About Christine Joli-Coeur
Both Randy and I are relatively newbies to the area having lived her just under 20 years.
Christine Joli-Coeur purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2005
Why Christine Joli-Coeur chose Prescott
When we first purchased we had been living in a smaller cottage in the area for a number of years. Initially we thought to rent it for a few years and move in when the kids were older. The advent of our third child made us rethink and we built a home a bit south and west of this historic home. Why this home? When I first walked in the home I had an ovewhelming sense of history. A glimpse of the past. This home is one of the pioneer homes of the area. It is truly one of the most historic homes in the area and we feel honoured to be able to share it with others.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Really nice place for large families or a couple of families. Lots of space to eat either at the kitchen table or the formal dining room table (both fit more than 10). So you don't need to pack up the chess or monopoly game at meal time. Lots of place to get away from the action like the second story closed in porch with a beautiful view of the river, sit on the large window sills in the bedrooms to read a book or outside on the large interlock patio overlooking the St. Lawrence river and Island.

Perfect Thanksgiving Weekend
A group of 8 adults and 2 kids stayed for the long weekend. Place met our needs perfectly. Christine was a gracious and helpful host, and the pictures don't do the cottage enough justice -- it's even bigger and cozier than it looks.
Bedrooms upstairs were all spacious and comfortable. Downstairs bedroom is maybe a little tight and probably best suited for older kids, but living room and dining room are huge, and kitchen is well-stocked for all your cooking and dining needs.
Outdoor space with hot tub and fireplace was fantastic, and the grounds with view of the Saint Laurent and autumn-coloured trees was picturesque. Plan to do it again next year. Cheers.
A beautiful long weekend
We were a group of 14 people. We loved our stay. It is a rustic home with scenic views. The grounds are expansive and the walk to the river is beautiful. We enjoyed sitting at the back patio and having a fire. It was a peaceful setting with pastoral views. The younger people in our group had fun going into the river.
We are a group of 12 women (sometimes more) who come together yearly for a reunion and refreshing of the soul. Christine, the owner, was great to deal with, responding quickly to email and ensuring everything was in place. The property is beautiful, immaculate and as pictured, with a breathtaking view of the water. There was a daily walk down to check on the 3 families of geese enjoying the exceptional weather. Christine also introduced a wonderful option of having a "spa" day with Stephanie Forgues and the women from New Leaf Wellness in Brockville. It was a great addition to the weekend. We will be back.
Lovely home, great value!
Our family of 16 stayed in the house for a weekend over Christmas and had a wonderful time. The beds were very comfortable (including extra mattresses which were provided), and the living room is a good size for a large group. Christine is a gracious, easy going host who is very open to helping out however she can. Her home is on the property, which is handy if you should need anything. She supplied us with extra wine glasses, and offered to let us use her oven, which did not end up being necessary. We were having some issues with the oven heating to the right temperature, which hopefully will be fixed. We were very impressed with how the home had been decorated for Christmas, with beautiful lights on the property, and even a real Christmas tree in the house! I would definitely recommend this highly for large family and friend get togethers.
Beautiful historic home. Lots of room and owners attentive to details
We had a great time with our family. The kitchen had lots of plates, glasses and utensils to accommodate our group. The large kitchen table was fantastic to gather everyone around and was the focal point of our family interactions. We will definitely be back with friends or family. Thanks again for sharing your rental home with us.
Excellente pour les réunions de famille.
Très belle maison, conviviale, chaleureuse, très propre et super bien équipée.
Merci Christine pour le bon accueil.
