You Can Sleep Under The Stars In Ottawa's Totally Off-Grid 'Isolation Tree House'

Throw it all the way back to childhood!

Let’s go barking up the right tree this summer. If unplugging and unwinding are at the top of your to-do list, as they should be, then this all-season treehouse Airbnb in Ontario is the place for you. Between the twinkle lights and picturesque setting, you’ll probably never want to leave this nostalgic oasis.

Narcity may receive a portion of sales if you purchase something from this article, which was created independently by Narcity's editorial team just for you.

Located deep within a 100-acre forest in Ottawa, you won’t find any electricity or running water at this treehouse. 

Instead, you can hang out in the treetops, playing board games and soaking in panoramic nature views.

One night in this dreamy treehouse will run you between $190 and $220. 

But don’t worry, the cozy little cottage sleeps three people, so you could split the costs with your besties if you wanted to.

The treehouse towers nine feet in the air and features a woodburning stove that will keep you warm and toasty all year long. 

In the summer months, guests can explore the surrounding area with a canoe that’s included in your rental. 

And in the winter, you can wander around on the provided cross-country skis.

But no matter what time of year it is, this treetop cabin will have you feeling like a kid again.

From the small balcony, you can look out over a charming pond that almost reminds us of Shrek's swamp. 

And much like Shrek, you’ll be totally isolated from nosy neighbours and bustling city life when you spend the night here. 

So if you’re looking to trade the sounds of traffic for the sounds of bullfrogs and songbirds, why not give this spot a try?

Inside is pretty simple, with pine and white oak boards setting a warm, cozy vibe.

Naturally, the strings of twinkle lights help keep that snug feeling going strong as well. 

There is a hand-washing-and-drinking station on site with unlimited water refills.

However, to get to the composting bathroom, you’ll need to walk for about three minutes.

And in the summer you can rinse off in a rustic outdoor shower.

So if you're looking for whimsical staycation ideas so you can live your best life before summer's over, it might be time to head to the treehouse.

If that off-grid life appeals to you, here's your new favourite spot.
