The inn was set up by Marie and Francois called "le Père" Bise in 1903. It initially was a cottage on the lake front where one could enjoy a simple meal, that Marie would lovingly concoct. Success quickly followed and in 1928 their son Marius implemented the first extension works. The cottage then become a beautiful hotel that welcomed celebrities of the era. His wife, Marguerite, was an amazing chef and created masterpieces that made her part of the French gourmet heritage. In 1951, the Michelin guide awarded her a third star. Their son François, and his wife Charlyne, took over, with the same emphasis on excellence. Their daughter Sophie was next in line. The Bise family had always wanted to offer the highest possible quality to their guests, with an outstanding setting and an elegant ambiance. In 2007, the hotel was extensively renovated to bring in modern comforts into the rooms and suites.
In 2017, Magali and Jean Sulpice start a new chapter to carry the beautiful story forward. They put in a lot of renovation efforts to bring even more comfort to the beautiful abode. They wish to preserve the true essence of a family abode where it is possible to experience extraordinary instants like plain emotion, with a sense of hospitality, sharing and the generosity that makes up the soul of this inn.
“MAGALI AND I WISH THE INN STAYS AS IT IS, A WARM AND WELCOMING FAMILY ABODE.”
