Amazing Cabin Resorts in the US

Cowboy Village in Jackson, Wyoming

Cowboy Village cabins in Jackson Hole Wyoming

The Cowboy Village was the perfect cabin getaway for a family to stay when visiting Grand Teton National Park. Our family chose to stay in Jackson, Wyoming, a cowboy chic town with cool log cabins to rent, just ten minutes away from the national park.

The Cowboy Village has 82 stand-alone log cabin rentals that contain a kitchen, dining table, refrigerator, bathroom, and picnic table just outside your door. Even though the cabin size is smaller than a typical log cabin, it was just enough.

The Cowboy Village is located just a few blocks away from the downtown area of Jackson which makes it a perfect location within walking distance to restaurants and shops, yet isolated enough that you don’t hear traffic noise. 

I highly recommend staying in this cabin getaway no matter the season. During the winter months, they offer a free shuttle to the ski lifts, and in the summer months, it is the perfect home base for exploring Grand Teton National Park even taking a day trip to Yellowstone, which is only 55 miles away, is a great option for staying in this area!

Beautiful Cabin at Bar N Ranch in West Yellowstone in Montana

If you’re looking for an incredible luxury cabin rental to explore all there is to do and see in Yellowstone National Park we recommend staying at the Bar N Ranch in West Yellowstone. Located just outside the park this is the perfect place to explore the beauty of Yellowstone as well as kick off a Wyoming or Montana road trip.

This beautiful property is an incredible cabin getaway with different cabins for rent that accommodate as little as two guests to a dozen guests. There are also rooms in the main lodge and camping yurts on the property as an option.

Evergreen Lodge at Yosemite, California

Evergreen Lodge near Yosemite

While looking for locations for my “Eat, Pray, Love” trip, I decided Yosemite National Park would be the “Pray” destination. With so many great places to stay in and around the park, it was hard narrowing down my choices. However, once I found Evergreen Lodge, I knew it would be the perfect cabin getaway I was looking for.

Evergreen Green Lodge is located right on the border of Yosemite National Park. Within the forest of Yosemite, you will find this scenic cabin resort with log cabins to rent of various sizes, a delicious restaurant, grocery store, lounge, and a pool.

The cabins are all equipped with comfortable beds and linens, tables, chairs, and a bathroom. I had always had an interest in glamping vs camping and Evergreen Lodge fulfilled this bucket list item and incredible mountain cabin getaway experience.

While at Evergreen Lodge you can take tours of Yosemite National Park. There are tours available with experienced and responsible guides. As a solo traveler, I appreciated this option since I didn’t feel comfortable exploring the park on my own. I did go on walks on the many trails around the resort and enjoyed sunsets and smores from the patio. It was a wonderful experience.

Lazy Z Resort in Twain Harte, California

Lazy Z Resort Cabin getaway in Twain Harte California

Lazy Z Resort is a mountain cabin getaway located just outside the Gold Rush town of Twain Harte in California’s Gold Country. A family owned resort, it is nestled in the beautiful and peaceful Sierra Nevada mountains. Surrounded by nature, it’s the ideal spot to get away from everything yet it’s not too far from some of the best attractions that Tuolumne County has to offer.

Lazy Z Resort has two types of accommodation – cabins and cottages. Cabins vary from one room studios that accommodate two people to multi-room family cabins that sleep up to 8 people. The cottages are super cute and either sleep two or four people.

Both the cabins and cottages are self-contained and equipped with either a full kitchen or a kitchenette depending on their size. 

I stayed in the Sugar Pine cabin, which accommodated 6 people, with 4 other friends, and I loved returning to a secluded and homely feel after exploring the area. I also loved how they made their pool look like a natural rock pool in the middle of the forest. I would definitely recommend it as a base to both chill and enjoy the surrounding nature and to explore California’s Gold Country and the High Sierra.

Big Meadows Lodge at Shenandoah National Park in Virginia

Big Meadows Cabin at Shenendoah National Park

Exploring the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia, and seeing the beauty of its mountain in Shenandoah National Park, is a breath of fresh air. Skyline Drive is a winding road that runs through the park, which will take you to one of their popular romantic cabin getaways, Big Meadows Lodge.

There are 97 rooms in the main lodge but are also five stand-alone log cabins to rent nearby. Each of the cabins is split into two rooms. The 10 total rooms each have their own private entrance. All of them are equipped with air conditioning and wood-burning fireplaces (wood is available for purchase) and they are open from the end of April to the beginning of November.

These “rustic” cabins were newly renovated and are so close to the main lodge you can easily walk there to enjoy meals at their delicious (also rustic) dining room, Spottswood. (I really was quite impressed with their food – be sure to try their peanut soup and blackberry ice cream pie dessert). The view from the terrace is phenomenal!

While the cabins don’t overlook the mountains you’re only ever steps away from a fantastic view, like at the main lodge. And without reliable wifi, TV or good cell service you’ll want to do what you’re there for anyway: enjoy the nature that surrounds you.

Rooms start at $125 and vary by booking dates. If you’re looking for things to do around Shenandoah National Park be sure to stop investigate things to do in Luray, Virginia, a cute town just 13 miles away from one of the park entrances with restaurants, park provisions and entertainment.

Treehouse Cabins in The Mohicans, Ohio

Treehouse cabins in the Mohicans in Ohio

One of the most unique cabin getaways and accommodations I’ve ever visited are the treehouse cabins in Ohio at The Mohicans. While you won’t find many nearby attractions, that’s all part of the appeal. It’s in the middle of the forest where it’s doubtful that you’ll even have cell phone signal. The Mohicans makes for the perfect romantic cabin getaway and for it to be possible to truly disconnect from modern technology in order to simply enjoy nature and the company of your travel partner.

