I've always loved living somewhere with four distinct seasons. Yes, winter takes some getting used to in Quebec. But we are lucky to live in a province that is beautiful all year round.

With fall now upon us, it's time to start planning all those seasonal activities we love so much. You don't have to leave Montreal to experience it, just walking around the city's parks can be enough.
But what's more perfect and wholesome than a road trip to check out the best fall foliage Quebec has to offer?
We took a look at Airbnb for the top 20 chalets, condos, and homes you can rent to experience autumn. Just imagine being surrounded by trees that you can see from your windowed walls. Some are secluded, with only the roar of a (sometimes indoor and outdoor) fireplace to keep you company.
Quebec foliage can vary wildly depending on the area you travel to. Check out this map that shows you when and where it will be peak season in the province.
So make sure your phone is charged, as some of these places are so Instagrammable you won't be able to stop snapping photos.
Cabane Dans Les Arbes!Airbnb
What better way to see the turn of leaves than actually being in the trees. This cute cabin has an indoor fireplace and a private outdoor jacuzzi.
Luxurious, High-Vibration, Modern RetreatAirbnb
This 3600-square-foot home is all luxury and the perfect balance of modern and cozy. Even the sauna has a view of the forest.
Cabin Perched On Escarpment BankAirbnb
Windowed walls reveal spectacular views in this glamping Airbnb. You do need to be comfortable with walking 20 minutes to the location, but it will all be worth it once you get there.
The Bulle DoubleAirbnb
This countryside retreat is a magical getaway. Spend the night in your bubble bedroom staring up at the trees.
Magnifique Chalet D'Architecte à Flanc De Falaise!Airbnb
With so many cozy escapes on this list, this one grabbed our attention with its hyper-modern, cliffside location. There are only spots left in November, so take advantage of this architectural home in the wilderness.
Magog Waterfront – Cozy and Comfortable StudioAirbnb
Located near downtown Magog, this condo has the perfect view of the water and mountains to experience nature in every way.
If it's not too cold, this modern chalet has an outdoor shower (but don't worry they also have an indoor shower) with views of the lake.
La Zenitude Mont Ste-AnneAirbnb
You will find the best view of the mountain at this pristine chalet. You can curl up in front of the outdoor fireplace or enjoy one of the many outdoor activities.
Chalet Le Sous-BoisAirbnb
You can stay in your own private chalet on the steps of the Saguenay Fjord. This is a breathtaking area that you won't even have to leave the comfort of the rental to experience.
Charming Log Cabin In The CountrysideAirbnb
There is access to a firepit outside, where you can stare up at the skies once you're finished taking in the vibrant colors of the leaves.
With its beamed ceilings, this chalet pays homage to its water and forest location. There are many outdoor activities within driving and walking distance from this escape.
Wood Cabin, Mont Ste-AnneAirbnb
A picture-perfect cabin set only a four-minute bike ride from one of the most beautiful cabins in Quebec, Mont Sainte-Anne.
Vue Imprenable Sur Le FleuveAirbnb
Surrounded by trees and facing the water, this two-bedroom chalet is perfect to watch the leaves change and boats pass by.
Pine Home – Ancestrale Au Coeur De La NatureAirbnb
This is another place to get away from it all. Located in the heart of nature, it's only a 20-minute drive from the U.S. border. And there's a wood-burning stove!
Chalet On The MountainAirbnb
If you really want to see fall foliage, this gorgeous one-bedroom will do it. There is a 40-kilometre hiking trail right at your doorstep.
Located in a remote area in the middle of the woods, this is the perfect escape if you want solitude and minimalism.
Refuge Récréatif Dans La ForêtAirbnb
It may be lacking in amenities (there is an outhouse) but it makes up for it in its idyllic setting.
Maison Bord de L'eauAirbnb
This chalet is just an hour's drive from Montreal. It was created so that residents and visitors could appreciate the sunrises and the beauty of the landscape.
Laurentian Lake House Off The GridAirbnb
There is too much to write about for this secluded cabin only accessible by boat (which you can rent for $10 a day). It's off the grid, in the heart of a forest and overlooks a serene lake.
Refuge In The ForestAirbnb
This place may be one of the cheapest on our list, but what it lacks in luxury it makes up for in quaint. Read, take long walks in the forest or just listen to the birds.
Quebec has so many choices to enjoy autumn, the only problem will be picking just one.
