This open-concept high-vibe home is surrounded by trees on a 1 acre lot near the edge of Gatineau Park and has been described as a little castle in the woods. It’s a 45 minute drive from the city and includes a gazebo with a lounging area, a guest cabin and a wood-fired sauna for an outdoor spa-like experience. The many windows allow connection to the outdoors. Events and parties are not allowed.

CITQ establishment number: 300489.

Le logement
It is a modern open-concept house built on top of a log cabin that has been described as a forest retreat or a castle in the woods thanks to its design and eclectic decor touches.

3 night minimum weeknights, 2 nights weekends.

This is my principle residence and not my cottage or vacation home.

This house is ideal to get out of the city and enjoy being in an airy and uplifting house surrounded by nature with lots of outdoor space. The open-concept promotes interaction. Many outdoor activities available in Gatineau Park and in the surrounding area described in detail in the "Location" section below in both winter and summer. I make sure my home is always sparking clean.

There is a 65 inch TV with an AppleTV device with Youtube, Netflix, Crave and Prime and a SOMA radio app with various musical genres. You can copy your phone to the tv through the Apple TV device or send music through bluetooth to the soundbar (Visio brand). There is no cable or satellite.

Cookware and plenty of white everyday dinnerware and flatware are provided, including a French Press coffeemaker and a coffee grinder, a slow cooker and wineglasses. The well water is very good, it goes through sediment and ultraviolet light filters.

The large regal table and french country chairs can comfortably seat 8, and also available for use is a set of rich gold-accented porcelaine china dinnerware for exactly 8 including Wallace Hotel heavyweight vintage style flatware inspired from ornate patterns used in luxury hotels of the past for setting a lux table for special dinners.

The bedrooms in the house are semi-private lofts. There are several privacy screens and curtains. The separate guest cabin is insulated and heated and can be used in winter.

There are 2 toilets, one in a powder room and one in the shower room which has a heated floor and towel bar. This house is on a septic system. There is also an outhouse with a waterless ecological Sun-Mar brand composting toilet. I leave a basket with different shower gels and shampoos in the shower room and you can also bring your own of course. Biodegradble products are favoured. The tub is in the upstairs master bedroom. Towels provided.

The sauna can be used all year, you must bring your own firewood for the sauna which you can find sold in plastic bags at hardware and convenience stores since regular firewood is too large for the sauna stove. The outdoor shower is operational from June to September. The Gazebo is a great place to have meals, practice yoga and meditation or have an afternoon nap. Many of my guests have enjoyed practicing morning yoga outside on the grass or in the gazebo.

There is a large workspace for 2 to 3 people on the second level which faces the large windows, and is suitable for teleworking. For wifi, I have an average plan which is sufficient for zoom video conferences. Cellular reception is not very good but there is a signal booster at the large upstairs work desk for 2. Outside the house the cell signal is generally good.

For the summer, there is no air conditioning but being out of the city it usually cools down considerably at night. You can keep the house cool by opening windows at night and closing them in the morning. I provide a fan beside each bed. I recommend you check the weather forecast for Pontiac Quebec. In the winter, the house is heated with electric baseboard heaters and of course the wood stove really makes the place cosy. The fall is amazing here and the winter is magical. I will provide you with a fixed amount amount of firewood for the wood stove as long as you commit using it appropriately and safely, which should be plenty for your stay.

While my property may seem suitable for a large gathering or event, parties and events are not allowed. Only guests who are included in the rental of my house and property can use the property and its facilities. You must also ensure that you observe any covid restrictions that may be in place at the time of your stay.

No pets, no smoking in the house, and no visitors or guests who are not included in the rental, thank you!

Où se situe le logement

Luskville, Québec, Canada

The Pontiac is the western border of Gatineau Park, between the park and the Ottawa River. Gatineau Park is largely considered one of the treasures of the Ottawa valley.

Summer activities in Gatineau Park include swimming at beaches of LaPêche and Phillippe lakes, visiting the MacKenzie King estate, walk around Pink Lake, visiting the Lusk caves, driving up to the Champlain Belvedere, and much more. In the Winter the park has numerous groomed paths for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

In Luskville, I recommend the challenging but rewarding hike up the Luskville falls (10 min drive from the house).

You can drive through gatineau park via the Chemin Eardley-Masham to the vacation town of Wakefield and walk to its historic covered bridge, swim in the river, rent a kayak or bike, shop at its great boutiques such as Khewa, Jamboree and the Pirate's antiques, eat at it's great restaurants like Le Hibou, walk up Mill street to the old mill which is now a hotel/spa/restaurant. Other nearby suggestions are to get ice cream at La Cigale in Chelsea.. In Fort Coulonge, one hour west, there is amazing zip-lining above the Coulonge falls and canyon.

Also in Winter, there is downhill skiing at Camp Fortune, Vorlage or Edelweiss, skating through the forest, especially candlelit nights in the nearby town of Lac Des Loups.

Downtown Ottawa is 45 minutes away down highway 148, that has great views of the gatineau hills and the Ottawa river.
