8 person maximum, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms.
Access this magnificent property through a majestic gate, walk along a tree-lined driveway and discover our spacious and cozy chalet below, set on the edge of the superb Desert Lake.
It welcomes you summer and winter for your family holidays or for a weekend with friends.
Nestled in a calm bay on the privileged peninsula of Lac Désert, out of sight and on a large wooded lot, the location is ideal for enjoying nature at your own pace.
Your days will be well filled with the many activities available on site:
In summer, the crystal clear waters of the lake invite you to swim from the private beach. A fishing kayak, a paddle, two canoes and a rowboat await you near the wharf. You can also moor your motor boat at the quay. (Between Thanksgiving weekend and Patriots weekend, we cannot guarantee that the dock will be installed and that watercraft will be available)
Mechanical sports enthusiasts can easily reach the 150 km circuit that winds through the Laurentians with their quad.
Finally, nature lovers can admire the different species of animals visible on the property, or take superb walks within the Papineau - Labelle wildlife reserve, of which La Minerve is a gateway.
In the evening, an aperitif by the lake, a game of pétanque or even a BBQ are available to you.
In addition, we are in contact with a seaplane pilot, based at nearby Castor Lake, who can, on request, show you the region from the air for a ride of one hour or more.
On the program in winter: tobogganing down the chalet, snowshoeing on the frozen lake, cross-country skiing on the 35 km of trails maintained by the local club, or snowmobiling through the 150 km of marked trails in the region.
At nightfall, you will be spoiled for choice between an open-air spa with a view of the lake, an outdoor or indoor fireplace, a board game around the very large table in the living room or even watching a movie on the big screen TV with sound bar.
This magnificent chalet is located 7 minutes by car from the village of La Minerve and 35 minutes by car from the international resort of Mont-Tremblant which is full of sports activities, restaurants and other leisure activities: downhill skiing, dog sledding, karting , spas, casino, via ferrata, golf, etc.
At the crossroads of many paths and trails, this very picturesque village offers all the amenities: gas station, 2 bakeries, grocery store with SAQ, fishing and hunting supplies, restaurant, library, and numerous sports facilities (winter toboggan run and municipal ice rink, summer tennis, baseball, soccer...)
The entrance to the chalet opens onto a very large open area including the "living room / tv" area with its gas fireplace, the dining room with a very large table, and the fully equipped open kitchen. This common area is very bright thanks to its many bay windows overlooking the lake and the forest, including a patio door leading to the terrace.
On the other side of the kitchen and completing this space, a 4-season solarium veranda, ideal for relaxing, provides access to the outdoor spa.
The master suite and its huge bathroom with shower and whirlpool bath are also on this level.
In the center of this space, a majestic wrought iron staircase, brought from India, starts from the basement, crosses the ground floor and goes up to the equally bright mezzanine.
The vast open space of the mezzanine allows you to do your sports and stretching sessions (mat with dumbbells) or to isolate yourself to read and/or work.
The family room serves two bedrooms and the bathroom, and also allows you to watch a movie on the big screen from a DVD player.
A neat decoration gives this chalet a warm atmosphere.
Air conditioning, underfloor heating and fireplaces ensure a comfortable indoor temperature throughout the year.
