Hi I'm Matt. The cottage was built in the late 1960's by my parents Max and Virginia. My dad was a hard working WWII veteran and built the cottage himself. Following his lead, we have recently completed a two year renovation on the property. Our family has enjoyed many summers at the cottage. We love all that Au Gres and the surrounding waterways have to offer. Whether you want to relax, hike, boat, fish or swim, you'll find it all here in an unspoiled, natural environment. We look forward to having you as our guest and hope you love the cottage as much as we do.
