We live on the West Island in Beaconsfield about 30 minutes from downtown Montreal by bus, train or car. We have no animals and our 2 storey house has 2 bedrooms, we're about 5 minurtes walk to the lake (frozen in mid-winter) and will be away for Jan, Feb and March.
We have Wi-Fi and the TV is by antenna not cable. We get about channels. The driveway is cleared of snow, but the walkway (about 20 feet long) will need shovelling if necessary.
