One trend we can't see oversaturating the market anytime soon: cabin villages.
Sure, some tent purists out there will always shout "fake camping" at revamped Airstreams or tiny homes. But who cares? It's tough to beat a restored retreat with a trail and a view, and that's exactly what's on the menu at Bodega Cove, a collection of 1960's-era cabins on Galiano Island, a wooded islet just two hours outside of downtown Vancouver.

Located in the Strait of Georgia, a US-Canada waterway border, Galiano is a 17-mile island blessed with a bevy of British Columbia parks, worn-shell beaches and migrating birds. Bodega Cove sits on the island's western banks and touts a collection of five Pacific redcedar cabins. The dwellings have seen their share of seasons, but are recently gutted, gleaming and eager to flex.
While the exterior maintains some last-century lines (your dad could've come up here with his friends and a couple coolers), the interior looks like someone locked the Danes and Japanese in a room and said "Make it happen." Unobtrusive furniture, cedar slats, stainless steel kitchenette, deep-soaking tubs ... you've got everything you need to live comfortably and inspired between adventures in the woods or down by the surf. Keep your tents, purists.
