The TV bought in 2017 with soundbar and cable is very pleasant to watch. The wifi is included, you can browse the internet without much difficulty (high speed not available in the area). However, if you want to listen to anything on youtube, I suggest you bring some DVDs or a USB key.
The basement is also very large with in the main living area a pool table, dart board, pocket game and sofa - TV.
On each floor there is a full bathroom with 2 sinks and a shower. In the bathroom in the basement there is a bath.

The water comes from a well, you will have a lot, but it's still a well, we recommend using the water wisely.
In summer, you will have direct access to the lake and a beach for swimming. You can use our two kayaks and our two mountain bikes. On the side of the activities in the area, you will be directly in the nature. The summit of Mount Adstock is an hour's walk from the cottage.
In winter, the snowmobile trail passes on the lake, directly in front of the cottage. Mont Adstock Ski and Golf is 10 minutes' drive away. There are some cross country ski centers in the area. If you have snowshoes, the mountains behind the cottage will allow you to improvise your route or take some trails.
You will be 15 minutes from Thetford Mines and all stores for shopping such as Wal-Mart, IGA, Maxi, Super C, Canadian Tire, etc. We advise you to bring the necessary for the time you spend at the cottage.
The address of the Chalet is 8071 J.E. Fortin Road, Adstock, G0N 1S0. If you have the interest of using your GPS, we must warn you that the only way to the Cottage is via McCutcheon Road. Naturally, it is likely that your GPS will take you through the Chemin Auclair. However, what the GPS does not know is that there is a barrier that does not open in the path that goes around the lake. One suggestion would be to put McCutcheon Road in your GPS and change it to the cottage address when you are at your destination.
