My family and I have stayed here twice, and intend to return. We spent 3 weeks here in the summer of 2012, and just returned from a 4-day visit for winter Carnaval. (Yes, Quebec really is a year-round party.) The house is perfect for all seasons: 3 bedrooms, a wonderful kitchen, a hot tub on the roof deck, and even a working player piano. There's a mud room area on the ground floor that we used for bicycles in the summer and skis and boots in the winter. It's private and quiet, but close to everything.
If you are looking for a workout, the house is at the foot of the Cap Blanc staircase to the Plains of Abraham. I counted 394 stairs. But don't worry - you can also walk a few blocks to Petit Champlain and take the funiculaire right into old Quebec.
As others have pointed out, it's really Claude that makes the place special. He provides great advice on restaurants, skiing, and other activities. His breakfasts are a feast for both the mouth and the eye. As he cooked, he helped us practice our French. At the same time, my wife and daughter were helping him practice Spanish. The French lessons even continued over Skype. Claude is a great host and a special person. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Quebec.
