Overview

About the property

Our Nature's Haven is an attractive eco-compact house sitting on a lush property in Ste-Brigitte-de-Laval, a sought-after small town just minutes from the limits of beautiful Québec City.

THE NATURAL SITE

This contemporary house boasts views as well as direct access to a free flowing river with crystal clear water where you can swim or fly fish for small native brook trout or simply enjoy family time, right at your doorstep.

You'll enjoy your private nature footpath and stream, landscaped lawn and river views. Although secluded and private, the home is not isolated and sits within an 8-minute ride to town for your daily needs and shopping (supermarket, drugstore, gas station, wine & liquor store, family restaurant, etc.).

THE HOUSE

The house’s striking modern design in such a serene setting offers modern amenities and wonderful indoor-outdoor flow. The three bedrooms on the second floor offer sleeping arrangements for a maximum of 6 persons (4 adults and 2 children_under 12 years old) and give access to a bathroom equipped with in-floor heating. The bathroom on the first floor features a walk-in ceramic shower and also in-floor heating. Airy and inviting, the kitchen has modern amenities.

Step out onto the screened porch only feet from the river or lounge on the upper deck overlooking the property.

THE ACTIVITIES

There are plenty of attractions and activities nearby to keep you busy for days. Just minutes away sits Québec, one of the most beautiful cities in the world named as one of the World Heritage sites from UNESCO. There are museums, the Château Frontenac, gourmet restaurants galore and a thriving cultural scene.

As a general travel footnote, the New York Times has named Canada its top travel destination for 2017. Canada was also named Best Travel Destination In 2017 by Lonely Planet.

Among a score of activities this summer in the city, the Festival d'Été de Québec (300 shows, 10 stages, 11 days of music) will be held from July 6th to the 16th.

The Tall Ships Festival will take place July 18th to the 23rd and is the crown jewel of the Rendez-vous 2017 Tall Ships Regatta with the arrival of the international fleet into Québec City up the St Lawrence River, a sight to see.

Right here in Sainte-Brigitte sits a beautiful 18-hole golf course The Alpine Golf and Country club. Another golf course, The Mont-Tourbillon, in Lac Beauport is 15 minutes away. Also, Sainte-Brigitte offers several playgrounds with swings and outdoor amenities for kids. Local hiking trails are also nearby.

The Indian Reserve Huron Wendat as well as the Montmorency Falls, Ile d’Orléans and Parc National de la Jacques-Cartier are close and are certainly worth a visit.

Nature's Haven is seasonally available from June to September every year.

Beautiful, peaceful, serene, everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Our family very much enjoyed our stay. The property is beautiful, peaceful and private.

The cottage was well stocked with everything we needed (except a teapot). The hosts very friendly and responsive. Would definitely recommend.

WONDERFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5

Murielle and Jean met us at the house with a warm welcome. They walked us around the outside and inside of the property to get us familiar with everything,

This home is beautiful, clean, comfortable and well stocked. The screened in porch is a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee, read a book or just relax.

The yard is beautiful and well maintained. We enjoyed our nights outside under the stars and around the fire pit. Falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the river was wonderful.

Quebec city is an easy ride from the house about 30 min. There is also nice golf course about 10 min down the road from the house.

We would highly recommend staying at Natures Haven!!!

Cute house on a beautiful river

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Nature's Haven. The house sits on a large property on a peaceful river. We spent most of our time in Quebec City which is a 40 minute drive from the house. Already miss the soothing sounds of the river and cool weather.

this was a beautiful house in St. Brigitte du Val

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week in Nature's Haven. The house is gorgeous with great attention to details that made it delightful. Loved looking out over the river from the dining room table. The kitchen was well equipped and we cooked meals there every night. We didn't even mind the day we had to spend inside due to the rain. There are hiking trails in the area, but the Jacques Cartier Park (about 50 min. away) should not be missed. It is about 30-40 min. to Quebec City, where we also spent a day. Our hosts were very attentive and obviously very proud of their house, and we felt lucky that they shared it with us. (Family of 4--two old adults over 75 and their daughter and son-in-law.)

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here on our summer vacation with our two kids (ages 6 & 9). We had a great stay. Murielle and Jean welcomed us in as if we were family. They took time to show us around the property and house. Everything was as shown in the pictures, maybe even better. The pride and care they take in their house was obvious. The kitchen was well stocked with excellent utensils and cookery. The beds were comfortable and the sound of the stream at night was wonderful. We enjoyed spending time around the property, fishing in the brook and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. We would highly recommend the house to anyone looking for a place in the country outside Quebec City.

Peaceful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Murielle and Jean were wonderful. They met us and showed us around and made sure everything was clean and ready. They also installed a guard on the top bunk just for our daughter because I was worried about her falling out of bed, which was incredibly thoughtful. The house is beautiful, located right next to a river that you can hear in every room. Every window has a different and spectacular view. There is excellent hiking nearby and several parks for children to play. It was an excellent trip!
