The Space

Imagine watching the sun rising over the valley below, ushering in the morning light show over the spectacular fall colours of the forest. A nature sanctuary, minutes away from five different ski hills and a short walk to lac Guindon. If that is not enough delight in the unique architecture, while cozying up by our two fire places, or if night life is your thing, enjoy the cafes and restaurants of Saint Sauveur des Monts only minutes away, or maybe you would rather have your own candle light dinner with friends and family, while enjoying the city lights at night out of the large cathedral windows. Star gazing at night or yoga in the morning on the large terrace at top, are ideal ways to end your day or start anew. An easy 45 minute drive from Montreal, you may find it easy get to this paradise, but hard to let go.

  • The home is located in a beautiful and quiet spot, and Farzad is incredibly prompt in answering any messages and addressing concerns you may have.

    Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is spacious and clean, and was a nice get-a-way spot for our group of 13. So that's the good news.

    There isn't any real bad news, but things people should know before placing a deposit: The house has lovely large windows, but these also can make the rooms very hot as lots of sun shines in. In the morning the outside temperature would be cool (60's), while the inside room temperature was 82 degrees F. This was in late May. I could see it become very warm during the summer months when AC would be most appreciated (the lack of AC is infact listed though). All the sunlight (and the lack of curtains in the house) would also make it so everyone in the house would wake up without fail at 6am. If your entire groups likes rising with the sun that is fine but we would have liked that option to be up to us. Finally, sounds travels VERY easily through the house. The open space concept of the house is beautiful but also makes it so that sound from the first floor can easily be heard on all floors. This made it difficult for some people to fall asleep, as well as made some wake up when they wanted to be sleeping. Our party of 13 was fairly in sync but this still proved to be an issue.

    In summary, temperature, wake-up, sound. If those do not bother you, the house is lovely and in a great spot.

  • The house is spacious, well equipped and in a beautiful location. Farzad was very helpful and accommodating. You should know that cats normally live in the house (not during your visit of course), in case allergies are an issue.

  • We had a great stay at Farzad's house. It was perfect in terms of size and proximity to the lake for our large family group ranging in age from 5 to 75. The area has a lot to offer as a summer destination. Farzad was prompt in responding to any concerns. I highly recommend his place.

  • Went with a group of friends to celebrate a few of our birthdays and had an amazing time. The place was beautiful, clean and the room at the top had an amazing view. The host was very accommodating and added special gestures to ensure you had a good time.

  • This place has a gorgeous architecture and tasteful decor,with a breathtaking view. There is also plenty of place for large groups.

    Farzad,the owner,was very helpful during the whole booking process(as I was new to airbnb when I made the reservation),giving me the information I needed in a timely manner. Also, he made sure that we were all set before we got to the house, providing plenty of details about the place, as he was away on vacation when we got to the house. My friends and I had an amazing time there!!!

    I highly recommend it to anybody looking for a gorgeous and peaceful getaway.

  • We rented Farzad's place for 4 days and it was our first time using Airbnb, so we did not know what to expect. During our stay (and even before), Farzad was more than helpful, and easily available.The house is absolutely gorgeous, the view at night is incredible and we were 5-10 minutes away from any activities we wanted to do. The house is very well taken care of and fully available. Our Saturday night supper made some people jealous with the scenery as well as the food. All in all it was a great experience at a great place with a great owner.

    thanks Farzad

  • Great location and an amazing view !

    February 2013
  • Great location , not too far from montreal and between 10-15 minutes from many mountains / spas (tubing , ski , snowboard).
    Definitely a place with tons of space and great potential for medium to large groups. Great view and architecture.
    Farzad was nice enough to meet with us beforehand to walk us through the chalet and give us some additional details.
    Highly recommended.

  • We (my family and some friends) rented the cottage for our Christmas vacation and we also spent the New Year ’s Eve there. That was one of our best family vacations ever, the memories of which are so precious and unforgettable. The cottage is beautifully designed, incredibly cozy, well maintained and elaborate to perfection. The sweet Christmas decorations, the beautiful fireplaces, the piano in the living room, the leather furniture create undeniable comfort and class, as well as unique atmosphere. The views from the large windows are stunning and breathtaking. There was nothing that we missed during our stay there starting with the kitchen and bedroom necessities and ending with the entertaining facilities (there is a large pool table in the basement where our teenage kids had a lot of fun). The cottage was clean, well equipped and arranged perfectly upon our arrival. The host was very thoughtful and concerned so I would like to thank him very much for making our stay so pleasant and comfortable.
    Simply amazing…Definitely recommend and will definitely go back for another great vacation.
