Escape to the beautiful lakefront community of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, just over an hour north of Montreal in the ancient Laurentian Mountains well known for it's vast forests, lakes but also endless recreational opportunity, and vibrant cultural offerings.
This three story Franco-Canadiana house was once an English boarding school for boys and has since been lovingly converted to a beautiful and comfortable home with traditional French Canadian styling and modern luxuries. There are three very large bedrooms and there is the possibility sleeping as many as twelve. On the main floor, you will find a huge contemporary kitchen, with all amenities required for a discerning stay-at-home chef. The open concept layout leads from the kitchen to the large dining area and great room, complete with a real wood burning stone fireplace. Relax in comfort with spectacular views of the famous Lac des Sables on one side, and untouched Quebec forest on the other.
There are two very spacious and modern bathrooms, one on the main floor with a large, fabulous Jacuzzi tub, and the other on the third floor, a lovely shower. There is an abundance of storage and closet space throughout the house. Entry from the lower level provides a great place to clean up your gear, store your skis, hiking boots, or snow shoes. There is also a large games room, great for kids or playful adults, with a huge table tennis facility set up for hours of fun on a rainy day! There is a secondary living room on this floor as well, which offers comfy sofas and additional sleeping areas if you have a really large group.
In addition to the living room, kitchen and dining area, the main floor of the house also contains a spacious full bathroom and a bedroom with two twin beds.
The third floor of the house consists of a small sitting and reading area, as well as a huge master bedroom with a wonderful king size bed. The views from this room are serene and will give you the impression of sleeping amongst the trees. A second bedroom consisting of two double beds is also located on this floor.
Adjacent to the house is a small art studio for the owner of the property who lives in the house next door. It is a private, bright studio, often with colourful pieces of regionally inspired pieces on display or in development.
While staying here, enjoy direct access to Lac des Sables, with a private path linking the property to the shore of the lake where you will find a dock with a paddle boat and kayaks for your use. Take a lovely walk around the bay and you will be in the heart of the village in little time, with access to postal service, cafés, great restaurants, a library, theatre, banks, grocery stores, bakeries, etc. Truly an ideal setting for getting a taste of Canadian wilderness, while still being able to enjoy the benefits of civilization when you really want to.
The Ville de Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts runs a winter carnival for the entire winter season, and a summer festival throughout the summer. Summer activities include hiking, swimming, fishing, kayaking, etc. In the winter, enjoy snowshoeing, world class cross country skiing, and skating on the beautiful lake. It's a short drive to Mont-Blanc ski resort and about a half hour to the world famous Mont-Tremblant ski resort.
Life on chemin Tour du Lac is fabulous and you will love your time experiencing the quietude and serenity of Quebec village life. Let us welcome you!
It is possible to make transportation arrangements with us from the airport in Montreal, or from the central city. Given the proximity of this lovely house to the village, it is not always necessary to have a car with you.

Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour!!! Merci!!!
I had a fantastic stay with my family from Scotland. It is a beautiful, clean, scenic place and we'll be back! Thank you!
Nous avons passé une super semaine dans ce chalet à Sainte-Agathe des Monts! Le chalet est situé idéalement au bord du lac, à quelques minutes en voiture du centre-ville de Sainte-Agathe. A proximité, différentes stations qui nous ont permis de pratiquer divers sports d'hiver et de découvrir la magnifique région des Laurentides!
Le chalet est spacieux, et on s'y sent tout de suite "à la maison"!
Le propriétaire habite à quelques mètres du chalet, et est très disponible en cas de besoin.
Nous recommandons cet endroit pour un séjour familial agréable!
Beautiful property, great stay!
Great place with lots of space, bedrooms are huge, everything is clean. Well located, the host is really friendly, and helpful. He is also really flexible on the schedule, which is appreciated when you have a baby...
Our stay was just too short, we could play the ping-pong for only 5 minutes, so we decided we will come back !
Nothing but praise for the process, the host/hostess, the accommodation and the experience!
We went for a long wknd with my family and parents (4 adults, 3 kids ages 7, 9, 12) and the kids never wanted to leave the house! They tobogganed outside on the property for hours, played ping-pong, board games and loved exploring the forest.
We thought we had brought everything that we needed but ended up forgetting a couple little things but no worries - the place was stocked! We ate all our meals around the beautiful table and enjoyed making our own fires and conversing around the fireplace. It was a short distance to town so the kids could enjoy the Winter Festival that was on and we could easily drive to the cross-country skiing area to rent equipment.
The hostess/host were great and although they spoke mostly French and us mostly English we really didn't have any problems communicating. The host made sure the driveway and sidewalks were always shoveled, even as there were 2 days of heavy snowfall while we were there. He even did our van!
Our kids were very disappointed that we had to leave, and so were the adults. It was a beautiful location and a great experience. We're already talking about coming back in the summer and staying here again!!!
Had an amazing time.Thanks! everything we needed (and more!) was provided; host was very friendly and helpful. Most everything was recently renovated. One thing to note is that only half the cottage shown on the first picture is available, the other half being a private studio. Better take that into consideration if you're planning a huge party. Otherwise, everything was great.
