Our history

Here’s a little history about our family business, this magnificent ancestral house, and the families who have called it home over the years.

This imposing American Foursquare-style house was built in 1923 by Joseph Gosselin Sr., a respected local builder who also served as an alderman for the City of Lévis for about ten years. In 1881, he settled on Saint-Georges Street with his wife, Odile Aubin, with whom he had 11 children. A loyal friend and collaborator of Commandeur Alphonse Desjardins, he was one of the founding members of the Caisse populaire de Lévis in 1900.

The head of a successful company and assisted by his eldest son, Joseph Junior, Boss Gosselin, as he was known, oversaw dozens of major infrastructure projects during his career, including churches, convents, hospitals, cathedrals, warehouses, railway stations, banks, libraries, bridges, and stately homes.

Joseph Gosselin Sr. (1847-1924) – The house with its original red brick – Odile Aubin (1849-1932)

On September 18, 1922, the house, store, offices, and lumber yard of the Compagnie Jos. Gosselin Ltée were destroyed in a tragic fire. In 1923, shortly before his death in January 1924, Joseph Gosselin Sr. was able to build himself a new house on the site of the old building on Saint -Georges Street. It is this second Gosselin family home that today houses Le Plumard Couette et Café.

From the 1960s to the 1980s, the house was home to the Bélanger family. Its patriarch, Raynold, was a well-known local lawyer who practiced out of offices on the ground floor. The property changed hands twice in the 1990s.

Although its exterior appearance has changed over time, the house has retained a distinctive cachet inside, with its grand staircases, woodwork, stained glass, decorative mouldings, and original windows and floors. It is a true gem of Old Lévis’ built heritage.

In the early 2000s, Anne Fleury and André Carrier became the new owners. They converted the house and transformed it into a B&B and tourist residence. It was under their watch that the establishment earned its stellar reputation.

André Carrier and Anne Fleury pass on the Le Plumard torch in 2021

In November 2021, Tony Lavoie and Marie-Josée Dumas took a big step towards their dream of running a B&B and purchased the property—in the middle of the pandemic! It was a courageous but exhilarating move for the little family, who were about to embark on an incredible entrepreneurial adventure.

For Marie-Josée, it was a return to her native region and a nod to her late grandfather, who was an innkeeper for many years in the small municipality of Sainte-Claire, near Lévis. For Tony, originally from Maniwaki in the Outaouais region, becoming a hotelier was the natural extension of his past experience in tourism development, hospitality, and management.

The owners are supported in this exciting adventure by their three sons and Marie-Josée’s mother, Patricia, who all contribute to ensuring guests of Le Plumard enjoy an unforgettable experience worthy of the finest hotels.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

The Dumas-Lavoie family

GOURMET FOOD + TOP KNOTCH SERVICE!! 10/10 Le Plumard Couette & Café is a beautiful hidden gem in Levis and I’m so glad to have discovered it this weekend! Old world charm coupled with exquisite service + food make this bed & breakfast a step above the rest. Thank you (un gros merci!) Marie-Jo & Tony for being such gracious hosts. It was your attention to detail that made our weekend getaway extra special.GOURMET FOOD EXPERIENCE: there are just no words to describe how excellent our breakfasts were here! The in-house specialty is a MUST: a poached, breaded then fried egg is served on top of a vol-au-vent pastry which is stuffed with a medley of fried leeks, mushrooms, smoked ham, cheese and served with a velvety hollandaise sauce (chefs kiss). We also really enjoyed the warm homemade maple muffins, fresh berry crumble parfaits, my morning latte was served in a big bowl European style (still dreaming of this!) and for dessert: flambéed crepes Suzettes with Grand Marnier and orange slices!! Wow. Wow. Wow. LOCATION: Le Plumard is conveniently located on a quiet street, a short walk from the ferry which drops you off in the heart of old Quebec. It was really nice not having to worry about taxis/Ubers during our stay. Ferry passes once an hour until 2am and gives you the prettiest view of the Quebec skyline. $4 per ticket. ROOMS: very cozy! Well appointed, everything was very clean, comfortable mattress + pillows with nice linens. We loved our big on-suite bathroom (we stayed in the biggest room). I can’t say enough good about this adorable B&B. A great way to experience the culture and beauty of the Quebec/Lévis region and people.Can’t wait to stay here again!

Grand old home with exceptional hospitality We loved everything about Le Plumard. One of the best B&B I know. Lovely hosts, beautiful and comfortable rooms, delicious breakfasts and attention to details that make all the difference. Within walking distance to good restaurants and to the ferry from Levis to Quebec city.

Que dire…..que de bons mots…..si vous recherchez un endroit paisible chaleureux pleins de belles attention personnalisées vous y êtes…Mais il y a plus encore ..Il y a longtemps que n'ai pas reçu un accueil digne des années où l'hôte est le centre de toutes attentions personnalisées et l'endroit tenu de mains de maître!! Déjeuner de rois et reines avec des attentions à rendre jaloux tous ceux qui attendent qu'une chambre se libère! Oui 4 chambres merveilleuses pour y dormir en toute sécurité et harmonie des années de nos ancêtres! Bons séjours a tous!

Nous avons séjourné ici deux jours et c'était vraiment parfait. La chambre était très belle et spacieuse. Dans la salle de bain nous avions pleins de produits et même 2 peignoirs. La clim aussi dans la chambre est très appreciable. Nos hôtes nous ont accueilli chaleureusement. Mention spéciale pour le petit déjeuner qui est juste incroyable ! Une adresse à ne pas louper.

Nous venons de passer un très beau séjour (2 nuitées). Propriétaires souriants et chaleureux. Très grande chambre, très propre. Que dire des délicieux déjeuners très bien présentés et différents à chaque jour. Merci ! Merci ! de Ginette et Wilfred

Magnifique week-end en amoureux dans le loft au dernier étage avec superbe vue sur le vieux Québec. Accueil chaleureux, hôte à l'écoute de nos besoins et petit déjeuner délicieux et copieux.

Le Plumard Couette et Café est unique en soi! L'accueil de Tony et Marie-Josée, le cachet des chambres, le déjeuner servi par Thomas et l'historique du bâtiment et surtout celle de son acquisition par la famille Lavoie/Dumas rendent l'expérience du Plumard incroyable. Très invitant, on ne cherche que les occasions pour pouvoir y retourner!
