Secluded, modern, tastefully furnished, open concept, lakefront cottage one hour drive from Ottawa. Nestled in the heart of the outaouais, 15 minutes from Mont St. Marie and surrounded by countless rivers, bike, ski and sled trails, this cottage is ideally located for people who enjoy an active four season lifestyle but desire peace and tranquility at the end of the day.
If you have any questions, please email (EMAIL HIDDEN) and we will get back to you as soon as we can. If you experience any plumbing, heating, electrical, etc. type issues during your stay, please contact Wendy at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) and she will dispatch her handyman husband to help you out.
The rental fee includes bath and hand towels and standard amenities. We try to anticipate most of your needs to make your stay as comfortable and convenient as possible. You will find soap, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer and basic first aid items. In terms of sleeping arrangements, there are two twin beds in the loft and queen sized beds in both bedrooms. We supply all the bedding for the twin beds. For the queen beds, we supply bedding (i.e., duvets and pillows) but not bed sheets or pillow cases, so please ensure you bring your own from home.
We ask that you leave the cottage in as close to the same state of cleanliness as you found it. If you do use the twin beds in the loft, please strip them and leave the sheets, pillow cases and any dirty towels in the laundry hampers by the washing machine in the downstairs bathroom.
We love animals and so the cottage is dog friendly but please do not allow your puppy on the furniture. If your dog should be sneaky that way (like ours), please use the vacuum and sticky rollers to clean up any fur from the furniture, and special pet cleaning products (they are provided) to remove any resulting stains. If you leave your dog in the cottage unattended for any length of time, please close the bedroom doors. For the consideration of all those in bare feet and flip flops, please pick up after your pet. It is recommended that you administer tick repellent to your pet prior to your arrival. Ticks are common in this area and can cause severe illness. The cottage owners assume no responsibility for illness or injury that pets may suffer while on the premises.
Children under the age of 12 are only permitted in the hot tub under parental supervision. Use the hot tub at your own risk. We drain, sanitize, refill and replenish chemicals in the hot tub prior to your arrival therefore it may not reach the desired temperature until several hours after your arrival. When not using the hot tub please leave the cover on so it will remain at the desired temperature. Note: hot tub covers are for insulation purposes and are not designed to support the weight of even a small child.
WOOD STOVE AND FIRE PIT
It is not permitted to use the wood stove between May and September but there is a fire pit on the north side of the cottage. Fire wood is supplied and kindling is abundant in the form of downed branches throughout the property. Please ensure that your campfire is fully extinguished before retiring for the night.
WATER AND SEPTIC
This cottage is on a well and septic system. The water has been tested and is pristine in every respect. The septic system is very effective but please be mindful that it can be overtaxed by excessive toilet paper usage. Do not flush any products other than toilet paper down the toilets. They can clog the septic system, which can potentially ruin your holiday.
There are two canoes for your enjoyment. Two adult life jackets are supplied. You are responsible for any additional jackets you may require.
