Be a tourist in the outdoors paradise of Canada

The porch winds like a plane over the backyard.

On the one-acre, secluded spread you’ll find two stone walls set in three wooden steps along with a shed, and two bedrooms, a living area, pantry, a composting toilet and a bathroom.

The property comprises 1,047 square feet, with rooms illuminated by low-energy solar panels.

Wind turbines run round the acreage, behind which the Labrador River flows in the summer, trapping organic material for recycling.

You can bike, kayak, dive, run or get some workout, all from a cushioned perch built from an outhouse’s reclaimed concrete foundation and decorated with photos, bottles and postcards from around the world.

Photographs of former prime minister Pierre Trudeau adorn the wood-and-brick walls along with an image of the spacecraft humans would live on following the 1972 moon landing. This cottage was designed for the long-term tourist.

What you’ll pay for it: A two-bedroom cottage with a large deck will start at more than $200,000.
