The bedroom has a comfortable, pillow top queen-size bed complete with fluffy European down comforter and pillows to make your sleep luxurious.

About Cherie Gregor

While every subsequent owner of La Maison Dumas has left their impression on the house, extensive renovations by the current owner has allowed her to open the guest apartment to the public in 1997 and resulted in the beautiful building seen today. The proprietor, Cherie Gregor, remains committed to the on-going restoration of La Maison Dumas and the revitalization of Old Montreal.

Cherie Gregor purchased this apartment in 1995

What makes this apartment unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Cherie,

Elaine and I hope you're having as enjoyable a time as we've had visiting your wonderful city .. and staying in your amazingly cozy apartment.



We have had such a pleasant stay .... in large measure on account of the exceptionally special home we've been privileged to stay in during our Montreal week.



We most definitely plan to return to Montreal and most definitely would only do so if we could again be accommodated in La Maison Dumas.



Thanks again for inviting us to stay in your lovely, 'it's got everything', apartment.



Kindest regards.



Leo and Elaine

Beautiful historic property in old Montreal

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cherie's place in October. It was the perfect combination of location in old Montreal and historic lodging. All of the restaurants and attractions of old Montreal are within walking distance. I hope to return some day soon.

update...

  • 5 of 5

just noticed a spelling error in my review (and they dont allow you to edit your reviews...)

I wanted to say that Cherie communicates very WELL (not very week). She deserves an excellent review and wanted to make sure that was clear ;-)

History and charm

  • 5 of 5

We came for a "Cousin's Getaway"and this home had everything we needed and then some.

Exploring Old Montreal and the Old Port all within walking distance. The best part was coming back to "La Maison Dumas" at the end of the day and putting our feet up, relaxing surrounded with all the history and beauty this home has to offer.

Thank you Cherie, you were an absolute pleasure to deal with.
