Our Vacation Packages Making History in Rustico

Explore the historic Acadian roots of Rustico with this authentic experience that begins with a personalized tour of historic properties: Farmers' Bank of Rustico, St. Augustine's Church, and the Doucet House.

Join us for an immersive, traditional, and experiential Acadian meal on the grounds and gardens of the 1772 Doucet House, the sturdy log home that Jean Doucet built in 1772 for his wife, Marguerite, and their large family of nine children. Using recipes passed down through the generations featuring traditional ingredients, vegetables, and herbs from heritage gardens, the meal consists of an appetizer, traditional Acadian chicken fricot (soup) with bannock, Rustico meat pie with rapure, vegetables, and homemade bread, pickles and molasses, and a seasonal dessert served with ice cream. You'll even make your own butter and homemade ice cream while the bannock is baking in the outdoor bread oven.

*Dietary and allergy restrictions should be indicated at the time of reservations; we will try our best to accommodate your needs. Keep in mind, our recipes are based upon traditional Acadian recipes.

Dinner hours are 5:30-8pm, Wednesday-Saturday, from June-September 2024. Meals are served "family style".

A souvenir recipe booklet in French or English and featuring traditional recipes can be purchased onsite as a keepsake of your time at this historic site.

Wine, hard cider, and local beer are available for purchase.
