There is so much to love about this off-grid cabin building located at Columbia-Shuswap, British Columbia, Canada. The peaceful cabin is nestled in the forest, in the heart of the rocky mountains. The cabin is surrounded by wetland and solitude, just a short drive from Glacier National Park, Kinbasket Lake, Quartz Creek, and the towns of Golden, and Revelstoke. The area is a haven for hikers and bikers alike, or simply anyone who is looking for a beautiful escape. The wood cabin is 100 percent off-grid, with a full kitchen, a beautiful timber-framed shower house, and an outhouse.
Access to the cabin is by foot, bike, or quad (the vacationing host offers free pick-ups/drop-offs). This is truly a unique vacation setting and experience. In the summer months, you can explore the creek trail to try your hand at gold panning, the enchanted forest trail to discover where our beautiful mountain water comes from, or wander down to Beaver Point a short distance from the wood cabin to watch for wildlife. The cabin has almost 2 miles of trail so you can truly immerse yourself in the wilderness. Trails are not maintained in the wintertime, so you'll want to bring along your skis or snowshoes.
The cabin kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need to cook or bake, including an array of spices, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sugar, and flour. Local coffee and tea are provided, and there is even a Vitamix for those who start the day with a smoothie. This off-grid cabin is a great way to get away from the city and enjoy some fresh air and wide-open views, who knows it might even inspire you to build an off-grid cabin of your own. One way to power your off-grid cabin building is with solar power. The initial cost of installing solar power in your off-grid cabin may take several years to pay itself, but in the long run, you'll save money, and you won't have to rely on the power company to light and power your cabin.
Living with solar energy also opens up the locations where you can build your off-grid cabin. Solar power offers flexible living that might include a location with beautiful views of nature and more off the beaten track. Imagine living on a property where your neighbors are further away and a place where you can benefit from using renewable energy. Producing your solar power will give you the freedom to live just about wherever you choose. Connecting your remote cabin to the electrical grid can be a big undertaking, as you have to go through quite a bit of regulatory hoops and the costs of installing a service pole to your off-grid can be expensive. There is flexibility in setting up solar renewable energy in your off-grid cabin that helps to provide a simpler alternative solution. Solar power removes your grid dependence entirely. If you don’t need to stay connected to a power grid, you can avoid the long and costly process of getting your off-grid cabin connected to the main grid.
