10 spectacular places to rent for the weekend (or longer!)

We think you've earned it

Sometimes we all need a change of scenery to excite the senses, get the creative juices flowing, or just kick back and relax. Luckily, a home away from home is just a few clicks (or taps) away. Here are some spectacular cottages, homes, and other places we think you should rent… right now!


Blue Mountain Gaming Chalet

If you’re looking for a place where there’s always something to do, this Gaming Chalet located at the top of Blue Mountain is flush with activities like foosball, ping-pong, and pool. When you finish taking in all the beautiful scenery from the comfort of the hot tub, you can always take a short trip down Blue Mountain too!


Huntsville Couple Chalet

Most of you might not be looking for more alone time with your partner, after all, you got plenty of that in the past few months. If you are though, this Couple Chalet in Huntsville is the perfect romantic weekend getaway. Snuggle by the fire, watch the sunset in the hot tub, and enjoy dinner in the (bug-free) gazebo.


Caesarea Lakefront Cottage

Just outside of the Kawartha Lakes region, Caesarea is a cosy little lakefront community that is the perfect spot for a weekend of fun in the sun. Fishing and canoeing are just a few of the activities the whole family will love at this spacious Lakefront Cottage. At the end of the day, mom and dad can enjoy a cold drink on the dock while the kids splash around in the lake.



Friday Harbour Condo

Who says you have to travel far to have an amazing weekend? Rent a beautiful Friday Harbour Condo and enjoy some resort-style living with fantastic 360 views from the rooftop patio and leisurely strolls on the boardwalk. Check out some nature trails, do some yoga on the beach, and wrap it all up with a delicious seafood dinner at Fishbone. What could be better?


Penetanguishene Beach House

This Penetanguishene Beach House is the ideal launching point for your boat tour weekend. The best way to see Georgian Bay is up close and thankfully you will never be far from dipping your feet in the cool, clear water or taking a trip in the 4-person paddle boat.


Collingwood Chalet

Picture-esque doesn’t even begin to describe this Collingwood Chalet. A log cabin bathed in natural light through the large windows, it’s spacious, rustic, and inviting. Take a day trip to Blue Mountain followed by a quiet night roasting marshmallows next to the pond. Perfect for a romantic getaway or some much needed R&R.



Orillia Hidden Gem

There isn’t much that this Hidden Gem can’t provide. Explore Downtown Orillia and grab lunch at Mariposa Market, spend a day at Lake Couchiching, or be dazzled by the lights and sounds of Casina Rama. It’s city, country, and small-town living, all rolled into one!


Whitney Buckaroo Tent

Don’t let the thought of heavy lifting or sleeping in a dingy old tent deter you from going camping. The Buckaroo Tent in Whitney is an excellent alternative for those looking for minimalist comfort but want a little bit more than pitching their own tent in the middle of the woods. It’s also just minutes from the gorgeous Algonquin Park and is also relatively easy on the budget!


Gravenhurst Private Island

If you’ve been thinking over the past few months: “Huh, I could get used to this whole isolation thing”, you might be interested in renting this Gravenhurst Cottage on its very own private island. Gather nine people, park at the private lot, and take the boat over to your weekend paradise complete with fishing, swimming, kayaking, and more.


Stayner Petite Paris

We would all love a trip to France right now, but unfortunately, it’s not the best time. Don’t worry though, you can get all the atmosphere of the French countryside thanks to Petite Paris in Stayner. With beautiful French decor, cute farm animals to see, and an indoor pool and hot tub, you’ll have a hard time saying “Au Revoir” to Petite Paris.
