Overview

About the property

Our Nature's Haven is an attractive eco-compact house sitting on a lush property in Ste-Brigitte-de-Laval within minutes 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 experience the sense of peace that one feels around water.

Yours to enjoy are a very 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 City, 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.

Among a score of activities for the summer 2019 in Quebec City is the Festival d'Été de Québec, one of Canada's biggest outdoor musical event which will be held from July 4th to the 14th 2019.

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

5 days in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Nature’s Haven is both beautiful and spotlessly clean. While the house is fantastic, it is the property and location that makes Nature’s Haven a stand out. Have I said “Wow” yet?

The house sits above a roaring stream with breathtaking scenery all around. The grounds are meticulously kept with seating areas, paths and a fire pit. We were a party of 4 and enjoyed all of the above.

We spent two days in Quebec City, and two days in Jacques-Cartier Park, each about a 40 minutes drive. Honestly, we Looked forward to our return to our own park.

Murielle and Jean were perfect hosts. They provided us with all the information we needed to make our stay enjoyable.

The photos do not do justice to this property!

If you are looking at this property, just rent it! Look no further.

Site enchanteur – Hôtes exceptionnels

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons eu la chance de séjourner 7 nuits dans ce gîte magnifique, très propre et stratégiquement situé. La jolie rivière qui borde la propriété fait tout le charme de l’endroit. Non seulement on peut s’y baigner, mais on y pêche égalent la truite!

L’accueil de nos hôtes, qui n’ont clairement rien ménagé pour rendre cette demeure des plus confortables, a été très chaleureux.

Ce petit coin de paradis au cœur de la forêt, parfait pour une famille de 4 personnes, vaut le détour! Bien que situé en pleine nature, il est facile de se ravitailler et la Ville de Québec est aisément accessible.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and property! The house has a dappled (private) trail leading down to the river. It was unusually hot for Quebec when we were there: 90's, but we would cool off with dips in the water.

It is an easy drive to Quebec City for the sights. There is also a supermarket right in St.-Brigitte to pick up fresh food for meals. The kitchen was well-stock with supplies to make relaxing meals at the house after an all day tour around Quebec. All-in-all, had a wonderful stay and would definitely come back!

Magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

This property is even more amazing than can be captured in pictures. The house is wonderful with many windows, and has an upper sun deck and a screened porch. In addition, the private trail leads to a secluded spot by the river, perfect for happy hour. We loved sleeping with the windows open, being lulled to sleep by the sound of the river below. To top it off, the hosts are warm and gracious. Couldn't be better!

Peaceful Nature Respite

  • 5 of 5

Here is what you really need to know:

The owners are absolutely amazing.

The property is beautiful, safe, and includes water access, private nature trail, indoor/outdoor sitting areas, and all the worldly amenities of modern society wrapped up in a serene shell. Nearby there is access to grocery, gas, hiking, and a short drive from charming Old Quebec. Our experience was magnificent and we highly recommend staying here.

Don't miss this impeccable home set amidst native woodlands on a wild stream

  • 5 of 5

Nature's Haven affords visitors the experience of serenity amidst architectural and natural beauty.

The home is:

+ Conveniently located: 40 minutes from Quebec City; 45 minutes from Jacques-Cartier NP; 9 minutes from fresh baguettes; and 19 minutes from a lovely local trail.

+ Beautifully designed: The floor plan creates numerous indoor and porch spaces for rest and enjoyment.

+ Thoughtfully equipped: This house offers comfortable beds and pillows, cozy chairs, inviting tables for dining or playing games, and a kitchen with every convenience we looked for. It has the best cooking knives of any place we've stayed.

+ Meticulously maintained: Clean, clean, clean, and also easy to keep tidy as a guest.

All that said, our favorite aspects of Nature's Haven involved its setting. The home's location amidst native woodlands creates its distinction:

+ The lawn area is large enough to provide a sense of openness and space and let the sun shine in.

+ The woodland trail beckons nature lovers of any age to breathe in balsam-scented air and exhale worries.

+ The stream is the exclamation mark of Nature's Haven. Its crystal-clear waters welcome you to dunk in, cool your feet or fish (licenses available for purchase in St. Brigitte). Its musicality sings you to sleep at night.

Hosts Murielle and Jean are conscientious, attentive, friendly and helpful.
