Charming and Cozy!
If you are like us, we don't book before reading reviews, so when we read all the positive reviews about La Maison Dumas we felt we could not go wrong. The reviews are spot on and I promise you will not be disappointed. Cherie was great at communicating and met us to show us around the flat when we arrived and then left us, assuring us if we needed anything she would assist. You will have everything you need, and it was spotless and so comfortable. The heated bathroom floors were fantastic, and loved being able to turn on the fireplace whenever we wanted. Frankly, not sure why anyone would want to spend the night in a 350 sq. ft. hotel room when you could stay in this lovely home. It's furnished so tastefully and there is nothing you could want for. We are not B&B people (if you know what I mean) so we are always a bit leery of staying in someone's home when they live close by or upstairs, but I assure you that you will feel like you are just renting an apartment with the convenience of a concierge if you needed it. This is a fantastic choice when visiting Montreal!
A Beautiful Historic Retreat in Old Town Montreal!
As soon as my girlfriend, Megan and I spotted this property on the site, we knew we had to book a trip to Montreal! We try to book a stay at a historic property in a random location each winter, and it really doesn't get much better than La Maison Dumas! Everything about the experience was fantastic. Cherie and her boyfriend greeted us at the door on our day of arrival, and helped us in with our admittedly over-packed bags. They gave us a tour of the apartment, and we couldn't get over how perfectly the property had been turned into the ideal couple's retreat. The rooms are all beautifully lit and adorned with great decor, the kitchen is the perfect size, and the bed is very comfortable. Despite our trip taking place in the frigid month of January, the house was never too cold (which is impressive for a house of its age!), and the fireplace was all we needed to keep it cozy. The heated floor in the bathroom was a perfect touch as well! Everything about the house is just ideal--you really couldn't hope for a better place to stay in Montreal.
La Maison Dumas sits on the East end of Rue St. Paul, so you're just steps away from everything Old Town Montreal has to offer. Despite the prime location, there is no noticeable street noise from people and cars outside, so you really do get the best of both worlds! From the house, it's a ten minute walk to the Aura light show at Notre Dame, a bit less to get to La Grande Roue, and almost every shop and restaurant in Old Town is walkable in under ten minutes. It really doesn't get better than that. And if you hope to explore more of the city, like the Biodome, the metro station is just a few minute's walk away (and kudos to Montreal for having a very easy to understand subway system). The location, and the house itself, was so perfect, it made it very difficult to head home at the end of our vacation. If you're considering a trip to Montreal, La Maison Dumas is where you want to stay! We'd like to give Cherie a huge thanks for having us, and opening up her beautiful historic home. We hope to be back soon!
Marvelous base for Montreal!
We flew into Montreal late at night in a snowstorm, and our flight was extremely delayed, but Cherie waited up for us to give us a warm welcome and show us around the apartment (she lives just upstairs). With stone exterior walls and exposed beams, the apartment exudes the historic charm of Old Montreal; at the same time it is beautifully decorated, supremely comfortable, and immaculate. Location can't be beat on the quiet east end of Old Montreal, with lots of great restaurants in the neighborhood. Montreal is a very manageable sized city, so anywhere in the city is easy enough to access from here (downtown is just a fifteen minute walk away). Why would you want to stay anywhere else? We will definitely be back!
Lovely spot to stay
Great location for wandering around Old Montreal. Lots of great restaurants and bars in the area. The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped. Perfect spot for a romantic getaway. Our host was charming and provided us with terrific suggestions for eating and shopping. I would heartily recommend this place and would return again.
The Perfect Apartment for a Stay in Old Montreal
My wife and I absolutely loved our time staying at Chateau Dumas. The location, at the quieter end of Rue St. Paul East, was perfect for exploring the old town and port. We walked to great restaurants each evening.
The apartment is spacious and is tastefully decorated in keeping with the beautifully resorted historic building. Cherie is a gracious host who helped make our stay very comfortable. We defiinitely hope to return for another stay.
Best place to stay in Montreal!!
