Come spend a rejuvenating holiday on our quiet & private lake near Val-des-Monts. We're just a 50 minute drive from downtown Ottawa.
This spectacular property sits at the bottom of a bay in stunningly beautiful lake - with western exposure, all day sunshine, beautiful sunsets and loon visits.
You’ll love our place for the great hiking, mountain biking, kayaking and fabulous swimming in our pristine lake. Great for couples, corporate retreats, and families (with kids)!
This spectacular property sits at the bottom of a bay with western exposure, all day sunshine, beautiful sunsets and loon visits. Ruisseau St. Germain's babbling brook cuts through the property and is a source of great joy & delight for young and old (bring your water shoes for great long hikes along the creek and through beautiful forest).
The cottage has a timber-frame living room with wood burning fireplace, board games, satellite TV, stereo with iPod dock, library, and comfy furniture to relax in.
Around the cottage are paths and trails through forest, along St Germain creek which runs through the property, and to hidden lakes and waterfalls.
We have a sunny, well-appointed kitchen with butcher block island (5 stools) & large dining area (harvest table seats 12), with French doors opening out to screened porch.
We also have a finished basement with a home theatre, huge screen TV for gaming & watching DVDs, movies etc and a second fridge & freezer and two additional bedrooms
Guests have access to great hiking, mountain biking, kayaking (2 double kayaks and 1 canoe available) and fabulous swimming in pristine Lac St-Germain.
We have two docks on the property: one near the house which you must wade into the water from and one in the middle of the bay for diving off of.
You will sleep soundly in a spacious cottage. We have a 2nd floor master bedroom with balcony & king bed, a 2nd floor bedroom queen bed, and 3 main floor bedrooms - 2 bedrooms with queen beds & 1 with bunks and a twin bed. We also have extra bedrooms in the basement, and a stunning home theatre.
We have three bathrooms. Two bathrooms are on the main floor - one has a tub/shower and the other, by the front door, is a toilet/sink only. The second floor bathroom has a whirlpool tub and a steam shower. We also have a sunny outdoor shower around the front of the house which you are welcome to use!
We also have a breezy comfortable screened-in porch for easy living with dining tables (seating for 12 - two round tables of six), comfy chaise-lounge, easy chair, and sofa for lounging and laying about with views of the lake, babbling brook and back garden.
We'll be online on our phones to help and answer any questions throughout your stay.
This is a very special place for us, and a quiet, remote lake, even though we are less than an hour from downtown Ottawa. Internet access is decent but is satellite/rural so speed is not the same as in the city and there are limits to large downloads of data. Cell coverage exists with all major providers but signal strength can be low.
