Welcome to our large, gracious home on one of the most elegant residential streets of the Plateau District. We're located just minutes from Rue St. Denis and Blvd. St. Laurent. Our 1890's brownstone has warmth and charm...and lots of bedrooms and baths! We're within a short walking distance (12-15 minutes) of all the Montreal Festivals (Jazz, Comedy, etc), the famous Mount Royal Park, and located in the heart of one of the best restaurant and shopping districts in the city. If you're heading further afield, we're about an 8-minute walk to the Sherbrooke metro, or you can rent one of Montreal's famous 'BIXI' bikes at the corner of our street.
Everything is set up to make your stay easy and enjoyable. The house is air-conditioned, and has a lovely garden....perfect for your 'cinq a sept' (French for Happy Hour) before the evening's entertainment.
Two of the bedrooms have en-suite full baths, the third room has a private 1/2 bath, and the fourth room has a private balcony. All beds are Queen-size. (single blow-up bed available if needed). There's also a large Victorian family bath with full laundry facilities, and a powder room on the main floor.
On evenings when you aren't sampling some of the great bistros and restaurants, our solarium or deck are terrific places to dine: throw open the garden doors and have a an enjoyable alfresco evening. We even provide a full map of the neighborhood...where to shop for the best cheeses, pastries, vegetables, etc. As for the necessities, you'll find our home well stocked: a fully equipped kitchen, soft bedding, lots of towels, 48' HD TV with Blue Ray, Wii game console, phone, WiFi, stereo system - there's even a piano!
Should you need assistance while you are here, our manager lives 2 blocks away and is available to help you.

About the owner: I am a musician with the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.
I adopted Montreal as my hometown when I was just a student. I consider it one of the great cities of North America.
Why the Owner Chose Montreal: I've loved living in the Plateau where I can walk to work each day and do my marketing on the way home.
The atmosphere of the neighborhood is friendly and lively, and the streets are safe.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Wikipedia describes the Plateau as one of the 'coolest' neighborhoods in North America... need I say more?
