About the Property

Perfect For Family Retreat - Memories; Swimming, Boating, Fishing, Hiking

Property comfortably accommodates 8 adults (Main House) and 6 children/young teenagers (Bunk House).

Located 10 miles from the Lac Simon recreational area. This family paradise is on a secluded mile-long spring-fed PRIVATE lake. This picture-perfect vacation home is only one of three properties on the lake and is deep in the Quebec countryside and yet within easy reach of Ottawa, Canada’s Capital (50 minutes) and Montreal (2 hours). This property is easily accessible by car.

The main house comes with all the amenities. It has large open great room with a ceiling- high stone fireplace, picture windows and a deck with a spectacular view down the lake; a fully equipped kitchen and pantry; a stone patio in the front, a spacious new dock, private beach area and fully equipped sauna.

Deer Lake offers the best of all worlds – quiet lake-centered recreation, lake trout and small-mouth bass fishing, a natural ecosystem with beavers and loons surrounded by lush forests and hills as well as the urban-centered European-like attractions of Canada’s Capital City. You can take a morning adventure to Ottawa, enjoy the museums, open air farmer's market, and boutiques and be back on the lake for late afternoon swimming and dock time.

Two premier and one country public golf courses are only minutes away as are local bistros, farmers’ markets and small town shops. There are hiking trails on the property and hiking and biking trails in nearby parks. You are minutes away from civilization, but when on the lake, you would never know it.

Perfect for family gatherings.

Property equipped with swings, canoes and rowboats.

Main House 2500 square feet + basement with laundry, storage and sauna
1 bunk house - 300 square feet

On site services
Caretaker available daily for arrival, departure and urgent issues
Please note that this is a non-smoking property (both inside and out) and no pets are allowed.

There is Park Omega, an open air wildlife park and local miniature golf courses for children of all ages.

The famous Chateau Montebello, the former Seignorey Club, along the Ottawa River and one of the largest log construction resorts in North America is only 30 minutes away in a charming village called Montebello.

There is a fishing club offering guided fishing trips on other large regional lakes.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1949

About the owner: The Lake and bunk house were built in 1960 and have been meticulously maintained as a family vacation home for over 50 years.

Why the Owner Chose Ripon, QC, Canada:
Our grandparents and parents loved the fishing, solitude and appreciation of nature. They fell in love with this area over 50 years ago. It offered us a chance to connect as a family without the demands of technology, a throwback to a more relaxed pace.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The best of both worlds - private secluded lake side recreation and the ability to easily two of Canada's premier cities, Ottawa and Montreal. Canada's capitol city. While there are 2 other properties on the lake, one is down at the end and not in view, a mile a way and the other, while closer is also obscured by trees and lush landscape. You can be as far away from civilization or as close to the action as you like' As a family we always treasured the quiet time of just playing without interruption from the hustle of day-to-day life.
