Thinking of taking a vacation this winter? Do you want to rent a cottage away from the city with family, friends, or as a couple? Renting a cottage is the perfect way to get away from it all and recharge your batteries. Winter vacations are a great opportunity to get together and have fun … or relax! Either way, finding a cottage takes time and patience. The following tips will help you find the perfect cottage rental for your vacation. 

Renting a cottage: who, when, and how?

With so many cottages to rent in Quebec, the search can be time consuming. It’s important to determine your needs before you start. First, choose the region and dates that suit you. Then, plan how many people will come and set your budget. This way, you will spend less time browsing the ads that don’t match what you’re looking for. But don’t take too much time deciding and make that reservation quickly. Winter cottage rentals have become very popular in recent years. The most desirable cottages go quickly. Some people even make reservations a year in advance. Since it’s a busy time of year, some condo-type cottages can be noisy. If you are looking for something quieter, consider a secluded cottage in the forest if possible. Our 3,000-acre private estate is the perfect place to enjoy nature in peace and quiet, away from any neighbours. 

Activities nearby

Think about the activities you would like to do. If you’re a downhill skier or snowboarder, you’ll want to be within reasonable distance of a ski resort. Some may prefer quiet trails for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing or even a day at the spa! The Laurentians and Kanata Tremblant offer an incredible variety of activities, whether you want to snowshoe by moonlight or enjoy a massage at the Club House. In addition, two major ski resorts are located within 30 minutes of Kanata Tremblant. The renowned Mont-Tremblant, whose reputation is well known throughout the world, and the smaller and family-friendly Mont Blanc, the area’s best-kept secret, which is perfect for beginners and advanced skiers alike! 

Renting a chalet: what is included?

Be sure to check what is included in the chalet rental. If you are having many people over for dinner, you will probably want a dishwasher. Will you need a high chair for the little ones? What about Wi-Fi? The number of amenities will likely be reflected in the price, but can you really put a price on comfort? Kanata Tremblant offers high-end, all-inclusive cottages. With a fully equipped kitchen for entertaining, Wi-Fi access, full bedding service (sheets, pillows, comforters and daily toiletries), Kanata Tremblant also offers on-site activities. These include hiking and snowshoeing trails and a climbing wall for the more adventurous. Most of our rental cottages also offer family entertainment with pool tables, foosball tables, or even table tennis. 

What services are nearby?

Be sure to check for nearby amenities depending on what you are planning. For example, if you are hosting a family dinner, a grocery store nearby is key. Shopping locally in the area you are visiting is a great way to keep the economy thriving. You will undoubtedly discover beautiful boutiques and shops, but you’ll also meet people eager to share their part of the country with you. If dining out is in the cards, check out our restaurant suggestions in the area. The Tremblant area has a wide variety of restaurants for all tastes. And, of course, be sure to make a reservation to ensure you get a table. 

Check the rules and reviews

Be sure to read reviews from past customers. This will help you avoid disappointment. Also, read the rules and regulations of the rental and confirm the cleaning and disinfection policy. Carefully read the cancellation policy, arrival and departure times, and additional guest fees. Other regulations may include whether you can bring your pet for example. Or is the cottage a non-smoking cottage? Are cleaning fees included? How much is the security deposit? What is the refund policy? And so on. Kanata Tremblant has its own online reservation platform. Owners do not have to worry about rental management as it is handled by us. However, this service remains at the discretion of the owners and they can take over the task if they wish. 

Payment and confirmation of your reservation

Once you have found your ideal chalet, all you have to do is make your reservation. Make sure the payment is made on a secure site and ask for a reservation contract. The contract should indicate the dates of your stay, the total cost, the amount of the deposit, if any, and the equipment included. Then, it’s done! All that’s left to do is enjoy your stay. Buying a cottage as a rental investment is popular and with good reason. In addition to enjoying the cottage for yourself, you have the benefit of extra income. And you don’t have to feel guilty if you choose to vacation elsewhere, just make your cottage available for rent that week. At Kanata Tremblant we offer you peace of mind. Our hotel style rental management and high hospitality and service standards ensure our cottage rentals on our beautiful private estate are in high demand. Do you dream of being an owner renter?
