I get the question every day from buyers, therefore I propose this article regarding the lakefront cottage possibilities within 30 minutes of Mont-Tremblant.
First of all, why maximum 30 minutes? It’s because a large percentage of buyers estimate that 30 minute drive is the maximum they wish to do to go skiing at Tremblant. Therefore, here is the list of quality lakes in my opinion that are within that radius:
In Mont-Tremblant : Lake Tremblant, Lake Mercier, Lake Ouimet, Lake Desmarais, Lake Gélinas, Lake Duhamel, Lake Forget, Lake Dufour, Lake Gauthier.
North in La Conception : Lake Vezeau, Lake des Trois-Montagnes, Lake Xavier
North in Labelle : Lake Labelle (watch out because it's a very long lake, it's more than 30 min to the end of it), Lake Joly, Lake Gervais, Lake Alphonse.
South in Lac Supérieur : Lake Supérieur and Lake Quenouille.
West in Amherst : Lake Cameron and Lake de la Sucrerie
West in Lac-des-Plages : Lake des Plages.
Prices vary a lot from one lake to another due to its location, quality, and community, which is why it’s strongly recommended to work with a real estate agent (broker) that specializes in the waterfront cottage market like me, in order to guide your research and help you find your ideal property.
What prices should you expect in that radius? Excluding lake Tremblant and Mercier, it’s possible to find a 2 bedroom waterfront cottage starting at 200 000$, and a 3 bedroom from 250 000$. The 4 bedroom cottages in good shape are now at a starting price of 300 000$.
