What $650,000 buys you across Canada this week, including a penthouse in Old Montreal

Property Snoop: From a collection of log cabins on a Saskatchewan lakefront to a 100-year-old home in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

1. Old-fashioned lakefront log cabins in Saskatchewan’s boreal forest 


This log cabin compound is what cottagers’ dreams are made of.


Address: Cabins on Delaronde Lake
Were: Big River, Saskatchewan
Price: $650,000
Specs: 5 beds, 2 baths

Forget trying to figure out how to afford that family compound in Muskoka — go west, people! This collection of structures includes a 2,300-square-foot log cabin with renos (sunken living room, deck) and a four-room cabin fronting 60 metres of Delaronde Lake. Its current owners arrive by air, but driving in also gets you here too.

2. Century-old home in Ontario’s wine country



This historical gem sits on a generous lot in Niagara-on-the-Lake.


Address: 506 Mississauga Street
Where: Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario
Price: $669,000
Specs: 3 bed, 2 bath

This fairytale cottage sits on 55’ x 206’ of property in pretty Niagara-on-the-Lake. Keep it as a pint-sized AirBnB or redevelop it to suit your own modern-day dream.

3. Europe-worthy penthouse in Old Montreal.

Beautiful views and amazing renovations make this luxurious penthouse in Old Montreal a total jewel.


Address: #402, 64 Rue St-Paul Ouest
Where: Ville-Marie (Montreal), Quebec
Price: $650,000
Specs: 2 bed, 2 bath

Even the most continental among us cannot feel the love for laptop-sized washing machines or doll-sized fridges. This penthouse in Old Montreal is the closest thing to living in Europe this side of the Pond: views of the city and river with a private terrace, swish new kitchen (stainless steel appliances, quartz counter tops), and a locker on the same floor as your suite. No more basement bike locker!
