About the Property

Cottage, 3+ Bedrooms, 3.5+ Baths (Sleeps 6)

In the Eastern Townships of Quebec, situated on Lake Memphremagog, the cottage faces southwest with a spectacular view over the lake towards Owl’s Head ski hill. This orientation means that there is sun on the beach and waterfront all day long, a rare advantge on this North-South lake. Most properties get either morning or afternoon sun, but not both. We are most fortunate!

The property was built in the late 1940’s but has grown over the years. The current owner is only the third owner and has had the privilege of this beautiful location since 1978. This is truly a place to make memories. The tranquil setting of the lake, with the water at your doorstep is sure to relax and rejuvenate the soul. Lake Mempremagog is still a pristine, clean lake and our location has a clean gravel lake bottom. We have no seaweed.

Extending 32 miles from Magog Quebec to Newport, Vermont, this is a freshwater, glacial lake. Ideal for the enjoyment of water sports, the property is equipped with many water and boating accessories.

The character and ambiance of the house has been preserved with the original wide pine wall paneling in the kitchen and small living room. The house has the feel of a summer cottage with modern amenities. The kitchen has beautiful granite counters and brand new stainless steel appliances. The recently renovated Master suite includes a new bathroom with deep soaker tub, custom glass shower enclosure and a flat screen television. The Master bedroom also has a wood stove.

The house also has a collection of National Geographic magazines and books about nature. You never know when you might find a flower being pressed between the pages of an old book; waiting for a child to come and re-discover her preserved treasure. There is a rock collection sitting in an old ice cream container that is now into its second generation of “life”. Our granddaughter has begun to add her discoveries to the collection started by her mother.

Swimming, snorkeling, fishing, paddle boating, sailing, canoeing, tubing, and water skiing are all activities possible at this property, but perhaps the most pleasant is watching the sunset while sitting on the dock.

The winter seasons gives us a chance to enjoy three of the best ski hills in the east. Just 15 minutes away from Owl's Head Ski Resort, a wonderful family focused ski hill. With great downhill elevations, but also extensive slopes for children, Owl's Head is where three generations of our family have learned to ski. On the edge of Lake Memphremagog, Owl's Head offers spectacular views. In the opposite direction, 15 minutes away is Orford Ski Resort. Part of a Quebec provincial park this resort offers great downhill as well as cross country and snow showing. A beautiful tranquil setting, Orford has a great chalet so you can extend your ski day into the evening.

If you are inclined to travel just a bit farther; 40 minutes you can cross the border into Vermont and enjoy the incessant snow of Jay Peak. With the biggest vertical drop in the Northeast and the luxury of its location in some bizarre 'it is always snowing' at Jay this ski hill is sure to have challenges for the most expert skiers. This ski hill has the most natural snow in the entire Northeast which allows for one of the longest ski seasons available.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: We have enjoyed this property with our children and now our grandchildren. The oldest three of our five children have started families. We have been blessed to have the experience of this home. The lake gives us the peace of nature and family memories for the generations. It has been and is a retreat for three generations now.

Why the Owner Chose Austin, QC, Canada:
We saw the property from the frozen lake in the middle of winter and bought it without even going inside. The view and location are beautiful and we were very lucky to have bought it when we did. It has grown with our family and is a favorite place of all of us.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We have made available to guests all the 'toys' of our life on the lake. We have waterfront equipment of all sorts and for all ages. The house has been our place of relaxation and family fun for 3 generations now and we are very happy to share that experience with you. It is a place to make memories.
