About Sherrill Ryan and Roger Ouellette

retired school teachers

Sherrill Ryan and Roger Ouellette purchased this house in 2004

Why Sherrill Ryan and Roger Ouellette chose Quebec

This country waterfront home is 4 seasons and provides a great place for our children and grandchildren to enjoy. It is perfect for family gatherings at any time of year. Of note is that the roads are paved all the way from the city and they are plowed early in the winter months to accommodate school buses.

What makes this house unique

The pines, oaks, maples that give us shade in summer, unrelenting beauty in spring and fall and protection from the elements in winter. The main floor is all one needs to live comfortably while the loft and walkout level are private places for our guests.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week in this beautiful, clean and spacious home on the lake. We were 10 - 6 adults and 4 young children. Everything we needed was there including loads of indoor and outdoor toys and lots of place for kids to play. The kids aged 3 - 9 all thoroughly enjoyed jumping off the dock and swimming in the lake. Sherrill and Roger provided a canoe and two kayaks as well as life jackets for all, and a plastic raft and swimming noodles for the kids. We could not have found a nicer place for our family vacation and so close to Ottawa. The house is so spacious that you can always find a quiet corner to read or just spend some quiet time. There are 64 stairs between the beach and the house, but it presented no problem even for the little ones. Thank you Sherrill and Roger for the use of your lovely lake house.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home last year and went back again for our family get-together of 10 people. Love the space, the cleanliness, the huge deck, large kitchen and a dining table that sits everyone. The beds were comfortable and every couple had their own room. Very relaxing, since you don't hear a thing except for the birds. Lots of parking also. We will be returning for sure. Places like this one don't come around very often especially since it's close to the Ottawa/Gatineau area. Thanks again Sherrill and Roger. 😀😎

Thanksgiving Thanks!

  • 5 of 5

We had one more thing to be thankful for this weekend - Roger and Sherrill's lovely home on MacGregor Lake. It was the perfect spot for the blending of our families (wedding in June!). The home is so well set up, the beds are cozy and plentiful, and the lake, well, it is spectacular. Thanks so much for trusting us with your oasis ;-)

Family reunion venue

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 10 adults from Japan, Virginia, Ontario and Quebec had a super week. Everything we needed for the cooks, the fishers, swimmers, bookworms, etc. was available. Beds are comfortable. there is plenty of space for dining, game playing and " getting away from it all" . Easy access to Ottawa for a taste of city. Should point out there is a steep walk down to the beach so take that into consideration. A super spot for our reunion.
