Autumn in an A-Frame?

The popularity of A-frame cabins soared from the mid-1950s through the 1970s as Americans with disposable income looked for inexpensive ways to build a vacation home. While they might not be as popular as they once were, A-frames still have their dedicated enthusiasts, many of whom have renovated vintage structures and offered them for rental on Vrbo and Airbnb. We scoured these sites for homes that look like they'd make a comfy, cozy getaway spot for autumn adventures. Do have more A-frame advice? Tell us in the comments.
