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.

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!

Winter accomodation

  • 3 of 5

Overall the property is in good condition.( This is my third season as a renter )

My biggest problem is access to the property in snowy weather.There is a steep driveway with no sand available for traction in spite of my asking on 4 occasions.

You must have 4 wheel drive or good snow tires to get out of the unit.On the first day of my arrival, ( a snowy day ) I could not get up the hill from the highway and had to go to a local motel.

Dish cloths and drying towels are in short supply.

The dish washer does not clean dishes very well .

A great place to stay for skiiers if you don't mind the daily drive to the hill.

good spacious accommodation,good hot tub,good fireplace with ample supply of firewood.

Owner's Response: It was unfortunate that Ron arrived in the middle of a snow storm and could not get to our chalet from the highway on the Village road. I can appreciate his frustration. In general, the Village of Mont-Tremblant does an excellent job of plowing the roads, coming multiple times per storm. That said, the Laurentians are hilly and snow tires are necessary in the winter. At Ron's request prior to his arrival, I did provide sand as well as leaving fireplace ashes which make for excellent traction on our driveway. So I'm not sure why that was mentioned as a failing. Additionally, Ron called the snow removal company who responded very quickly to his request for assistance. We weren't aware of the problem with the dishwasher so thanks for letting us know about that issue. It is a fairly new d/w (3 yrs) and it appears the problem was soap put in the rinse-aid container which the cleaner would have missed. We've got that cleaned out and looks like it's working much better now. And we will also look to increase the supply of linens in the kitchen. Thanks for mentioning that.

Awesome getaway

  • 5 of 5

Simply Wow !! We were a group of 10 going to ski at Mont tremblant. The chalet is 10 min away from the ski station. The site is incredible just next to a frozen lake. The chalet is perfectly maintained, equiped with all the amenities one can ask for and most importantly super clean. The space was just perfect for all of us and on top of that the pool table and hot tub added some extra fun!! We cannot wait to visit this place again in summer !!
