The names of the cottages follow the works of Magog artist Marie-Michèle Desmarais, known as Le Nid Atelier. The bears and otters in the cottage are the work of Marie-Michèle Desmarais.
The urban outfitting
As an avid fisherman, I’ve discovered that Lake Massawippi and Lake Memphremagog are teeming with magnificent trout. Access to the lakes is increasingly restricted and complicated by algae and mussel problems. Not to mention that the purchase of a fishing boat and equipment represents a major investment for just a few fishing trips. So why not combine fishing in town with luxury accommodation and culinary activities?
It’s easy to see that going to an outfitter is just as costly in terms of money and time, since outfitters close to major centers are rare if not non-existent. Not to mention the fact that outfitters are no longer adapted to today’s lifestyles.
The original idea behind the transformation of the chalet was to create a “deVille” outfitter, allowing people to come and fish for trout on Lake Massawippi and Lake Memphremagog in comfort and safety (close to hospitals). Combine family activities such as hiking, tennis and golf with fishing, making it a complementary rather than the main activity for the whole family and, above all, for people of all ages. Whether you’re a novice or a fishing enthusiast, there’s something for everyone. We’re still working on obtaining a non-exclusive outfitting permit.
