Owner/operators of Lac Labbé
Just to get things started here are a few questions we have encountered:
How many chalets are there? We currently rent two chalets the Bourgeois (12 person) and the Senat (16 person). We live on-site and are easily accessible for any questions or issues that may arise during your stay. The buildings are spread over a 10 acre zone so each building has privacy.
Is there enough boats for everyone? The boats are shared and in 2 years we have not had an issue with a shortage. We have 2 paddleboards, 3 pedalos, 5 kayaks, 1 canoe, and 3 rowboats. You are also welcome to bring your own. We also have plenty of life jackets however parents should bring their own flotation for young children.
Is there fishing at Lac Labbé? We do not stock Lac Labbé with sport fish – the ecosystem in the lake has naturally evolved over time. The fish are plentiful and small and some children really enjoy catching and releasing them from the deck. Don’t skip your groceries or you might be disappointed ?
Are the chalets air conditioned? No, due to our elevation the weather is not excessively hot and humid in Rivière-à-Pierre however fans are provided for those few exceptionally warm evenings.
Are pets permitted? Ours is exceptionally well behaved. We have decided to implement a no pet policy for several reasons and we have no reason to believe that your pet is anything but wonderful, however;
- some guests are highly allergic to pets.
- other guests will not consider renting accommodation that has had pets in it because they consider it unclean. We have taken exceptional care to keep the rental premises exceptionally clean and pet free including our own pets.
- We have 2 dogs which we keep in our living space, and walk on a leash whenever guests are present. We also have 2 outdoor cats which keep a low profile when strangers arrive.
- Service animals are permitted
