About Denice

We are a family of life-long skiers. I've been skiing for decades, but am still most comfortable on the blues. Our grown sons are now expert tele-skiers who seek out the challenging slopes and back-country, while I prefer the convenience of clicking into my skis right on the front porch. But we all love skiing and the many good times spent with family and friends in our ski condo!

Denice purchased this condo in 2002

Why Denice chose Mansonville

As soon as we drove into Owls Head (on the dirt road that in summer traverses the ski trail), saw the stunning views and realized we could combine that with the ease of Ski-in / Ski-out, we were sold! The Ski-in / Ski-out aspect of this condo is wonderful (ski-in for bathroom breaks, snacks, adjusting layers of clothing, meals, rests, etc), and we've found that because we are constantly in and out of the condo during the ski day, even the non-skiers in our group remain included in the interaction of the day. Another reason we love this property is the spectacular view of the lake! We enjoy boating and fishing on the lake, and we've done our share of golfing at Owls Head in the summertime, too. Lots to do in this four-season for us, it's really all about the ski-in / ski-out!

What makes this condo unique

SKI-IN / SKI-OUT! Plus: gorgeous lake, golf, boating, mountain-biking competitions, summer music festival, hiking, fishing, autumn-fest...

Perfect Ski-in / Ski-out Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time at the condo at Mt. Owls Head. The property was exactly as described and located directly uphill from the 'black chair' lift which made it an ideal spot to depart on skis and return to the condo as necessary though-out the day for refreshments. The condo was well stocked, pleasantly decorated and impeccably clean.

The snow conditions were ideal. We had a stretch of cold weather and a storm which brought 75cm of powder snow! After spending the day on the slopes, my family had a wonderful time in front of the fire place, playing board games and lounging in the main area of the condo.

Mt. Owls Head is an ideal family ski destination. There were no crowds and everything was very reasonably priced. Even the pro-shop at the ski resort was well stocked with any last minute items you may forget to bring. Staff was extremely friendly everywhere and we dined at the main lodge twice during the snow storm.

The area surrounding lac Mephremagog is very scenic and we could imagine that it would also be an ideal area to vacation during the summer season. We made a few trips to the town of Magog which is a bustling larger town with several options of fine dining. Magog also has all of the major stores and includes a large ski and bike store.

We can't wait to come back next year for skiing and would consider coming for a week during the summer. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Michael, Thank you for your wonderful review and for your "Highly Recommended" rating of my condo! It is awesome that you got so much fresh powder to ski during your stay! I'm happy that you appreciated the cleanliness, completeness and decor of the condo - we try hard to make it a clean, pleasant and welcoming home-away-from-home for our guests and it's rewarding when that is noticed. I'm also pleased to hear that your family enjoyed cozy evenings in front of the fireplace in the condo. It sounds like you gave your children some special memories to take home from your Owls Head ski trip...and I'm glad that our condo was a part of that. It was a pleasure renting to you and I look forward to your return. Denice

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Owls Head. The ski conditions were great. The snow just kept falling.

Everything at the condo was in great shape and our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The ski in/out was perfect to allow us to get fresh tracks in the morning in come back for a short rest when our legs go tired.

Owls Head is real hidden gem of a ski hill. No lift lines and lots of runs to chose from.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

This house is located right in the mountain, ski off/ski on. The house is really well maintained, with everything you could need. There are also tons of games and movies for the family. My family loved this house and this vacation. We will be back!

Spacious, Comfortable Ski-in-ski-out Destination.

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this property many times and always enjoy the experience. The spacious condo has everything needed for a relaxing stay at Owl's Head. Options for dining nearby are limited, but we prefer to do our own cooking and the kitchen is well suited to make it happen. Local grocery options - a general store a short drive away, and larger stores in Mansonville and Magog - have all you need.

Owl's Head is known for its spectacular views of Lake Memphremagog and you can enjoy the view from the comfort of the condo too !

This is a real ski-in-ski-out destination for those who want comfortable accommodations at Owl's Head. Looking forward to returning again.

Beautiful! Exactly as described!

The experience of this ski-in, ski-out condo at Owl’s Head in February was fabulous!

The condo had everything we needed and more!

It was clean, spacious and wonderfully located.

The owner was responsive and friendly and all condo instructions were clear and easy.

The views were phenomenal!

We definitely recommend this condo and the experience at Owl’s Head!

We look forward to another stay and for a summer visit.

Clean, comfy & fun place to stay on the slopes

  • 5 of 5

Great stay at the condo. I am pretty picky (OCD would be an understatement) and felt very comfortable here! Very clean!! Everything we needed for a comfy stay was provided. We were actually able to ski out right from the condo, and then ski "in" directly across the road (so, snap skis off, cross the road, super easy)... the weather was wacky (70 degrees in February?!) but we were able to get some runs in the sunshine. Had dinner at the lodge (one night)... a bit pricey, but excellent quality. Drove into Magog the next night (just wanted a pizza, not much around locally... this is the only downfall of the area)... if the snow conditions were good, could easily stay longer (or for the lake during the summer!). Wifi & DVD helped during down time. We brought some groceries for breakfast/ lunch/ snacks & drinks, kitchen was great! Would definitely recommend this place for a fun stay.
