Canada’s summer season is around the corner, and with it comes road trips, cottage weekends and the longer days and warmer nights we’ve patiently been waiting for from coast-to-coast-to-coast.
As peak tourism season kicks off, travelers are taking advantage of unique Canadian properties like tiny homes, treehouses, earth homes, barns and boathouses like never before. New data by Airbnb shows that nights booked at unique listings in Canada increased by almost 70 percent last year compared to 2019.
In the spirit of wanderlust, Airbnb is helping to inspire imaginations, fill social feeds and provide some much-needed rest and relaxation for travelers. We’re releasing Canada’s top wishlisted unique stays found in every corner in Canada.
From the cozy Cob Cottage on Vancouver Island and a Mongolian Yurt in the heart of the Yukon, to a Lighthouse on the Bay in Nova Scotia and a spectacular Scandinavian chalet above the sky in Quebec, Canada is chalk full of creative, fascinating, unique and popular one-of-a-kind stays on Airbnb, tailor-made for every traveler’s dream vacation.
And of course, no Canadian travel bucket list is complete without a treehouse adventure surrounded by evergreen, pine and spruce – a treehouse in a private and isolated forest, a one-of-kind two-story treehouse in Ontario, and a treehouse created by our Top New Host of 2021 in BC, amongst many others. Treehouses make up 10 of the top 40 Canadian wishlisted unique stays in 2021.
