10/10 Excellent

Francoise M.

Beautiful and exactly as advertised
This is a perfect lake retreat and a wonderful host. The home has everything that you need, and is immaculately clean but also very comfortable to relax, make a fire, put your feet up. Lots of different living spaces for everyone to have their little spot to relax. The only note for people who have limited mobility are the stairs to access the home are not suitable for anyone who isn't fully mobile. I would stay here again without a moment's hesitation.

Quick getaway
This was the perfect place to relax and recharge. A beautiful, comfortable home with every detail considered. Close enough to the city, but a world away. Enjoyed hiking Blanchet trail and the view of the lake from the dock.

Great location.
Skiing was fantastic this past weekend. Both down hill and cross country trails were perfect. The property was ideally located to town and shops.

Lac Meech
We stayed at this beautiful home a few years back and returned again. Everything was just as nice. Meech Lake is very peaceful, mostly without motor boats and Gatineau is magical. Nancy's place is a wonderful as ever.
