hinterhouse

This tiny Scandinavian cottage in the Canadian forest is the ultimate getaway

Hinterhouse may be small in size, but this Scandinavian-inspired cottage is making big waves; the tiny home has racked up over 12,000 Instagram followers, and it's easy to see why.

The cozy little cottage is nestled deep in the wilderness, just 15 minutes from Quebec's Mont-Tremblant Ski Resort.

The minimalist cabin is designed to give guests an uninterrupted view of nature.

Hinterhouse might be small, but it doesn't skimp on luxurious features; the house is equipped with a rotating fireplace, two bedrooms, and even a private sauna located nearby.

The cabin is composed of 60 per cent glass, and there are purposely no curtains, offering guests some seriously cool views.

Wooden shutters allow visitors to control the amount of light.

The sleek, prefab design is inspired by traditional Scandinavian and Japanese designs.

The 16-foot-wide cabin was assembled on site, and with its bare-bones wooden structure, it truly does look like a natural fixture in the landscape.

In an eco-friendly move, the Hinter Company has also pledged to plant 10 trees for every booking of hinterhouse.

With its unique location, hinterhouse might just be the ideal retreat for Canadians looking to travel off-the-grid this winter (except for this house on an island).
