Guestbook comments from the manager

We arrived to this beautiful home to find soft music, candles, and wine waiting. The gorgeous scene of winter wonderland was outside every window. Inside the impeccably clean home the fireplace, cozy blankets, and comfortable beds kept us so warm. Josee and her family have not forgotten a thing to make our stay memorable. We have stayed in many VRBO homes from East to West coast but this has to be our favorite. We were close to every activity from shopping in old Quebec, skiing, hiking, snowshoeing and cross country. Then we would return to this little Paradise at the end of the day. We had a beautiful kitchen with everything needed to prepare our meals. Plenty of towels and linens. It was perfect. Because the owners live near by they were always immediately available if needed, but we had no problems to need them for! We texted with them each day though as they were a wealth of knowledge on the area and ready to give us any advice on what to do and see. Thank you Josee and Gyna for helping us make the memory of a lifetime. Sweet-Boulay family,London ont

It was so nice to be close to Quebec City but in a beautiful quiet setting! The house had everything we needed and more. The view is spectacular. Josee and Gyna made sure we had everything we needed. Merci.😁?

Gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a most relaxing time in your cottage. This was perfect in each and every way. We hope you will have us back in the future to stay again. As I was telling Josee, this was by far the best cottage rental we’ve ever chosen. It felt like the cottage was built just for us upon our arrival. What a nice warm feeling to have. We hope to book in a warmer time of the year next time to take advantage of the yard and surrounding trails. Thanks again for the warm hospitality.

Very best regards,

David and Michelle

Excellent location and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this incredibly comfortable and beautiful home. It was a perfect place from which to explore the surrounding parks by snowshoe, and also a very easy and short drive to old Quebec. The owners were wonderfully hospitable and helpful regarding the house and its amenities. A fantastic experience!

Beautiful escape for relaxation and rejuvenation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were like looking for a place to simply be able to relax and “recharge our batteries”, as he says. This beautiful house on the river provided us this opportunity each day we were there.

We arrived after dark, after a very long drive, the house welcomed us with warmth and lovely music playing. Josee and Gyna have thought of everything for this beautiful abode. They were wonderful hosts who answered all of our questions quickly. One our first full day they stopped over to introduce themselves, they told us about some snowshoeing trails, and when they found out that my husband didn’t have snowshoes they dropped some off for him not long after that.

Josee and Gyna were warm and friendly and made us feel welcomed.

The kitchen was well stocked with all manner of things that you may need to use. It was nice to work in and not worry if there were enough pots or pans.

The living area provided us comfortable seating to enjoy the wonderful view of the river, the large windows and patio door allowed the natural light in and gave me a relaxing spot to do my morning exercises.

The bed was excellent and the view outside from the upstairs area was a welcome sight each morning.

It snowed often while we were there, but there was never any problems or concerns with the roads . They were plowed often throughout the day. The area that the house is in is quiet, with hardly any traffic. As well it is only about a twenty minute drive to Quebec City, where we enjoyed Carnaval. There are grocery stores very near by which was very convenient.

We enjoyed our vacation immensely and would love to return during another season as I am sure that this area is wonderful year round.

Thank you Josee and Gyna.

The house is conveniently located to all major arteries. Just a short driving distance to a grocery store, pharmacy and restaurants. Activities such as golf, fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, biking, excursions, shopping and walking trails are available.

If you happen to visit during the fall season, you will witness the sheer beauty of the spectacular changes in foliage. If you are here in the wintertime the nearest ski center is 15 minute away (downhill and cross skiing).

Quebec City boasts many activities for all tastes. A multitude of restaurants for those who like a gastronomic experience. For those who like outdoor activities, in the summer the possibilities are endless. In the area we have, whitewater rafting, waterparks, kayaking, canoeing, hiking, just to name a few. In the winter we have numerous downhill and cross-country ski centers, dog sledding, snowshoeing, etc. Quebec City also has numerous festivals in both winter and summertime.

The Indian Reserve Huron Wendat as well as the Montmorency Falls and Ile d’Orléans are located nearby and are worth a visit in any season.
