About Christian Boucher

I'm a professional coach and management consultant living in Magog who likes having fun, travelling and meeting new people and friends.

Christian Boucher purchased this chalet in 2016

Why Christian Boucher chose Orford

I plan to move to this cottage when the kids wil have leave the house. I like the place because it needs a minimum of work to take care of. Its main usage was a tourism residence so it will pay by itself untill I move there. At that time I plan to continue to rent it while I will be travelling.

What makes this chalet unique

It is a very quiet place near to everything . (Ski, Golf, Cycling path, horse shoe, day to day personal needs) Lakefront and well oriented to maximise the view

Great location.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at "Chalet au lac de l'Écluse" March, 2018 for the Ontario school March break.

Booking on-line with Christian was very easy. He met us at the cottage at agreed upon time and walked us through his property. Very pleasant.

The property is well maintained and well equipped. We were there for a ski vacation and ate all breakfasts and dinners in. The kitchen had everything you could want. Even had some spices, etc. in case you forgot something at home.

Travelling with two teenagers and all agreed that beds were very comfortable.

Shower in master bathroom (upstairs in loft) was hit with all.

There is a wood burning fireplace but we did not use.

Centrally located:

- 10 min to grocery store in Magog

- 1 hr to Jay Peak and Mont Sutton

- 10 min to Orford ski hill

- 30 min to Owl's Head ski hill

Significant snowfall on a couple of days. Access road to cottage area and stairs/walkway shovelled by service providers before we departed for the hill (and we left pretty early).

Great stay - Thanks Christian.

Great adventure

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in Magog. This was such a quiet, peaceful setting. We used the paddle boat Christian had available several times. The house was in perfect condition - clean and well stocked. We could not have asked for more.

Outstanding and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We spent an all too short five days at this lovely property in Orford, Quebec. The gardens and expansive lawn offer a view of the river and adjacent Mount Orford. The community is pristinely clean and well maintained. The condo offered everything one might need for cooking and eating in, with all of the staples and spices provided. I would highly recommend this wonderful condo in the Eastern Townships. Christian readily responded to questions and met us when we checked in. A stress-free and worry-free rental experience. Thank you so much.

Condo defines adorable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent the weekend at the condo. Christian was incredibly helpful and responsive. We arrrived late on Friday so he left the key. He also came on Saturday to make sure that everything was working ok for us. The condition of the unit was impeccable. The layout was perfect for the 5 of us (we originally booked for 3 but when my sister saw the pictures she and her daughter came as well). The beds were comfy and everything worked perfectly. When we got up on Saturday morning we were treated to a lovely view of the lake. There was an outside table and seating to enjoy coffee while enjoying the view. (btw the coffee maker is a Tassimo so you may want to bring along capsules). There is also a regular drip coffee maker. It's a quick ride down to Magog which has many cafes, restaurants, ice cream places... We also had breakfast at a close by restaurant Chez Papie that has Eggs Benedict to die for. Thin sliced Canadian bacon, not the thick tough slabs you generally get in the US. We would definitely go back, we even checked for the 4th of July (kind of want to NOT be in the US this 4th...) but they were already booked.
