Our Long Weekend Cottage Getaway

We were fortunate enough to get out of town and spend a little time on beautiful Lac Minerve in Mont Tremblant, Québec for the long weekend last week.  We were especially fortunate to be invited to Ryan’s good buddy’s “cottage” for the long weekend…a sprawling cottage mansion with creature comforts that I didn’t even know existed!

Ryan had been several times already but it was my first…and I was stunned.  When Ryan pulled into the long winding driveway, and we were greeted by a 15-foot totem pole, I had thought that Ryan took a wrong turn.  Nope.  That’s just their family totem pole!

Our weekend was marked with fabulous dinners that we took turns making, group lunches, laughs on the dock, fishing, horseshoes, corn hole (a really fun game with a very unfortunate name), and cruising around the lake on their beautiful houseboat.  Sigh…

Here are a few pics from our awesome weekend!

          Ooooh! Will do! Glad you had a chance to visit. I’m ashamed to say that despite the fact that I live so close to Tremblant, that cottage weekend was my first visit there. The hubby and I plan on going again this winter!

    Amazing! I love the beautiful decor … Especial my those enormous lantern-style pendant lights. Jealous of you!! 😉

      Haha! The cottage was decorated beautifully. Our friend’s mom did most of the decorating herself. She’s a real whiz at it! Thanks for reading, Ashley!

      Thank you! Lac Minerve here at Mont Tremblant is an oasis!! The foggy mornings were especially beautiful!

    What a beautiful home! The totem pole is very cool. I would love to visit Canada one day, it seems very picturesque.

    • August 17, 2015 / 1:32 pm

      Canada really is! We have oceans, lakes, rivers by the thousands, mountains and valleys, prairies and tundra, and beautiful, cosmopolitan cities full of friendly people! Come on up! LOL!

      • August 17, 2015 / 1:39 pm

        Lol I think I’ll have to plan a trip soon! One of my co-workers is from there and already has me thinking about visiting Vancouver, Toronto, & Montreal. I can only imagine how many other wonderful places there are to see!

        • August 18, 2015 / 10:33 am

          There are tons, but start with those cities…and try to go in the summer! LOL! I would start with Vancouver. It’s just too beautiful over there. Then Montréal – it’s like Little France. Once you are done there, skip on over to Ottawa – our beautiful capital – and then Toronto, which we lovingly refer to as Little New York. LOL! Have fun!

          • August 18, 2015 / 12:39 pm

            Thanks for the tips! Definitely on my list for next summer 🙂 Interested in Toronto as a native New Yorker lol
