Autumn is in full swing, and as the days grow shorter and temperatures drop, it's time to start planning that cozy winter getaway. Sure, there are bare-bones options, but why not treat yourself to a more extravagant experience? Whether you’re reuniting with family and friends or booking a private romantic getaway, these glam cabins will have you cuddling up in comfort.
Mid-century modern A-frame – Milan, New York
The vibe: stylish stay
Less than two hours north of Manhattan, this 1968 A-frame is nestled in the woods near Rhinebeck, and its magazine-spread-worthy decor reflects the era, with clean lines, bold color choices, and mid-century Danish furnishings juxtaposed with one-of-a-kind items throughout. The mod-eclectic look comes courtesy the cabin’s Brooklyn-based owners, a married fashion-designer duo who collected many of the pieces on display during their travels. But the showstopper is a wall of windows that floods the place with natural light – overlooking nothing but greenery, it makes the city feel worlds away. $354 per night.
Laurel Falls – Asheville, North Carolina
The vibe: lavish space to spread out
Reuniting with family and friends? You’ll need plenty of elbow room, and outside of Asheville, the sprawling multi-cabin Laurel Falls offers just that, with nine bedrooms on nearly 20 acres, sleeping 19 people in total. A National Register of Historic Places–listed property dating to the 1920s, the mountainside compound (elevation: 2,788 feet) maintains many of its original details, but it’s also thoroughly modernized, with multiple hot tubs, full kitchens, and classic country furnishings throughout. Spring for the private chef, who operates the wood-burning pizza oven with aplomb. $1,063 per night.
Kūono at Volcano – Volcano, Hawaii
The vibe: minimalist modern
Minutes from Volcano Village and Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park on the Big Island, the modern Kūono cabin has minimalist decor and contemporary furnishings, with luxe amenities like a 4K TV and Bose bluetooth speakers – not to mention the bank of floor-to-ceiling windows fronting the property. The open-plan interior is truly stunning, but the outdoor living space equally impressive, with a private lanai, a switch-operated fire pit, and a hot tub steps outside the front door. Surrounded by Ohia trees, with little light pollution overhead, it’s the perfect spot to tuck in and unwind. $350 per night.
Sequoia House – Russian River Valley, California
The vibe: low-tech romantic hideaway
For a romantic weekend à deux, there aren’t many settings prettier than a cozy riverside cabin surrounded by ancient redwoods, and this Russian River Valley beauty says amour inside and out. Minutes from town and beach, the extensive property makes a great hideaway, with no TV or cellphone reception to distract from the serious business of relaxation and reconnection. Heat up in the outdoor sauna, then pop a bottle of bubbly, stash it in the creek to keep it cold, and settle in for an unforgettable date night on the water. (And in case you need another excuse to go solo, no kids under 8 are allowed.) $488 per night.
Authentic Western log cabin – Jackson, Wyoming
The vibe: luxe Old West
Whether you’re in Wyoming for winter sports or summer fun, this circa-1940s three-bedroom in the hills of Jackson offers an elegant take on an old-school architectural style, with classic Western elements – log walls, oak floors, wood furnishings throughout – complementing modern amenities like a gourmet kitchen, skylights, and flatscreen TVs for best-of-both-worlds results. A stunning fieldstone hearth anchors the ground floor, the master bath has a walk-in shower, and the place sleeps 10, so there’s enough space for a crowd. $1,116 per night.
Center Hill Cabins – Sparta, Tennessee
The vibe: country chic
Located on 12 secluded acres in eastern Tennessee, Center Hill comprises two pioneer-built cabins and one luxury treehouse, all with lake and valley views. A lovingly restored site with a firepit, an outdoor shower, and a screened-in porch complete with a swing, plus cushy beds kitted out in fine linens and a kitchen fit for a gourmand, the property comes courtesy of Nashville royalty Holly Williams, daughter of Hank Jr. and a musician in her own right. She’s also a local entrepreneur, with a mini-empire of mercantiles and vacation rentals in the region, and these cabins carry her signature country-chic stamp, from the crisp white paint to the copper accents to the coffee-table books and wine glasses she stocks at her general stores. There’s even a Gibson guitar kicking around in case inspiration strikes. $463 per night.
