Who’s it for?
A tailored off-grid experience for solo visits, couples, or groups.

Price: ~ $200/night

Let’s kick things off with CabinScape. It’s a Canadian company providing customers with an off-grid cabin… escape.

At the time of writing, they operate in Haliburton, Kawarthas, Calabogie and Lanark County. These tiny home cabins are graded as either ‘high remote’ (completely isolated cabins), ‘low remote’ (a secluded getaway, all the while being next to general amenities), or ‘medium remote’ (somewhere between the two).

We love the variation this offers and the confidence it allows guests when booking their trip.

Note that all these tiny homes are off-grid, stressing the importance of being ecological and careful with your power consumption. This means things like gas stoves or BBQs for cooking, an indoor composting toilet, and just one electrical outlet for charging electrical devices.

Need a break from the hectic? Why not take a closer look?

Luxury Tiny Home Mountain Retreat

Who’s it for?
A scenic family escape.

Price: $225/night
Province: Alberta

Located in Crowsnest Pass, the Whispering Birch was built by none other than Teacup Tiny Homes. Quality is a given here.

The interior is sleek and modern, as you’d expect from a Teacup. You’ll find a full kitchen and bathroom in this tiny home, with not one but two loft bedrooms! One comes with a king bed, and there are two singles in the other (although, being mattresses, you could always push them together if you visit with another couple). This means comfortably sleeping four, but the sofa bed allows for another one or two guests if necessary.

The Crowsnest Pass site is home to other tiny houses, some of which are long-term rentals, so you’ll get a good idea of what tiny home living is truly all about. It’s only a few minutes away from Blairmore, and you can drive, walk, or cycle to visit the many restaurants, pubs, tourist attractions, and grocery stores.

The Boathouse

Who’s it for?
A romantic lake getaway for two.

Price: $177/night
Province: Ontario

The Boathouse is a mix of subtlety and vibrancy and defines ‘chic’. It’s in the Golden Lakes region, on the water’s edge. Sit on the deck area and take in the views as you relax in the peace and quiet.

Inside you get a full kitchen and bathroom, complete with a wood stove in the living space. There’s also a large bed, an outdoor fire pit and a propane BBQ.

This is a fully-equipped escape – you won’t be roughing it here! Alongside the high-speed Wi-Fi, there are a seasonal swimming pool, complimentary bicycles for exploring, and access to kayaks, canoes and paddleboards. You’ll also get complimentary passes to Algonquin Park.

There’s also an EV charger. This feature alone makes The Boathouse unique and perfect if you’ll drive your electric car to your stay.

Second Breakfast Hideaway

Who’s it for?
Anyone who knows what “What about second breakfast?” or “Fool of a Took!” means.

Price: $391/night
Province: BC

Half an hour from Osoyoos in BC, you will find this earth home. With a custom-built space dedicated to the movies and even elvish writing on the walls, putting this one on our list was irresistible!

As tiny home vacation stays go, this is about as unique as you can imagine. There’s no TV or Wi-Fi, pushing you to get outside and enjoy the wildlife, Crownland hikes, or simply the home itself. You’ll have plenty of time for a board game or cooking on the outside grill.

Note that this is a really off-grid experience, so plan and pack accordingly.

“For the time will soon come when hobbits will shape the fortunes of all.”

Kasshabog Lake

Who’s it for?
Up to two adventurous people wanting a getaway.

Price: $218/night
Province: Ontario

Are you absolutely in love with Ontario’s nature scene? Lakes and forests are where you want to be spending every available second?

Then this cabin on Kasshabog Lake is definitely for you. It’s situated on an island in the midst of the water, complete with a deck, outdoor kitchen, barbecue, hammock, and steps to go swimming.

In an almost yurt fashion, the bed occupies this tiny cabin almost entirely. You’ll also find a small table and fridge for convenience. This encourages you to spend nearly all your day outside, soaking up the weather and enjoying the peace and quiet.

