Ripon House Rental Photos and Description

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

About Bret Howard

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

Bret Howard purchased this house in 1949

Why Bret Howard chose Quebec

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Second year here and was even better than the first year. The swimming in your own lake is fabulous, the biking is hilly and the trails are super. Could stay here the whole summer!

Wonderful cottage for a summer family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our large family thoroughly enjoyed our week vacation at Deer Lake cottage. From firewood to all the kitchen amenities to a caretaker who answered any questions, we were very pleased with all the services. The cottage had areas and activities for all our various ages, from a small beach to a dock to boats to fishing, and much more. We would definitely recommend it to our friends - except for wanting to keep such a great spot to ourslves for another year!

Wonderfull first impression, joyfull stay where everyone found a relaxing spot.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I entered the cottage and saw the main room, I new we had arrived in a special, loved and full of joyfull moments place.

Being in the kitchen with my sisters while preparing meals became a new favorite moments with fabulous lake view on both sides and the outstandingly equipped kitchen.

Even when it rained the cabin is roomy and it was as if each and everyone found a cozy spot to watch the day go by, relax and enjoy the peace of this private lake.

The cabin was very clean and everything that can be needed was provided. Also the attending staff was very attentive and friendly and it was obvious they appreciated this place very much as we did.

We would definitely re command or go back to this great cottage.

A very private vacation on a superb lake.

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion with 18 people from 5 yr old to 70 coming from six different cities all over North America. We all had a lot of fun and laughter with wonderful swimming. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds are comfortable with lots of linens and towels. Be prepared to relax and enjoy. There is a caretaker who removes the garbage and recyclables nearly every day. I highly recommend it!

Paradise found!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent an amazing week on Deer Lake. The place is perfect. We had 11 kids under 7 and they let some parents come. There was room to spread out. Room to sleep. Hammocks. Boats. Sauna for post bedtime. Everyone was in love with the place. And to be greeted by a tray of fresh muffins and the wonderful Thierry. We can't wait to come back!!
