Overview

About the property

2 BR + 1 Bath - (Sleeps 4-6)

Our appartment Gallery 2 is in a meticulously restored century old building close to downtown and minutes from the subway (Metro), the Atwater Market and the historic Lachine Canal. An ideal home away from home for anyone that wants to be in one of the most dynamic villages in Montreal.

This 2 bedroom second floor unit is bright and sleeps 4 to 6. Finished with hardwood floors, it is spotlessly clean & tastefully decorated with original art, high quality furnishings, linens & appointments throughout. Lots of natural light, fans in every room and AC unit. It features a master bedroom with a queen size sleigh bed and 1 bedroom with 2 single beds. The den has a sofa with a double pull out bed. Also in the den there is a flat screen TV and a collection of DVD’s from our library of over 100 movies for all ages. We also offer cable TV and high speed wifi internet available throughout the apartment.

The bathroom has a deep tub perfect to relax after a good day of sightseeing and is equipped with a front loading washer & dryer. The dining room is beside the all equipped kitchen with dishwasher that leads out to a very large deck with two patio sets and two BBQ’s (Gallery 1 shares the deck with you). The deck is next to a beautiful rooftop garden. All our units also come stocked with books and board games. Called the GALLERY 2 because this is 1 of 3 units in the building that is located next to our neighbour Jane private art gallery & studio.

For a good idea of what you’ll experience, please read our REVIEWS. Our guests keep coming back because we offer great value and a quality experience in a dynamic but quiet neighbourhood, close to downtown and has many of Montreal’s top restaurants. Our other units in the same building are Gallery 1 (#211812) & Gallery 3 (#193135)

Good food is just steps away at the deluxe IGA grocery store or the delicious Atwater market where you can savor gourmet foods, pastries and deli style food. If you prefer to eat out, we are a few minutes walking from some of Montreal’s top restaurants (Joe Beef, Tuck Shop, H4C, Smoking Vallee, CHO, McKiernans, Magnans Tavern) or if you prefer a drink in a hip setting there is La Drinkerie, Burgundy Lion, Grumman 78, Ludger.

Aside from fine dining, there are many things to do in this area. Depending on the season, you could catch a famous Canadians hockey game at the Bell Center, go rock climbing at Allez-Up indoor rock climbing gym or rent a kayak and paddle on the Lachine Canal.

You can also walk or cycle on the Lachine Canal bike path which is just 15 minutes by bike to the Old Port and Old Montreal. Note that you can leave your bikes at home because we provide 4 adult bikes free of charge with helmet and locks based on a first come first serve system. Finally, for small children and family there is a nice park with playground and splash pad just one block away.

About Etienne Masse

I travel a lot myself renting this kind of properties and always take good notes of every positif aspects to try to incorporate them in our apartments. I always wanted to own a hotel and this about as close as it gets.

I enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I also believe that we offer a great value to travellers. We've made our apartments up as if we were renting them ourselves. We take pride on being good hosts and offering you a great stay. We honestly try to make every aspect of your stay a pleasant experience.

Etienne Masse purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Etienne Masse chose Montreal

Great area, good restaurants and we are very close to the subway system (called Metro) downtown reachable in minutes just a couple of station away.

Very close to the Atwater market where there is great food and restaurants. We are also minutes from the Canal Lachine which has great bike paths and walking areas that lead to the Old Port of Montreal.

What makes this apartment unique

Proximity to downtown / Old Montreal, walking distance to the Atwater market, Metro (subway) Place St-Henri, grocery store, lot of really good restaurants and nice pubs.

Perfectly located in a vibrant neighbourhood to come and enjoy the real Montreal experience!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved everything about this charming apartment! The owner was so easy to deal with, and very accessible to answer all questions. He even took time to install the air conditioner while getting ready to leave the province for his son's wedding! The apartment is immaculate, meticulously maintained and well equipped for everything you need. The outdoor deck and barbecue were a huge bonus, as was the washer and dryer. Beds were very comfortable and the deep soaker tub (with shower) was lovely. The only thing I'd ever add to this great place is a small coffee table in the sitting room - so we could have a place to lay our glass of wine at the end of the day! The location is excellent as well - this was my first visit to Montreal, on a cross-country trip, and it is quite easy to access travelling east on the Trans Canada Highway. It is just around the corner from a Metro stop, which was wonderful to visit all parts of Montreal. Lots of great little restaurants in the area as well - we ate at the Greenspot Diner (good diner food) and The Burgundy Lion Pub (amazing menu! highly recommended). There is also an IGA just up the road, great for supplies. And also quite close to the great Atwater Market, which we really enjoyed visiting. The canal is very nearby also, and is great for walking. We stayed 4 nights in Gallery #2 apartment, and would very definitely return. We highly recommend staying here!

Quiet street in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment! Very clean and well kept. Many thanks to John and Jane for their warm welcome and supply of fresh Montreal bagels! The owners were always available if needed. Well organized local information and wireless internet on site. Quiet location close to Atwater Market, the Lachine canal, and downtown. Recently renovated and plenty of space for our 16 month old to roam. We visit Montreal often and the apartment was perfect for our family gathering (fully equipped kitchen). We're planning to rent the unit again for upcoming visits.

Clean and convenient location with a large deck.

  • 5 of 5

Spacious condo (we are a family of 5) in a quiet neighborhood. Neighbors were very friendly. Parking was easy in front of condo and corner store within steps. Many restaurants and shops within a 5-10 min walk. Close to city transit but we never used it. We found parking to be easy all around Montreal, that includes downtown and Old Montreal. Highly recommend this place.

Awesome location; super clean and very responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place to stay for a small family: cool playground really close, Atwater Market walking distance and canal Lachine 5min away. The deck was awesome; we BBQ almost every nights. The place was very clean and as described in the add. The owner was very quick responding to any questions or issues.

Would totally try to stay there again on my next trip to Montreal.

Clean and well maintained

We had a nice time in Montreal, and it was due to the flat we leased being clean and well maintained. We really enjoyed the balcony porch and bikes.

Appartement parfait dans St-Henri

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est exactement comme sur les photos et est très bien équipé. Il n'y manquait absoulment rien. La grande terrasse est très agréable. La proximité du canal Lachine et du marché Atwater est un plus. La communication avec le propriétaire a été facile avant et pendant le séjour. Il y a beaucoup de bons restaurants et commerces sympathiques à proximité. La station de métro est seulement à quelques minutes de marche. J'y retournerais sans hésiter!
