Sophisticated Style Meets Rustic Charm At This Cottage In Magog, Que.

During the dog days of summer in Quebec’s Eastern Townships, it’s all about hiking, cycling, boating, lakeside lounging and easy-breezy entertaining. Mizia Emond-Lavoie and her partner love to get away to their Magog, Que., home on Lac Memphramagog, just 120 kilometres southeast of Montreal. The couple are known for hosting fun-filled parties that no one ever seems to want to leave. But at times, there wasn’t enough space to accommodate everyone visiting. An additional guest house would be ideal, they decided. For a while, they had wanted to convert an old garage on the property and the time was finally right. It would make the perfect guest cottage. Lockdown life in 2020 gave them the final push they needed. “Things were so uncertain during that time. And if our family wanted to get out of the city, they would have their own private place to stay and still be close to us.”
