The Place: Washagami Landing

Driving Time From Toronto: 4.5 hours

Style: Camp Chic

Amenities: Although you can stay in cabins, we recommend opting for the Yurta, which sits at the edge of a lake and includes a bed and pullout couch and mini fridge. A BBQ means you can book your own food and a sauna just a short walk away is perfect for relaxing.

What To Expect: A touch of rusticity (you’ll need to use the close-by outhouse) with a dash of wellness-minded activities (the aforementioned sauna, the quiet lake and plenty of hiking trails are all perfect for unwinding).

Price: Starting at $120 per night, click HERE for more info.

Repere Boreal

The Place: Repere Boreal

Driving Time From Toronto: 9 hours

Style: Modern Rustic Minimalism

Amenities: Expect to find several different cottage types with different amenities (some of washrooms, some don’t), with a central cottage that has washrooms, showers and even a little outdoor spa.

What To Expect: Located outside of Ontario (in Charlevoix, Quebec), Repere Boreal is a stunning collection of cottages that are sleek and modern while also connecting you to the outdoors. For example, each cottage has windows that are strategically placed so that you only see nature (no other cottagers or structures) and some that even extend to the ceiling so that you can fall asleep under the stars.

Price: Starting at $120 per night, click HERE for more info.

Vintage Airstream

The Riverden
