Nestled in the woods and perched on the side of a small mountain with a (winter) view of a little lake, this spacious, modern house is a perfect refuge of tranquility. I live here with two roommates, my two kids (3 days per week), and my gentle, sweet dog Sofie; your room is the last of the 4 bedrooms. It has a double bed and an air mattress with linens. There are two shared bathrooms for all of us. You have full access to the common spaces (kitchen, sofa, dining room, etc.) It's perfect for a weekend getaway in the country, in easy striking distance of Sherbrooke, Orford, and Magog, with lots of great outdoors activities nearby. Montreal is a 90-minute drive. In summer, you'll probably want to breakfast on the veranda with a nice view of the garden and the woods. Feel free to take an apple or two from the tree in fall. In the winter, you may want to make a fire in our fireplace and curl up with a book or board game. I'm a professor at the local university and have a busy schedule, though I do my best to be there to greet you in person and take time with guests whenever possible. I love giving advice on how to enjoy the region. Be prepared for the kids to be up and making noise early in the morning the days they are here (usually Sun - Wed morning). Breakfast is what I eat with the kids: plain yogurt with honey and homemade trail mix, fresh fruit, toasted artisan bread with butter/jam, and tea/coffee. Most ingredients are fresh, local, and high-quality. If you come in winter, be aware that our driveway is long (~100m) and steep. While I do my best to keep it plowed and accessible, I have a full-time job. There's always some risk that you'd have to park at the bottom until I can get it plowed, if you arrive during a snowstorm. (Translation: if you can't walk that distance with your luggage, don't have AWD, and have very precise needs in terms of arrival/departure times, don't book in winter. But no problem for most people - we'll find ways to make it work :). ) Pets and children generally welcome, but contact me first to verify!
