The family decided to treat itself to a luxury chalet rental for our summer vacation. We wanted a place with plenty of space, waterfront and, since we'd be travelling with 2 kids under three, not too far from Montreal.
Luckily we already heard of Chalets Oasis. (Yes it's part of the Fiddler Lake gated community but it's a long/weird complicated story that seems to punish Chalets Oasis renters)
So at 600$+ a night we found our luxury rental (Moose 33). Every aspect related to booking and renting went perfectly.
One thing I found odd was that checkin was at 4:00 (total waste of a day)! A bit surprised considering the price. There was an option for early checkin at noon but I had to inquire. Chalets Oasis should always assume early checkin is preferable. It costs an additional (somewhat insulting) 35$ but I would have paid for it.
Upon our arrival we noticed the outside was littered with cigarette butts and shards of glass.
Look don't get me wrong, it was a great location, a huge house and plenty of amenities. Lakeside was perfect and had a great time with the family.
It's clear however the owners do NOT even visit here otherwise they would have noticed that:
- most hinges and door handles need to be replaced
- bathtub stoppers don't work (remember, kids need baths :) )
- loose/cracked tiles here and there
- and other tiny details that most people probably wouldn't care about
Again I refer to the price and suggest that Chalets Oasis needs to focus on the final touches and stop continuing to kick the repair can down the road.
Yes I would recommend the chalet but if by chance there was another one at the same price I would try that one.
This is a great place if you are looking for a large house for multiple families....and plan on doing Lake activities!! The owner was always readily available to answer texts and even pass by the house when we required assistance!
We recently stayed at Moose 33 and I must say it was exactly what we were looong for. 14 girls slept comfortably in shared rooms with plenty of space. No one felt on top of one another. The hot tub and sauna were a great bonus! There was direct lake access with shared use of kayaks and a canoe. The house was beautiful and well kept! With how rainy it's been we were concerned about bugs, but I personally escaped without a bite! Quick and friendly responses from staff! 20 minutes from the st. sauveur outlets and polar bears club spa! Would most definitely return!!
Had a great weekend at the Moose 33. Lots of space to spread out. Pretty scenery . Only 20 minutes from St Saveur for shopping and skiing. Will come back again .
We used to have a log cabin on Lake Cook (Blue Hills, Morin Heights) and that was a reason for renting a house in the vicinity of Saint Sauveur and Morin Heights. Fiddler's lake was as clean and nice as Lake Cook and the house had everything we could hope for. Even in a rainy day there was a lot to do indoors - great kitchen, dining room, big heater room, awesome bedrooms and bathrooms. The only drawback for my husband who is 95 was the steep path to the lake e=whic of course could not do. But the outdoor whirpool and the sauna compensated for it. The area is as beautiful as we remembered. I strongly recommend it.

We spend a great week at the lakehouse. It was spacious and so beautiful. The house is near every family activities in the Laurentides. And what a nice lake just down the house!