Now, this isn’t your average treehouse. The Mohicans are one of a kind, luxury treehouses that are essentially works of art. These treehouse cabins are constructed by Pete Nelson of the Animal Planet show, Treehouse Masters. We stayed in the newest treehouse, El Castillo, which translates to “the castle”. Indeed, it was a castle of a treehouse. 

After walking up a flight of stairs, you’ll walk across a mini suspension bridge to reach the treehouse. El Castillo is a two level treehouse cabin with a full kitchen and living space in the downstairs, and a luxurious bedroom upstairs. There are two balconies for beautiful woodland views, which was my favorite space for enjoying my morning cup of coffee. There’s even a swing hanging from the base of the treehouse itself for added fun.

Definitely check out the treehouse cabins at The Mohicans for an extra special, magical and romantic experience in one of the most unique romantic cabin getaways in the world.

Cottages at Spring House Farm in Marion, North Carolina

Cottages at Spring House Farm in Marion, North Carolina

Located less than 15 miles north of downtown Asheville, the 510,000-acre Pisgah National Forest was one of the first national forests established in the eastern United States. One of many popular ecotourism attractions in the North Carolina portion of the Blue Ridge mountains, Pisgah was the site of the Biltmore Forestry School (the first school of forestry in North America), which was founded on George W. Vanderbilt’s Biltmore Estate in 1898 and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Cottages at Spring House Farm make the most of this pristine pastoral paradise, offering gorgeous log cabins for rent right on the forest’s border. The interiors are spacious, modern and feel totally private, with amenities including full kitchens, wood fireplaces, hot tubs on the porch, and more. Nearby attractions include several long-distance hiking trails (including the Appalachian Trail), waterfalls, the Linville Gorge, and wildlife such as bears, deer, and birds.

Cabins at Fontainebleau State Park in Louisiana

Fontainebleau State Park cabin

Imagine you are in the Maldives while sipping Bayou Rum on your Cajun cabin getaway porch. Fontainebleau State Park is Louisiana’s most visited state park and its dozen deluxe overwater cabins perched over Lake Pontchartrain offer a convenient and unique home base while exploring southeastern Louisiana.

The hustle and bustle of New Orleans is only a 30-minute drive away; so frolic in the French Quarter and then retreat to your secluded and comfortable Bayou bungalow. When you decide to focus on the Louisiana Northshore—you would be crazy not to—visit USA’s strangest attraction (believe me!), the Abita Mystery House. Then attempt to unravel your thoughts over a pint or several at nearby Abita Brewing Company. Your luck is remarkable if you can catch a show at Dew Drop Jazz Hall.

Venture into Covington to sample cheeses at Acquistapace’s, try an array of natural ice cream flavors at Hoodoo, and savor incredible meals at Oxlot 9, LOLA Restaurant, and Del Porto.

Two of my favorite outdoor activities in St Tammany Parish are the Insta-Gator Ranch show—also check out the only white gator in the world—and a #FeedYourSoul experience with Bayou Adventure—where, no lie, a massive wild gator bumped my kayak.

Mount Princeton Hot Springs Cabins in Buena Vista, Colorado

Mount Princeton Cabins

One of the best hot springs and cabin resorts I’ve been to is Mount Princeton Hot Springs near Buena Vista, Colorado. The Mount Princeton Hot Springs cabins are the perfect weekend and cabin getaway, whether you’re celebrating a girls weekend or a romantic escape.

Set in the middle of the Sawatch Range of the Rocky Mountains, the surrounding area offers a ton of recreational opportunities, including hiking, skiing, off-roading or fishing. There’s even an old ghost town you can explore, just up the road in St. Elmo. 

You may not want to leave the resort, though, as there are so many things to do right on the property. The log cabins for rent at the hot springs resort is the best way to spend your time, as you can relax in front of the living room fireplace, cook up a tasty meal, or enjoy an adult beverage from your front porch. All within a few minutes’ walk of the hot springs pools! Cell service can be spotty out here, so just plan on relaxing and enjoying some time off the grid.

Cabins on Moosehead Lake in Maine

Loon Lodge - Stuffed Suitcase

Moosehead Lake, Maine is the perfect cabin getaway for cabin lovers. On my recent trip, I experienced two cabins that offer unique experiences. The first cabin is the Loon Lodge with Moosehead Hills Cabins. This lovely log cabin rental sits on the shores of Lower Wilson Pond, about 15 minutes away from Greenville and Moosehead Lake. The cabin is the quintessential cozy cabin with beautiful wood views, comfy couches, and a fireplace for chilling Maine nights. It’s perfect for families, with two master bedrooms, and another room with four bunk beds. You can kayak on Lower Wilson Pond or go on a moose safari around the region.

If you’re looking for a rustic, hiking vacation, check out the Appalachian Mountain Club’s log cabins for rent that are located in the 100-mile wilderness section of the Appalachian Trail. I stayed at the Gorman Chairback Lodge in a single room cabin getaway perfect for the solo traveler or as a romantic mountain cabin getaway. The AMC Lodges provide you three meals a day and bathroom facilities if you’re staying in a cabin without one. Both of these cozy cabins offer you a relaxing, unplugged vacation with plenty of hiking, watersports, and wildlife viewing.
