  • «I rent quite frequently in Quebec and this cottage was stunning in design... a warm, open and welcoming space with incredible views. I ended up extending my first stay and returning for a second stay with the kids. Great place... great space.. a stunning retreat for the soul. »

  • «Where do you start when you've found paradise? Not only is this chalet stunning on the inside but the outside is absolutely breathtaking! I consider myself extremely picky and this chalet (I call it a Lakehouse) suited our every need (2 adults, 1 teen, 1 child). The lake & dock was where we spent most of our time either swimming, kayaking, paddle boating or just hanging out admiring the gorgeous view. At night, after a relaxing hot tub, we roasted marshmallows and shared stories by the fire. Exhausted from our fun-filled days we slept like bears in the super comfy beds. In the morning, the floor to ceiling windows made waking up soooo easy. If you want a chalet that does not disappoint from beginning to end, look no further! This place is A+++. Nicolas is great to deal with and responds to messages quickly & efficiently. »

  • «What an incredible stay! The chalet and surrounding property are stunning and well appointed. The view of the lake from the home is breathtaking and the chalet has everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable. We brought a number of items (like a french press coffee maker) only to realize they already had one on site! The owners have set everything up for you down to the smallest detail so you won’t need a thing. The few times that we had questions or any concern, the caretaker and owner were really quick to respond and resolve the issue for us right away. They were super friendly which just added to how welcome we felt. The property is gorgeous inside and out and everything is well maintained and spotlessly clean. If you stay there for a few days, make sure to hike in nearby Forest Ouareau! I'm sure we'll be back again. »

  • «I feel super qualified to review this chalet since I spent two whole months here during COVID, so lots of time indoors and on the property and it could not have been a better refuge. It's spacious and comfortable and beautifully designed. We got to watch the lake go from frozen to swimmable. Every season is beautiful (I’m assuming Fall is even better) and the sunsets are incredible. If we ever needed to fix or take care of something small, David, who lives nearby, was right there. Highly recommend this gem. »
