About Greg and Jennifer Wright

My husband is a firefighter and I am a supply teacher. No matter what we are doing, we like to be together. Our children are 10 and 11 and Far Horizons is the perfect spot for us to enjoy both outdoor and indoor activities year round as a family. The children love it here, and we always feel like we are on vacation when we come.

Greg and Jennifer Wright purchased this house in 2009

Why Greg and Jennifer Wright chose Quebec

My husband and I fell in love with Far Horizons from the moment we saw it. Upon the purchase of Far Horizons, my brother Jeff dedicated this home as a place where dreams come true and lasting memories are created. We encourage each visitor to leave something small but meaningful of themselves for the next visitor to enjoy. We are grateful to have the opportunity to share this dream of ours with you. We hope you enjoy it.

What makes this house unique

We really enjoy coming to Far Horizons just to relax. It is so beautiful we feel privileged each time we come. We love to throw on our skis in the winter, and just ski out through the woods and across the golf course. We enjoy taking the kids down to the Chateau Montebello for a swim too, although we take part in many activities there. Once the kids are in bed, my husband and I really enjoy just lounging in the hot tub, or sitting in the lounge chairs in front of the large living room window with the lights out and the fireplace going just enjoying the view.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely and well equipped property.

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet location...peaceful and restful. Excellent views. Close to Montebello and capable of handling a mixture of adult groupings given the size and setup.

Women's Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A group of us women were feeling the impact of a long winter, we needed to getaway to recharge. We heard about Far Horizons and decided that this was the place that we could all go to recharge our batteries - recharge for ourselves and our families. We were so pleased that Far Horizons was the perfect place for all 11 of us.

Some people enjoyed the hot tub, others loved going for a nature walk, and the rest enjoyed the space in the home. The views were breath taking regardless of what room each person went to. There was plenty of space for us to spread out, relax, chat or even do different crafts/activities.

The dining room was a great place for us all to meet up, eat and enjoy each others' company. Food preparation was a breeze given the amount of space. Everything we needed was right at our fingertips.

The only issue we had during our stay was convincing everyone to go home when our stay was over. Many of us just wanted to stay and continue to enjoy the atmosphere - a home away from home.

We all can't wait until we can all find some time to do it again.

Thank you Far Horizons.

Amazing beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This place was incredible and a perfect place to have a gathering. We were 10 adults and never tripped over eachother. The house is FULLY equipped with everything you could ever need! And the owners are just as fabulous as the property - always available and quick to respond to any little question. Our gang has decided to make Far Horizons our go-to destination for our ladies getaways. I can't think of a single negative thing to day about my experience from the intial contact to after...by far the best VRBO experience I've ever had. Thank you Jennifer for sharing your slice of paradise.

Could not have asked for a better family day weekend. Highly recommend

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home in the winter and the views are spectacular - I think any time of year would be a completely different experience. The home is well-equipped with absolutely everything you need. So many rooms to enjoy and relax. Very close to the village of Montebello. Thank you!!

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the house, it's beautifully decorated, roomy with an amazing view. Perfect location for those travelling from Montreal and Ottawa. Hot tub was a nice extra that we enjoyed. It's not too far from town to visit the Chateau and to get supplies. The only complaint is that I wish that we could have stayed longer.
