*** THE PROPERTY ***
Before we start, here are 3 THINGS PEOPLE LOVE about our Stylish Country Home:
1 - The area is simply amazing. As you can see from the pictures of the listing, some of the most beautiful views of the Eastern Townships are just a few minutes away from our property.
2 - Our place has recently been renovated and it has a lot of character. The beds are really comfortable and we can conformably greet several Guests. The FIREPLACE is awesome especially in wintertime and we also feature a lot of original artworks created by my boyfriend and co-owner Brad Firmino on our walls.
3 - The PINE TREE FOREST that surrounds our home is magical. Every morning we can watch the sun rise over the lake through the trees. We also have an HAMAC, FIRE PIT, and BBQ area, which is a great spot to spend time outdoors with family and friends at any time in the year.
Here are 3 THINGS TO CONSIDER before renting:
1 - We have put a lot of love in our home so NO PARTIES nor loud music or any kind of loud noise outside is permitted, out of respect for the residents living around the lake.
2 - Our country home is located in the forest. Although it is very conveniently located (5 mins from the lake, 10 mins from Owl's Head), don't expect to find Burger King on our street corner. The closest chains of restaurants can be found in Magog, which is about 20 minutes away. That said, we do have a local restaurant in the Austin village that is only located 5 mins away and you'll be pleased to know that I can guarantee the food there is awesome. A mini-SAQ, a grocery store, and two corner stores can also be found within 10 minutes drive from our house.
3 - Our kitchen has NO CONVENTIONAL OVEN. It was already like that when we bought the place and it's simply impossible to fit one in the current layout. So we use a convection oven microwave and BBQ to cook anything that can be cooked in an oven. Yes, a turkey can be cooked on the BBQ and it's delicious.
Now that this is clear, let's get to the description of the place.
