About Sven List
We are a fun loving, hard working young family in Ottawa, Canada. We live in the Capital and enjoy most weekends by the lake. In summer we are often in the water, in winter on the ski hill - throughout, we enjoy being close to nature and the outdoors. We enjoy gardening and maintaining the landscaping around the house.
Sven List purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Sven List chose Val-des-Monts
Having rented various vacation homes to understand what we like best and where we would like our vacation home, we set out to build our cottage in 2014. The structure is a traditional timber frame held together by oak pegs. To the extent possible, the materials for construction were locally sourced and we worked with many local craftsmen to shape our second home.
What makes this Cottage unique
- Natural setting, the beautiful Canadian outdoors - Modern, luxurious interiors - Direct access to beautiful Lac Dam

Fabulous lakeside property
We had a relaxing and fun vacation in this new and wonderfully designed chalet. It was very well-equipped (canoe, kayaks, dock, hot tub, trampoline, lots of sleeping space, new kitchen with everything needed). Excellent orientation information and instructions were provided -- the owner was very accommodating and available. The chalet has a minimalist vibe, very "zenlike", with beautiful and comfortable rooms and bathrooms. The lake is quiet with good swimming; the dock on the property provides a serene access point and beautiful view. The entire property, including the Chalet, provides a great package for a family vacation. We'd love to stay here again!
Amazing New Post and Beam Chalet
We are from California and were visiting our friends in Ottawa. We wanted to stay in a place that was comfortable with beautiful architecture and on a swimmable lake. This brand new chalet accommodated the seven of us with an open floor plan, nice lake acces with multiple kayaks and lots the amenities including a home theatre that provided us with nightly entertainment. Great attention to details with excellent taste in furniture and kitchen needs. Definitely an unforgettable vacation for us and our Ottawa friends. The owner was in touch with us making sure that we arrived and got situated or if we needed anything. We thank them for their hospitality and sharing their beautiful creation with us. The chalet is extremely clean and well kept and we definitely recommend other to stay and enjoy this amazing place. We spent lots of time kayaking and exploring the lake, swimming, exploring the nearby town for shopping and nearby farms for picking strawberries!
Thank you for your kind words. We’re happy that you enjoyed our lake house as much as we do. We look forward to hosting you again sometime in the near future.
Located 40 minutes from Ottawa, Canada’s capital. Our cottage provides the best of both worlds - a private setting close to nature that is still within easy driving distance to downtown Ottawa and everything the capital has to offer.
