-row seat to admire the fall rhapsody on site or in the beautiful surrounding countryside.
My guests often say to me, "It must be beautiful here in the fall!". Indeed, the landscape is magnificent and the view of the river is even more striking. The property features maple trees that turn bright red to form a large flaming ball as well as fruit trees bursting with fruit (pears, plums, apples). The fresh air is conducive to outdoor wood fires. Relax by the fireplace and admire the starry sky while breathing in the fresh and healthy air of nature. This is the time where we start to light up a good fire in the indoor fireplace.
But it's not just at Auberge Tom B&B where autumn improves the landscape. The entire region is known for its magical setting, which quietly transforms itself in mid-September to reach its peak around Thanksgiving and even beyond, depending on the year. he country roads criss-crossing the Collines-de-l'Outaouais region (Chelsea, Wakefield/La Pêche, Cantley, Val-des-Monts) are pleasant to drive along and their landscapes are quite bucolic. This is the ideal time to discover the Chemins D'Eau tourist route.
Discover the fresh products of our gourmet artisans or the gourmet dishes concocted by our local chefs on one of the many terraces in Chelsea or Wakefield.

It is therefore very pleasant to walk or cycle along them.

All parking lots in Gatineau Park will be reopened from 1 pm on Sunday afternoons until sunset, with the exception of Champlain Lookout and P10.
