Maisonnette (2011 population: 573) is a Canadian village in Gloucester County, New Brunswick.

The fishing village is located on the north shore of Caraquet Harbour near Pointe de Maisonnette, opposite the town of Caraquet on the Acadian Peninsula.

History[edit]

The village was first settled in 1832 as a temporary fishing port for people from Caraquet and Bertrand. Their small cabins (maisonnettes in French) was the inspiration for the name of the village.
