Canada has thousands of inland waterways surrounded by forests, and thousands of miles of coastline. On the shores of most of the rivers, lakes and oceans are cottages and cabins, many of which can be rented by the day, the week or the month.
Cottages and cabins are not overly expensive, often the same rate as hotels in the same area. However, if staying for an extended period of time, or if there are a group of guests sharing the same cottage or cabin, the cost per person can end up being significantly less expensive than it would be for a comparable stay in a hotel.
Every province and territory in Canada has cabins owned by someone willing to rent their property out when they’re not using it. Likewise, there are a great many cottages and cabins built specifically to be rented out on a temporary basis. Some of these cottages are remote, while others are closer to cities and their amenities. There are cottages in areas that are more suited for winter leisure activities, such as downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, etc. than they are summertime activities. While others are more suited to summer stays. There are also cottages that were built for year round use. In short, there are cottages for rent in Canada to suit everyone.
Following are a list of cottages and/or cabins offered for rent. The list is sorted by province and alphabetically..
