  • How do I reserve a chalet?
    Contact us by email at or by phone at 514-969-3677 (Sharon or Howard) when you're ready and we'll begin the process. We will just need some contact information from you, and we will email you documents for your reservation. This includes a rental agreement, a map of the chalet, and a list of supplies to help you pack. To book, we just need your: -Last name -Home Address -Work / Home / Cellular numbers (whichever is best) -Number of people in your group -Number of day or night visitors -Number of animals (if applicable)
  • What down payment is required to reserve?
    We require a down payment of 50% of the total rental amount to reserve a chalet. The balance owing would be due 2-6 weeks prior to arrival, depending on the season.
  • What payment forms do you accept?
    We can accept: Interac Email Money Transfers Direct Bank Deposits at any TD bank near your location Cheques Bank Wire Transfers (USA or International) Other forms of payment may be accepted upon request (cash, Xoom, Western Union, etc), please inquire.
  • What time is check-in/check-out?
    This will depend on the season and on the house, so please inquire. I will say that we always try to be as flexible and accommodating as possible. If you have the day off and can come early on your arrival date, if the house is available, no problem! If you would like to stay later on your check-out day to enjoy the afternoon, we can usually make that happen too. As long as no other group is arriving that day. In July and August or other holiday periods when we have back to back rentals each week, check-in is either 3 or 4 pm, and check out is either 11 am or noon, depending on the house.
  • Do you charge a cleaning fee?
    No, we don't. But we do ask that the cottage be left in a respectable condition - dishes washed or dishwasher set, garbage put away, surfaces tidy, and if pets were present, that they be cleaned up after indoors (including any fur) and outdoors. We don't ask for extreme cleaning - this is your vacation! We understand that. But just common respect and decency so that there is not excessive work after your departure. If excessive cleaning is required, fees may apply.
  • Do you take a Refundable Security Deposit?
    Yes, we do. The amount varies, but it is anywhere from $250-$1000, very occasionally it's more depending on the exact rental situation and house involved. Security Deposits are returned via Interac e-Transfer unless other arrangements are made. Typically they are refunded within 48-72 hours of departure.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    Cancellations are actually exceedingly rare. But if they do happen, we reserve the right to keep the deposit. However, with that said, we will work with you to find another solution. If there is still time, we will re-advertize the chalet and if we successfully rebook it, we will refund that amount to you (minus an admin fee). If your cancellation is so last minute that a re-booking option is not possible, we will work with you to arrange your stay for another standby time, and your deposit can be used in full for that stay (minus an admin fee). COVID CANCELLATION: If the government does not allow me to rent my chalet to anyone, we are shut by the government to everyone, I will refund your money in full. If you are required to cancel on your end for any reason regarding covid, but I can rent to other groups, I will attempt to re-rent the chalet to another group to return your funds (minus an admin fee). If the cancellation is so last minute that rebooking is impossible, I will provide a credit for a standby stay for another time (minus an admin fee).
  • Why are detailed rates not on your site?
    The short answer? I really want to give you the best rate possible! Sometimes I have last minute specials, or season based specials, or because of dates, can offer alternate dates less expensively that may suit just as well. Or maybe I have a less expensive house that's a better fit for you. Or is available! Robot rate calculators just don't offer all those options with their standard rates. Feel free to call or text anytime at 514-969-3677 or send a quick email to Please always include your exact dates and number of people in your group (adults/children) so I can see what works best for you.
  • Do you rent weekly or weekends?
    We rent short term - weekly, weekend, long weekends, typically a minimum of 2 nights. Occasionally monthly or seasonally. If you would like a longer term stay in the summer, it would be our weekly rate x number of weeks, minus the taxes. We do not rent annually.
  • How do we get the keys on arrival?
    NOTE: During COVID, we have modified our normal policy of meeting in person. With Covid, we have a contactless arrival in place where the house will be fully pre-prepared for you, and you can just arrive at the house and start your stay and we can communicate by phone or text. We send you a detailed letter about the house with entry instructions etc and we are always available during your stay - a phone call or text away.
  • Do you allow pets?
    Yes we do! We are pet friendly at all of our lakefront chalets. We do ask though that owners care for their dogs at the chalet like they do in their own homes - cleaning up after outside, cleaning dog fur inside, limiting chance of barking or any disturbances to others. The only dogs we cannot accept are dogs that bark all day as they are a disturbance to the peace.
  • What is included in the rental?
    As far as amenities, all chalets have, at a minimum, Wifi, Roku smart TV's with Netflix streaming, non-motorized boats (canoes/kayaks) in season, firepits, fireplaces and Weber BBQ's. All chalets except West Shore have hot tubs. As far as supplies, we supply all linens for beds. Kitchens come all equipped, and dishwashers/washer dryers are at all 4 and 5 bedroom houses. What is not supplied is bath and hand towels, lifejackets, and consumables such as garbage bags, paper towels, soaps, grocery items, etc. We provide a complete list of what is supplied and not supplied at each chalet upon reservation so that you can feel secure in your packing. There is excellent shopping closeby in Ste Agathe des Monts - groceries are open 8 am-10 pm 7 days a week, all year long. Wal Mart (with grocery option) is available in Ste Agathe des Monts as well.
  • Do you have rental terms and conditions?
    We sign a lease agreement upon renting a chalet. This specifies the terms of the rental. We do have other general policies in place as well. No smoking indoors. No loud music or noise that can disturb the peace at any time of the day or night (sound travels easily on lakes even if we are private from neighbours). The consequence for disturbance of the peace can be loss of security deposit and/or eviction. We want you to have a good time, but we also need you to respect our property, our neighbours and our environment.
