Note: While local parks, shops, and events are reopening throughout the province, Santé Quebec is reminding individuals to monitor their health for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. If you’re not feeling well, they recommend staying home at this time. If you decide to go out, maintain the two-metre physical distancing guidelines and wear a face covering or mask when in public.
Considering everything that’s been going on, packing up a few things and sneaking off for a stay at a treehouse really doesn’t seem like a bad idea these days.
No longer exclusively a fit for a young child in their backyard, treehouses are now being marketed as the perfect couple’s retreat.
As luxury treehouses have been popping up all over the province, they’re rustic, isolated, and the perfect outdoorsy getaway for all you Montreal city-slickers.
