A huge fire pit that's down near the river gives you all the waterfront views, where you can sit around and roast marshmallows at for the perfect fall night.

The star of the show here might just be the in-deck hot tub that has a fantastic hillside view of the river and lushforest foliage.

There's also a few hammocks and rocking chairs on each of the decks, so there's a number of places for everyone to kick back, relax, and hang out at.

The entire interior of the house is just to die for, with spa-like bathrooms and a cozy cabin meets modern feel that looks like something you'd see in an HGTV show.

Ontario’s Interprovincial Border Restrictions Are Over & Here’s What That Means

You can drive in and out of Quebec and Manitoba to your heart's content.

At 12:01 a.m. on June 16, Ontario's border restrictions between Manitoba and Quebec were officially lifted.

This means that anyone driving in and out of Ontario will no longer have to go through checkpoints at the border that were monitored by local enforcement.

Prior to today, interprovincial land and water travel was limited to essential reasons only, such as work, medical purposes, moving to a different province, attending school, or any other reason outlined in the provincial order.

However, there were some exemptions to the border restrictions. For example, travelling between the provinces by bus, train, ferry, or flight, was permitted. The border checkpoints caused significant traffic delays at the Ottawa-Gatineau crossing when the order came into effect in April.

Ottawa's mayor Jim Watson was happy to see the restrictions end. "I am happy to learn that travel restrictions will be lifted between Ontario and Québec this Wednesday," he tweeted on Monday. "After months of wasted police resources to control travel around the NCR, our two highly integrated economic regions will greatly benefit from this decision."

If COVID-19 has reinforced anything, it's the importance of supporting your community and local businesses.

The pandemic has had a devastating impact on the Canadian economy. And while the long-term effects of the pandemic are still unknown, there's no doubt that local businesses have suffered immensely and are still struggling to survive.

Toronto's small and locally owned businesses are woven into the fabric of the city. They're what make its neighbourhoods vibrant. But with a year full of unexpected challenges, finding creative ways to stay afloat has been tough.

If you want to help your city but don't know how or are short on cash, there's a new opportunity to support small businesses in Toronto — and it doesn't cost much.

Ryerson Is Now Requiring Students Living In Residence To Get A COVID-19 Vaccine

Other Ontario universities are implementing the same rules.

Ryerson University is now requiring all students living in residence during its 2021-2022 school year to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

According to the university, the requirement, which is supported by public health authorities, will help the school provide a "safe residence experience" for incoming students during the pandemic.

"This requirement is specific to students in residence because of the nature of communal living, the high volume of cases and incidence rates among young populations, and to foster a welcoming and engaging community for students on our campus," a spokesperson for Ryerson told Narcity.

All students living on-campus will be required to get at their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days before their move-in date.

The announcement is on the heels of other Ontario universities. Both the University of Toronto and Western University have announced that students living in residence need to be vaccinated.
