Vue d'en eau
This rental is a private room within the owner’s home. The house is located on a farm, allowing for interactions with the animals that live there, such as ponies and goats and plenty of room for any youngsters to run around away from potential traffic.
Use of the kitchen is available and the owner will happily provide breakfast daily.
The blue room
For a stay on the simpler side, this cottage isn’t to be missed. Follow the well-maintained dirt access road for about 5km (3 miles), and you will be greeted by a rustic cabin that just screams (or perhaps whispers) solitude. Here, you will trade in modern conveniences like electricity and running water for the chance to “rough it” while still having a sound structure overhead. The cabin does include an indoor heat source and the equipment needed to cook, and the use of a vegetable garden to keep your meals fresh and delicious. A queen and two single beds make up the sleeping arrangements, room enough for up to four people. Don’t be surprised, though, if you wake up to a few extra guests outside; deer and moose frequent the area and often stop by for an early morning drink from the lake beside the cabin.
