About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Cottage, Sleeps 4 - Perfect For A Single Family

Admire the St. Lawrence River in its finest splendor ...

Welcome to our summer getaway! Our cottage offers breathtaking views of the St. Lawrence River and the North Shore. We are 20 minutes from all the offerings of Quebec City and even closer to Levis and Ste-Foy.

Completely renovated in 2011, we have been careful to keep the quaintness of the place. The two bedroom cottage can accommodate 4 people and is perfect for a single family.

It is fully furnished with dishes, bedding, a fondue pot, washer / dryer, outdoor BBQ, patio set, fireplace (wood provided), etc.

We also have a flat screen TV and wireless and baby equipment can be provided if required.

You will find all necessary services nearby- grocery stores, butchers, fromagerie, public market, restaurants, theater, golf course, bike path, etc.

We live in Monteal and rent when we cannot be there. We are sure you will love the peacefulness as much as we do!

About Leslie Russell

Hi! We're a family of three who live in Montreal. Mario is from Quebec City so we visit there as much as possible. I am originally from Newfoundland (Island on the east coast of Canada) ... hence the draw of the St. Lawrence River.

Leslie Russell purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Leslie Russell chose Levis

This cottage was originally built and owned by Mario's grandfather. We jumped at the chance to have it back in the family when it came up for sale. It is next to Mario's parents so a great location for visiting the grandparents!

What makes this cottage unique

Definitely the view of the river and sitting on the balcony listening to the waves. So close to Quebec City and Levis but in the middle of mother nature! We love that ......

Wonderful Waterfront retreat

  • 5 of 5

This lovely little cottage overlooks the picturesque St. Lawrence River. It's breathtakingly beautiful. The kitchen is nicely equipped with everything we needed and Leslie's dad was extremely helpful with directions. My only critique is, the beds are small. I would definitely recommend this cottage and would stay there again.

Wonderful Cottage on the banks of the St Lawrence

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in the cottage along the St Lawrence River. Our intention was to visit the historic city of Quebec that is only 15-20 mins drive away.

The location of the cottage is marvellous and is handy for the cities of Quebec and Levis whilst situated along a quiet and peaceful road with fantastic views of the St Lawrence. The fully equipped cottage was very useful to us and allowed us to cook some meals at our leisure. Also the patio with BBQ was very welcome on the pleasant evenings when we sat outside.

At low tide the beach is exposed below the cottage and we were able to walk and see plenty of wildlife along the river. On our visit we appeared to have the whole beach to ourselves.

This cottage is clean and comfortable with TV and wifi but is ideal for those who would like to visit the sites of Quebec and then be able to retire to a quiet retreat after a day of sightseeing.

We will return for sure !

Great time

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay with a great view and relaxing atmosphere. The only complaint I have which is not their fault would be the bed is really small. I am 6'3" and my feet would hang over the end of the bed a good 5-6 inches. Just something to be aware of if you are tall but the rest makes up for it. Definitely would recommend to everyone.

Very nice.

  • 4 of 5

We used this quaint little cottage as our home base for 20 - 30 min. trips in and around Quebec City. It has a lovely view of the river and little yard to enjoy cool summer breezes. Much nicer than a hotel. Although spartan in homier comforts, it is exceptionally clean for a rental cottage.

Cute, clean, quiet, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our small family was very comfortable here. Close enough for day trips to Quebec City and to Ile d'Orleans, nice and quiet to come back to for rest at the end of the day. Owners are personable and quick to respond to any inquiries. Great to have laundry on site.

Waterfront get-away

  • 5 of 5

This property delivered 100%--accurate descriptions, honest photos, prompt and cordial communications from the host. Family members of the host live two doors away; they provided a friendly and helpful greeting, respected my privacy, but were readily accessible had a question or problem occurred. From the deck there are terrific views of the St Lawrence, you're close enough to hear the tides change, and there's enough tree cover to assure decent birding. Also, there's close-by access to the shoreline for short walks at low tide. The cottage itself is small, but well-appointed, very clean, and comfortable; that said, take note that the bath is on the main level, the bedroom is upstairs and is accessed by a short, narrow, steep staircase. This was not a problem for me (and probably would not be so for most guests), but it may not be a safe/suitable design for someone with mobility issues, especially at night. This property offers a great chance to get away from the ever-so-fast-encroaching urban hustle. That said, grocery shopping, restaurants, bridges to Quebec city, and all possible amenities are within an easy drive; the Levis-Quebec ferry gives you a no-drive option for enjoying the historic district of Quebec city on foot. I would recommend this to anyone interested in spending time in this region--and I hope to return myself!
