If there’s ever been a reason to leave the city and hole up in the woods for a few days, this is it. This breathtaking Airbnb is nestled in the wilderness of La Conception, Quebec, which is about a 6-hour drive from Toronto, and it offers cabin living with a modern twist. The property is described as a one-of-a-kind, Scandinavian-style architectural piece and it even has its own name — hinterhouse. According to its Instagram, it was nominated for Architectural Digest’s building of the year in 2021.
While it’s only a 15-minute drive from Mont Tremblant, hinterhouse feels like a remote oasis among the trees. It’s a 10-minute hike from Lac Long and a 5-minute drive to Riviere Rouge, where you can relax on beaches and rent canoes or kayaks in the summer.
The home has two bedrooms, each with a queen-sized bed, making it the perfect place to stay for two couples or a small family. The home’s design allows you to feel fully immersed in nature — the rooms intentionally do not have blinds or curtains, to maximize the natural light and views. However, there are large wooden shutters outside of the home that can be adjusted to your liking.
In addition to a cozy fireplace, the home also features a sauna and an outdoor shower, which are worth the stay all on their own. The house is free from distractions and encourages simple and minimalist living.
The Airbnb listing says that it’s pet-friendly, and the property’s Instagram is filled with photos of dogs relaxing in front of the picture windows. There’s wifi and a TV with Netflix to make you feel at home. It seems like a dream, but don’t take it from us — the near-perfect reviews say it all!
