This luxurious 3-bedroom cedar log chalet is located 35 minutes from central Ottawa, Canada's Capital City. While it has all the comfort and amenities of a city home, it also provides the warmth and charm of a chalet due to its attractive round cedar log furniture, fir beams, cathedral ceiling, spectacular bay window, old Quebec style antiques on the inside, and red shutters and flower boxes on the outside. The stunning double fireplace provides a most comfortable sense of warmth during the cooler nights.
There is a huge balcony as well as two screened porches where you can enjoy the tranquility of the lake, admire the amazing sunsets, see and listen to the beautiful sound of the loons. The beautiful, pristine, lake water is excellent for swimming off the dock or from the sandy beach where toddlers and children can safely enjoy themselves. This is an unbelievable opportunity to observe and hear nature: the call of the loons, the take-off and flight of the blue herons, the jumping of fish at dusk, etc.
In addition, there is a large floating dock with ladder and diving board where you can entertain your friends on the lake. Fishing is a great pastime for young and old on the U-shaped dock. Other interesting activities include canoeing, kayaking or rowing.. A basketball net provides great fun for children and adults alike. There is a children's tree house outside with all kinds of ropes, mini zip line, swings, and many other toys. A portable fire pit in the meadow near the bay provides a wonderful area for fun sing songs in the evening.
While the chalet has 3 bedrooms, it also has a den which can be closed off as a bedroom with a double size sofa bed. Therefore it can sleep 8 people very comfortably. There are one queen size bed, one double bed and two singles (bunk bed) in the three bedrooms.
The open concept of the living and dining area provides a wonderful space to entertain family and friends. It has a large bay window at one end of this great room and a magnificent bar area in the opposite end.
This chalet contains all of the amenities associated with a luxury home: dishwasher, compactor, 2-door fridge/freezer, stove with oven, microwave, toaster oven, toaster, etc. in the kitchen; large screen TV, Wifi, washer/dryer, etc., and a Bar-B-Q.
Golf is nearby and so is an eco-tourism park which will fascinate the visitors. The proximity to the Capital city of Ottawa provides an abundance of festivals, museums, restaurants, shopping, theatre, and visits to the Central Experimental Farm and Ornamental Gardens.
The four seasons are spectacular. The area is known for its splendid autumn colours. Winter is special as the snow is clean and the air is clear. There are world-famous ski hills to tackle as well as kilometers of packed ski trails nearby. Snowshoeing and skating on the frozen lake is a true Canadian experience! In Spring, there are several "cabanes à sucre" nearby showcasing maple syrup time.
