Mary and Jon's home was a perfect place to escape from the busy-ness of Montreal. The location was only a few blocks from the water (ice, actually). We did some hiking along the trails and out onto the ice.
Having a well-set-up house waiting for us at the end of the day with a wood-burning fireplace was fantastic! The house had a "cabin" feel to it, with a kitchen that invited and encouraged everyone to be there (we loved the big table!). We even found a guitar and did some singing.
As soon as we booked the house, Mary got back to us with good instructions on getting the key and how things would be set up inside.
Although we don't frequent the area (our daughter just finished up at Concordia University), I'd recommend the house to anyone who was looking to stay in the area.
Our little holiday was centered around the lovely fireplace. The kitchen was in working order, and was big, bright, and spacious. The wall in the second room was undergoing renos, (which was mentioned after we had book the place) and there was a chemical smell in that room, so we decided to move the mattress into the living room. It wasn't a bad solution to sleep near the fire, but that room was not in "working order". Other than that, the house was darling, and a cozy retreat from Montreal. Mary and Jon were kind to accomodate us with late notice.
I would love to return in the summertime.
Perfect, just perfect! The pictures don't do justice to this gem. It was a pleasure dealing with Mary and Jon, and it was a pleasure to stay in their lovely home.
This is a great place if you want to hang out in Montreal without having to stay in a city. The area around the house is beautiful and the house itself is nice and cozy without being cramped. Wish we could have stayed longer!
We spend 3 nights in the house at the beginning of October. Everything was as described, even better. The house was warm and very well equipped. We will definitely recommend this place!
Charming indeed! A lovely experience.
We had a perfect weekend at Mary and Jon's place in Oka. The house was clean and warm, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen was well-equipped. We only had two days, but we managed to canoe to the beach, enjoy s'mores around the fire, and hike through the woods. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.
Mary and Jon have a beautiful house in Oka. We had a great time there. The house was very well kept. We found the kitchen and family area are great places to hang out to read and play games on rainy days. In the evenings we enjoyed sitting by the fire outside and roasting marshmallows.
I would not hesitate recommending this house and we are talking about visiting again next year.
Mary & Jon's house in Oka is lovely. We had a really nice stay. The house was charming, clean and comfortable.
Everything was as advertised. The house is super cute and cozy. Mary was quick to reply to my emails (even with the crazy time difference!)
I loved how easy it was to rent this place (last minute!) and how great it was once we arrived. I will be telling everyone we know, if they're looking for a getaway close to Montreal.
Thanks Mary and Jon!
Quelle belle famille, c'était un plaisir de les avoir chez nous, merci d'avoir choisi notre chambre, super expérience de partage. A très bientôt tous les trois, et gros bisous a Darius, Rosie et Mat
It was a great pleasure to host Jon and his friends. He was great guest´s!! Nice, friendly, welcoming, easygoing and attentive. And he left the house impeccable!! I definitely recommend Jon to anyone and it would be a pleasure to host him again. Thanks Jon.
They were just great !
Mary, Jon and their little son Darius were great guests - it was nice and easy to communicate with them and they left my apartment perfectly clean. They are welcome every time - thanky you, Mary and Jon!
Mary, her Boyfriend and their dog ChuChu stayed in my apartment for 3 nights, and they were a delight. No trace of anything, plenty of information and arrived in the timeframe they had announced despite having to navigate a new and New years hit City. I can recommend hosting Mary and her dog to anyone, also those of us who might not be to fond of pets or have a smallish apartment.
Mary was a perfect guest. We had a good communication before her visit during and after her visit, and she left everything in perfect order. I can highly recommend to have Mary as a guest.
