"Our family had a wonderful 2 week vacation at this home. There was plenty of space for our 5 children (ages 5-14) to hang out inside and explore outside. Very safe, secure location; this is big for me with small children so I don't feel like I have to be like a hawk watching them every second. And actually I felt very relaxed everywhere I was in the whole area. The views from every window (and there are lots of them!) were breathtaking. Very private yet only a few minutes from the grocery and 15 minutes from Montavila...a great place for all ages...tubing, skiing, rafting, etc. The locals are very friendly and the maintenance guys take great care of the walkways, deck, yard, hottub, and everything all around. I am cold natured and was a little concerned about the large windows and cold weather, but the house was nice and toasty when we arrived and had great heating. I enjoy cooking food for my family and the kitchen had very nice appliances and dishes.
Since we were there in the winter, we weren't able to enjoy the pool, but I'm sure it would be great for the warm season. We did enjoy the hottub and the easy access in and out.
We visited the LaChute Baptist Church (about 25 minutes) and loved all the people there...they were very welcoming and we made some new friends, even the kids! Montreal is only about 45 minutes and we visited the Biodome, which was very interesting and went to see Disney's Frozen on Ice at the Bell Centre. Fantastic! We also went to Aventure Plein Air and enjoyed the dogsledding (our favorite...even our 12 year old was able to drive the sled!), excellent food, and tubing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and many other winter activities for the family.
The location was great for us, wanting to get away from it all and enjoy lots of quality family time. Totally relaxing and peaceful environment! Comfy beds and bedding, plenty of towels and beautiful, comfortable furniture...delightful! and close to lots of fun things to do!
If you are looking for the perfect winter vacation spot, this is it! and I can imagine it is even better, if possible, in the summer!"
