Bolton Est Airbnb

The Bolton-Est house sits up high on the side of a mountain amongst the treetops and rock. Its incredibly steep terrain gives the house’s modern exterior a more sculptural appearance.

The unique design of the much wider upper level is cantilevered over the narrower lower level. This architectural gem uber cool design element gives the entire house a geometric silhouette against this natural setting.

Nestled against the granite rock and trees on the upper level of the property is a long modern picnic table perfect for al fresco dining. It’s positioned perfectly to watch the sun slowly fade behind Mount Orford.

Adjacent to the outdoor dining is the open fire pit. There is something so quintessentially Canadian to gather around a fire on those lazy summer evenings or autumn’s crisp cool days. Smores anyone?

High on the summer relaxation spectrum is the solitude of lounging in a hammock. Perched up high on the rock and suspended between two tall shade trees let the gentle swing and sway melt any stresses away. And, take in those views! 

Mountain Views from luxury property stay in Eastern Townships, Quebec, Canada

It is so serene to watch the fog and mist roll through the mountaintops. The only sounds you will hear are that of the wind through the trees, the many different bird songs, and the ‘hoo hoo hoo’ of the owls. Peaceful and tranquil are exactly what you will find here.

Sit and stay awhile. It will be hard to tear yourself away from this view. It’s the perfect spot to watch an early morning sunrise and a slow setting of the sun in the evening.

The Interior – Airbnb Bolton Est

Step inside and find an even more dramatic space.  Beyond the awe-inspiring views, the space offers some serious design goals. It’s a great mix of different styles and eras. Expertly, every detail, object, texture and piece of furniture has been perfectly chosen. Although the space is modern, it has a very relaxed, worn-in feel.

Horizontal strip windows in the living and dining spaces frame the wooded mountain range and valley so perfectly. The floor-to-ceiling wall of windows with a walkout looks directly onto Mount Orford. It is light and bright all day long, even on the darkest days.

When to Visit the Eastern Townships

Oh, how wonderful the Eastern Townships in Quebec are, with something for every season! For winter adventurers, it’s an absolute paradise with the highest peaks and expertly groomed trails that beckon ski and snowboard enthusiasts.

But when summer rolls around, the lakes come alive with all sorts of water activities, as well as unbeatable opportunities for hiking, biking, and golfing.

However, it’s the stunning fall foliage that really captured my heart – the region explodes into a fiery display of colours that truly takes your breath away. And what better way to enjoy the harvest season than by visiting the local wineries and savouring the flavours of their freshly pressed grapes? The Eastern Townships are truly a year-round delight!

And, no matter the season, Bolton Est House is the place to stay.
