Vanderhoof, BC — $92,000

Located in a small town near Prince George in central British Columbia, this two bedroom A-framed cabin has been the current owners’ “home away from home” for over 10 years. It’s within walking distance from Cluculz Lake and has a galley kitchen, loft, and beautiful deck. The only downside to this rural escape is that there is no running water. However, according to the owners, the “neighbours have a great flowing well so there is a good water supply, and the outhouse gives a person the camping experience.”

Cherry Beach Resort, ON — $125,000

Located in Prince Edward County’s Cherry Valley, this cabin at Cherry Beach Resort is a great vacation home for Ontario residents. Only two years old, the cabin features two bedrooms, a full-sized kitchen, and a large outdoor living area with its own flat screen television.
