This skier’s paradise can sleep up to 12 guests at a time, offering ski-in/ski-out access to one of Canada’s most acclaimed, and most challenging, resorts- Kicking Horse. Also available during the summer months, in case hiking and biking is more your speed.

Speaking of mountain getaways, this option is just 2 minutes away from Main Street and 5 from the Banff Springs Hotel. Golf and hike in the summer, or hit up the many nearby ski resorts in the winter. And do so with some friends, as this spot can also sleep up to 12 people.

Located on 40 acres in the Pretty River Valley, this estate is a one-stop shop for both excitement and relaxation. Spend the day exploring the (private) trails around the property, then enjoy the huge porch and many amenities as the sun goes down and the stars come out.

Port McNicoll

We were so impressed with this option that we decided to cover it on its own! Click here for more information about this private, gated, estate.

Just an hour outside of Montreal, you’ll find this incredible spa-like vacation home. A hot tub, a dry sauna, a private beach on a nearby river… and, the option of a quick drive into the city for a day of culture as well!

If your more about luxury activities, and a luxury home base for them, this could be for you. Located near the St. Lawrence River and Le Massif, it’s a great option for golf-focused getaways in the summer and ski trips in the winter.

Prince Edward Island

Augustine Cove

Maybe it’s just us, but the Atlantic provinces seem to have some of the most beautifully-designed options in the country. This oceanfront option is no different, and is one of the cheapest on this list, with prices starting around $220 a night!

Nova Scotia

It might be located in Blandford, but this waterfront estate is anything but bland. Don’t be fooled by the heritage facade… the stunning home was only built in 2015, using materials imported from all over the world to ensure its aesthetic authenticity.

Margaree Harbour

Last but certainly not least, a stunning waterfront option on Cape Breton Island. Like the Collingwood option, staying here gives you access to some 50 acres of private land to explore, whether you’re hoping for a beachside stroll or a quick afternoon walk.

There you have it- the Vacation Homes of the Year for Canada, according to Vrbo! We don’t know about you, but we’re thinking a little impromptu road trick could be in the cards this spring…
