The Perfect Rental House
We came to find this little gem by looking for an out-of-the-way rental home that was near Montreal but also had outdoorsy things to do in the vicinity. This home fit the bill!
Everything we needed was here - with so many extras. We traveled with 4 kids, ages 9, 8, 6, and 4. I think the home would be great for families or a romantic getaway. The sunsets are stunning and it sits directly on the water with gorgeous views throughout the home and from the large deck.
The location is perfect; just a few minute drive to restaurants, the grocery store, liquor store, and quaint downtown Chambly is just 5 minutes away. Chambly has a historic state park and fort, charming dining options with al fresco patios on the water, and a marina with boat rentals. We rented a wooden motor boat there for just $75 USD and had a great afternoon of exploring the basin and river from the water (which is quite large!), we went back to the house for lunch and docked the boat there. It gave us a whole new perspective on the area.
It's great to have the water right there, with the private beach area and dock - free fun for the kids and adults helps to keep the vacation budget in check. There was great fishing when we were there. My son caught his first pike, and it was big :) There's also a canoe and row boat with oars.
Montreal is about 25 minutes away without traffic. We were at the vacation home for 6 days and went to the city 3 times.
We don't speak French but everyone in this area does...and almost everyone is completely bilingual, which is very impressive. The people in this area were so welcoming, polite and kind. It was a great experience for the kids to see a different culture without it being too difficult. Very fun!
We had a wonderful vacation here in this home. It's clean. It's well-appointed with all the conveniences of home. The location is beautiful and there's lots to do in nature. Plus the location is convenient to Montreal for exploring there. This rental home was perfect in every way!
