This is kind of interesting: Up by Algonquin Park (Ontario, Canada’s oldest provincial park, quite historical), there’s a new business, Camp Bongopix, that rents out cabins, and their theme is to recreate the 1980s cottage experience. They have rooms with N64 consoles and VHS equipment, and things look decorated in a pretty convincing 80s style.
It’s a pretty novel idea (that I know of), and I could imagine it taking off and doing quite well (maybe it already has). It seems like something that would really hit the spot with a lot of Toronto people I can think of. There’s also a hostel lodge thing that’s part of it, looks like a lot of fun for the right crowd.
Their FAQ says they only book through Airbnb, which is different. I’d like to keep my eye on this thing for a couple of years and see how it does, I’m curious.
