Fodor's Review

Merchant Pierre du Calvet was everything that British-ruled Montréal didn't like—a notorious republican admirer of Voltaire, a pal of Benjamin Franklin, and a fierce supporter of the American Revolution. But he was also prosperous enough in 1725 to build a fine residence with thick stone walls and multipane casement windows. His home now houses a restaurant and Pierre du Calvet AD 1725—a small, opulent bed-and-breakfast where you can enjoy the same hospitality Franklin did in the mid-18th century. No tours are offered, but visitors are welcome to visit the foyer, library, solarium and garden–-and possibly a few rooms if the manager is available.
