Rustic elegance that wraps it's arms around you!

Rustic elegance that wraps it's arms around you!

I have been very negligent about writing my review and i have come to the conclusion of why that is,this place is simply just so special to me after experiencing it that I wanted to keep it all to myself. But that is not being fair to our wonderfully accommodating hostess Dawne

From the moment I found this magical flat to when we finally forced ourselves to leave I was thoroughly impressed. I have traveled extensively and have utilized cyberrentals many times. I have always had good experiences but nothing better than this one!

I fell upon this beauty very late one night trying to plan a semi last minute romantic trip for us for Valentine's weekend and shot out an email. Never and I mean never have I received such a lightning fast and personal response from an owner. The very next morning I am getting a call from France and the lovely Dawne is on the other line. We had a wonderful conversation. Transaction was a breeze. We talked a few more times about directions things to do and were off.

Dawne's directions were great, we found parking and we couldn't have been more pleased when we opened the door. It is better than the pictures. You feel like you are stepping back in time with the thick stone walls,recessed windows and the ceiling beams. I felt my jaw drop and just knew we were gonna have a fabulously romantic time even if we never left the flat. We were greated by a welcome message from Dawne on the machine again evidence of her attention to detail not just in her exquisite taste in decorating but also to her committent to her guests needs.

It was freezing outside and to have such a wonderful mix of history with all the modern anemities anyone could ask for to come home to was heart warming. We loved the fireplace and the chess game was well utilized. The kitchen was so open and well appointed. there was even a woodstove in the kitchen if you needed to be extra cozy. It was wonderful and envigorating waking up to the sunlight that filtered in through all the wondows that literally surround three sides of the flat.

We had originally booked for thurs fri and sat night but I woke up in the cozy gorgeous bedroom sunday morning and just didn't want to leave. I emailed Dawne on a wish and a prayer and she got back to me in like 1/2 hr and said yes. Then Scott woke up Monday and he didn't want to leave again Dawne was prompt to respond and we stayed.

Wish we never had to go, Can't wait to return! <3 Nancy and Scott

Stay in a Flat that you would love to own!!

  • 5 of 5
Quite often when you see pictures of a property they do not an accurate representation. However, thihs property is even more beautiful in person. When you enter for the first time you just say WOW! Beautifully decorated, spotless, unbelieveably equipted, great blend of old world and modern and the best location in Montreal. close to everything and absolutely no need for a car. How cool was it to be able to wave to the owner of one of our favorite restaurants from our window. My wife and I are avid travelers and we have stayed is some very special places. Dawn's flat is definitly a very special place. I cannot even think of one negative comment I could possibly make.
On top of all that, the owner is a complete joy! Helpful is a gross understatement. She is a friend from first contact and her follow up is first class.
Finally, two words, no dissapointments!!!

LOVELY OLD MONTREAL LOFT

  • 5 of 5
4-day romantic get away in old Port. Extremely cold outside- but it was completely irrelevant to us as the Loft was so warm, inviting, historic, comfortable and cozy we never wanted to leave. When we did force ourselves outside, we stumbled on one delicious eatery after another. When we took the metro to downtown, we found a host of interesting places - we enjoy microbrews and stumbled on three within blocks of Sherbrooke. We always eagerly returned back to the Loft to spend a few hours before going back out as it was just that nice there. Had a wood fire one night and fell asleep watching movies. If you have children and manage to get away, you know what a luxury that is. The kitchen had more than we needed (a complete kitchen for any meal). The bedroom was sunny, comfortable and inviting. The bathroom was beautiful and interesting with old field stone. Beams, wood floors throughout. Field stone. Windows. Enchanting. Really, highly recommended. And I consider myself very picky.

Owner's Response: Thanks soooo much! You seem to love it as much as we do! Funny, found out after purchasing the flat that the original Mr. Berthelet has the same birthday as I do! April 15! Of course, many diiferent years before my time, but quite a coincidence. Kind regards and we hope to see you back soon. Dawne

A Beautiful Designer Apartment

  • 5 of 5
The location of the apartment speaks for itself just one block down from Olive et Gourmando in the heart of the old city so instead I will focus on the apartment itself.
Starting with the thoughtful layout and design the apartment boast no fewer than 12 windows which creates a sense of light and openness hard to find in historic properties. Three fireplaces and old wood beams work perfectly with the old stone walls to create a romantic and comfortable atmosphere.
Just a few minutes walk to the Place-d'Armees metro station and you are on your way to any part of the city.
The kitchen is especially nice and after a trip to Jean-Talon or Atwater market you can cook to your hearts content. I've stayed in many apartments around the world and this one really stands out!
Oh, by the way the SAQ at Atwater has a better selection of French wines than most wine shops in Paris and that's no small feat!
The owner was very attentive and we had no reason to contact her once we arrived since everything worked perfectly. The condition was impeccable and the lighting with many dimmers, which I really enjoy just adds to the overall charm.
I'll be back!

Comfortable apartment with lots of character

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this lovely apartment. It was as pictured on the website and we were not disappointed. The sofa is unbelievably comfortable and the bed was very comfortable too. Very well equipped except no soap in the bathroom. The apartment is in a great location with restaurants just a few steps away. Only negative is if the apartment upstairs is occupied, there is some noise. But, we would highly recommend for a place to stay in Montreal.
Thanks Dawne.

Great Get-A-Way for a Husband and Wife

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year in a row my wife and I have spent three nights at Dawne's apartment. It has been the perfect time for us to recharge our relationship as we leave our children at home with my mother and father-in-law. The apartment is exquisite; it is every bit as beautiful as the pictures show...and more. More because the pictures can't show the sense of warmth and peace looking out the windows at the narrow streets of Old Montreal, listening to great music, and enjoying a glass of wine and each other's company! The lighting of the apartment -almost all indirect- adds to the romantic and cozy feeling. It's location is also ideal. Everything in Old Montreal is within walking distance of the apartment...and there is so much to see. There are wonderful and interesting museums about the fascinating history of Old Montreal. Did you know that the American British Colonies under Major Montgomery captured Montreal and that Benjamin Franklin traveled there in 1776 to convince the Canadians to join the Colonies in revolting against Great Britain? From the museums to the breathtaking Basilica of Notre Dame -you have to take the one hour tour-to the restaurants to the shops (most reasonably priced according to my wife who is the expert in that department) we had fun and busy days and always enjoyed relaxing in the apartment before heading out to dinner. Like many of others who have stayed here, we were so sad to leave but we knew we had made some great memories that will make us smile at each other even when we are back in the routine and hustle of our everyday lives. I would totally recommend Dawne's apartment for any couple looking for a fun and romantic weekend (or longer if you can do it)!

Car: not necessary

Located in the heart of Old Montreal,our loft-style apartment is located on a greenbelt park in a 1806 listed historic building just a few steps from the acclaimed Pointe-A-Calliere Museum of Archeology and History.

We are a 5 minute walk from either Place Victoria or Place des Arts metro stations. All of the amazing Underground City of Montreal can be accessed from either of these. Great in the winter months to escape the chilly weather or during the warmer months to get out of the heat.

One of Montreals popular BIXI bike rental locations is just a short block from the door. All amenities including either IGA or Metro supermarkets, drug stores(Jean Coutou or PharmaPrix), banks, coffee shops, and numerous great restaurants are within a few minutes of the door.
