Cabin-Spotting: 20 Perfect Weekend Retreats

Cabins that take us away from the everyday.

Like a tannenbaum, a good cabin is perennial. ‘Tis always the season for the rustic getaway house, a place to deck the halls with home-made brew and extended relations. Some of the cabins featured here are too tiny for second cousins; others foreign and thus, impractical for a long weekend. But all are perfect and lust-worthy, especially for the cabin-less who really just want the courtesy of an invite.

Failing that, there’s always Cabin Porn.
