Friendly Fires Getaway

4 bedrooms – 2 bathrooms – 2 Half Baths – Sleeps 8


Here at Friendly Fires Getaway, we offer relaxation and rejuvenation at our private and peaceful lakeside chalet! Friendly Fires Getaway is an all-inclusive four-seasons getaway. Here you will find everything you will need within the walls of our self-contained, architecturally designed cottage. Friendly Fires Getaway is located on the shores of beautiful Grand Lake in Quebec’s Gatineau Hills. We invite you to make yourself at home. You are sure to create lasting memories.

When you arrive you will be greeted by our cottage complex, consisting of several  physically separated buildings.  These buildings will provide you with the facilities as well as the seclusion that you and your group will come to enjoy. As you walk down the driveway toward the cottage the buildings are comfortably aligned along your path.  They greet you as you pass them by, each one more private than the last. At the lower level, and closest to the lake is our large main cottage which you can see as you drive up. On top of the main building is a green roof garden with potted plants.

The main cottage features accommodating spaces for entertaining.  It also provides compact, cosy spaces that allow you just to curl up with a book if you so wish. You can also relax on the sun filled decks, our docks, the sun porch, 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, options to be in the group! We do have 2 stand by generators on the property in case of a power outage. This is a fully operational system year round.

We also feature a few cooking ideas for the foodies out there. We have a beautifully unique bbq, a smoker, and a pizza oven for your 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 open spaces. It is a place where 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!

 As befits life at the cottage, you can enjoy an afternoon fishing off the dock. And you are welcome to kayak or canoe. But during all seasons there are so many other activities available to you in the immediate area. Golf is nearby as well as the beauties of the magnificent Gatineau Park.

In winter, you are on the doorstep of the Nation’s Capital’s premier cross country ski club (Nakkertok), and only 15 minutes from Edelweiss and Mont Cascades for downhill skiing.  Snow shoeing and skating are also available during the winter season.

The cottage is located near the villages of Perkins and Wakefield which include grocery stores, a butcher, hardware store, pharmacy and restaurants/bars. It is close to local golf courses, horseback riding, Lafleche 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.
