What a perfect stay at a perfect location!! The house is so comfortable and has everything you need. I have stayed at many places around the world, and I can honestly say, this is one of the most comfortable, best equipped, fun for the whole family place I have stayed. Everything from a fire pit(with plenty of wood), zip line, BBQ, Wii, play ground, tons of towels, fully equipped kitchen with plenty of silverware, knives, pots, pans, utensils, satellite TV's (4 of them) just a perfect place for a GREAT vacation!! I can't enough good things about this place! Very clean and neat. There is even 2 first aide kits for any minor injuries!! I will return again, just to enjoy the peace and quiet and to relax! Close to grocery stores, a little ways out from Quebec City, but the drive is nice and we didn't want the hustle and bustle of the city, so we enjoyed the tranquil setting!! The beds are very comfortable, as is the furniture throughout the house!! The pictures on line do not do the property justice!! This property is nicer than the pictures show!! We had 6 adults and 3 small children ages 5 - 9 and lots of room for everyone. The owner gave great instructions to open the house and there was no problems at all. I would highly recommend this to friends and family a like!! If you want pure fun in a big house in the woods and be close to nature and not too far from the big city life, than this place is for you. Go visit the Quebec city any and see the whales up north during the day and relax by a nice fire in the fire pit at night!! What a perfect vacation at a perfect place!! Thank you for letting us enjoy your property!!
First I will say the house was beautiful exactly as promised very clean. Well organized furniture was super comfortable! everything was what we wanted, everything out there was super clean. It is located just beside the lake where kids and adults can enjoy kayaking, canoeing, fishing and swimming or simply walk around the lake. In addition to all of this, it was very easy to reserve, pay and communicate with the owners. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to relax close to the city but at the same time in the outdoors. Having internet and a phone was great since cell service was up and down. Overall it was the perfect house, perfect vacation thank you so much!!!!
We made last minute plans to take our vacation in St Raymond and needed a place with access to the snowmobile trails. We didn't need a place as big as this but our choices were limited at the time. We'd rate it five stars if we weren't using it for our snowmobiling vacation. The house location and the driveway are not the most ideal but is definitely doable, and we'd consider going there again on a future visit. The driveway is steeper than you can really tell from the pictures, so we couldn't leave the trailer, a 2-place 6ft enclosed, unhooked from the truck unless it was left at the street. It just wanted to slide downhill. We used the trailer like a garage each night for the sleds so we wanted to be able to drive them in and out. So it had to stay connected to the truck, which was fine unless we wanted to go somewhere by truck rather than by snowmobile.
The access trail is only about a mile down an association road, which had enough snow for lubrication, but only barely enough on the one day it warmed up and melted the snow on the roads. We saw other snowmobiles accessing the lake a few houses down through a seasonal property and used that most the week to get to the trail. It was actually marked on the lake which helped when returning at night in the dark. There was also a marked trail going down the lake to the access trail. GPS says it was 5.6 miles (9 km) to the main trail system from the house.
The house itself is exactly as described; we really couldn't ask for any better. The only thing not in the pictures is a small garage at the top of the driveway. But that really didn't matter. Everything we needed was there. So all we had to bring was food. Having internet and a phone was great since cell service was up and down with the weather. Most cell service we had was two bars.
Also wonderful was the graciousness and helpfulness of the owner's father who "rescued" us after we returned very late from a ride, after 9:30PM, to find that the parking lights were left on the truck all day and killed both batteries. We were planning to be up and out early the next morning which was our last day, and we had extended our week by that one day to try and get one more ride in. So if not for the late night arrival of a battery charger to help us out, our vacation would have been cut short and the extra day would have been wasted. We're so thankful for the help.
Overall, it was a great stay and we'd definitely recommend it to others.
It was such a beautiful home and beautiful scenery! The owner was very helpful with all of our questions. The house was neat and tidy, very well maintained! I would definitely recommend this place to everyone! It was a lovely experience!!
Clean, perfect for kids, equipped with everything you need except food! The owners thought of everything to make our stay stress-free.
Take note that you don't have lake access from the house! We drove about 7 minutes to a camp with lake access which you have to pay for but that cost comes with full access to canoes, kayaks, and paddle boards. Totally worth the $.
This property is on the road that is bordering the seven islands lake in St-Raymond, Quebec. This area is very quiet with a huge nature preserve all around the property ( Reserve Duchesnay) that is great all year around. The city of St-Raymond nearby is a logging town that has a slow pace and friendly people with some great restaurants. The motto of the city is 'living in nature'. There are excursions for hunting, fishing, ATV and Snowmobile rentals nearby as well. During the summer, it is possible to have access to a superb beach with canoe and paddle boat rentals on the same lake as the property. The property itself has lake access via the nearby marina and it is possible to bring your own non-motorized boat and use the ramp at that location for free.
