I can’t remember a time when I didn’t dream about owning a lakefront cottage.

That dream became reality last year when we purchased Daffodil Cottage in the Laurentian Mountains north of Montreal, Canada.

To put it mildly, it’s been challenging. We bought the proverbial “DUMP-in-a-great-location”. We have spent the better part of this year spending a king’s ransom on the new septic, water system, and interior renovations. Next year we will tackle the exterior!

Our charming little chalet is adjacent to the enchanting village of St. Jovite; and only 10 minutes from the world-renowned Mont-Tremblant ski village.

Come visit … and bring your friends! A word of advice: you may want to brush up on your French: the region is 97% Francais!
