We live about 30 minutes north-west of Montreal. Our house is located a 5 minute walk from the train that takes you right downtown Montreal and all our fun festivals and great sights. We are also about 45 minutes from the Laurentian Mountains and 20 minutes from Oka provincial Park. There is a boat launch right down the street as we are close to the Mille Iles River and Lac des Deux Montagnes.
If you smoke, please don't leave your butts on the ground. If you have a dog, please pick up after them and keep him/her on leash because we have a miniature poodle who thinks he's a pitbull and will not hesitate to attack a dog who could eat him as an hors d'oeuvre.
On the street (no overnight parking between November 1st and April 15th)
Montreal Jazz festival at the end of June, Mont Tremblant Blues fest at the beginning of July, Montreal comedy fest mid-July, Montreal comic-con in July.
