Beautiful Cabins in Every State


Sure, you can stay in a hotel while traveling -- there might even be free Wi-Fi and a continental breakfast. But to unplug from the digital grind, reconnect with family, a partner, friends, kids, yourself, or the natural world, there is no substitute for a cozy, old-world cabin. No matter where you are in the country, there's a cabin ranging from bare-bones shelter to luxurious lodges, and often for less than the price of a room in a motel. (And don't panic: Many of these rustic retreats also come with high-speed Internet.)

Cody Cabin on Smith Lake is close to Birmingham, but it feels a million miles away. The natural smell of knotty pine wafts throughout the Adirondack-style log cabin, which comes with a real wood fireplace and lake views. One reviewer called it the "perfect getaway."

Talkeetna, Alaska

Billed on Airbnb as an "awesome cabin in the best city in Alaska," this property got five stars out of five in every review category. An oil burner provides primary heat, and a wood-burning stove can add extra warmth -- it gets cold in Alaska. It's a perfect place to spot a moose or catch the Northern Lights.

Strawberry, Arizona

New as of 2009, this 2,000-square-foot mega-cabin is perched atop a massive cliff in the Arizona wilderness. It comes fully stocked and equipped with Wi-Fi and TV, but the real draw is the 800 square feet of deck space. The boundless views of Strawberry Mountain aren't bad, either.

Lake Dardanelle, Arkansas

This cabin just off the Arkansas River earns near-perfect reviews from visitors. Four people can sleep in this cozy hideaway, which is so secluded that the nearest paved road is three miles off. Bring the dog -- the place is equipped with a 20-foot by 20-foot pen so animals can join in the fun.

Trinidad, California

Located high atop California's scenic Trinidad Bluffs is a cabin with an ocean view that could challenge any in the state, despite California being known for postcard views of the Pacific.

Nestled in the foothills of the majestic Rocky Mountains, Dancing Bears Cabin is the quintessential Colorado getaway. The simple natural wood exterior and folksy touches mask a bit of luxury -- there are three bedrooms, two bathrooms, granite countertops, and oak cabinetry.

Granby, Connecticut

A stay at the "lovely" and "quaint" Windy Top Cabin means traveling back in time. The 1930s cottage, built of stone by a businessman for the servants who vacationed with him, has an English country house feel aided by the lack of TV (though there's Wi-Fi) and a library of old books and magazines. Views around the cabin are stunning.

Rockland, Delaware

This stone cottage is fully renovated but appears frozen in a simpler time on a small family farm in Rockland. This hideaway sleeps up to eight, and feels isolated and remote though it is actually less than a half-hour from the Philadelphia airport.

Wellborn, Florida

Located 40 feet from Bethea Lake, this log cabin is peaceful, relaxing -- and crowded. You won't see many people, but deer, wild turkeys, raccoons, ducks, waterfowl are all regular visitors to the lake. (Alligators stop by too.) "Nature at its best," raved one reviewer.

Blue Ridge, Georgia

Black Bear Cabin is in the heart of the Aska Adventure Area. Uneven elevation creates a beautiful sense of depth, with half the cabin secured to land and the other half perched on stilts. Nestled in the woods, the cabin boasts plenty of ways to make memories: There are treetop views, a pool table, hot tub, and outdoor fire pit.

Hauula, Hawaii

You might think beachfront property in Hawaii is unaffordable, but this cozy cottage is just $135 a night, year-round. One visitor recalled snorkeling with sea turtles, fish, and other marine life in the clear, blue water.

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

For a cabin feel without having to rough it, Lakeview Heights has all the amenities of the average modern home. There's nothing average about the surroundings, though. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow stunning views of the Coeur d'Alene resort, including a view of the golf course's famous floating green.

Carbondale, Illinois

Words such as "quaint" and "cozy" might come to mind when you think of cabins, but that's underselling this three-floor, 2,700-square-foot cabin with four bedrooms (and a game room with a pool table and vintage pinball machines). The real kicker is the private pond and beach out back.

Freetown, Indiana

In Hoosier National Forest you'll find the ultimate in peaceful seclusion -- as well as one of the choicest cabins in Indiana.

Ossian, Iowa

This massive, 2,300-square-foot log cabin is a blend of rustic and modern.

Hoxie, Kansas

Tranquil, peaceful, and spacious, Cressler Creek Log Cabin is nearly a mile and a half from the nearest highway.

Mackville, Kentucky

Luxury and space are the name of the game in this extraordinary 7,775-square-foot log lodge. The great room alone has two stone fireplaces. The second floor boasts a balcony and gaming area, and the central features outside are a 5-acre pond, portico, and a log porch swing.

The Cajun Cabin is technically a tiny house, but it oozes classic cabin ambience, and the rugged, swampy bayou wilderness surrounding it locks in the atmosphere. "This tiny cabin had all the extras you didn't know you wanted or needed, plus more," a reviewer said.

Oquossoc, Maine

A flatscreen TV and premium satellite package are part of the deal with this four-bedroom cabin -- but they're inside a bona fide, old-world Maine log home with a private dock, rowboat and canoe, and lakeside dining.

Boonsboro, Maryland

Although it's a broad, sturdy, imposing structure, Mountain Myst is lost easily among the backdrop of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. Massive windows drench the cavernous rooms inside with natural sunlight, and a stone fireplace sets the mood.

Egremont, Massachusetts

This stunning cabin on 10 private acres boasts too many high-end amenities to name. Among the finest is a massive billiards room with an antique pool table, a bar, poker and blackjack tables, and foosball. There's also a movie theater with 12 leather lounge recliners.

