Owners’ comments

Charming 3 season cottage on Fraser Lake.   The cottage has a  kitchen, bathroom, living room, deck and three bedrooms. As well a utility room.  

Fraser Lake is minutes from Wakefield and approximately 30 minutes to Ottawa.  Is is a beautiful clean lake, excellent for swimming, the water is like silk.   No motorized boats, great for stand up paddle boards, fishing etc.  The Fall colours are amazing with the many reflected colours mirrored onto the water

Walking trail

There is a lovely walking trail that encircles Fraser Lake.  Great for dog walking. Remember to pick up after your dog in order to maintain the pristine water in the lake.   The Gatineau Park is located minutes away for those looking for more vigorous outdoor activities.

#1  I just spent 3 weeks at the cottage and it was bliss!! The lake is absolutely lovely amazingly quiet even during the long holiday weekend. Wonderful for long swims, taking out the paddleboard, and watching the sunset from the dock. Very peaceful! And no power boats or jet skis! The cottage has everything one needs small, but very functional kitchen with good, large bbq on the back deck. All of the beds were super comfy, tons of towels, and great hot shower. There is a large sunny yard out back with picnic table, a fire pit with lots of wood, and a sitting porch on the front with swing and view of the lake through the trees. Overall, if you're looking for absolute serenity, but still near Gatineau Park, Wakefield, and Ottawa then I would HIGHLY recommend this place. I definitely would love to return. 

#2  Wonderful place to unplug and enjoy nature.

#3   The cottage is amazing!!! We had an amazing time.

#4  The minute we pulled up, we loved it. We spent thanksgiving there and had such a memorable time! I will be back again! The dock and the water was awesome! The cottage is cozy and quaint. We just loved it. 

 #5  A lovely quiet retreat on a quiet lake. With the warm weather, the dock and inviting water were well used.

#6   Thank you so much for having us to stay - the cottage was simply perfect for what we needed, in a great location and what a stunning lake to wake up to each morning! We all had a wonderful time and wish you werent selling up as I know we would be back to stay if ever we return to Canada!

Did you know?

Whether you purchase a property from a homeowner or from a broker, the steps involved and the legal implications are the same. You’ll see that buying without an intermediary has many advantages!

Can I afford to buy this property?

Prior to visiting a property, you should verify whether you have the means to purchase it by meeting with a financial advisor. Don’t forget, you must have enough money to cover both a down payment and the expenses related to the transaction (notary, property transfer duties, etc.).

Is this property right for me?

Consult the listing to determine whether the property features meet your needs. If necessary, communicate with the homeowner to obtain additional information. You may then make an appointment with the homeowner for a visit and prepare a list of questions to ask him.

Do I need to conduct a property inspection?

Verifying the condition of the property prior to purchasing it is a good precaution to take. In order to do so, you can hire a home inspector. He will intervene at a later date. Be prepared to add the inspection conditions to the offer to purchase.

How much should I offer?

Easily familiarize yourself with the market by visiting DuProprio.com and by verifying the price that comparable properties in the area have sold for. You’ll get a better idea of how much you should offer. You can also hire a licensed appraiser.

How do I proceed with an offer to purchase?

Have a discussion with the homeowner in order to come to an agreement on the price, the conditions of the sale and the possession date. You can then complete the offer to purchase form.

Thanks to DuProprio, the seller benefits from a legal assistance service and can ask their legal questions in order to properly complete the document.

The sale will be sealed with a notary, but until then, nothing prevents you from consulting a notary to write-up an offer to purchase. Once the deed of sale is drafted, you will be the new homeowner!
