Our very private and family residence is situated at the top of a picturesque cliff overlooking the very beautiful Heney Lake in the upper Gatineau. We are approximately a one hour commute from the heart of Ottawa, Canada's capital and its many attractions.
Heney Lake is a 9-mile long, 2-mile wide very quiet spring-fed lake where you will experience breathtaking sunsets and an abundance of wildlife all year round. If you are a sports enthusiast you will find Heney Lake ideal for fishing, snorkeling, kite and wake boarding, sailing, kayaking, canoeing, rock jumping, swimming and a range of other activities. If you are an armchair adventurer you will enjoy reading from your comfortable lakeside deck photographing those at play from one of several access points facing the lake. Cell phone service is generally reliable from most carriers and satellite TV is provided.
Mont Ste Marie is just 10 minutes away, offering an 18-hole golf course and clubhouse facilities in summertime. There are also restaurants and convenience retail stores within 10 minutes' drive.
Our residence is fully winterized and comfortably heated using geothermal sources complemented by two breath taking wood burning fireplaces. Heney Lake in the winter is a magical place where, when you fall into your cozy bed tired from a day of snowshoeing in the forest across the road, downhill or cross-country skiing at nearby Mont Ste Marie, you will gaze through the window at more stars than you ever thought the sky could hold.
We take pride in home away from home and we work hard to provide you with the vacation you want - whether that be a week away with your children or a romantic getaway with your partner. Our house is well stocked and very comfortable and we hope you will feel at home during your stay with us. We want you to love our place as much as we do and return to your world relaxed and rested.
