Summer in Ontario is all about spending time in the great outdoors. But if you’re like me, and don’t do camping… you may be a little discouraged to plan a weekend out in the wilderness. However, after scouring across Airbnb in the search to find a quick little weekend getaway that didn’t involve pitching a tent, I was delighted to find so many cute places to stay that were the perfect alternatives!
So here is my list of the cutest cabins to rent on
Log Cabin on the Lake
This super cute log cabin is located in Gravenhurst. Overlooking the lake, it has all the amenities you will need for the perfect little getaway (including an indoor sauna!). Check out this Airbnb here for more info.
Finch Ridge Eco-Nest
About 4.5 hours north-east of Toronto, near Golden Lake, you will find the most adorable little boathouse. Although it’s not really a cabin, I still had to add it to my list. With beautiful scenery and a lakeshore view, you will experience a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere and get to enjoy the beauty that this boathouse has to offer. Also how cute is that red telephone booth? The decor and style of this little boathouse

Cabin on a private lake. Need I say more? This quaint, remote cabin is located in Restoule and offers all the activities to make for a fun-filled stay. Kayaking, canoeing, snowshoeing and skiing are just some of the activities that you can do. See here if you are ready to book your next perfect little getaway!

When I came across this Airbnb I instantly fell in love! How cute is this little cabin?! I’ve never seen anything like this before. Located in Essex county, this floating wine barrel offers the most unique experience ever. And bonus – this floating cabin is situated minutes away from local wineries! Check it out here!

Raðljóst: An 1850’s Log Cabin in the Woods
If you are really looking to experience the great outdoors, then look no further! This rustic cabin is surrounded by woods and is close to Algonquin. With no running water, you will have to be prepared to spend your getaway a little more ruggid. However, the payoff is worth it as you will be surrounded by the sound of nature in the depths of the woods and left to relax and unwind in the wilderness. Check it out here!
Nature’s Harmony – Shamayim Cabin
Nature’s Harmony is located right above Algonquin Park in a town called Mattawan. Recently Joel and I spent two nights here in the Shamayim Cabin where we were forced to be away from our electronics (no service out here!) and electricity. Needless to say, it put our relationship to the test! Luckily, we survived and managed to keep ourselves entertained with campfires, board games, and smores. We even ventured onto the lake by canoe (after having an almost near-death experience being attacked by mosquitoes). It was totally off-the-grid, tucked away into the wilderness and was the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of life back home. And of
If you want to switch it up and stay in something different, Nature’s Harmony also offers a yurt and a glamping tent. We opted to spend one night in the glamping tent and we were pleasantly surprised! It’s fully equipped with all the basic amenities so you can enjoy a night in the great outdoors without the hassle of pitching a tent! Check it out here for more info!
