This heritage building was built in 1835 for Henry Atkinson, a wealthy merchant. It was home to a hotel until 1841, then to Major-General James Hope, followed by a member of the middle class, a legislative counsel, the owner/manager of the Bank of British North America, financier William Molson Macpherson (grandson of the founder of a national brewery) and a prominent judge, before it was passed onto an orphanage in 1948. The building was divided into condominiums in the 1980s.

About Property Owner
Becoming the owner of this cozy loft in 2010 was a dream come true. The condo is located in a heritage building that dates back to 1835, when it was built for a wealthy businessman by the name of Henry Atkinson. The exterior is made of the Sillery-Cap-Rouge sandstone that now forms part of the Québec fortifications and the walls of the Citadel and that was used to restore the Saint-Jean Gate in 1938. En grande passionnée de voyages, j'éprouve une immense satisfaction personnelle à préparer votre séjour chez moi. Pardon... chez vous. C'est vrai, vous vous sentirez ici comme chez vous. C'est ma promesse et c'est l'une des choses que j'ai le plus à coeur. Si vous connaissez déjà la belle ville de Québec, vous avez une longueur d'avance et vous passerez des vacances fabuleuses. Sinon, venez faire sa découverte et celle de ses nombreuses complices. Partez à Baie St-Paul, à Tadoussac et aux Bergeronnes, puis attardez-vous un temps à St-Irénée et à Pointe-au-Pic. Prenez le temps de remonter la rivière Saguenay et, par-delà le majestueux St-Laurent, de visiter St-Séverin en Beauce et le parc du Bic. Enfin, n'oubliez pas de faire un crochet par les incontournables que sont Kamouraska, St-Jean-Port-Joli et la multitude d'îlots éparpillés comme des confettis dans les eaux du St-Laurent. Il vous faudra bien un mois pour voir tout cela, non? Bonnes vacances!

Why Property Owner chose La Cité-Limoilou
The loft has the feel of a home. The place is very comfortable, charming and the location couldn't be better. Experiencing Québec City and the surroundings is really worth the trip. I look forward to welcoming you here. Until then, please check out my Reviews section for the numerous positive comments received from guests over the years. And when you are there at the loft, feel free to go through my guestbook and read their comments. Don't forget to write something about your stay!
What makes this Condo unique
Being just steps to everything while enjoying the privacy of this property overlooking the Esplanade Park is something you will truly value. And who wouldn't like waking up to the sound of horses' hooves on the cobblestone, or seeing a groundhog during a morning walk on the Plains of Abraham just around the corner! In addition, those who like to stay connected while getting a breath of fresh air will be happy to know that there are Wi-Fi hot spots for free Internet access in multiple sectors of the Plains of Abraham.But this may not be necessary as the property's Wi-Fi connection also works perfectly while sipping your coffee on the bench across the street!

Great Stay, Great Location
We have just returned from a wonderful stay at this loft-condo. We have visited Quebec City many times in the past and my wife and I both feel this was our overall favorite accommodation. The location is perfect for easy access to all the different neigjborhoods and restaurants throughout the city. The condo has everything you would need and is set up just right for a romantic stay for couples. Odette was very helpful and provided all the information that we needed.
Great location and very comfortable
We really enjoyed our stay in Quebec and our apartment inside city walls We loved everything about Quebec and liked being almost at the top of the hill near the Plains of Abraham park where we hiked/walked almost every day. The apartment is so close to activities, entertainment, and delicious restaurants. Although you do not need a car in old Quebec we were grateful for a dedicated parking space and actually did not move our car for the first 3 weeks we were there. The apartment has everything you need. We would rent it again if we return to Quebec again if it was available
This warm and charming loft-appartement is perfectly located in Old QC. I had a vehicle but did not require it. You can walk to the train station in 10 minutes if you choose rail travel. Grocery and liquor stores, restaurants are all within easy walking distance. The owner was courteous and provided all necessary information. Just bring your clothes and enjoy. It's a 5 for me.
We really enjoyed our stay in Quebecity. Even though we know the City, it is always a pleasure to revisit.
We enjoyed our stay at the apartement which is really Very Well situated and the apartement itself is very agreable.
Thanks for everything. Nicole & Hubert
Nicole and Hubert are guests like you would want to host every day. My property had to undergo some window replacement work during their stay and this lovely couple showed the utmost understanding and cooperation. They are also very friendly and courteous. I hope they return.
We loved everything about Le Loft. It was perfect for my wife and me during our month in Québec City. Everything about the apartment was just right. It is a perfect location for everything inside and outside Vieux Québec. We did not have a car, but that did not prevent us from doing anything. What a wonderful place!
Wonderful from start to finish..
We had decided to take a place in Quebec that would allow a comfortable time to enjoy all the sweet little place has to offer. The apartment we selected was just perfect. It's location is such that we could walk everywhere and then return for a rest before heading out again to explore.
The apartment provides everything one could want without any need for spending time shopping for little extras..it's there. We used the fully stocked kitchen to do a bit of cooking and found it perfect.
If you are interested in having a quality time in a lovely setting, you could not do better than to choose this apartment. The owner was there when we arrived and was easily reachable at all times, providing suggestions and support.
The parking was right across the street so we had no worries about using the car when we wanted to do some little trips. However, everything one could want is easily reachable without ever needing to drive.
What a lovely couple! Although they never complained, I must say my TV was a little outdated, i.e. it didn't have the Internet feature and perhaps the picture was not that great. So what did my lovely guests do? They went out and bought a new TV – same brand, same size – which I then bought back from them because I too thought the sharp picture and the Internet feature were something that my future guests might enjoy. Furthermore, they saved me the shopping trip. But of course the lovely couple didn’t expect me to buy the TV back. If I didn’t want to keep it, they were ready to take it home with them! I hope to have the pleasure of hosting them again.
There is a lot to do in Québec City: outdoor ice skating at Place d'Youville or on the newly opened ice rink on the Plains of Abraham, also a nice place for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and rollerskating. And in the close surroundings, there is petanque, archery, hebertism and treetop games, hang-gliding and skydiving. Other attractions and amenities include: outdoor public swimming pool, waterpark, bicycle rental, horse-drawn carriages (at your doorstep); the Image Mill, boat cruises, etc. Enjoy a bicycle ride on one of the many cycle paths in and around Québec City. Even take your bicycle on the Québec-Lévis ferry and follow the path along the St. Lawrence River to capture the most spectacular views of Québec, stop by the marina to quench your thirst and have lunch or pick a place for picnic and enjoy the view. Montmorency Falls and Île d'Orléans are two must-see places. For more information, you should visit the Tourist Bureau, located at 12 rue Ste-Anne, right across from Château Frontenac.
