Off-Grid Tiny Cabin in Ottawa Takes You Back to the Basics

Looking for the perfect, cozy place to stay this winter? This Ottawa Cabin on the Bay couldn’t get much better with its wood-burning stove and secluded location.

Despite being tucked in a private spot in the woods, it’s nearby to all the amenities you could need. It is off-grid, but solar power keeps the lights on and allows you to charge a phone. There’s no running water, but an outhouse gives you a place to go. Inside you’ll find a small kitchenette for making coffee and maybe some pancakes, and up the ladder is the cozy loft bedroom. You can book a stay on Airbnb or follow the cabin on Instagram.

    Love this cabin! But how does one bathe? All good if the method is a washcloth and a basin, just wondering. The loft and everything about this build is inviting. No matter the season, I would love to spend (lots and lots of) time there.
