Winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. The accommodations were exactly as listed. We were close enough to Quebec City but still had a quite oasis where we could build a snowman and sled down the hill.

Perfect property for a large group.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house, very spacious. Our family of ten(3 generations) enjoyed our time here. A perfect White Christmas celebration. We cooked our Christmas dinner in the well equipped kitchen.

David was helpful with any requests. Even arranged a baby crib for our young grandaughter. The house gives you plenty of space .

We had a great time tobogganing down the snow covered drive.

Thanks to David & Ginette

Great Views !

  • 4 of 5

We had a very good time in this nice big house. Lots of space for evryone. loved sitting on the decks and enjoying the view of the river. We played a game called the pit and it was so much fun! Cooked dinners and enjoyed grilling steaks on the deck. Nice bathrooms and house floorplan was great for my family with bedrooms on upper floor and bottom floor. Living space on middle floor. Allowed for privacy and quite time.

All that was promised

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults stayed here for 5 nights. We enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets over the river. We had some initial questions but the owner was very responsive. We cooked dinner every night in the gourmet kitchen. We explored Quebec City during the day. The owner gave us great instructions on how to find shopping and the farmer's market. It was a great family vacation!

A perfect home for a family vacation especially if they enjoy cooking and grilling.

  • 4 of 5

After a daunting drive down a wooded drive way, we discovered the estate on the river as promised. This spacious and open home provided awesome views of the Saint Laurence River, fog, sunny days and at times breathtaking sunsets. Our family group ranged from 6-10 adults during our 6 day stay. The advertised spacious gourmet kitchen was perfect for a our family members who enjoy cooking gourmet dishes. It was nice to have spices already there as well as a plethora of cooking utensils and serving dishes. It was awesome to have 5 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths and washer and dryer as well. Our goals of family time together, shared meals, games, privacy, closeness to Quebec City and airport were met. The owner was responsive to our phone calls about the location of a couple of items. "A Family with Member from the USA (South Carolina, Ohio, New York & San Diego)."

Would recommend this property.

  • 4 of 5

This rental property is well appointed inside and is complete with everything you need. We are a family of 5, with 3 adult sized children and we had plenty of room. There were beautiful views of the St. Lawrence river. I would love to return during the summer months to thoroughly enjoy the outside property.

We encountered one issue upon arrival but the owners responded promptly. The heat was not working, which was a major issue in the winter. Their lovely neighbors came over immediately, looked into the issue, and made us huge fire. A contractor was called the issue was fixed in a few hours.

Lastly the location was fairly convenient to downtown Quebec and skiing, If you don't mind driving a good 20-30 minutes each way. Food stores and other stores were very convenient, within 10 minutes drive.

The owners were quick to respond before and during the trip. I would recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Pamela and her husband were easy to communicate with. There had been an electrical outage just a few days prior to their checking in and it blew a fuse in the furnace. We had it repaired within a short time and our good neighbors built a fire which warmed the house before the furnace was repaired. We would recommend Pamela and their group to stay with any hosts and hope they will come back to see us. David & Ginette
