For Christmas, we stopped giving each others wrapped presents and we replaced them with cottages. Here is the gift of David: two beautiful nights at Le Renard cottage Coteaux Missisiquoi, Saint-Etienne-de-Bolton in the Eastern Townships.

A rustic weekend without electricity, water or heating; just holy peace. The perfect plan for the weekenders we are.
We take advantage of the best Saturday of the winter to snowshoe in the Trails of the Estrie (hello the beautiful Mississippi River) and squat watchtowers following tracks of deer.
C'est beau en esti, les Estries
Our ecogite is type 10/10: propane two round stove, wood stove, mezzanine, wood chip toilet and wood on all possible surfaces. No wifi, no TV; just candles. A lot of candles.
