We are a family of five. With children aged 21-26, my wife and I enjoy the house throughout the majority of the year. We enjoy taking advantage of the bike trails as well as the lake to either canoe or simply enjoy the scenery. The lake provides a communal B.B.Q which is great during the summer. We also enjoy the many activities throughout the town of Tremblant such as skiing, snowshoeing, and the movie festivals.

This is a perfect home for those seeking a cozy atmosphere where the sounds of nature fill the air. The option to venture out for excitement is close enough so that one doesn't feel too secluded, yet nestled nicely into the woods so that one feels in tune with nature.
