Relax, Rejuvenate, Lakeside Private Chalet Spa Getaway

Family-friendly vacation home with spa tub and sauna
Here at Friendly Fires Getaway, we are offering relaxation and rejuvenation at our private and peaceful lakeside chalet! As an all-inclusive four-season getaway, you will find everything you need within the walls of our self-contained, architecturally designed cottage; located on beautiful Grand Lake in Quebec's Gatineau Hills. We invite you to make yourself at home. You are sure to create lasting memories.

You will be greeted by cottage, with a few privately set buildings, giving you privacy that you and your group will appreciate. You will walk down from the driveaway to find our buildings comfortably aligned along that path. They greet you one at a time, each one is more private than the last. All linked together, by one main building that can be seen when you drive up. On it is the green roof with potted plants. This building features generous spaces for entertaining, but is also set up in a way that allows you to just curl up with a book if you wish. You can relax on the sun filled decks, docks, sunporch, outdoor hot tub, or have a fire on the campfire deck. You can switch to the indoor sauna, before breakfast or before bed – your choice. This place has lots of options! Options to be alone, or be in the group!

We also feature a few cooking ideas for the foodies out there. We have a beautifully unique bbq, with all kinds of cooking options. You can smoke your food on the smoker at the camp site. Enjoy the kitchen while enjoying the spa features.

Things are set up and situated to awaken your senses, relaxing your mind, body and soul. The moody vibe allows you to be intimate, if you wish, or tell stories over a meal.This place can do both. There are lots of tasteful details all over the cottage for you to discover! It is a very personalized place with both practical and whimsical details. Even some that are made to make you smile!

Our 4-season cottage feels and looks like a cottage should. It has small spaces, and the open spaces. It is a place that you will want to light a fire, after all, there are 7 fire options to choose from! It will keep you busy, because being at a cottage, is about doing cottage things!

We face south so the cottage is filled with sunlight! It has windows everywhere and you will feel like you're outside, except you are not! The site is filled with trees, and you even have a view of the lake!

Enjoy your breakfast outdoors just footsteps from the lake's edge, before diving into the lake for a refreshing early morning swim. Come back to suntan on the dock, warm up in the sauna, or relax in our 8-person hot tub while your food is being smoked. Once you plan this trip, you will not want to leave!

You can also enjoy an afternoon fishing off the dock and you're welcome to kayak or canoe. In winter, you are on the doorstep of the Nations Capital's premier cross country ski trail (Nakkertok), and only 15 minutes from Edelweiss and Mont Cascades for downhill skiing. Golf is nearby as well as the beautiful Gatineau park!

The cottage is located near the village of Perkins, or Wakefield which includes a grocery stores, a butcher, hardware store, pharmacy and restaurant/bars. It is close to local golf courses, horseback riding, LA fleche caves and an aerial park. The Outaouais and West Quebec areas are rich in historic, cultural, and linguistic diversity. This region boasts some of best year-round outdoor lifestyle and entertainment activities in the world such as skiing, cycling, hiking and more! We will send you lots of options to look at prior to your stay.

A gem!
We had a wonderful stay at Friendly Fires. The cottage is roomy and cozy with all the amenities one could hope for. We felt like we were at a spa for a week and took full advantage of the sauna and hot tub. We will definitely book the cottage again!

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic Family Get Away!
This is an awesome vacation retreat. It features a wood burning sauna, hot tub, and rustic but very stylish furnishings. The sleeping arrangements allow for guests to spread out a bit if one wants a bit of downtime from the main common areas. Robin was an awesome host - very responsive and helpful. Our family plans to book again soon. Perfect for a couple of couples also looking for a nice get away quite close to Ottawa.
