Property description

Enjoy a truly relaxing atmosphere, a fantastic location while still being only 35 minutes away from downtown Montreal. This is truly a first class accommodation in a perfect setting. Ideal for a couple looking for a short term vacation rental near Montreal. From Montreal, you can easily get here either by car (the apartment on the river is located one minute driving time from the nearest highway exit) or by public transportation (you take the subway to Montmorency station, then you take bus #19 to Terrebonne terminal, you are then a 10 mins walk to the apartment)

Located right on the river side, this 'rez de jardin' apartment offers one bedroom, a living room/dining area and a fully equipped kitchen. The bathroom is equipped with a washer and dryer. You have a beautiful view of the river and its population of Canada geese, cormorants, great herons and other birds. In the summer time, you can sun bathe by the river side, or take the available canoë to go out for a short expedition between the islands.
Alternatively, you can just enjoy your favorite drink right on the floating deck.

If you enjoy fishing, you can fish right from the floating deck, starting on July 1st. Prior to that date, the portion of the river is a sanctuary and fishing is forbidden. From the deck, you can catch walleye (dore), bass and laquaiche.

You are walking distance from at least 15 restaurants in Old Terrebonne, Ile des Moulins and its public library, TVT (Théatre du Vieux Terrebonne) where there is something going on almost every evening.

During the ski season, you are within 40 mins driving time to a number of ski resorts, including Mont Saint-Sauveur. There is an exterior skating rink on the river, near Ile des Moulins, it will take only a few minutes walking to get there.

Outside of heavy traffic hours, it will take you 35 mins to drive to downton Montreal.

Free Wi-Fi. Large flat screen TV with cable. CD player

Parking space for 2 cars.

This apartment is ideal for 2 people. A third person can be accommodated.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Bernard, 60, retired at 57. I love traveling and meeting people. I have worked in 3 fairly different fields: air traffic control for 8 years, then I had restaurants for 5 years and finally I have been in sales for over 25 years, either as a sales representative or various levels of sales management. With my life partner Dominique, we bought this beautiful house on the river side in 2005. Now that all of our six kids (3 each) are on their own, we wish to rent the 'rez de jardin' apartment to short term renters. We figure that we can use this additional income to help us travel more while giving us the opportunity to meet people from around the world.
