Renting a cottage or house is an ideal way to take a break from your regular routine. Québec City is surrounded by nature, so you can enjoy the urban vibe and relax in the great outdoors, all on the same trip. Whether you want to spend time by the water or in the forest, with or without onsite activities, we’re got recommendations for rental cottages in the Québec City area

Waterfront Rental Cottages and Houses

Chalets Le Moulin de Saint-Laurent

Less than 25 minutes from Old Québec, the cottages at Chalets Le Moulin de Saint-Laurent on Île d’Orléans offer a fabulous view of the St. Lawrence River. The island is known for its microclimate and amazing terroir products, so go exploring and stock up! Perfect for foodies.

Au Chalet en Bois Rond

The luxurious log cabins at this huge four-season camp are all built beside one of the five lakes on the property or the Sainte-Anne River. There’s tons to do in every season (fishing, water sports, hiking, a sugar shack, snowmobiling, dogsledding, snowshoeing, fat biking, and more) and the amenities make life even easier and more enjoyable. To make the most of your stay, you can even relegate meal duties to the chef, who prepares a set menu for takeout and delivery daily.

Station touristique Duchesnay

Here, Lac Saint-Joseph serves as an outdoor playground for guests of the dozen Duchesnay cottages. The resort has tons of activities on offer, including hiking, treetop ropes courses, biking, water sports, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, an indoor pool with a sauna, and a games room.

Chalets Tourisma

These cozy, rustic cottages in Portneuf are tucked away in the forest, but super close to all the amenities. Some are lakeshore.

Chalets Avantages

Lac Sept-Îles is 45 minutes from Québec City, near the hiking and mountain biking trails in Vallée Bras-du-Nord Park. The three Chalets Avantage units are all on the shores of the lake.

Chalets Relax Charlevoix

These traditional cottages and log cabins are located between Québec City and Charlevoix. There’s a lake and plenty of summer and winter outdoor activities in the area.

Rental Cabins and Houses in Parks and Reserves

Jacques Cartier National Park

With their sweeping windows and minimalist designs, EXP and Echo cabins bring you closer to nature. The park also has traditional cabins and cabins for big groups so everyone can enjoy all the activities on offer in this impressive glacier valley.

Laurentides and Portneuf Wildlife Reserves

There are over a hundred cabins spread out across the Laurentides and Portneuf wildlife reserves. In the summer, cabin rentals include a barbecue, a kayak, and a dingy boat.


Rental Cabins and Houses near Ski Hills

Cabins and houses near ski hills are obviously very popular in the winter, but they’re also a great option for outdoor activities the rest of the year.

Mont-Sainte-Anne and Surrounding Area

There are plenty of cabins and houses to rent east of Québec City in the area around Mont Sainte-Anne and lots of activities in addition to downhill and cross-country skiing, like mountain and fat biking, hiking, snowshoeing, paragliding, via ferrata, canyoning, dogsledding, and more. It’s also home to major attractions such as Canyon Sainte-Anne and Sainte-Anne-de-Beaupré Shrine. In the fall, the Great Colour Adventure brings out the crowds over several weekends in September and October. Mont-Sainte-Anne is also near the Massif de Charlevoix ski hill.


The hilly area north of Québec City is particularly gorgeous in the fall. A stay in the Stoneham area puts you near Jacques Cartier National Park and Lac-Beauport, where you can try river rafting, observe wildlife, go mountain biking and hiking, spend time at a Nordic spa, and more!
