Location of the cottages
Our cottages are all located in the Saint-Sauveur area, near Morin-Heights. We are located about 55 minutes from Montreal and Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport and about 90 minutes from Ottawa.

Norwegian and Finnish:
Do not follow the GPS suggestion to exit via Saint-Jérôme. The best route is Autoroute 50 (Guy-Lafleur).
If there is a lot of traffic on autoroute 15, take autoroute 640 from the 13 or 15 and once on the 640, take exit 25 Arthur Sauvé and continue via Mirabel.
For those wishing to pass through Saint-Sauveur :
Be careful, as the GPS doesn’t indicate it, route 329 has just been closed for the summer between Morin-Heights and Mille-Isles (roadworks).
Unfortunately, GPS (Google Maps, Waze, etc.) have not updated their maps. You’ll have to take the Côte Saint-Gabriel road.
