My partner and I had a great stay here in the loft that mixes the old and the new in an artful manner. Fun location to explore Knowlton from. Would recommend.
Wow, where to start.
This was the most amazing place ever. I could not recommend Joel's property enough. It was absolutely spectacular. Very clean, very organized yet very lived in and comfortable. Be sure to walk down the road and find the alpaca farm to say hello to the yaks and donkeys. We very much enjoyed the trapeze and the zero gravity yoga things hanging from the ceiling in the main room. This is the second time I have rented a property from Joel and he has been very easy to deal with each time. There is a helpful little book with all kinds of instructions inside including how to work the fireplace downstairs, wifi password etc.
The paintings and the sculptures and antique furniture/lamps/light fixtures is why this is where you want to have your escape. The place is like suspended reality; an absolute dreamworld. We felt like we were living in an Enya video. It was as if we were going to turn the corner and Sting would be doing yoga on the floor. Very fitting that a converted church could remain such a spiritual place.
After having spent an entire weekend there, we were still discovering details and new nooks and crannies. This place comes highly recommended, 11/10 stars. Would very much love to come back and check this place out in the summer as the gardens look absolutely stunning.
Anything you could want or thought you potentially forgot, Joel had provided. He is truly an airbnb wizard. He has this whole thing completely figured out, which may come naturally after having hosted so many people, so many happy guests. The sheer authenticity of everything in the house constantly reminds the visitor that he or she is staying somewhere truly special as the property is completely void of any cheap, ikea-esque stuff. Everything seems priceless, though simultaneously possesses the ability to put you entirely at ease.
The master bedroom is total luxury. The bed like sleeping on an ultra-king-size cloud with beautiful light coming in in the morning. The en-suite bathroom is extremely convenient and the catwalk access to other bedrooms makes for magical shenanigans in the morning. The main-room stereo is also excellent and completely fills the church with beautiful music should you choose it to be this way. The massive kitchen was an amateur cook's dream and the electrical heating option makes for a warm church all day long, though the place is wonderfully sunlit with beams shooting in the huge church windows all day long.
Stay here if you get the chance. For young or old, this place is truly magic!
Very nice loft. In a nice village Knowlton, Quebec. Great access to skiing in the Eastern Townships and Vermont.
This was not my best Airbnb experience...
My girlfriend and I selected this place because there were many good reviews, and the place looked charming.
Our problem was that our host Joel and the person who was supposed to take care of our stay, Verana, were both not reachable the night of our arrival. So we had no way of knowing which apartment it was. Now I got a phone call the day before but no message and no info whatsoever (so I have no way to know who is calling me). We still decide to go there because the house rules mention a friendly concierge. Unfortunately, so sign of any concierge and the neighbours around were not from here. So ultimately we randomly knock on a door, disturb a friendly neighbour and he mentions the proper apartment number. If it was not for this person we would have been out of options that night. We even had to call Airbnb in the mean time.
Yet, Verana decides to show up 24 hours later, lying about the fact that she did not have my proper number although she successfully called me two days before and my phone number is on my Airbnb profile. She did not send any message, was not reachable the night of our arrival and never sent any information about our stay. Definitely not professional at all.
Still 3 stars because the loft was nice and clean and the village was very cute. We'll go there in spring for sure, but not in this loft.
Incredible house with an absolutely unique feel. Great communication with host and a lovely, peaceful week-end in a house we could only dream of owning one day. You have to try it for yourself, well worth the experience!
This place had everything we could possibly need/want, and much more! We had perhaps the greatest weekend of our lives -- the most magical combination of fun, relaxation, and joy. Thank you for opening your wonderful home up for others to experience.
Joel's loft was perfect for our Valentine's day getaway, without breaking the bank. We enjoyed the space, very functional and nicely decorated. My only complaints would be the lack of wifi and the bed wasn't to my taste, a bit too hard. We would stay again if we're in the area!
Maison très originale, fascinante à découvrir, située dans dans bel environnement, typique des Cantons de l'Est.
Un décor inspiré et inspirant qui témoigne de la grande créativité de son hôte et de ses voyages à l'étranger.
De beaux espaces à partager mais également plusieurs chambres, toutes confortables et agréables. ***** bien méritées.
Joel and Verena were very prompt in calling and providing info prior to our arrival. What a wonderful location for our annual family winter weekend together. Snowshoeing in the woods was idyllic with plenty of fresh snow. Even as we were leaving, we were still noticing decor that we had missed in our 2 days there - really interesting and eclectic. Great find!
Joel was a very friendly and perfect guest, it would be a pleasure to have his visit again ! Come back whenever you want !
We are very gratefull for having Joel and his beautiful children at the house. Excelent human being with a big heart, respect and calm.
Thanks and we hope to see you again!!
Pleasant, easy to communicate with
Joel is a well experienced AirB&B user, both as guest and host. As a guest is a joy, easy going, friendly and good fun. I'll recommend him any time and I look fwd to stay at one of his properties soon.
Thanks Joel, mi casa es tu casa!
Joel's house is a mesmerising space and he is a wonderful host . Communication was excellent and the place was spot on . Great location in a bucolic scene with beautiful landscapes and great walks in all directions . We spent a wonderful week in his countryside church , the space is full of wonderful and enjoyable details . It's a big house and being a group of five we were able to enjoy the space individually . We're looking forward to visit soon and will recommend the house to anyone looking for a relaxed beautiful time . Merci Joel !
