This is a unique property that gives you all the privacy for a relaxing getaway but is close to everything anyone may need. It is situated on one lake but also gives you access to a second and much larger lake by taking the canoe or kayak on the river directly on our property. The river is shallow and safe enough that it is used as a natural spa....a soothing but not overwhelming rush of the river can be heard throughout this chalet. The river and lake are very clean so swimming is a must. A shallow and small pond , in the middle of the river, makes this an ideal swimming pool for children.

We always considered an apartment in the city and a home in the country but were never truly motivated until we came across this property. We always wanted a lakefront property and looked at many......but we were always hesitant and could never decide....but when we saw this property, just like our agent said, it sells itself! The fact that it has a natural river spa and two lakes makes it extremely unique!
The Owner purchased this chalet in 2010
We rented this cottage for a week to celebrate my husband's birthday. I prefer a lakeside setting and my husband likes rivers but this cottage has both. The lake is very shallow which was excellent for our 2 small children. The sound of the river was so soothing that we wanted to be outdoors all day and night. The patio is overlooking both the lake and the river so the view is incredible.
The cottage looked even better in person than it did in the photos. It is beautifully furnished and the kitchen was better stocked with dishes, serving plates and kitchen toys than my own kitchen. TV had lots of channels and there were also lots of movies provided but we were outdoors most of the time and having bonfires instead of watching TV in the evenings.
While we stayed at the cottage, we made a trip to a lovely wellness spa (which you can walk to) but once there, my husband and I said it was a waste of time since we were already so relaxed just sitting on the patio listening to the river passing by at the cottage.
We took our children biking on the nearby Anaerobic Corridor which was fantastic and we also spent a day at the local waterpark which the children loved.
We made a few trips to nearby Saint Saveur for shopping and dining.
MOM ALERT: The downstairs bathroom features the most relaxing bathtub ever - it is basically at the same level as the river and the windows in the bathroom are huge so you can open the window a bit and hear the river while you soak in the triangular tub. Loved it!
This cottage is great and the owners were very kind and helpful. I would recommend rent it in the summer, early fall, during skiing season, and/or late fall.
We rented the chalet for a family get together of 10. It was one of our best vacations. It was wonderful to get up in the morning to the sound of rushing water. The river is right there. You can enjoy it from the deck as well or you can get in it. We went kayaking a couple of days or just simply swimming for a bit. The chalet was very spacious, well kept, and the owner was very attentive to all of our needs. Canada's largest water park was less than 15 minutes from the chalet and we truly enjoyed the Village of St. Sauver. Very quaint and cute and good food. After all, we were less than an hour from Montreal. We took the trip a couple of times and loved coming back to our mountain retreat after leaving the hustle and bustle of the big city. Definitely will go back!!
Our little family of four rented the chalet over the winter months of 2011. We had a wonderful time. The children not only loved the ski (Morin Heights is a 7 minute drive ) but loved being at the chalet. It is warm, newly renovated and so peaceful. There is so much place to play both inside and outside. The indoor garage made leaving on sunday nights less difficult as the children, almost asleep asked all the way home to Montreal, when would we be back.
We will for sure rent the property again. The owner was very generous with his time and access to such a lovely home.
What a treat this wonderful place by the river is....
My family and I visited the Chalet over the winter and loved every minute of it! The cross country ski trail was fantastic not to mention affordable. Close to shopping, pizza and of course skiing. The house was roomy enough for everyone to have their own space and the kitchen table was the perfect size for all of us to play games together. It was clean and very well kept by the owners. We will definitely go back, absolutely loved it!
Our stay during the winter holidays was fabulous. The chalet is close to town but offers the seclusion we were seeking. It sits on the bank of a stream and the views from the chalet are stunning. From the den we looked out onto a lake and could only imagine what it must be like in the summer during swimming season. This chalet has it all, we will definitely come back!
