Mont Tremblant ski resort is less than 15 minutes away making for a quick drive to the ski hills. Mont Blanc is even closer at 10 minutes away. And you can relax in the hot tub after a hard day on the hills! In summer, you can while away your hours sitting on the porch overlooking the lake, or head down to the lake to enjoy a swim off the dock. The kids will have plenty to do with the canoe and assorted water toys. This truly is an all season property and the tranquil setting makes for a relaxing vacation. Yet all the exciting activities of a world-class resort are mere minutes away.

About Stephen Rowat

We're a middle aged couple who enjoy renting vacation properties when we travel as well as renting our one property in Mont-Tremblant for others to enjoy. As renters ourselves, we understand what vacation renters expect in a house, and we strive to maintain our property and amenities consistent with the pricing.

Stephen Rowat purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Stephen Rowat chose Villa des Bois

We've been skiing at Tremblant for over 30 years, and had been renting vacation properties for our ski weekends with friends many times over. One year, we decided that instead of renting, we'd buy our own place, use it part-time in the winter, and then rent it out when we're not using it. We wanted a house on water so as to entice summer bookings, and we wanted a place that we was close to the ski hills so that getting to the hills by 8:30am was no chore, yet far enough away to offer peace and quiet from the Village. We wanted a reasonably high end home that would be a real treat to our renters (and to ourselves!), and that was large enough to accommodate two families, or a group of couples.

What makes this chalet unique

Our house is beautifully maintained. It's located 12-15 minutes from the south hub of Mint-Tremblant, so we're close enough to the action, but far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet. This is a year-round vacation property--great to enjoy in the summer with the lovely screen porch and the lake just steps away. Excellent in the winter with the slopes mere minutes away, and an outdoor hot tub to relax your tired muscles at the end of the day.

The screen porch is the best place to enjoy your meals in the summer. The lake itself is a 15 second walk out the lower door and down about 15 steps to the dock. There's a lovely sitting area at the end of the dock; but also one tucked into the woods should you need a break from the summer sun.

In winter (or heaven forbid, a rainy day in summer), the lower level of the house features the wide-screen HiDef TV and a pool table. Of course there's Internet WiFi enabling contact with the outside world (or should we disable this feature? ;-)

We're constantly upgrading the property. When guests mention a shortcoming, it's either resolved during their stay or shortly thereafter for enhancement suggestions. We strive to have happy guests, and take whatever action is necessary should that not be the case.

Beautiful home on Lac Forget

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with plenty of space for 8 adults. The location was great...about 10 km to the Village and skiing. The house is right on the lake and would be perfect for summer activities. Stephen was very accessible and very helpful during the process. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely stay again. I would highly recommend others to stay here as well.

Vacation with family

  • 4 of 5

Everybody enjoyed there stay in this beautiful home, the many activities on site and around made fallen asleep a breeze. Nice size lake with no motors, lots of would be prince on the shore. At night it was quiet and the sky lights up full of stars. We're bringing back wonderful memories, would have liked to stay another week and definitely a place we would love to come back to.

Thanks Stephen

Nice cottage great location in Tremblant.

  • 3 of 5

Cottage was clean and well stocked. Convenient location to other activities in the area. Unfortunately the queen size beds were uncomfortable. Access to the lake is somewhat hazardous. Overall good vacation but cottage was very uncomfortable during hot weather due to lack of air conditioning.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments and input on the house, Hubert. In chatting with Hubert after his stay, he clarified that it was one queen bed in particular that was found to be uncomfortable. As such, we will have that mattress replaced by the end of the summer. Our apologies to the guess who had that bed--one always expects and should get a good night's sleep, and we feel badly that that was not the case here. In terms of access to the lake, Tremblant is a hilly area and one typically walks down to most lakes. In our case, as part of the landscaping of the property, there are indeed a number of large (200 pound), well-placed flat stones that make up a very safe set of steps down to the lake. Overall, there are approximately 25 steps between the house and the lake. It's not particularly steep, and I've never thought of the access as being hazardous. A further note is that the dock is slated for replacement at the end of the season. Part of that work was completed prior to the summer season (replaced 2 sections that had some rotten planks).

Beautiful home. Stunning vista.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this beautiful spot for a long weekend ski trip for 9 people. The home easily accommodated all of us and it was nice to have a well stocked kitchen. Everyone fully enjoyed the hot tub after a day of skiing. We were lucky enough to take 8 inches of snow on the day of our arrival. We had some issues on the way in as our truck is rear wheel drive but the plow was there quickly and sanded the roads. Stephen responded and took care of the one issue we had immediately.

Fabulous spot. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful, well-located, clean, and spacious house with all amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 adults had a wonderful time staying here. We came to Mt Tremblant to ski, and this house was just a short distance from the slopes. We would absolutely stay here again - there was plenty of room for us, as well as all the amenities that we could need. The kitchen is very well-stocked, and the hot tub is great after a long day of skiing. We loved it!
