You can find out!

All you have to do is get a bunch of friends together and pick your mansion, through Airbnb. For anywhere between $1000 to $2500 a night, you too can live like a millionaire, at a fraction of the cost.

Here are some sweet mansions not too far away, so you can start dreaming…and start thinking of the friends you would like to invite.

Manoir Maplewood


Sir John William Hopkins was an architect who practiced in Montreal for nearly fifty years. He lived from 1825 to 1905 and designed many fine homes in Quebec. One of them is this gem, Manoir Maplewood, situated in the Eastern Townships, less than an hour from Montreal.


Built in 1864, in the Victorian style, the Manoir beckons you back to a bygone era, while its 17 bedrooms and 16 bathrooms should be enough to accommodate you and all your friends, in luxury.


Outside, there is a pool and hot tub, beautiful grounds, and a golf course right next door. The Manoir is close to iconic Eastern Township towns like Knowlton, Bromont, and Magog, for shopping and dining experiences.

But really, why would you ever leave the luxury, both inside and outside, of this iconic Quebecois mansion?

Dunsford House


If you prefer your mansion to be a little more on the rustic side, look no further than historic Dunsford House, in the Kawartha Lakes. Dunsford House was built in the early 19th century from massive handhewn logs from the shores of Sturgeon Lake, where the home is located.


Although a little on the small side for a mansion, with only six bedrooms and eight baths, Dunsford House is brimming with character with dovetailed timbers, vaulted ceilings, and four poster beds in each room.


With lakefront views, sunroom, and a rooftop patio also overlooking the lake, there is somewhere for everyone to enjoy, but wait there’s more…you also have access to all the facilities at Eganridge Resort, Country Club and Spa when you chose this lovely home. Tough decision!

Contemporary waterfront mansion


Perhaps you would prefer your mansion to be newer, with a more contemporary flair? The Lodge might be just what you are looking for. This 12,000 square foot contemporary waterfront mansion in Ottawa has 6 bedrooms and 9 spa-like baths to accommodate you and all your friends and family.


Also in the home? A gym, theatre, grand piano, cigar room and multi story windows looking out over the water. Lots of waterfront sports and a great beach are also in the cards here, so a summer stay is definitely in order.

Raja House


But really, if you’re living like the millionaires do, you might as well have an indoor pool and then the vagaries of the weather won’t be a problem.


Raja House, near the St. Lawrence seaway, has six bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths, and lots of marble.

With an indoor pool and hot tub, and large manicured grounds with no immediate neighbours, it’s ready for you to have fun, whatever the season.


The look of the house is latter century feudal, with columns and even a turret, but all the modern conveniences as well.

There you have it, lots of ways to live like a millionaire, in lots of places. Dream big and enjoy!
