Fodor's Review

Merchant Pierre du Calvet—a notorious republican and Freemason—entertained Benjamin Franklin behind the stone walls of this elegant 18th-century home, but today it's a B&B, decorated with Louis XIII and Lous XIV furnishings, Oriental rugs, gilded portraits, bird cages, and dazzling woodwork. (Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner was so impressed, he named a main character, Megan Calvet, after the place.) The flat-screen televisions are kept small to maintain the

rooms' unplugged tranquillity and Old World opulence. The Filles du Roy restaurant specializes in organic products and local Quebecois cuisine, such as roasted duck, rack of lamb, and smoked veal. The glassed-in garden, filled with flowers and potted plants, is a great place to nibble croissants and fruit salad each morning.
