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.
