Why You Need To Go: For a stay with a view, how about the Yurta Yurt? This Mongolian-inspired property is like a little slice of paradise in Harrington, just 1.5 hours from Ottawa. It's in the forest and doesn't have electricity, water or air-conditioning, so it's closer to a camping experience than a hotel stay. That said, it's got extraordinary views of the neighbouring mountains, and you might even enjoy switching off your phone for the night!
