Heritage House is a superb, executive lakefront Mountain Chalet, perfectly located at Mont-Tremblant, Quebec.
This residence was planned and appointed to accommodate skiers, golfers and summer lovers in comfort, luxury and large private spaces. It is located in the peaceful forest of the ''Villa des Bois'' development at Lac Dufour / Lac Forget ('for'jet'), only a short drive from the quaint shops and restaurants of St-Jovite (5 minutes), 5 golf courses, and the combined skiing capital of Mont-Tremblant and Mont Blanc (within 10 minutes drive). Close to the action ... yet in a world of its own.
The Chalet is rented directly by its owners, thus assuring quality and reasonable prices.
It is nestled high in the secluded hills of ''Villa des Bois'', on 1.6 acres of private forest.
The home is 2,500 square feet of modern, opened spaces, cathedral ceilings, and ''walls of glass'' where you may bask in sunshine (or in moonlight), all year round, while taking in the stunning view and the mature trees all around.
It has 4 very large bedrooms, 3 full washrooms (1 en-suite), 6 outside decks and a huge screened-in porch. It is fully equipped to receive 8 adults very comfortably.
The main entrance is warm and inviting. It leads to the living room which is simply stunning with its huge cascading windows, warm Napoleon fireplace, antique furniture and original art, and its cozy leather couches, library and wing back chair. The living room is such, we are told, that no photo can appropriately describe the sensation. It has to be experienced first hand.
The dining room is large and the table expands to easily accommodate the entire group of guests.
It gives onto a large deck and the screened porch, where you may BBQ to your heart's content all year round, surrounded by nature! The kitchen is bright and fully equipped, Lagustina pots, pans and stainless, and all the large and small appliances you would expect. We provide the kitchen staples so that you can enjoy your holidays, instead of running around town: spices, sugar, flour, Soya sauce, salt, pepper, ketchup, mustard, etc,... not to mention the kitchen sink!
There are 2 large bedrooms on the main floor, along with 2 full bathrooms (bath / shower). The master bedroom has a king size sleigh bed, with ensuite washroom. The other bedroom has a queen size bed.(All have beds have a down duvet, comfy pillows, and clean linens.)
Up to the cozy loft, and admire the magnificent view of the lake from the 2 singles beds.
The oversized family room is on the lower level, with its 9 foot ceiling, relaxing furniture, Digital cable reception with large screen TV, HD DVD, computer, printer, fax and yet another wood burning fireplace.
The patio door walk-out leads to a colorful wild flower garden, more decks and the romantic pathway to the lake, through the woods. The last bedroom, also on the lower level, occupies an entire wing of the house and is practically an apartment on its own, along with the third full washroom, adjacent laundry facilities.
Can't leave the office behind? Relax! We have Wi-Fi high speed internet throughout the property and a full office setup downstairs. In addition, our VOIP telephones allow you to call home, or anywhere in North America, for free!
The Beach: (AKA as ''The rock'')
Enjoy, your own private bedrock beach, flowing into the pristine waters of Lac Forget, or read your favorite book a few steps back, under the shade of a 160 year old jack pine. The key words here are: ''Privacy'' and ''Solitude''. From the beach head which is a point advancing into the lake, everything around is natural forest: the neighbors are nowhere to be seen.
About the owner: This chalet is owned by Jacques Berthiaume and is operated directly by him and his wife, Beth Williams. Jacques and Beth were born and raised in Ottawa, Ontario, and currently live in Gatineau (Aylmer), Quebec, across the river from Ottawa. They have two fantastic daughters.

His hobbies and interests include traveling, computing and racing cars. Jacques is fully bilingual (French and English). Beth works in the 'high tech' environment, as office manager for a large consulting firm in Ottawa. Her passions include gardening, cooking and traveling. It was our travel experience around the world which prompted us to offer to travelers, the very ingredients that create satisfying and memorable holidays: An immaculate 5 star property, fully equipped and outfitted, located in a priceless, quiet and natural environment, just minutes from the local center of attraction and all the action. This, is our promise to you!
Why the Owner Chose Mont Tremblant:
Beth had a keen sense for hot and interesting travel destinations, and she identified Mont-Tremblant and the Villa des Bois area, as such, in the late 90's. 'Heritage House' (north) as we call it, was custom built by us, as a Y2K project, on the prime lakefront lot of the Villa des Bois project, in Mont-Tremblant. It is one of two rental properties we own in Mont-Tremblant, and built specifically to accommodate up to 8 travelers, with total care and comfort. As for Mont-Tremblant itself, it has so much to offer, the most difficult part is... having to leave.
Why chose our property? 1) Personal involvement of the owners: Renting our chalet is a personal activity that we both enjoy very much. We personally look after every aspect of the chalet and the rentals, to ensure that your holidays will be a resounding success. After all, who wants to take a risk on their precious holidays? We thrive on the personal contact with our guests, and our objective is simple: To make happy stories and perfect, memorable holidays for our guests!
2) Location - Setting - Architecture: This, you will have to experience directly; In the meantime, you must take our word for it (or those of our guests). All we can say, is that in our 14 years of rental, we have never received anything less than fully positive and enthusiastic responses from our guests, on every aspect of their experience. ...We would not be renting, if it was any other way.
3) Price: Oddly, we have been told, repetitively (by some very honest guests!) that our prices are far below comparable properties. Well, we thinks that's fine. While we feel that we are receiving a fair return on our investment, we also feel that, unfortunately, many others are over-exploiting the area travelers. Don't let our prices mislead you! It's part of having a great holiday!
