Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 full Baths, lots of space dining & livingroom

Built in the late 1700s this is one of the first homes built in the area but updated to have the comforts and conveniences of modern day but the charm of the past. 5 bedrooms; 4 bedrooms upstairs- three rooms with King size beds and one room with a queen & double bed. The upstairs landing also has a double pull out couch. The downstairs has a trundle bed with two single beds. All major appliances and the hot tub is operational from April to October. There is high speed internet and Bell Expressvu tv.

The Old Stone Home is located in a picturesque shallow bay, with very little boat traffic as the bay ends several hundred yards past the home. The shipping channel is two miles/three kilometres away from both homes, so there is no chance of someone being swamped in a canoe by the waves of a 1000 foot freighter. Bring your fishing rod, the fishing ranges from good to great! We have several kayaks that you can use during your stay. Your vacation home is situated on the hill will allows for a beautiful panoramic waterfront view of the mighty St. Lawrence river. When raining there is an upstairs is an enclosed deck . Large patio with tables and chairs to have your meals outdoors and fire bowl on the patio or you can have a fire down by the river.

Area attractions include- Fort Wellington (famous in the battle of 1812) in Prescott, Fort Henry in Kingston, Upper Canada village, Chrysler park, wild life Bird Sanctuary as well as within an hour of Ottawa

The owners home is to the east and there is a shared dock and there is a screened in gazebo and open air gazebo for your use.

This is truly a fantastic place and a wonderful place to spend a couple of days or week with your family and friends.

About Christine Joli-Coeur

Both Randy and I are relatively newbies to the area having lived her just under 20 years.

Christine Joli-Coeur purchased this chateau / country house in 2005

Why Christine Joli-Coeur chose Ontario

When we first purchased we had been living in a smaller cottage in the area for a number of years. Initially we thought to rent it for a few years and move in when the kids were older. The advent of our third child made us rethink and we built a home a bit south and west of this historic home. Why this home? When I first walked in the home I had an ovewhelming sense of history. A glimpse of the past. This home is one of the pioneer homes of the area. It is truly one of the most historic homes in the area and we feel honoured to be able to share it with others.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Really nice place for large families or a couple of families. Lots of space to eat either at the kitchen table or the formal dining room table (both fit more than 10). So you don't need to pack up the chess or monopoly game at meal time. Lots of place to get away from the action like the second story closed in porch with a beautiful view of the river, sit on the large window sills in the bedrooms to read a book or outside on the large interlock patio overlooking the St. Lawrence river and Island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would like to share with you some kind words from our recent guests. "We certainly enjoyed staying at your historic rental home on the Saint Lawrence Seaway. The feature we particularly enjoyed was the large patio facing river. We took our coffee there in the morning, relaxed there during the cocktail hour and cooked the entre for most dinners on the open wood/charcoal burning fire pit. We also took advantage of the kayaks you provided and the large eat in kitchen. Of course, the fact that your part of Ontario is truly beautiful also helped.



We also appreciated all the advice, biking maps, activity information, etc which you provided. This support was facilitated by the positive relationship we developed during the initial correspondence and personal contact once we were there and which I believe can be one of the best features of the VRBO program for both the owner and guest. I try to establish similar relationships and provide similar support when renting our own second home in South Carolina via VRBO.



Thanks again, "

Huge historic house on river!

  • 5 of 5

Went with 10 adults and 5 small children for Canada Day, the house was fantastic. It's huge inside and the property is massive. Right on a bay of the St Lawrence river. We all enjoyed the hot tub and fire in the patio. It was under 1hr drive in to downtown Ottawa for Canada day. Christine and Randy were really friendly hosts and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend staying at their lovely hius run Johnstown!

beautiful historic house

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here to celebrate our parents 50th anniversary. This is a great property, something for everyone. The kids loved the playset, the adults loved the hot tub, and my brother-in-law loved the fishing. Within the first five minutes he had caught the biggest fish of his life! This is central to a lot of wonderful activities, we went to Kingston to tour the Penn and to Gananoque for the boat cruise, but isolated and quiet.

Thank you Christine!

Great house for a big group

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I rented this house for new years and it was great! The house is a perfect size for a big group with many beds (very comfy too). The kitchen is fully equipped. The only think I would suggest is a new flat screen television so that guests can enjoy a nice movie and so guests have the option of hooking up their laptops or game consoles for Netflix. Other than that, great stay!
