“Wonderful Place to Spend a Vacation”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had the good fortune of staying at "la Maison du Jardinier" in August of 2014. Having visited Quebec City on several past occasions, we were looking for something a little different..... a private, quiet and relaxing setting; yet a place that offered close and convenient access to downtown Quebec.

"La Maison du Jardinier" far exceeded our expectations. It is a very clean and spacious stand-alone residence situated on the beautiful grounds of a family-owned vegetable farm; located in the quaint village of Saint Laurent on the "Ile d'Orleans" (Orleans Island). The island, which is about 25 miles in length by 5 miles in width, is located 20 minutes east of downtown Quebec and is easily accessible from the mainland by a bridge. The home itself is located on elevated land set back about a ½ mile off the road. This setting provides spectacular views of the Saint Lawrence River and the distant farms and rolling hills south of the river. The house is fully equipped with all the conveniences of home; including satellite television, an outdoor gas grill, linens, eating and cooking utensils, Wi-Fi service, etc.

"La Maison du Jardinier" offers an ambiance that many conventional hotels cannot replicate. There are wonderful opportunities to relax, breathe fresh air, meet some of the locals and leisurely explore many of the island's ancestral homes, farms, small shops and churches; many of which date back over 300 years. There are unique wineries, bakeries, vegetable and berry farms and restaurants that range from casual to world class. The perimeter of the island is relatively flat which makes it the perfect place for bicycle riding and observing up close the very interesting and beautiful landscaping and French architectural vernacular that seems prominent throughout the island. More importantly, "la Maison du Jardinier" offers the opportunity to reconnect with family by doing simple things; like sitting down to a nice family meal or toasting marshmallows over an open fire in the evening. I fondly recall sitting on the porch with my daughter, looking up and seeing what seemed like a million stars in the nighttime sky.

We very much enjoyed our stay and, frankly, would not take the time to write these comments if I did not feel the accommodations enhanced the overall quality of our vacation. In closing, I thank our hosts for their wonderful hospitality and highly recommend "la Maison du Jardinier" as a serious option for others to consider.
