Chic Cabins in California and Beyond
Everyone has cabin fever nowadays and no wonder: the cabin might be the most straightforward structure in modern history. Basic and functional, mostly just comprised of 4 walls and a roof, the cabin is a symbol of simpler times in a complicated world. Its appeal is universal. The cabin really is the all American retreat as exemplified above in a hut on Finkle Farm in West Virginia.
If you, like us, have cabin fever, here is selection of cabins for rent from Boutique-Homes.com collection and read on for more amazing cabins and shelters.
Set on stilts and accessible by ladder, the one room "shack" sits on a meadow on the edge of a forest. It's semi-open on all sides and has no electricity, so it's the perfect place for a summer kick back.
Above you see the Stiles Cabin in New York State. Though originally built as a temporary shelter while a larger cabin was being constructed, the Stiles' decided that smaller was better. So cool!
Above is a cabin from Sweden that we think is super cool.
In the high country is the classic A-Frame cabin with a twist. It's solar powered and comes with Internet if you just must get some work done while you're on your mountain retreat. But when evening comes, put away the computer and head outdoors to sit around the firepit and tell ghost stories (or just look at the beautiful sky.) Check out the A-Frame and book your stay here.
In the same meadow as the A-Frame, right next to a small river, is the original log cabin that's been restored for modern travelers. No need to bring your bicycle; it comes with your booking! Get back in touch with nature and get some fresh air while exploring trails, discovering secret spots, and hidden swimming holes. Book your stay.
