Back to basics by the mountain

  • 3 bedrooms
  • 1 bathroom


Come by the mountain and enjoy this simple cottage-like house. On the 1 acre land, have fun building a fort, making a snowman, looking at the birds and watching the sunsets

Then come back inside and enjoy the fireplace. The full kitchen allows you to cook together, and the open space allows you to spend time with your friends and family. The cottage feel of the house will have you forget everything about the city!

For those who appreciate simple things in life, for the simple joy of being together with a lot of people you love, this is the house for you :)

NOTE: We can accommodate groups larger than 8 people, send me a message for more information!
Au pied du Parc de la Gatineau, à Chelsea dans le secteur Hollow Glen
La campagne à seulement 20 minutes de la ville
Big kitchen with oven, mini-oven, blender, small rice cooker, bodum, small slow cooker and cooking pots and pans. Note: No microwave, no dishwasher
In the house is a table that can sit 6, with a bench that can sit 3, one normal chair and 2 feet rests that we use as chairs. There is also a small coffee table with two chairs that have no legs (on the floor). There are only a few plates, bowls and cups. I recommend bringing your own plates, cups and bowls. There are no wine glasses: we use mason jars as classes. Bring your own if you want them
Note: there are cushions and chairs on the floor, but there is no sofa
Washer and dryer available downstairs: bring your own soap. Must keep an eye on dryer as timer is broken and must be manually stopped
For the shower: bring your own biodegradable soap and towels. Bring your own toilet paper
It is in the country, so:
- We have hard water: water can smell and taste like minerals, toilet and bathtub are stained by rust;
- We have a septic tank: put nothing but toilet paper in the toilet, and bring biodegradable shampoo and soap;
- A pump bringing the water from the well to the house and some people may find it noisy

There is a fire place, bring your own wood
If you are taking small children with you: we recommend that you bring a baby safety gate to block access to the stairs
Note: only adults should go in the basement: there are electrical wires, tools and a sump pump that could be dangerous to children
NOTE: No smoking in the house. You will be charged a fine for smoking in the house. Only toilet paper and human waste in the toilet. You will be charged a fine for putting anything that is not toilet paper in the toilet (cigarette butts, tampons, pads, plastic, etc. ) and if it clogs the system you will have to pay for reparation (that can be a few hundred if not a few thousands of dollars, so please don't do it)
