Cheshire Lodge is a 6,500 sq ft handcrafted log home providing guests with both luxurious privacy, and convenient access to the area's major town's, tourist attractions, golf clubs and ski resorts. The renowned five star Esterel Golf Course is just a two minute drive from Cheshire Lodge's front gates: picturesque Saint Sauveur a short 15 minute drive down Highway 15: the best skiing in Quebec lies half an hour north at Mont Tremblant.

Only two years old, Cheshire Lodge was constructed by local artisan builders using only the finest materials. Hand cut Italian slate tiles in the reception area and kitchen perfectly complement the Lodge's custom milled wooden floors. Walking in through the front door, visitors are greeted by a double fronted fireplace which sits at the entrance to Cheshire Lodge's spectacular 750 sq ft 'Great Room', boasting massive hand carved log walls, and 30 foot high floor to ceiling windows commanding picture perfect views over the estate's private lake and woods. A state of the art kitchen is equipped with designed stainless steel appliances, including a 48" gas range stove, double door refrigerator-freezer, and double dishwasher. A six-seater granite breakfast bar, and a 14-seater dining area provide for both cosy family dining or, more lavish dinner party entertaining. All of Cheshire Lodge's five bedrooms have been individually designed with either contemporary or antique furnishings. The Lodge's two Master Suites come with spa quality ensuite bathrooms. On the top floor, a private gallery with a stunning curved ceiling connects one Master Suite to two other bedrooms and a generous sized bathroom. A second Master Suite is located off the Great Room, and a fifth bedroom (prefect for kids) is located in the basement den, where you will also find a games room, laundry room and guest bathroom. bathrooms have underfloor heating, pebble or exotic tiled floors and huge baths. For family entertainment there is a 46" plasma TV with satellite, two DVD players, a pool table and free WiFi Internet access. A 360 degree wraparound deck runs around Cheshire Lodge, with steps leading down into the landscaped gardens and, beyond them, the lake. A cosy fire pit with hand-carved log benches and seats has been built halfway between the house and lake; perfect for Smores under the stars!
