Get yourself on one of these tiny getaways (emphasis on the tiny!)

These mini cabins have all the essentials, not to mention being picture-perfect for an Instagram post. Next time you're thinking about a weekend getaway, think smaller.

Of course we dream of elaborate vacations to tropical destinations, or beach-side mansions with all the luxuries and more, but what's really been catching our eye lately is the ultra-instagrammable tiny cabins located in beautiful landscapes all across Canada.

Available for rent on Airbnb, these cabins are no bigger than a couple hundred square feet, but have everything you need from a kitchen, to second-floor bedroom loft, and some even with extra living room space. These cabins are perfect for the minimalist lover, or if the city is getting a little too loud for you. 

The best part about these adorable cozy cabins? How affordable they are! The price, depending on season and location, ranges from about $80 to $150 a night, with most cabins being able to accommodate 2-5 guests.

Whether you're on the east or west coast, or somewhere in the middle, check out these listings and try not to get obsessed:

The Micro Cabin in Roberts Creek, approx. $90/night, airbnb.ca

Made Instagram-famous by the most recent Bachelorette Canada, Jasmine Lorimer, and her fiancée, this tiny cabin is aesthetically perfect on the inside and out. It's incredibly small clocking in at only 125 square-feet but is so well-planned that it even looks spacious inside. I dare you not to put it on your bucket list.

3. Mara, British Columbia

null

Little Green Ranch, approx. $90/night, airbnb.ca

This is listed as a "Little Green Ranch" and that's exactly what it looks like. The cute green house with the green-painted porch is small but efficient! Great for spending some time on a countryside bonding with friends or family, this small ranch house fits six guests in three beds (and has a perfect five-star rating).

4. Yellowknife, Northwest Territories

Country Cabins Pine Lodge, approx. $120/night, airbnb.ca

A rustic, all-wood log cabin has never looked so appealing. It's small, can fit four guests, and has a view of the Aurora Borealis! If you've always wanted to go off-the-grid up north, this is the place for you.

5. Tiny, Ontario

Our Tine A Frame, approx. $150/night, airbnb.ca

A tiny house in the town of Tiny, Ontario, how perfect! The A-frame design is super cool, except for those who are over 6-feet-tall, then you may have to crouch in some spaces. Perfect for a weekend by the beaches (six beaches, to be exact), the house is also equipped with an in-porch hot tub! Be right back, booking it right now.

6. Plantagenet, Ontario

Cabin perched on escarpment band, approx. $135/night, airbnb.ca

7. Nominingue, Quebec

null

Chalet dans les arbres, approx. $155/night, airbnb.ca

Make all your childhood dreams come true by staying in this "chalet dans les arbres." This isn't the kind of treehouse you find in backyards though, it's better. With cool rope bridges and walkways to get you to your cabin, you'll feel your inner 10-year-old coming out. These listers are experienced in unique rental experiences, they also own a hobbit house you can stay in!

8. Rimouski, Quebec

Small ecological cabin on wheels tiny house style, approx. $160/night, airbnb.ca

These brightly-colours tiny-house style cabins are located in the most beautiful field of flowers by the St. Laurent river. Wake up in a calming, all-wood-interior cabin and feel like you're stepping into a fairytale land when you open the door.

9. Belfast, Prince Edward Island

JAnaB Log Cabin, approx. $80/night, airbnb.ca

If this tiny log cabin doesn't make you feel welcome in P.E.I, I don't know what will. The spacious porch gives you a perfect view of the sunset and most of the furniture and decor is locally hand-made. Get your feet wet in the east coast, figuratively and literally, as it's only a five-minute walk from a red sand beach!

10. Bauline East, Newfoundland

null

East Coast Newfoundland cabin, approx. $105/night, airbnb.ca

This cabin offers TV with Netflix and Wifi, but chances are you won't be needing it. Located right beside the wharf, with stunning views of water and greenery, the fresh Newfoundland air will be the only thing on your mind.
