Our cottages in southern Québec range from 35 minutes from Ottawa to a couple of hours, but are all easily accessible. Take some time to explore the fabulous scenery, stop in charming lakeside towns and enjoy a slower pace of life. From Gatineau Park to Tremblant, you’ll find plenty to see and do.
Nestled in a postcard-perfect setting along the Gatineau River, the bilingual village of Wakefield possesses a friendly and funky atmosphere created by its diverse residents and nurtured by its surroundings. Whether you’re into nature, art, music, outdoor adventure, shopping, or fine food, you’ll fall in love with this place. Incredibly, this peaceful utopia is a mere 20 minute drive from downtown Ottawa, Canada’s capital city. A spectacular natural setting with access to a world-class city is what makes Wakefield a truly unique and remarkable village.
St-Jovite borders Route 117/Autoroute 15 from Montréal and is close to the ski village of Mt-Tremblant which is the better-known location. However, an abundance of lakes and rivers, together with activities like alpine skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, hiking, snowmobiling, biking, and golf make St-Jovite a great place to visit. There’s a delightful ambience about the village that is rich with restaurants and delightful stores.
The village at the foot of Mt-Tremblant has blossomed in the past decade to the vibrant ski resort it is today. The village is not just for winter, as the multitude of activities that take place in the spring, summer and fall attract hikers, bikers and those who just want to enjoy the clear air and fabulous scenery. Enjoy an array of restaurants for fine dining or just a snack on a patio while people-watching. Then shop in the top class stores that line the village streets. Tremblant is great for a day out any time of the year.

|Fishing on Lac Heney
Canoeing in Parc National du Mont-Tremblant. With its six great rivers and 400 lakes and streams, Parc National du Mont-Tremblant is a canoer’s paradise. This wilderness is so vast that it is home to 40 mammal species, including the wolf. There is also the Via Ferrata du Diable, an intermediate activity between hiking and climbing that will let you discover the park’s mountains in a way you could otherwise only dream about. Parc National du Mont-Tremblant is open year-round and has something for everyone
|We stopped for lunch in Gracefield at the Restaurant Smoke’n’Grill after visiting a cottage on Lac Heney. This is a pleasant restaurant with a good range of bistro-style food and friendly service.
