Charming Summer Home With Waterfront on Meech Lake - 25min to Ottawa

Ski-in/ski-out access for family fun on the slopes
Meech Lake Retreat is a country home located 25 Minutes from Downtown Ottawa in the heart of the Gatineau Park It has a beautiful dock with 2 kayaks and a canoe on Meech lake - 10 Minutes from Chelsea, Quebec. 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8. This is a dog friendly vacation rental - Dogs are welcome upon review. Originally built as a summer home in the late 40's, this is one of the original Meech Lake county homes. Situated in the center of a wooded 2-acre lot. It is easily accessed by car and has lots of parking by the house. The large, private property features a cement patio with BBQ surrounded by gardens and sweeping lawns leading down to the road and across to the Lake. The lake front has a seating area and a short set of stairs leading down to the water where the boats are kept. There is NO public motor boat launch so there are few motor boats. Long-distance swimmers do the length of the lake in the morning, later on kayaks, canoes and paddleboards are common sights. The house, with its period construction and country gardens, is an ideal setting from which to enjoy not only the lake, but the beauty and splendor of Gatineau Park, Chelsea and the attractions of downtown Ottawa. Situated beside cycling trails and some of the best hiking trails in the region Meech Lake Retreat is only a 20-minute drive to some of Canada's renown National museums and galleries. A morning adventure to Ottawa's By Ward Market or National Art Gallery and an afternoon on the dock sipping a cocktail or kayaking is so easy from here. For a closer adventure take a 10-minute drive to Chelsea, home of Le Spa Nordik offering complete pampering and a unique day spa experience. Grocery shopping in Chelsea is a gastronomic delight featuring world class take-out foods from Les Fougeres, Le Boucanerie, The Old Chelsea Market, Le Resto, Pizza Luigi's and Chelsea Schwarma. For your staples we have a unique Fresh Mart which carries a large assortment of organic and gluten free foods. The house comes with all the amenities. The kitchen is well equipped with refrigerator/freezer, a gas range, microwave oven, drinks fridge and washer/dryer. Outdoors, there is a large patio with BBQ and seating surrounded by gardens, mature trees and a large lawn. The Sun Room is on the south-east side of the house and is fully screened - perfect for relaxing. During the summer the owners of the property live in the adjacent studio-suite. All of the vacation home amenities are for use by those renting the home and the owners will not intrude on your very special vacation. Stunning in the Fall, the woods of the Gatineau Hills come alive with colour and the hiking is amazing in the crisp air. During the winter months, the adjacent trails are fully groomed for nordic skiing. There is a designated snowshoe trail further along the lake, 1km away. The lake does freeze over and skating is possible at times but nordic skiing across the lake is a wonderful experience. Make sure the weather has been cold enough to freeze the lake fully. Coming back to the property to curlup by one of the fires with a hot drink is just divine.

Great family cottage, full of nooks and crannies and lots of places to socialize or to sit with a book on your own. We were 5 adults and everyone said they would come again. Kitchen had everything we needed which was great because we did a lot of cooking.
