About Cherie Gregor

While every subsequent owner of La Maison Dumas has left their impression on the house, extensive renovations by the current owner has allowed her to open the guest apartment to the public in 1997 and resulted in the beautiful building seen today. The proprietor, Cherie Gregor-Wolter, remains committed to the on-going restoration of La Maison Dumas and the revitalization of Old Montreal.

Cherie Gregor purchased this apartment in 1995

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Cherie,

Elaine and I hope you're having as enjoyable a time as we've had visiting your wonderful city .. and staying in your amazingly cozy apartment.



We have had such a pleasant stay .... in large measure on account of the exceptionally special home we've been privileged to stay in during our Montreal week.



We most definitely plan to return to Montreal and most definitely would only do so if we could again be accommodated in La Maison Dumas.



Thanks again for inviting us to stay in your lovely, 'it's got everything', apartment.



Kindest regards.



Leo and Elaine

great apartment in old Montreal - addition

My previous review mentioned that the knives in the kitchen were not sharp enough. Cherie read my comment and immediately had the knives sharpened....what service! Thank you Cherie.

great apartment in old town Montreal

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is beautiful, spacious and even though it is the basement of an historic building, the street windows are high enough to provide enough light. The furnishings are tasteful and comfortable..the bed mattress is exquisite (almost as good as at the Queen Elizabeth - and they are THE best). The owner is helpful in providing local information (shopping, SAQ locations, Metro). Our only concerns were: We were looking forward to some quiet nights in front of the fire but the gas pilot was out/notworking and the owner never fixed this even after we mentioned it the first day. Also the radiant heater in the living room didn't work even after having it reset. Since my partner has issues with the cold, this made the room uncomfortable for her to sit in. Lastly, this may seem minor but, one of the reasons we rent through VRBO is to be able to prepare our own meals as we enjoy cooking and experiencing short-term living in different cities. Though the kitchen was fairly well equipped, the knives were completely dull. A resharpening would be in order. These issues probably wouldn't bother most people staying here and they only had an impact on certain aspects of our stay. Overall, the experience of staying in this apartment was positive.

Wow, Wow, Wow....

  • 5 of 5

I love this Apartment. The location is amazing... cobblestone streets and in the heart of Old Montreal. The Apartment is charming, and impeccably furnished and decorated. The owner was so kind and welcoming. And the Espresso Machine got a good workout! I guess the best review I can say is: I want to return ASAP.

Could not ask for better!

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasurable place to stay. It has all the comforts from home and then some. It has been professionally decorated and is quite impressive. It is within walking distance of many great restaurants in the old section and only three to four blocks from the subway. Did not use our car at all during our stay. It is in a quiet section so you will enjoy a good night's sleep. The bedding and towels are of great quality and very comfortable. Cherie is very welcoming and will answer any questions that you have. We will certainly recommend this place to any of our friends visiting Montreal.

Beautiful Vacation Home in Lovely Area

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a romantic vacation rental, this is it! I highly recommend staying here as it is decorated beautifully and is very comfortable. This area of Montreal is very historic, with wonderful restaurants. The location is close to many points of interest and short walk to subway. The owners were very accommodating and welcomed us upon arrival. You will not be disappointed!

Beautiful Apartment in Old Montreal

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this lovely apartment. Everything is excellent quality and the owners have anticipated most of your needs with the furnishing and amenities. Cherie was helpful in finding a small grocery store, wine store, metro stops and places of interest. We highly recommend it.
