"The Garden Cottage"
You will love the cosy atmosphere and the big garden of this cottage located only 10 minutes from Old Montreal and downtown, close to the Atwater Market and Lachine Canal.
With its 4 bedrooms and approximately 1800 square feet, the Garden Cottage is perfect for families or large groups. It is ideal for groups of 8 to 10 guests but can accommodate up to 14 guests. Note: if you are a very big group, we also own the building right next to the Garden Cottage so you could take both houses.
The "Garden Cottage" is displayed on three levels and offers:
- 4 spacious closed bedrooms (3 upstairs and 1 downstairs) for a total of 10 guests. 3 bedrooms have comfortable Queen size beds and the ground floor bedroom has a bunk bed with a double-double bunk bed.
- 2 sofa-beds for 4 more guests.
2 mattresses to be put on floor.
- 2 bathrooms (1 upstairs with bath and 1 downstairs with shower) and 2 toilets
a huge BACKYARD with a terrace & BBQ (gaz not included)
- free and easy PARKING on both sides of this calm residential one way street
- a play area for children in the basement and a beautiful playground one corner away.
We tried to mix the best of "old and new" ! The cottage was built in 1870 so it has a lot of character: original wooden floors and brick walls.
The kitchen and dining room are on an open-space concept to maximise natural light. The table seats 8 to 12 guests. A dishwasher, microwave and all you need to cook is provided.
The huge garden with BBQ (gaz not included) and patio set is the perfect place to enjoy a good meal!
The cottage is located on a residential street, so it's very quiet at night.
INCLUDED: Air Conditioning, cable TV, high speed Wi-Fi internet, phone for local calls, washer and dryer, linens and towels for 14 guests, all you need to cook.
NOT INCLUDED: body soap, shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste.
--- The area---
Located in a quiet street in Pointe-St-Charles, a residential neighbourhood bordered by Old Montreal, the Lachine Canal and downtown. You will be downtown in 10 minutes. Close to a supermarket, a pharmacy and a children's playground. It's a very safe, family friendly neighborhood and you will sleep soundly as there is no traffic on the street at night.
--- Transport ---
METRO: It's a 12 minutes walk to the Charlevoix metro station (green line). From there, on the same metro line, it's only 6 stops to "Place des Arts" station (FESTIVALS) and 7 stops to "St-Laurent" station (nightlife, bars, clubs, restaurants).
BUS: It is very easy to access down-town by bus: our house is one corner away from a bus stop that takes you down-town in only 10 minutes (line 61 on Wellington street)!
BIKE & ROLLERBLADE: enjoy the 10 minute ride on the great bike path along the "canal" that brings you to the old montreal, or the beautifull bike and rollerblade path (over 100km long!) along the St-Laurent river that is just 5 minutes bike away from Pointe-Saint-Charles. There is a bike rental shop near the Atwater market and also the BIXI system, the famous Montreal self-access bike rental system.
- PARKING is free and easy on both sides of the one-way street.
NOTE: Snow removal is not included. A snow shovel and salt will be provided inside the house however. It is therefore possible that the access be difficult at times.
Note: if this place is not your dream place or is not available for your dates, you should know that we have many other options. Check-out our website: homeinmontrea . com and stayinmontreal . com. If you are a very big group, there is the Triplex on the left that is also ours (it has 1 big apartment on the ground floor) and so you can split up your groups between the "Garden Cottage" and the apartment in the neighbouring Triplex.+ More
