The cottage is one bedroom/bathroom. A fold-away cot is available if required (it fits in the bedroom). The cottage is fully furnished, including a BBQ - you just need your clothes. WiFi and cable are included. We also just renovated the bathroom (March 2016).

About Leslie Russell

We live in Montreal with our little daugther Anna. Mario is from Quebec and we spend as much time as possible there. I am from Newfoundland (small island on the east coast of Canada) and Quebec City is one of my favorite cities in the world! I have travelled a lot so that means something!

Leslie Russell purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Leslie Russell chose Saint-Nicolas

Mario's summer cottage was just next door and his grand-father originally developed this area of cottages.

What makes this cottage unique

One wall of the cottage is entirely windows. So beautiful to wake up to the view of only water and trees ..... I love to have my coffee on the terrace and just relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Escape to Tranquility Cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great three day relaxing holiday at Leslie's cottage. The cottage has all the amenities needed for your total comfort and access to purchase food and wine and anything else you that you may need. Days we spent exploring the "Vieux Quebec" and the evenings were dedicated to serenity, crackling campfires and vintage wine.

Many thanks Leslie!

Good location.

  • 4 of 5

I loved the location. So close to the river and a 25 miniute drive to Quebec City! There is no air conditioning and the fan in the main room makes an awful rattling noise but other than that he place was a great size. I would definitely rent again.

property and location was great

  • 2 of 5

Cottage and location was great and had quick response from Mario and his sister with minor issue with wifi. They also helped with finding local attractions and points of interest. Quebec experience was much less than expected. This is not a town or province (Quebec) for non French speaking or reading tourists. Went hoping to see rich history of area and was very disappointed in how difficult it was to get around.

Peaceful with a lovely view

  • 4 of 5

The property was lovely for 2 adults. The view of the river was terrific. We also walked down to the river and, although it was quite a hike on the way back up to the cottage, it was worth it. The drive to QC took about a half hour with traffic however being away from the hustle and bustle of the city was what we wanted. There are few restaurants in the area but exploring further we discovered some delightful small gems. Great value for the money. This property would not be safe for small children nor would there be room. Best for two people.

Cozy and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

Cute little place with glimpses of the St. Lawrence River and sunset

through the trees. Kitchen well equipped. Woodland surrounding and very quiet. Very convenient to the bridge to Quebec City. A few tweaks would make it 5 stars.

Very pleasant cottage close to Quebec City

  • 5 of 5

Lovely setting on a steep road with shoreline access to the St. Lawrence River further down the hill. Even though we were 20 minutes from Quebec City, it felt like we were in the country. Plenty of local farms in the area but also close to more commercial shopping areas. The cottage is small, really just two rooms, but it was perfect for myself and two children with a mattress provided by our host. It was clean, airy and the property was well maintained. I would definitely recommend to friends and relatives.
