Why Paul Andrascik chose Val-des-Monts

Peace and quiet, a beautiful natural setting, and privacy attracted us to this property. Now, we love the proximity of our 'cottage getaway' to Ottawa. It allows us to pop up for an evening or a weekend, and still be close enough to Ottawa to 'run back in' for children's soccer or appointments. We plan to move here permanently in a few years, once our children finish high school in Ottawa.

What makes this cottage unique

The focus of the property is the water. We have a fantastic waterfront on a beautiful, large lake. The water is 40 feet deep off the end of dock, and 120 feet deep in the nearby bay. Days are filled with fishing, sailing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking, while the evenings promise sunsets and campfires, stars watching and board games.

Great spot for a winter vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful lakeside cottage was the ideal setting for us to enjoy quality family time between Christmas and New Year’s this year. Although it is located less than one hour from our home, it felt like we were very far away from it all. The property is very private and the view of the lake from the cottage is beautiful. One thing that really struck me was how peaceful and quiet it was.

The cottage is very modern, spacious and well maintained, and the owners have taken great care to create a warm and inviting environment with all the amenities you need, from a well-equipped kitchen, washer/dryer and cozy bed linens, to helpful instructions and more. Much of our time was spent by the large fireplace on the main floor watching movies, reading and relaxing, playing on the pool table downstairs, bird watching – including a visit from a redheaded woodpecker - and going down to the lake to enjoy the outdoor fire pit and watch people ice-skating on the lake.

It was great dealing with Paul. He was very prompt in responding to queries, provided lots of information and even checked in via email during his own vacation to see how things were going.

All in all a great vacation and highly recommended!

Cozy fall retreat - perfect for "girls" getaway

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I have been getting together for a long weekend once a year for 19 years now. This year we stayed at Peace and Quiet and had one of the best accommodations ever. The main floor was just perfect for the 7 of us to enjoy whether we were cooking; enjoying food, conversation or games around the table; or relaxing in the comfy sofas/chair to watch a movie. Great views out the back windows and off the deck were ideal too.

The owners were very helpful and set us up for a very comfortable stay too. Happy to recommend this property!

A dream

  • 5 of 5

The best house we rented ever. The owner was so helpful and full of good advice. Everything was settled when we arrived. The house is so comfortable, all what you need to have a excellent family time. And the best is the view on the lake, with the sunset. So, without any doubt, I highly recommend this place for people who like Canada, nature, sport, leisure and comfort. Thanks for all

We spent a very enjoyable week at this residence. Beautiful view over looking the lake, quiet, with comfortable driving proximity to Ottawa. Home was very well appointed, clean, and owner was helpful without being intrusive. We would stay there again.

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, we had a wonderful time in your beautiful home and did not want to leave. We have stayed in quite a few vacation rentals over the past decade and this was definitely one of the best experiences we had. Our family especially enjoyed spending the evenings with a fire down by the lake.

It was exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We went up with 2 other families and had a great time. The upper deck is large and has a nice view. It is all quite private and quiet. The dock and lake are great and there is a canoe you can use. The house is clean and new and sits on a large piece of land. The owner was helpful and nice. There is even a pool table which was fun. Oh and the elctrical and plumbing, kitchen appliances, etc are all very functional and usable.

We had small kids with us and had to be extra mindful as the water is very dark and deep right off the dock.

The only funny thing was there were no blinds in the lower 3 bedrooms. If you are trying to sleep in and light bothers you, you might have some trouble.

Aside from the lack of blinds for the lower bedrooms the place is great and worth it.

Chances are that once you arrive at this lakefront private oasis, you won't want to leave. Nonetheless, there is plenty to do and see nearby with downtown Ottawa just 30 minutes away with shopping, Parliament Hill Tours and the National Gallery. Or you can travel 30 minutes to check out the ski hills or just relax and spend some quality time by yourself, with a friend or with family.
