Are you dreaming of a nice weekend getaway? With the stifling heat that Montreal is currently experiencing, I don't blame you. A little time out in nature by a lake is something we could all use right about now.

Enter: the "floating loft." This beautiful Airbnb located just 30 minutes outside of Montreal is the cottage getaway that I didn't know I needed.
This dreamy cottage, which is actually a houseboat, has it all: a wonderful lakeside view, a sunny deck, a cozy bed and an adorable kitchenette. The best part? It's only $56 a night!
This house boat is well-equipped to welcome modern-day travellers: the host states that "the house is also connected to electricity, which gives access to a plasma TV with satellite antenna, a refrigerator, a microwave oven, an induction plate and of course, lighting."
The boat also has a cool weather heating system and a fan for hot weather. This will make your stay super pleasant on a warm day like today.
There are windows on almost every wall so you'll feel like you're outside even when you're not.
Just look at how cozy and romantic this getaway would be: drinking wine on the patio, cozying up inside, watching the stars! One guest review states that they even saw otters. Does it get more adorable than that??
Unfortunately, the host does not recommend that you swim in the river due to strong currents. However, you can fish, and enjoy the beautiful scenery!
The guest reviews are all great, which means that it lives up to its romantic, cozy promise of a great weekend.
