A stylish COUNTRY HOME located at a five minute walk from the Memphremagog Lake and at a 10 minute drive from the Orford and Owl's Head ski resorts. This space is perfect for friends and family who want to spend a quiet & quality stay at the center of everything in the Townships.
Before we start, here are 3 THINGS PEOPLE LOVE about our Stylish Country Home:
1 - The AREA is simply amazing. As you can see from the pictures of the listing, some of the most beautiful views of the Eastern Townships are just a few minutes away from our property.
2 - Our place has recently been renovated and it has a lot of character. The beds are really confortable and we can conformably greet several Guests. The FIREPLACE is awesome especially in wintertime and we also feature a lot of original artworks created by my boyfriend and co-owner Brad Firmino on our walls.
3 - The PINE TREE FOREST that surrounds our home is magical. Every morning we can watch the sun rise over the lake through the trees. We also have a HAMAC, FIRE PIT, and BBQ area, which is a great spot to spend time outdoors with family and friends at any time in the year.
Here are 3 THINGS TO CONSIDER before renting:
1 - We have put a lot of love in our home so NO PARTIES nor loud music or any kind of loud noise outside is permitted, out of respect for the residents living around the lake.
2 - Our country home is located in the forest. Although it is very conveniently located (5 mins from the lake, 10 mins from Owl's Head), don't expect to find Burger King on our street corner. The closest chains of restaurants can be found in Magog, which is about 20 minutes away. That said, we do have a local restaurant in the Austin village that is only located 5 mins away and you'll be pleased to know that I can guarantee the food there is awesome. A mini-SAQ, a grocery store, and two corner stores can also be found within 10 minutes drive from our house.
3 - Our kitchen has NO CONVENTIONAL OVEN. It was already like that when we bought the place and it's simply impossible to fit one in the current layout. So we use a convection oven microwave and BBQ to cook anything that can be cooked in an oven. Yes, a turkey can be cooked in the BBQ and it's delicious.
Now that this is clear, let's get to the description of the place.
The minute you'll walk in, you'll fall in love with this beautiful COUNTRY HOME, which has been tastefully decorated with a MODERN COUNTRY STYLE. Located at the heart of the EASTERN TOWNSHIPS, this charming 4-BEDROOM property has been recently renovated to accommodate as much as 10 GUESTS.
The place is entirely equipped with the latest technology including a 55" HD/3D TV with NETFLIX, 600W 5.1 SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM and HIGH-SPEED WIRELESS INTERNET!
The kitchen is fully equipped with ultra-quiet STAINLESS STEEL DISHWASHER, GAS STOVE, & COFFEE MACHINE. Instead of a conventional oven, you'll find a MICROWAVE CONVECTION OVEN suitable for normal cooking (large enough to cook pies, lasagna, cookies, etc.) Again, if you are planning to prepare a big meal, such as a turkey, you can use the DELUXE STAINLESS STEEL OUTDOOR BBQ to cook such a meal.
The large dining room table can sit as much as 10 people and was custom made out of RECYCLED BARNWOOD.
The 4 bedrooms are fully furnished with new comfortable beds (two QUEEN, one DOUBLE and two BUNK BEDS) that will accommodate as much as 8 guests.
The bright living room features a beautiful FIREPLACE, COMPUTER STATION, and a LARGE L-SHAPE COUCH with DELUXE HIDE-A-BED that will fit two more guests.
If you are renting for a long stay, a high end SAMSUNG WASHER and DRYER is available for you if you need to do your laundry.
The place also features 2 FULL WASHROOMS with SHOWER and TOWELS and BEDSHEETS are also included for everyone!