Kasshabog Lake is a small freshwater lake, approximately halfway between Toronto and Ottawa (as the crow flies).

Baco House: Cozy. Comfortable. Close.

Who’s it for?
A tiny home escape in the Niagara region.

Price: $189/night
Province: Ontario

Baco House is a tiny home located on a farm in the Niagara region. In fact, you’re only 20 minutes or so from the Falls, making this a great stopover location for tourists or wine connoisseurs.

You’ll find a charming little farmstead-inspired kitchen, allowing you to be self-sufficient for your stay. (Of course, this is Niagara, so there are plenty of local restaurants, wineries and breweries if you prefer!)

There’s an upstairs loft space bedroom to sleep two, with a full bathroom including running water and an off-grid toilet.

Who’s it for?
A weekend/week-long getaway for up to three sets of couples.

Price: $700/night
Province: Quebec

Okay, so the KLĪNT isn’t technically a tiny home. It’s too big, but we think the spirit is there and, if you have a bigger group, this is your chance to enjoy that spirit all together!

KLĪNT, ten minutes from Tremblant, Quebec, is an “invitation to slow living for a timeless stay.”

Think of it as a tiny home with more space for a greater number of people (although it isn’t safe for kids or pets, being perched on the side of a cliff!). This is the ideal spot if you’re looking for a relaxing getaway with friends.

Huge panoramic windows line all the walls, connecting you with the surrounding nature, even inside. A sleek, Scandinavian style (who doesn’t love that?!) brings simplicity and openness, perfect for evening board games or relaxing after hiking around the private trails near Red River.

Did we mention the rotating central wood stove and a hot tub?

Eco-cabin escape off the grid in Muskoka

Who’s it for?
People needing to slow down, take a deep breath, and connect with nature.

Price: $283/night
Province: Ontario

This beautiful cabin can be found on a 60-acre private property in Muskoka (there’s nobody else on-site).

It’s solar-powered and off-grid, but you still get an in-house bathroom, electricity, kitchen, beds, and more. There’s even Wi-Fi, although the hosts strongly discourage you from letting that take away from the surrounding natural environment.

The open-concept design goes back to basics but in a classy way. It truly offers a way to disconnect without sacrificing all of life’s modern amenities and luxuries.

Beach Front Lucier Tiny Cottage

Who’s it for?
A quiet family getaway.

Price: $200/night
Province: Ontario

The Lucier Tiny Cottage is based on the banks of the Ottawa River in a private campground. It’s a tiny home on wheels that can sleep at least four (but possibly five or six!), with the beach and hiking trails just steps away!

We love it when light is maximized in tiny homes, and the Lucier has been constructed with huge windows (most notably on the end). This brings in vast amounts of daylight and contributes to that happy, minimalistic feeling of being connected with nature.

The kitchen’s fully equipped, allowing you to prepare and cook your own food if you want to avoid going out or ordering in. You’ll get a downstairs double bed (an indulgence in a tiny home on wheels!) and a queen bed in the loft. The sofa can be transformed into a bed for additional guests.

The bathroom has a flushing toilet and a hot water shower. Could it get any better?

Tiny home forest retreat with Finnish Sauna

Who’s it for?
Fans of tiny living AND luxury amenities.

Price: $164/night
Province: BC

This tiny home on wheels is parked up to overlook Swan Lake in rural BC. It’s a fantastic example of how tiny houses give owners a unique approach to space allocation.

The upstairs loft bedroom has two skylights and windows on the walls. With glass above you (one for each side of the bed), you can stare up at the sky and fall asleep watching the stars. It doesn’t get much better than that.

It’s not a sizeable tiny home by any means – but it has everything you’ll need. A fully equipped kitchen includes an induction cooktop, an air fryer, and an outside BBQ. Air conditioning is available in summer, and winter heating ensures you’ll be comfortable all year round. The bathroom comes with a composting toilet, a sink and a shower.

Finally, how could we not mention the sauna? Yes, a Finnish, barrel-style sauna is on the property, just waiting for you to use it.
