  • Accommodation


    We live in the forest,our property is bigenerational, so we share the house with my parents, and we have a huge flower/veggie garden, a dog and chikens. From our backyard you can access to many hiking trails and a private lake. The Gatineau park, is very close by, where you can enjoy, hiking, biking, camping and swimming. living in the forest means, no neighbors, but also bugs and musquitos, and not the fastest internet. On the other hand, we have a screen porch to relax away from the bugs,and we spend less time on our phones!
    we will provide you a furnished room and meals, we are gluten-free and lactose free. You will have access to a car so you must have a valid driving license, distances are long between neigbors, and you need a car to get around, and to help me with my son.
