Relax and Rejunenate at Friendly Fires Getaway
Size –4 Bedrooms • 3 Bathrooms • Sleeps 2-8
Situated on beautiful Grand Lake in Quebec’s Gatineau Hills, only 40 minutes from Ottawa, this fully self contained, architect designed cottage is the perfect four season getaway to truly relax and kick back. In winter, you are on the doorstep of the National Capital's premier cross country ski trail (Nakkertok) and 15 minutes from Edelweiss and Mont Cascades for downhill skiing.
Start your day watching a magnificent sunrise over the morning mists of Grand Lake from our huge wrap around cedar deck where you can enjoy breakfast outdoors - just footsteps from the lake's edge. After breakfast, dive in to the lake for a refreshing early morning swim, suntan on the large dock, take a sauna to warm up as you contemplate your day, or relax in the eight person hot tub overlooking the lake.
Grand Lake is one of the most sought after areas in the region for good reason. It is a large lake with clean water that connects to Dam Lake, an adjacent lake with water access. The cottage is located near the village of Perkins which has a grocery store, butcher, hardware store, pharmacy and restaurant/bar only 8 km away. It is close to local golf courses, horseback riding, Lafleche caves and an aerial park. It is 15 minutes from 2 popular ski hills, Monts Cascade and Edelweiss, as well as the famous village of Wakefield.
The Outaouais and West Quebec areas are rich in historic, cultural, and linguistic diversity. The region is geographically remarkable and huge incorporating over half a million square kilometers of the Canadian Shield with over 20,000 lakes, three major rivers and cradling National Capital Commissions' Gatineau Park. This region boasts some of best year-round outdoor lifestyle and entertainment activities in the world. Ottawa-Gatineau are within an easy commuting distance, as are skiing, cycling, golf, swimming, hiking and other year-round activities.
About the Owner
I have a design and construction background. I love to do both. I also, like to share my work with you the renter. This was an treed lot in 2005, I started this project from scratch. I did not initially intend to rent it, but as time went by, I decided to add this element to my project. I am pleased I did. I have been doing this now for several years, and I have a following for the cottage. I enjoy the complements, and I enjoy adding features yearly, and knowing that my customers will enjoy the new features. I think they look forward to what is new for the season. I have many new projects and features to add, and look forward to sharing them.
