----- MEET THE HOUSE! -----
Lamps and weird knick-knacks dwelling with antique furniture and cosy sofas, torn tapestries, crooked hardwood floors and squeaking steps and doors makes all the charm and the warmth of the place. Built in the end of 19th century, The house has been preserved from aging, but in respect of its past, which makes the place very "storytelling"...
Amongst many vocations this place had, we keep artefacts from a past Chinese food restaurant and a retro women's clothes shop. Other non house-related artefacts fill the house. Discover all this while coming to our place in Montreal.

LEAVE NO TRACE!
Please do like at home. But please, this home is shared by other people all of the time. It doesn't take a lot of efforts to have a clean, tidy, calm house, if everybody collaborates...
So "leave no trace" means... leave no trace!
If you cook, leave no trace.
If you take off your boots... don't leave them in the way.
And if you walk with it on the floor during the Winter : leave no trace!
Same thing if you're having the shower of your life : leave no trace!
When you leave... empty your mini-fridge or give the food to other roommates!
And if it is late, around 10-11PM, in the lobby... sound is considered as a trace.
Please be quiet and kind to other roommates. And please tell the other roommates they should remain quiet if they are feeling too much social around our marvelous bar! ;)
As you can see, there are uncountable ways of leaving no trace. There are more and more and more... but we can't write them all here. That wouldn't sound fun and would be useless. Why? Because leave no trace is a logic way of living. It is a way to respect the the life space of others, a way to share without hurts. And we think, with experience, that you truly understand this. Airbnb users are really respectful people, and if we comparate to other guests we had, you're the best so far!
So as "Leave no trace" is the only rule of the place : Please leave no trace :)
And everything will be fun and fine!
Otherwise... you are free to do whatever you like inside the house... except smoking, playing with bare fire, and running naked (although it could be tolerated)...
See ya in da house :)

Great place to stay! I arrived a little early but Noémie was quick to welcome me as I aimlessly stood outside the place. The other tenants were respectful and quiet; I had some great conversation with a couple of them when I wasn't out in the city.
The room itself was more than perfect - it was warm, quiet, and comfortable. For the price, you really can't go wrong. Definitely worth checking out!
Had a good stay at the Baraque, fun place to hang out. We pretty much just crashed there at night after visiting Montreal. Everyone was friendly and the room we had "La Petite Loge" was very quiet at night.
Not for people who expect going to a hotel, this is an 'experience' for those who can adapt and appreciate the bare minimum, but the warmth of the occupants make up for any cosmetic shortfall that comes with an old house.
Location was great, the resto-bar by the door is always full of friendly people too.
Internet wi-fi was really good too.
Bon rapport qualité/prix, avec un très bel emplacement et une maison avec beaucoup de cachet.
Ce qui a légèrement gâché notre expérience est la chaleur constante dans la chambre en plein été et une prestation un peu sommaire.
Dommage également que sur les 5 nuits passées, je n'ai pas rencontré une seule fois la propriétaire des lieux.
It was more or less what I expected. It was in a great area and the rent was cheap. I just wished it was renovated a bit more. The floor, doors, and overall structure are all very old. Everything was slanted (the stairs, room, hallway). I prefer a better kept place to stay at.
Again, it was cheap and a good area, so if that's what you are looking for, this place is great.
