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.
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!
