Property description


Get four (4) free access to the spas and get spoiled at the wonderful Manoir Richelieu for two weekdays reservations.

Just relax, do nothing, play piano on the superb grand piano, read a few books selected from the old bookshelf in this five bedroom Victorian house and three bathrooms located directly on the St-Laurence river in the wonderful village of St-Irénée-les-Bains. This House is all yours to occupy ! It offers you a peaceful environment where the light comes shining through the 36 windows and doors and where, with a bit of luck, the belugas will come knocking at your door! You want to stop the clock and get back to the fundamentals of your life with your family, your friends or just by yourself? You plan to do all sorts of outdoor activities? Great! However, be ready to change your plans like so many people who have come in this home with an ambitious program but, because of the magic of the site, have changed their plans so that they can just enjoy being here. For a much reduced cost, you can also use the hottubs and pools at the Fairmont Hotel or the wonderful spa at La Ferme Hotel in Baie St-Paul (owned by the ski resort Le Massif)

For sport lovers: If you are active and want action, you are less 30 minutes from hiking in the most beautiful trails. Check the 'Parc des Hautes Gorges', the ' Acropole des Draveurs' or 'Le mont du Lac des cygnes'. For golf, you have one of the most beautiful golf courses in Canada, Le Manoir Richelieu golf course. You may prefer going on a bicycle tour? Try the Ile aux Coudres bike trail. Fantastic! In winter time, the ski is fantastic. Visit the Massif ski resort, the best place for skiing in eastern Canada at 35 minutes from our place! You prefer cross country skiing? 10 minutes from the house and you are surrounded by a beautiful environment in the paths that are especially groomed.

For arts lovers: Charlevoix is a paradise for painters. It has plenty of art galleries. Also, for music lovers, you can go to a classic concert at le 'Domaine Forget' located 5 minutes from our house.

For farniente lovers : Just watch the belugas from our own veranda! True, they are often there, not far from the shore, at the end of the afternoon in summertime. Or, go whale watching! It is a 30 minute drive. Or, just stay at home, read a good book, listen to good music or play piano on the grand piano! Don't forget, everything is supplied. You just need to bring your food and you piano partitions !

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1995

About: University professor in Quebec city, father of two, stepfather of two, step grandfather of 4 ! All girls !

Why St-Irenee:
I bought the land in 1994 because of its size and unique location.You cannot be closer to the St Lawrence river and it is located on a private road where you can hear and see the birds in the morning and, with a bit of luck, see the whales from the veranda ! I drew the plans of the house and had it built by local carpenters in the 1995-96. Since then, hundreds of persons enjoyed the house for a week end, a week or even for a longer period. It is a unique house furnished with treasures that I have found through the years.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is large enough to allow a dozen people to feel at ease but yet, I had clients that came just by themselves, one person or a couple, for a retreat, playing on the grand piano, painting, writing, singing ! They keep coming back !!
