Here is an artistic cozy cottage, with open cathedral ceiling, natural pine beams, traditional red trim wood panel windows/doors, paperback library nestled on shelves overlooking living room. Quebec Montebello style, truly an artist's getaway, with sunset's crimson colours flooding thru living room. Front veranda, a great spot for summer siestas or simply listening to your favuorite music, book in hand. The panoramic window-paneled veranda looks out on lake & the majestic 80 year old white pine trees, home to songbirds, chipmunks, all three swaying in summer's breeze. A loft with single captain's bed & double bed overlooks the living room. There is dining area, stereo system, wall-library of paperbacks & in-house games.The cottage is fully furnished with futons, hutch with cutlery, wine glasses, plates etc., electric heaters, propane furnace & fireplace with electric flame/heater.The kitchen is small but fully equipped, includes small appliances - coffee - maker etc. An operative wood stove for heat and charm. The bathroom is off the side galley with shower. Towels and beddings provided upon request. Guests are asked to bring drinking water which is easily purchased at 1 stop grocery store 5 minutes away in Quebec village of Val des Monts (formerly Perkins). There are fire alarm and extinguishers in the cottage. Very peaceful, tranquil place inside & out.


The cottage is unique in that it is "grandfathered" for close proximity to the water shoreline notably 20 feet away. Cottage's close proximity to the water lets you hear at night, the sound of water gently lapping the shoreline - like a nocturnal lullaby rocking you to sleep! The property is 2 acres with 200 ' of waterfront there are no neighbors close to you back or west side, the east side has second cottage that I own which isn't visible from this Rustic cottage / property. There is a path thru the woods linking the 2 cottages which makes the 2 properties attractive to 2-3 families who want to share vacation time together but live all the while in separate cottages. The property is highly treed & nestled under the crown of aged majestic pine trees, which provides added privacy & quiet. The land slopes gently north toward the lake to a 30' cedar dock with swim ladder, & moored new alu 16' boat. End of dock is deeper water for diving. Alongside dock, is pebble/sand beach with shallow, clear, gradual descent, safe for kids. There is great 40' long railed cedar deck with spa at one end, & eating area with umbrella/table for dining at other end. Cottage has outdoor motion lights for night safety. There is firepit area with chairs & cement BBQ at lake's edge, wood is included. Higher up at the back of the property next to cottage kitchen, there is propane BBQ with picnic table, making meals & eating out easy. There is ample parking for 2-3 cars, close by, is the lawn court for badminton, volley ball, lawn bowling & croquet. Under the cottage there is open area for paddles, water toys, fishing lines etc. Kayak/canoe /paddle boards & 8HP motor are available @ extra.
