1 hour 45 minutes from Montreal

Those looking for a decent cottage-chalet hybrid that's fit for luxuriating in would do well to book a stay at this spot.

The best part's its nearby beach in the summer and a full ice skating track in the winter.

We're totally digging this glass-enclosed cabin situated on an escarpment that gives you the feeling of walking through treetops.

Don't let the manicured exterior of the property fool you: Once you're lounging inside and enjoying all of its classic cabin interior decor of wood and plaid, only taking breaks for leisurely strolling throughout its five acres, you'll be enjoying the seclusion and tranquility it offers in no time. One feature about this that we're particularly digging here is the lazy river that run nearby, as the owners encourage summer-goers to float down it for 45 minutes until its private dock.

A treehouse-style cabin for views of treetops and the nearby L'Assomption River? Check. Personalized spa fixtures like hot tubs on their own separate patios, plus fireplaces? Check. A private environment? More than one property of its type to rent out? Hiking trails and easy access to water? Check, check and check. Sure, it's a more luxurious setup than your average proper cabin, but hey! You're worth it. This one's particularly good for a romantic trip into the woods.

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 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 why you're looking for woodsy escapes, isn't it?
