“Our group of 12 had a wonderful time at Michel's cottage. Its secluded setting on a private lake with only the sounds of nature (and his 2 curious chickens) provided the perfect backdrop for a relaxing stay away from the bustle of the city. There's something here for everyone - from a hot tub, board games, big screen TV, kayaks, and pedal boats - that we could have easily spent a week longer and still have things to fill our days. The kitchen is also one of the better equipped kitchens I have seen compared to other cottages I have stayed at in the past. Michel is a wonderful, friendly, and attentive host. He is very knowledgeable about what the area has to offer, and quick to respond to requests and inquiries. Some members of our group were interested in fishing and he was able to provide them information about local spots that landed them some wonderful catches. It was clear to us how much love and attention he has devoted to his cottage, and with future additions planned we would love to come back again.”
This is a cozy cabin nestled on a large wooded lot surrounded with white pine and also red pine trees standing approximately 60 to 80 feet tall. It's a 3 bedroom bungalow with a porch looking out on Lake Temiscamingue where you will enjoy the spectacular views of the sunset. The location is on highway 101 at 27 km from the town of Temiscaming, Quebec. Great for those seeking calm, adventure, recharging your batteries and relax.
“We had a wonderful week at Lisca's cottage and we hope to return in the future. The setting is gorgeous, the cottage is overlooking the lake with westerly views. Aside from the hint of Lisca's cottage shown in the listing, you can't see any visible neighbors from the cottage. There is a ridge to the north and east which makes it very private and peaceful. You cannot hear any road traffic and there is very little boat traffic on the lake. The beach is quiet, peaceful, and spacious, about 200 metres from Lisca's dock to the neighbours to the north. The grounds include a separate firepit, sitting area, picnic area, bbq and clothesline. The outdoor shower was easy to use. We were welcome to use Lisca and Tim's canoe, rowboat or kayak and we used their canoe. There is great fishing on the lake. We caught nice sized bass from the dock and another nearby in the canoe as well as some whitefish. Inside the cottage we found everything we needed. The furniture is very comfortable and there are lots of extra pillows and blankets. All of the furnishings gave it a classic cottage feel, but all of the appliances were new and in great shape. We loved sitting on the sun deck and there is also a great view of the lake from the living room so you can enjoy it even while sitting by the woodstove. There is also a stereo system that is ready for you to plug your iphone or laptop into. Lisca and Tim were very friendly and helpful. On our first day, they took us on a pontoon ride to Hidden Lake and a gorgeous waterfall across the lake, which is primarily Crown Land. Nearby - La Bannick restaurant has an amazing view and good food. It's beside Fort Temiscaming historic site. There is also another gorgeous waterfall in nearby Laniel which you can either drive to or hike in to called La Grand Chute (we drove). Temiscaming Subway is actually in a train car and overlooking the river. Ville Marie is a nice town to visit and it has a movie theatre. ”
“Private waterfront property, located on the historic Mattawa River, overlooking the Ottawa River and nestled beneath the breathtaking Laurentian Mountains. Western exposure with incredible sunsets. Excellent fishing in both rivers. Quiet area, playground across the road and all the amenities of a small town are only minutes, or walking distance away. A very “Friendly Community”, one of Ontario’s “Best Kept Secrets”
“Mark's cottage is nestled in a cozy little town filled with friendly people and breathtaking beauty. The cottage itself has everything you need for a lovely getaway. Mark, the host replied quickly to all my questions and provided helpful local tips making our stay a huge success, such as the art gallery. Beautiful paintings where i found a perfect souvenir. Finally, thoughtful touches such as a bottle of wine were above and beyond!”
