On Lake Ontario, Nordic design and tranquil nature meet luxurious amenities at Wander. The Prince Edward County resort is home to just 10 cabins and was designed, yes, with the area’s epic scenery in mind, but its details are really what make this getaway a design-lover’s dream. European-style kitchens, heated floors, rattan swings, and nary a television make this cabin your temporary home sweet home. “Wander is a place where you experience time standing still for a moment. A return to the feeling of being at summer camp, when a week felt like a lifetime,” says Shannon Hunter, Wander’s owner and interior designer. Light-filled spaces offer up the comforting warmth—quite literally with that woodstove and the heated floors—of a Canadian cabin and a serene palette of neutrals. Inside, walls of windows offer incredible views to the lake, while outside you can enjoy life on the water in a number of ways: under cantilever umbrellas by the heated pool, on lakefront beach beds, or hammocked in the catamaran net of the 50-foot dock. In warmer weather take a dip in the lake, explore via paddleboard, kayak, or canoe, or book one of the free adult bikes to explore more of the region. Each of the 10 cabins can sleep up to five people.

European-style kitchens are stocked with all of the essentials and feature premium Miele appliances, including dishwasher, and stone countertops. In the dining room, a West Elm table is outfitted with Suite 22 chairs. Light by Serena and Lily. Photo by Patrick Biller
