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

What a wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We, all the five sisters want to thank you for the wonderful environment you provided us with for our stay in Sainte Brigitte de Laval, Qc.

The location was exquisite, calm and quiet.

Everything we possibly needed was accessible to us.

Your beautiful house gave us privacy, yet a v very good sense of security at the same time.

Once again thank you so much. We look forward to see it again in the summer !!!

Magical River House!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful week at the beautiful river house and cannot say enough about it’s charm and tranquil surroundings. Simply put, the home is both lovely and homey, and exceeded our expectations in every way. The amenities were outstanding—stylish and comfortable furniture, a generous supply of linens and towels, a great bed, good WiFi, a big TV and one of the most we’ll-equipped kitchens we have ever experienced in a vacation rental. The owners have thoughtfully provided just about everything a guest would need. We also loved that the location of the home was in such close proximity to Quebec City (about twenty minutes by car). Truly the best of both worlds! Thank you Josee and Gyna! We will be back!

Picturesque house with river view

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house in a beautiful setting. Very idyllic and peaceful. The house Itself is well maintained with everything one could need for a stay. It is very much home from home. We met Gyna who was most welcoming, nothing was too much trouble.

We were a family of four staying at the property and there was just enough room for us. The layout up stairs is unusual as the wall adjoining the two bedrooms does not go all the way to the ceiling and this may give some people concerns regarding privacy.

Quebec City is approximately 25 mins away and there is plenty to see and do with many excellent restaurants. Montmorency Falls, Sainte Anne's Canyon and Basilica, Ile d''Orleans, Jacques Cartier National Park, Charlevoix are all within driving distance to the property. There are also several shopping malls quite close...we visited Laurier in Quebec.

We found the Québécois very friendly and helpful and we did not have any issues with language barriers as people were happy to suffer our mediocre French and kindly replied in English !

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Owner's Response: Dear Ian and family, Thank you for staying in our house. Your sons have been very courageous for swimming in the river ever if the weather was cold!!! We were happy you enjoyed the area and the setting. Take care and we wish you the best to all of you. Gyna and Josée.

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.
