This Tiny Dream Cabin For Rent 3 Hours From Montreal Lets You Sleep Amongst The Trees

The fact that the Quebec-Ontario border reopened yesterday has further expanded our travel options — and at this point in the pandemic, we're seriously excited about the idea of driving to Quebec's neighbouring province and renting a tiny cabin somewhere off-the-grid.

Cue this incredible little "Cabinscape" cabin you can rent in Eastern Ontario on Rideau Valley Conservation land in the beautiful Tay Valley. 

Editor's Choice: The Quebec-Ontario Border Is Now Open & Here's What That Means

With huge windows and a garage-style door, it makes you feel like you're sleeping amongst the trees... minus any bugs or dirt.

While the cabin is technically "off-grid," it is modernized and solar-powered with electricity.

The cabin has a kitchen with a mini-fridge, sink (with drinkable water), and stovetop as well as all the cookware you'd need.

There's also an outdoor shower, but — don't worry — the cabin has an indoor toilet.

Thanks to the cabin's remote location, you can relax, canoe, fish, hike, swim in the lake, cycle, read or stargaze with little noise or distraction — and the cabin's even fully equipped for winter stays, when you can snowshoe on surrounding trails.
