3 hours from Montreal

Floating on the Paugan reservoir of the Gatineau River, the "Nellie" is a 24-foot houseboat that is about as rustic as an Airbnb can get. Ask the host and you'll have it 'parked' in a secluded spot where you can swing from its hammock and let the days melt away. There are tons of activities if you get lonely, including a treasure hunt created by the hosts; none of that is obligatory, however. True seclusion doesn't get better than just sprawling on its deck and enjoying summer days.

What’s the budget range? In the mid-ranges for a remote adventure with peaceful natural surroundings. 

What’s it like to stay here? The houseboat is a pretty snug and intimate setting, while the cove is the perfect opportunity to take a canoe out on the water.

8. The Belvédère Yurt in L'Ange-Gardien, Quebec

Distance: 2 hours from Montreal

Yurts are prime spots for a good glamping experience, and this is one of the best ones near Montreal. Coming with everything you need for rest and relaxation, the owners have outfitted it plenty so you can come in with minimal effort. However, if your idea of seclusion is complete silence, this might not be ideal as it's neighboured by a dogsled farm; but we've included it because the sound of a howling dog in the night can be relaxing for some, no matter how unsettling it can be for others.

What’s the budget range? If you're looking for budget-friendly, the price is right. 

What’s it like to stay here? The yurt has quite a rustic, cozy feel to it. Not to mention the jaw-dropping mountain views. The domed ceiling window is particularly cool when the stars are out. Though, not so cool (literally) if you're headed here in warmer months. 

Rooms: 3 beds, 1 bath. Sleeps 4.

Distance: Plot twist, you're still in Montreal ... 

Okay, so this isn’t actually outside of Montreal, but it’s still secluded AF. The cozy loft here is made up of a glass veranda and is two stories high, meaning sunlight pours in from outside to wake you up every morning.
