The SpaceWelcome to Paradise!
A love at first sight purchase that will surely make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. This beautiful house is situated in the heart of the lower Laurentians, nestled in between two lakes, on the shore of the river that flows between them.
Imagine yourself sitting in front of the roaring fireplace, listening to the sound of the flowing river and the birds nesting in the trees of the wooded property. Or how about a lazy day at the lakefront, dipping yourself into the pristine water when the summer sun works its magic on your skin? Equally rewarding is a day of snowshoeing or cross country skiiing on the frozen lake or surrounding woods, topped off with a glass of wine in the jacuzzi tub built for two.
The house is just as charming as its surrounding property, if not more. A true log cabin with all the comforts of a spacious house. Built on three levels, the upper floor is devoted to the master bedroom with a king size bed and en suite bathroom, including separate shower and jacuzzi tub. The main level boasts a huge open living room, which contains more windows than walls, and when you're ready for a view other than the surrounding woods, just pull down the screen, fire up the projector system, and enjoy 100 inches of HD (3D even) quality video that will make you feel like you're in the theater. Satellite cable included.
Additionally, there is a fully-equipped, charming kitchen with red ceramic tiling and a dinning room perfect for a meal à six, or eight, or ten...you decide. On this floor, you will also find a second bathroom with a claw-foot bathtub aligning the lovely round logs of the outer wall.
The lower level contains an additional three bedrooms, one which also functions as a den (equipped with cable television). Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds and one contains a double. An extra mattress can be added to the den to make this a double room. The laundry room and a third bathroom, equipped with sink, toilet and shower are also located on this floor.
The house is light, airy, peaceful and spacious. There is ample room for cooking, relaxing, playing, eating or even dancing if you should happen to feel so inspired. You'll find everything you need, including fridge, stove, dishwasher, washer, dryer, microwave, barbeque, cooking utensils, sheets, towels and the like. There are also several games and movies for your enjoyment (the bean bag toss is quickly becoming a favorite among guests). Come empty handed and take advantage of all the amenities, hand-picked with love.
Ideal for families, gaggles of girls, romantic couple-y getaways, groups of guys who want beers, bbq-s and fire pits. Perfect for anybody really! Come once, you'll be charmed enough to come back again and again and again. I promise.
Available for short or long term stays. Guest AccessThe whole house is all yours! Interaction with GuestsI am always available through email and am just a phone call away. I am happy to help you with any questions or concerns you may have during your stay. The NeighborhoodPlease see my neighbourhood guide for areas of interest near the house. Getting AroundThis is the countryside and there isn't really any public transit available. There are daily buses from Montreal and Ottawa that go to Lachute, which is a 10 minute drive from La Maison Bleue. Other Things to NotePlease Note- There are two cats living here, usually full-time throughout spring-fall. If you are looking to book during this time, I will most likely ask if you are ok with them being here during your stay. As you can see by the reviews, they are lovely little creatures, are super independent, and spend most of their time outdoors. All you have to do is fill their bowls once a day. If you are adverse to the idea, it is negotiable.
