For anyone looking for a complete restorative experience during a 'cabin' stay, these forested spas from HOM mini cottages are perfect: Relaxing rides and swims in the lake get coupled with dips in the hot tubs these spots got (even better during snowfalls in the winter), enjoy the peace and quiet of the trees and wildlife around you, and bliss out.

11. The glass-enclosed cabin in Plantagenet, Ontario

1.5 hours from Montreal

We're totally digging this glass-enclosed cabin situated on an escarpment that gives you the feeling of walking through treetops. Enjoy pulling up and backpacking 20 minutes into the forest to reach it, set yourself up and let the peace and quiet overcome you. Stays at this all-season spot give you just enough amenities like cooking equipment and a fireplace while still being bare bones enough to give that good ol' off-the-grid feeling cabins can excel at.

Rooms? One. Sleeps two guests.

Mood? Futuristic glamping. 

Location perks? This cabin's home is super rural and just as charming. Need a little R&R? You got it.

12. The tiny cabin in Mont-Tremblant, Québec

1 hour 45 minutes from Montreal

We're listing this spot for how well it fits into a weekend getaway format. Pull up and set up real easy, and what it lacks in space it makes up for in simplicity. The real point is to spend the majority of your time here by the fire pit or on its patio, walking the forest floor (all 10 acres of it around you!), and packing picnics for trips to the nearby sandy beach that run along a lake. Spend time outdoors when booking here, not indoors; that's why you're looking for woodsy escapes, isn't it?

Rooms? One. Sleeps two guests.

Mood? Tiny house of dreams.

Location perks? Tiny home meets giant forest for the win. Epic indeed.

Budget range? A super budget-friendly option for two.
