Summer at BBI Montpellier

Wow summer 2010 is almost over!

And as we approach the last long weekend of this summer, I'd like to reflect on the past season: The weather was great, it was hot, sunny (hey no complains) and it rained in between to cool things down and keep the plants smiling all summer long.

We spent the last winter renovating our BBI Montpellier, Quebec location “ the cottage”. This year, we enjoyed the company of Polish, American, Canadian, Russian and Jamaican visitors.

We like to update you with the amenities at this getaway location:
This two-story A framed cottage, with a magnificent lake view, it has 1,500 square feet of fun space. It includes a master and single bedroom on the second floor, one bedroom on the main floor and one bathroom. It has a combined open concept kitchen, dining and living areas with glass sliding doors leading onto a 12 X 25 deck looking on to Lac Shryer. The cottage is elevated, hence one enjoys a commanding view. The immediate area around the cottage is heavily wooded providing privacy from other cottages in the area.

Amenities : The cottage has an Afro-Caribbean theme and it is fully equipped with electric stove, refrigerator, microwave, propane and coal BBQs, Stereo/CD and DVD. Heat is provided by electric heaters and an air-tight wood stove. Cold and hot running water is provided through a pumped underground well that is regularly tested for safe drinking. Satellite TV and VCR/DVD are available in the large recreation room. More details at

You are 5 kilometres from Montpellier Golf course and 12 kilometres from villages such as Ripon and Cheneville.

Where is this place ? I can’t wait to go ! The cottage is situated on Lake Shryer in the Papineauville region 1 hour north of Ottawa¹, Ontario, the Capital of Canada and it is approximately 30 minutes from Mont Tremblant² golf and skiing resort.


I would like to thank all the visitors who participated in making this a very fun and successful summer season at our Montpellier location. We hope that you enjoyed your stay and that it was a memorable vacation at a place for you, in a place to remember.
