Renting a cabin for your vacation instead of a hotel makes for a unique vacation for you and your family. Cabins are often more secluded, allowing you to separate yourself from the crowd in order to relax and unwind. Cabins can also be more spacious than a hotel room, allowing you to enjoy your accommodations, instead of just using them as a place to sleep. Here are some of the best places to rent a cabin in the United States.

The Rocky Mountains, Colorado

For skiers and snow-lovers alike, very few things can beat your own cabin vacation in the Rocky Mountains. With breathtaking views close to many ski resorts, these cabins are secluded and unique, giving you a much different experience than staying in a resort hotel.

Lake Michigan

Whether you choose to stay in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana or Michigan, you are sure to have a beautiful sight outside your Lake Michigan cabin. On a perfectly clear day in Michigan and Chicago, you can actually see the skyline across the lake if you are in southern Michigan. From Chicago and Wisconsin, you get magnificent views of the sun rising up over the lake.

Pennsylvania Dutch County

If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is your ideal destination. A cabin vacation in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch County puts you in the center of many unique experiences and sights. Covered bridges grace the area as well as Amish markets and farms. If you are looking for a place to escape, this is the cabin destination for you.

Lake Tahoe, California

No matter what season you are traveling, the Lake Tahoe area always has something to offer. With skiing in the winter and water activities in the summer, you are always able to find exciting things to do. These cabins offer more seclusion than typical hotels, but still put you close enough to many great activities.

Hocking Hills, Ohio

The Hocking Hills is known for its fabulous trails leading to the dramatic waterfalls in the state park. Plus, there are lots of land, water, and even air activities (try zip lining!) around that one weekend is not enough to experience everything! Check out the tree cabins at the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls and you’ll be surrounded by the peace and quiet of the forest — while relaxing in a hot tub. And if you get tired from the day’s pursuits, visit the Inn’s day spa to give your muscles a much needed TLC.

Choosing the location of your next cabin vacation will be the most challenging part of your trip. Once you arrive, you will experience relaxation and a separation from the stress in your life back at home. The beauty of being secluded just a few miles from town gives you the opportunity to have the best of both worlds; the hustle of downtown when you want it, and the separation when you don’t. After your vacation, if you can’t stand the thought of returning to your urban home, many companies specializing in building log homes, giving you tips and tricks on how to build your own log home and live it in all year long.
