It's getting to be that special time of year when the snow is falling, the holidays are approaching, and all you want to do is snuggle up with a cup of hot cocoa to watch classic, cheesy Christmas movies, like 'The Holiday.' If you're like Cameron Diaz' character, and you're craving a change of scenery, this quaint cottage in Gore, Quebec could be just what you need for a little holiday of your own.
Gore is only about a one-hour drive from central Montreal but, situated on the Laurentian Plateau, it offers visitors access to forests, waterways, wetlands, fauna, flora, parks and trails.
The chalet, a log cabin, has three bedrooms with four beds and one bathroom.Airbnb
The kitchen is fully equipped — and there's even an espresso machine for your morning joe but you should bring the right grind with you to use it.Airbnb
There are TWO slow combustion fireplaces. Wood is available onsite — your first bag is free and it's $8 per bag after that.Airbnb
If you want to get really festive, there's even a piano so practice your favourite holiday tunes and carols before you go!Airbnb
If you're anything like Cameron Diaz' character, you'll be drinking lots of wine as the fire blazes, but you probably won't fall in love with anyone's brother because, you know, COVID-19 — all the more reason to fall in love with the cottage itself!
