About Denice

We are a family of life-long skiers. I've been skiing for decades, but am still most comfortable on the blues. Our grown sons are now expert tele-skiers who seek out the challenging slopes and back-country, while I prefer the convenience of clicking into my skis right on the front porch. But we all love skiing and the many good times spent with family and friends in our ski condo!

Denice purchased this condo in 2002

Why Denice chose Mansonville

As soon as we drove into Owls Head (on the dirt road that in summer traverses the ski trail), saw the stunning views and realized we could combine that with the ease of Ski-in / Ski-out, we were sold! The Ski-in / Ski-out aspect of this condo is wonderful (ski-in for bathroom breaks, snacks, adjusting layers of clothing, meals, rests, etc), and we've found that because we are constantly in and out of the condo during the ski day, even the non-skiers in our group remain included in the interaction of the day. Another reason we love this property is the spectacular view of the lake! We enjoy boating and fishing on the lake, and we've done our share of golfing at Owls Head in the summertime, too. Lots to do in this four-season for us, it's really all about the ski-in / ski-out!

What makes this condo unique

Did I mention SKI-IN / SKI-OUT? Plus: gorgeous lake, golf, boating, mountain-biking competitions, summer music festival, hiking, fishing, autumn-fest...

Perfect Ski-in / Ski-out Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time at the condo at Mt. Owls Head. The property was exactly as described and located directly uphill from the 'black chair' lift which made it an ideal spot to depart on skis and return to the condo as necessary though-out the day for refreshments. The condo was well stocked, pleasantly decorated and impeccably clean.

The snow conditions were ideal. We had a stretch of cold weather and a storm which brought 75cm of powder snow! After spending the day on the slopes, my family had a wonderful time in front of the fire place, playing board games and lounging in the main area of the condo.

Mt. Owls Head is an ideal family ski destination. There were no crowds and everything was very reasonably priced. Even the pro-shop at the ski resort was well stocked with any last minute items you may forget to bring. Staff was extremely friendly everywhere and we dined at the main lodge twice during the snow storm.

The area surrounding lac Mephremagog is very scenic and we could imagine that it would also be an ideal area to vacation during the summer season. We made a few trips to the town of Magog which is a bustling larger town with several options of fine dining. Magog also has all of the major stores and includes a large ski and bike store.

We can't wait to come back next year for skiing and would consider coming for a week during the summer. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Michael, Thank you for your wonderful review and for your "Highly Recommended" rating of my condo! It is awesome that you got so much fresh powder to ski during your stay! I'm happy that you appreciated the cleanliness, completeness and decor of the condo - we try hard to make it a clean, pleasant and welcoming home-away-from-home for our guests and it's rewarding when that is noticed. I'm also pleased to hear that your family enjoyed cozy evenings in front of the fireplace in the condo. It sounds like you gave your children some special memories to take home from your Owls Head ski trip...and I'm glad that our condo was a part of that. It was a pleasure renting to you and I look forward to your return. Denice

Everything you need for a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and everything you need at your finger tips. Kids loved having their own space.

Access to the Marina, just a short walk or drive away, for a swim and cliff jumping was awesome. Thanks much for a great weekend!

I loved ournstay on the mountain side of Owls Head!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on the mountainside! The ski in and ski out was amazing! We loved the tips in the white binder and followed the instructions to the best of our ability. The only negatives were the wifi situation and the garbage. There was no internet and the garbage outside was a mess. We loved the wood fire and the old décor. And I absolutely loved all 68 owls, I am an owl fanatic. At the Owls head restaurant we were amazed on how hard working the waitresses are! We ate there Tuesday and Thursday night and were waited by a phenomenal lady named Roxane. She was quite amazing! We also went to Magog (thanks for the advice in the binder) we ate lunch at Pinocchio it was to die for (I recommend the mussels). Over all we loved our stay at your condo and thank you so much! -Alexis Crochiere ( granddaughter)

Owner's Response: Alexis, Thank you for your eloquent, detailed review! I'm glad to hear you all enjoyed your stay on the mountain, and it's good to know that the advice/info in my condo-binder is useful. The garbage situation that you noticed is the result of the trash-cans being plowed into the snow bank in our parking lot, and is to be resolved in the very near future. I understand your desire for wifi (we usually suggest an air-card or phone access) ...but I'm happy that you spent your time finding and enjoying all my owls! I had no idea there are 68 of them in the condo! (You've thrown down a challenge and I now intend to try to count them all...I doubt I can do as well as you did, though). I'm honored that your family tradition of skiing at Owls Head continued in my condo. I hope that some day you will return to Owls Head with your own child and continue the family tradition that your grandfather started....and I hope you'll still be counting owls! Thank you, Denice

It's all about the view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Owl's Head for a month, escaping the Florida heat. Being in Canada was such a wonderful experience. Lovely area, great golf course, lots to see and do if you love the outdoors. Beach, kayaking, fishing, and good food. Lots of nearby towns to explore, and Montreal for a day trip. Denice's place was very well equiped, and very comfortable for the 4 of us. Very easy to communicate with, and pleasant. Thanks again for working with us.

Owner's Response: I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay, and that you appreciated the beautiful view from the condo. It sounds like you were able to fully enjoy the wonderful summer activities at Owls Head and the surrounding area, and I'm sure the cool mountain air was refreshing. Thank you for leaving the condo so clean. I hope to hear from you again regarding a future visit. And by the way, I was pleasantly surprised to find the walking stick that one of you skillfully whittled...it will remain inside the condo for others to use for hiking the mountain. Thanks! Best regards, Denice