Coloma, Michigan

Big but cozy, this cabin is fun throughout thanks to interesting decor and a curious assortment of tchotchkes -- such as the impressive collection of cowboy boots serving as scattered decorations -- and is surrounded by 15 private acres, near a 60-acre lake.

South Haven, Minnesota

Rustic, knotholed wood wraps the interior of this warm and homey but up-to-date beauty. A six-person saltwater hot tub is the crown jewel amenity, but don't look past the outdoor fireplace, comfy furniture, massive windows, and endless views of the surrounding natural beauty outside.

Plains, Montana

The Riverfront Cottage is a 1,200-square-foot oasis on the banks of the Clark Fork River. A fire pit, upper balcony, and a welcoming patio are just part of the reason visitors keep booking extra nights. The beach and boat ramp are just a quarter-mile away.

Salem, Nebraska

This creekside cabin is so secluded that a four-wheel drive vehicle is needed just to reach the place. Wood heat is complemented by central air. The nearby 8-foot-deep creek is packed with fish, and the surrounding land provides ample game for hunters, who can stalk the land for deer and turkey in season.

South Lake Tahoe, Nevada

The hand-crafted copper front door of this knotty pine cabin, built in the traditional Tahoe style, signals there will be special touches in this comfortable cabin, including its hot tub and massive leather couches. A well-stocked galley-style kitchen and breakfast bar complement the cabin's creature comforts, and nap-inducing Adirondack chairs will keep visitors comfortable on the front porch.

Bethlehem, New Hampshire

Although it's listed as an "apartment," this oasis in the woods is a cabin through and through. The Ammonoosuc River is close by, as is Forest Lake State Park. Modern trappings such as a washer and dryer give the comfort of home, but the fireplace and rugged interior let you know you're in the wilderness.

Cape May Courthouse, New Jersey

In the Garden State beach town of Cape May Courthouse lies a tiny Amish-built cabin that looks like a pinhead nestled among a full 32 acres of lakeside.

Chimayo, New Mexico

The cabin on Paradise Pond is situated among eight acres of pristine New Mexico wilderness. The water rights agreements that keep the pond directly in front of this rental flowing date to the 17th century -- before America was a country. Fortress-style adobe walls and Southwestern decor make for an instant New Mexico classic.

Prattsburgh, New York

This small, rustic cabin is perched in the mountains, surrounded by wildlife and next to a small farm. You'll be close enough town to drive in, but remote enough to get the true deep woods experience. Enjoy the fireplace and the backyard lake, but don't expect your phone to get much reception.

Andrews, North Carolina

This creek-front cabin is more than a football field's length from the closest neighbor, and the hot tub and private deck are the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the sound of the rushing mountain creek. Bathed in sunlight, the interior's cathedral ceilings make for a vast, open, and warm space -- which can be warmed with the stone fireplace.

Want to live for a night like the pioneers who pulled up stakes and headed west to populate the frontier? That's exactly what you'll get at Campfire Cabin, which is so isolated on the North Dakota prairie that you'll expect a wagon train to trundle by at any moment.

Blue Rock, Ohio

You'll enjoy fishing in the fully stocked pond as much as you will lounging in the hammock at this secluded cabin packed with amenities. It's hidden deep in the woods, but a wood-burning fireplace, radiant floor heating, satellite TV, and a full kitchen will make you feel right at home.

Broken Bow, Oklahoma

The cabin known as the Birdhouse is so luxurious and refined that it's surprising the amenities -- among the biggest boutique hotel-style draws are the fire pit and four-person hot tub -- don't detract much from the raw, natural ambiance of a traditional cabin.

Little surprise Green Flash Cabin was featured in Sunset Magazine: The one-bedroom retreat, new as of 2011, is the Great Northwest at its finest. Every room in the structure offers breathtaking views of the Oregon coast.

Sevierville, Tennessee

Known as Hapey Place, this cabin is fairly small -- just 820 square feet. But its mountain views are giant. Watching the sun rise from the porch rockers or soaking in the hot tub at night might make visitors forget they're minutes away from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.

Utopia, Texas

It's secluded, private, and tiny, and the unfinished porch timbers at Four Sisters Ranch Cabin signal that you've wandered off the beaten path, where the night sky is beautiful and the passers-by might include deer, turkey, hummingbirds, fireflies, and wild hogs

Escalante, Utah

The Old Bailey Place was built circa 1890, but renovated in 2017 without losing this classic pioneer cabin's charm. The plumbing, wiring, and foundation are all new, but the furniture is handmade and the mountain views are as magnificent as they would have been for the earliest settlers.

Windham, Vermont

Upscale seclusion is the name of the game in this sleek, linear, modern incarnation of a cabin. It's bursting with modern amenities, stylish, and crisply lit by ubiquitous windows, but the in-bedroom stove and massive living room fireplace lend the ambience of a more traditional log home.

Marion, Virginia

What appear to be a glass pyramid is a magnificent cabin with individually opening and closing windows lining its front. The interior is sleek and modern, but it works hard to retain a log cabin ambience; the giant fireplace helps. All those windows help see the vibrant trees and passing deer.

Big Lake, Washington

The owner recommends guests bring fishing poles to this hideaway on a private pond. Stunning in all seasons, the clear sky above reveals a dense patchwork of stars; the six acres include a fire pit and horseshoes; and visits from deer and other wildlife are not uncommon.

The panoramic mountain views, hiking, and running stream on five acres vies for attention with the cabin itself, which is bright and open, with criss-crossing rafters that lend the space symmetry and beauty.

It might not qualify as a cabin technically, but you'd be hard pressed to find a more traditionally Western experience. The cozy Sheepherders Wagon is a genuine slice of how real ranchers used to live. The good news is, you get a few modern perks -- a good mattress, bathroom, shower, and laundry access, and other trappings of post-pioneer society.
