The house was so beautiful and unique

  • 5 of 5

It was close enough to the city but felt like a peaceful sanctuary from the hustle bustle.

Joann was wonderful and very informative about all the attractions and things to do in the area. Although she is selling this property, I'm sure her other property in Montreal will be as delightful.

Didn't want to go home!

  • 4 of 5

This was my second stay in this beautiful home. It is located in a quite neighborhood with plenty of restaurants and shopping close by. The neighbors were friendly and helpful. The kitchen is well equipped with pots and pans, etc. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. There is wi-fi in the home but not high speed and no cable/satellite which was OK for my husband and myself but was a disappointment for my teenage son. We ended up making a stop at Walmart to get him a couple of dvd's for our stay. The backyard retreat is perfect for relaxing. We spent a lot of time relaxing in the pool. The BBQ could use some attention (repair or replacement) as there were some high flames on one side. We had a fantastic stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay a third time!

Lovely home from home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The house is full of character and very comfortable. Joann left everything we required for our stay. We particularly enjoyed the garden with its pool, and the setting was gorgeous, only a few minutes walk from the national park and backing on to a park with a small boating lake. The shops were close by and with everything that we needed. It was easy to drive to Montreal about 40 minutes away. Highly recommended. Pat (Nottingham)

Hip and cozy retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house far surpassed our expectations !!..

The overall charm and beauty of the house are not captured in the pictures, you must see it in person to appreciate it's true beauty . It was a true getaway that not only had charm on the inside but the outside was just as wonderful. Joann was extremely friendly and we had a fantastic time on our vacation staying at her gypsie artist house.

The house is located in a suburb city in a rural area beside the St Bruno mountain , little pond, children playground and tennis. There is ski and cross country skiing at 5 minutes. There is ice skating on the little lake behind. Walk in the mountain, Private pool, Montreal with lot of festivals at 30 minutes. Quebec city at 2 hours. St-Laurent river and Richelieu offer wonderful scenic drives and typical old houses.
