About Samuel N. Bousada
We are a mature couple who enjoy the lake, beach and nature trails at Lac Castor. We both grew up in Ottawa, Ontario and we currently spend six months at the lake and close to six months in Florida. We are happily retired and wish to share Lac Castor with our guests. It is a pristine area truly nature at its best. The water is second to none and we encourage our guests to bring containers so that they may enjoy the water at home. It is not unusual to see hummingbirds, blue jays, woodpeckers, wild turkeys, ducks, beavers and deer all in a single day.
Why Samuel N. Bousada chose Val-des-Monts
Although this property is situated in full nature you are only 30 minutes from downtown Ottawa. Truly, the best of both worlds!

Incredible hospitality, beautiful cottage, private lake All to your self!!!
The owners of this cottage are absolute Gems! Easy to book, answered all the questions leading up to our trip and hosted us so well. They even stocked the fridge with bagels, milk, egg and cheese incase we forgot to bring breakfast after a midnight trip. How sweet!!
The cottage is immaculate and beautifully furnished, with gorgeous views and private lake and a barbq area. The water is amazing, we were goofing around for hours in the canoes they provided us. There are great hikes around the area too! Cannot recommend these people enough, if you want to unplug or chill out with friends, this is the place. Beautiful, peaceful, and adventurous.!
Dear Raed and Naz,
Thank you for your lovely and heartfelt review. We truly appreciate your kind words and we are so glad you enjoyed your time at Lac Castor.
We wish the weather would have been more cooperative during your stay however it was wonderful that you made good use of the lake on Saturday.
You were most amazing guests and we do hope you have the chance to return this way again.
Warm regards and every best wish!
Sam and Ann
Restful & relaxing!
We had a super week! The lake was perfect on the hot days and the wildlife was amazing (Belle the turtle and Barry the beaver!). The hosts, Ann and Sam were friendly and helpful. Excellent spot for a family retreat. Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise with us.
Superb private property with stunning views
By far the most private rental we have ever experienced. Exactly as described, this home is nestled in the woods on a quiet private lake. Perfect for seekers of solitude, peace and to simply to 'get away'. Our family of four plus two dogs enjoyed observing the turtle, beavers, swimming and kayaking on the warm and clean lake. Away from any roads, we were able to let our dogs run freely, exploring the forests around the home. Located just 25 minutes from downtown Ottawa, visitors will have lots to do even on a rainy day. The hosts are super warm and friendly and just walking distance away if anything is needed. We hope to return next summer! A+ experience!
