I am a Canadian married to a Brit and living in the UK. I am a stay at home mum and we are determined to ensure that our children stay in touch with their North American roots. That is why we purchased our small piece of Canada and we are there as often as we can be. The children love it winter or summer, there is as much or as little as you would like to do. You can set your own pace! We all ski together in the winter and end the day in the hot tub! We splash in the pool in the summer and experience the cosmopolitan street life in Montreal in the warm summer evenings. We walk in the woods all year around. We watched a raccoon try to get the lid off our garbage and saw a hummingbird hover 6 inches from us on the other side of the window. The chipmunks play for hours, the deer walk through the woods. It is truly our heaven on earth.
Eileen Church purchased this cabin in 2009
Morin Heights, Saint Sauveur and the Laurentians offered us everything we wanted in terms of activities. The slopes in Saint Sauveur are lit to allow night skiing. 45 minutes drive to Mont Tremblant gives you a whole new skiing experience. The cosmopolitan city life with museums, galleries and theatres is available in Montreal only 45 mins drive away. The water parks and 6 Flags theme park are favourites for the kids in the summer. Quebec City and Ottawa are also close enough for a day visit.
Staying at our home allows to set your own pace for your vacation. WiFi allows you to stay in touch with the office if you choose or you can just sit on the deck and watch the wildlife. You can load up your snowshoes and skis and go off along the crosscountry ski routes or you can sit in the hot tub. You can have dinner at a swanky Montreal restaurant or you can put your feet up and watch a movie with a home cooked meal. Its all there if you would like to experience it or you can sit back and kick off your shoes! Either way, or a bit of both, you will have a great time!
Our family had a wonderful 2 week vacation at this home. There was plenty of space for our 5 children (ages 5-14) to hang out inside and explore outside. Very safe, secure location; this is big for me with small children so I don't feel like I have to be like a hawk watching them every second. And actually I felt very relaxed everywhere I was in the whole area. The views from every window (and there are lots of them!) were breathtaking. Very private yet only a few minutes from the grocery and 15 minutes from Montavila...a great place for all ages...tubing, skiing, rafting, etc. The locals are very friendly and the maintenance guys take great care of the walkways, deck, yard, hottub, and everything all around. I am cold natured and was a little concerned about the large windows and cold weather, but the house was nice and toasty when we arrived and had great heating. I enjoy cooking food for my family and the kitchen had very nice appliances and dishes.
Since we were there in the winter, we weren't able to enjoy the pool, but I'm sure it would be great for the warm season. We did enjoy the hottub and the easy access in and out.
We visited the LaChute Baptist Church (about 25 minutes) and loved all the people there...they were very welcoming and we made some new friends, even the kids! Montreal is only about 45 minutes and we visited the Biodome, which was very interesting and went to see Disney's Frozen on Ice at the Bell Centre. Fantastic! We also went to Aventure Plein Air and enjoyed the dogsledding (our favorite...even our 12 year old was able to drive the sled!), excellent food, and tubing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and many other winter activities for the family.
The location was great for us, wanting to get away from it all and enjoy lots of quality family time. Totally relaxing and peaceful environment! Comfy beds and bedding, plenty of towels and beautiful, comfortable furniture...delightful! and close to lots of fun things to do!
If you are looking for the perfect winter vacation spot, this is it! and I can imagine it is even better, if possible, in the summer!
We had a couples retreat for one weekend and we simply couldn’t have asked for better accommodations to simply relax and enjoy our time in the sun. The pool and spa was the focal point of the chalet and the grounds were perfectly maintained and extremely clean. The exterior and interior truly gave the impression of being in a chalet away from the big city with all the log-cut walls and wooden finishings. The chalet was well equipped with kitchen supplies to cook a great home-made meal and came with a surplus amount of linens for shower and sleeping accommodations. You can even take advantage of a few hiking trails and the St-Sauveur waterslides during the summer time, all within close proximity.
The owner was always responsive to our questions and went out of her way to ensure that we had everything we needed for a perfect weekend. Amazing service.
I highly recommend this chalet and will definitely be back in the future!
We were there for 6 nights for last Christmas and it was a wonderful place to host family as we live outside Québec! Everything was perfect, we had great service and the place is confortable and well equipped for cooking a good meal!
Hope we gonna be there again next year!
We can't say enough about how peaceful and relaxing this vacation home is! This was our third visit, and we are still amazed with every return. The property exceeds all our expectations.....it is well equiped with all amenities and is in superb condition.The owner was a pleasure to deal with and responded quickly to any inquiries. We look forward to another return visit!!!
Perfect location for our two family extended weekend for skiing in Ste Sauveur Region. Chalet accomodated all our needs and more during the stay... location provided all needs to our group of Parents/Teenagers. Close enough for busy shopping/recreational activities but remote enough for privacy/quiet time. Would highly recomend and consider for return visit.
