For the first time in over a century, a campground outside of Edmonton is offering cabin rentals for visitors, and they’re looking pretty darn nice. Welcome to Camp Yowochas, which has been operated by the Edmonton YWCA since 1916.
And in all that time, they’ve never had to do something like this. However, being forced to shut down camping options this year has left them with pretty much no other choice. So, they teamed up with Edmonton designer and artist Justine Ma. Then, they got some additional support from Ikea and Home Depot to renovate the spaces.
We are incredibly excited to open The Cabins at @Yowochas! These lakeside cabins, were decorated by #YEG‘s own @justinemadesign. 2020 has been a stressful, uncertain time for all, & we hope they can become a safe, close & affordable refuge for those wanting to connect w/ nature. pic.twitter.com/PEUfmamdQS

Now, there are two new options for the perfect fall getaway. The Cabin, priced at $150/night, can sleep 6 people and has both heating and electricity. Meanwhile, the Yurt can sleep the same amount, but a lack of electricity at the moment means you get a discount, at $100/night.
So, definitely keep this in mind while you plan a fall weekend getaway. Nothing like a cabin in the woods to ease your anxiety, are we right?
