Beautiful Lac Nantel lodges travellers in a lakefront chalet, where seasonal views of turning foliage or snow-dusted mountains wash over sojourners as they step out onto private wraparound decks. Up to 10 guests can re-enact their favourite reality show while bunking throughout the abode’s four nonsmoking bedrooms, complemented by two full bathrooms, a two-person jacuzzi, and foldout couch. Accommodations also encompass an open kitchen, plus a dining and living room warmed by a fieldstone fireplace. Hardwood carpentry adorns the floors and walls, and amenities such as a washer and dryer, high-speed Internet access, and satellite television provide the creature comforts of home and the average home bathroom.
In the winter, skiing awaits at nearby Mont Blanc and Mont-Tremblant, as well as cross-country skiing, ice fishing, skating, and snow shoeing inside Mont-Tremblant National Park. Come spring, guests can captain a canoe or fleet of floaties out onto Lac Nantel to enjoy the lush natural surrounds. More nearby diversions include Scandinave Spa Mont-Tremblant and Casino de Mont-Tremblant.
Beautiful Lac Nantel’s rates fluctuate throughout each season.
