A room with a view

  • 5 of 5

Actually several rooms - each with Southern views over Lac St. Joseph from the three levels of this

beautifully located, lake-side house in the pleasant village of St. Adolphe d'Howard.

The tasteful furnishings and appliances are all of higher quality than in many rental properties

and it is obvious the owners have gone to great lengths to make this a very handsome property.

The eclectic inventory of books and CDs and the toys and games for children provide plenty

of diversions for all during times spent indoors.

We spent two enjoyable weeks at the end of July 2016 and the children had a great time fishing off the

dock and playing on the lawn while the adults were able to chill-out on the decks.

Having Ste. Agathe conveniently nearby gave us several shopping options.

The owners were very easy to deal with and were most helpful in trying to make our

stay as comfortable as possible while the caretaker was very friendly and always available.

A repeat visit is definitely in the cards.

Family Renewal

  • 4 of 5

Our little oasis in the heart of the beautiful Laurentians became our family home as members arrived from France, Ontario, Quebec and Brazil. This home was clean, and well equipped. We created many meals together with a well supplied kitchen, learned how to canoe and enjoyed the family games room. Very relaxing and enjoyable. We had a perfect opportunity just to hang out and reconnect with our family in a most wonderful home. We had a super night of Astronomy along with Star and Planet gazing at the Observatory held on Saturday evening near Mont Tremblant.

Wonderful March Break

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful March break at this cottage and would come back anytime. The cottage met all our expectations and more. Vary spacious, well equipped and warm and clean. It accomodated our two families (8) very confortably. Being close to so many x-country ski and downhill centres gave us the chance to try many. It is well located and easy access.

The owner was very pleasant to deal with, answered all our questions. Looking forward to another ski vacation at this cottage in the future.

Amazing relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this getaway to anyone looking for a top-notch experience. The home and grounds are fantastic as is the lake and the access to the canoes and dock! Every amenity you need is in the home. From entertainment to recreation to simple things like a dishwasher to help keep chores to a minimum.

The owners of the home are amazing and so easy to work with. I look forward to going back!
