La Minerve | $995,000 Canadian ($735,000)

An A-frame lakefront chalet with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a wraparound balcony and a private dock.

Set on the shore of Lake Chapleau, a popular fishing spot, this peaked-roof chalet is in La Minerve, a municipality in the Laurentians region of Quebec. Mont-Tremblant, with its ski resorts, golf courses, dining and private airport, is about 30 miles southeast. Hiking and snowmobile trails crisscross the wooded terrain around the property. A commercial strip with a supermarket, bakery, hardware store and library is about a mile north. Montreal is about 109 miles southeast.

As a rural area, the Laurentians region is exempt from Canada’s ban on foreign home buyers, enacted last January and recently extended until 2027.

Size: 1,350 square feet

Price per square foot: $545

Indoors: A great room with living, dining and kitchen areas takes up most of the ground floor. Finished with gleaming pine floors, the room features a wall of windows that nearly reaches the 26-foot cathedral ceiling. The kitchen has brick walls, retro-styled Heartland appliances, an antique cast-iron sink and solid pine cabinets. The main floor also features a bedroom with a barn-style door and a tiled bathroom.

On the second floor, the primary bedroom has French doors that open to a large mezzanine, with lake views through the front windows. The bedroom’s floors, walls and sloping ceilings are solid pine, as are the bathroom’s floors and ceilings. In the basement, a paneled family room offers lake views. Laundry and two additional refrigerators are in the basement.

Outdoor space: The house sits on 1.07 wooded acres. Two patio doors open from the living room to a wraparound balcony with panoramic lake views. The property also includes a detached, heated one-car garage with a second floor for storage. A 40-foot private dock on Lake Chapleau is behind the house.
