We are currently looking for a rental partner

Located on vibrant Saint Jean-Baptiste Street in the heart of lovely downtown Baie Saint-Paul, La Maison Otis is an ancestral home that was built in 1836 and transformed into an inn in the 1970s. Since its opening, it has been considered one of the best establishments in Charlevoix, for both its first-rate accommodations and its high-quality restaurant.

The project will include 25 premium lodging units (20 rooms and 5 suites). Commercial space will also be available for long-term rental for restauration, a performance hall, a bar lounge, etc. La Maison Otis is scheduled to reopen on September 1, 2018.

The Gala Charlevoix reconnaît 2018 took place on January 17 at Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu. Organized every year by the Chambre de commerce de Charlevoix, the gala honours the success of businesses in the area.

Maryse Huot and members of Maison Otis took part in this year’s edition. Ms. Huot was there on behalf of Maison Otis when she awarded the prix L’Accueillant to Mousse Café, coopérative de solidarité.

This year, the Chambre de commerce de Charlevoix awarded the prix Grand Bâtisseur 2018 to Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau to thank him for choosing Charlevoix for the next G7 summit.

A night of success

Prime Minister Trudeau’s presence obviously contributed to the event’s popularity. But according to organizers, the gala’s success this year was also due to a record number of participants, with 73 candidacies from 54 companies.

A first project financed with the profits from last October’s garage sale

As previously announced, profits from last October’s garage sale at Maison Otis will be donated to local organizations.

Organizations interested had until December 1 to submit their projects.

Finalists include Atelier Cire-Constance in Baie-Saint-Paul, which has been mandated with a $10,000 contract to restore the furniture in the Danais pavilion rooms. Half of the funds for the contract were raised at the garage sale and the other half comes from Maison Otis.

The remaining funds will be distributed after Maison Otis reopens in September.

As a reminder, managers distributed $2,500 in coupons that were redeemable at the garage sale to local community organizations.
