Canadian athletes yearning for glory at the Rio Olympics need all the nutrition, training and rest they can get.

But they also require support from their families and loved ones.

Enter Canada House, a haven for Canadian athletes and the people cheering them on.

A home away from home, the facility provides friends and families of contestants all the amenities they need. It's also meant to serve as a place for athletes to celebrate medal wins.

But the most interesting part about Canada House has to be that it is UNBEARABLY CANADIAN.

The place is infested with red and white Muskoka chairs.

The pavilion is meant to be an "oasis of Canadiana," according to Team Canada's official website.

And apparently Canadiana = beer

And hammocks (with more cottage chairs)

And picnic tables?
