As kids we all loved treehouses. They were the exciting little escape into a fantasy world where we could play high above the ground and plot our adventures. As adults some of that adventurous spirit still lies within us but now it’s mixed with a dream of a luxurious home and a peaceful getaway.
A smaller and lower cottage can feel very secure and intimate a little space within a vast nature to be enjoyed in. It really puts itself in the center of attention without being too extravagant. The Godendart cabin is located Parc National de la Jacques Cartier only 4 hours North of Montréal.
On first look you would be forgiven for believing that this gorgeous home is set in a calm and tranquil suburb far off from a big city and its constant rush. But set on a leafy and secluded lot in the offers a serene oasis that allows its residents to escape the rigors sights and sounds of the urban jungle that surrounds them.
Wood cabins are often of a smaller size but when you find a bigger cabin you will clearly see that it doesn’t lose any of its coziness and security. It’s just a supersized version of a log cabin ready to be enjoyed in the middle of the natural setting. Even the simplest cabin can have a unique element that makes it memorable and significant. This adorable tiny cabin has two tiny hearts engraved onto the window shutters and it creates an incredibly meaningful exterior.
It is the ground floor that contains the main bedrooms which stretch into the beautifully curated gardens and walkways outside. The natural pool and the massive man-made lagoon help cool the building further cutting back on its energy needs even while providing the perfect backdrop for evenings that range from the intimate and romantic to those with unending parties.
When we combine these philosophies we get a modern version of a treehouse – a beautiful house among the trees that can serve as a permanent residence or your favorite vacation spot. Check out some of the most down below!

This is precisely why homeowners in the last decade are increasingly opting for rear additions and smart makeovers to give their aged residences a new lease of life.
