Beautiful Treehouse-Style Cabins on Stilts – Full Tour

Beautiful Treehouse-Style Cabins on Stilts – Full Tour

In this video, we take a tour of 2 tree house-style cabins on stilts at the Canopée Lit eco-resort in Sacré Coeur, Québec.

The first one we see is a summer cabin.  It’s just one simple room with a double bed and they gave it a rustic interior design look by using unfinished wood panelling and branches so that it literally feels like the cabin was carved out of the forest.  One thing we really like about this cabin is the big bubble skylight above the bed.  It makes the room nice and bright during the day, and it would be cool for looking at the stars at night.  There’s also a horizontal curtain that you can pull across the skylight to keep the room dark in the morning or to keep the sun from heating up the room too much.  There’s a huge balcony outside with a great view and a functional little kitchen. There’s also a breakfast box on a pulley that the resort uses to deliver your breakfast in the morning. There is a composting toilet and shower at the bottom of the stairs.

The second cabin is an all-season cabin.  They’ve got a bedroom in the loft up a curving staircase.  The kitchen and sitting area are indoors in this one and they look a bit more comfortable although you do lose the camping feel of the summer cabin. The composting toilet, shower and sink are inside too which is nice and it looks like the shower stall is made out of an old wine barrel.

The cabins all have 1 solar panel and a propane heater but we don’t think they’re completely off the grid.  There are half a dozen of these cabins spaced out along some trails but they’re still within walking distance of the resort’s main cabin where you can get access to wifi, eat at the restaurant, play board games & stuff like that.

You can see that the cabins aren’t true treehouses since they’re built on stilts but they still give you a great view, and it’s a good alternative if you want to build a tall structure like this but don’t have a mature tree to build it in.

I was wondering about the blinds, I would not want to wake up to sun in the eyes every morning!

Could you put together holiday getaway places to rent in one guide? I am always looking for this type of accommodation.

Asger Vernersen says:

I'm trying to figure out how this is considered a eco resort? I just think its crazy that primitive buildings out of commercially milled lumber can be considered Eco. I enjoy watching your adventures though.

Your videos are really good. I like that a lot of the content is Canadian as well seeing as I've lived and travelled all over the country. Mostly by alternative transport I might add…7000 km solo bcycle trip, 6000 km solo canoe trip etc.
Keep up the good work. Hope to see something here from Northwestern Ontario soon.
