Whether you’re looking for a relaxing getaway, a fun-filled family weekend, or an adventure-packed trip with friends, renting a cabin can be a great way to make it happen. Renting a cabin can be an excellent way to get away with loved ones – the warm, homey atmosphere and access to nature can’t be beaten, and you’ll appreciate the chance to relax and unwind together at the end of the day instead of sending everyone off to separate hotel rooms.
Considering a cabin but aren’t sure where to look? These are some of the most incredible places in the country to rent a cabin:
Lake Tahoe, California or Nevada.
Situated on the border of California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America, making it a breathtaking destination to spend a few days experiencing the great outdoors. During the warmer months, it’s the perfect destination for anyone who loves to hike or boat, and when winter moves into the area, it brings some of the best ski conditions in the nation – so you really can’t go wrong! With hundreds of privately-owned cabins tucked away in the trees and mountains that surround the shores, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from through VRBO or Airbnb.
Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
For a mountain escape more easily accessible from the east coast, Pigeon Forge is a great option. Pigeon Forge is home to lots of great restaurants and local attractions, including the Dollywood theme park, making the perfect cabin rental destination if you’re traveling with kids. You’ll find plenty of rentals available in the nearby Smoky Mountains near town with easy access to incredible waterfall hikes, scenic drives, and other outdoor adventures.
Ithaca, New York.
Ithaca is the perfect spot to rent a cabin if your group is on a mission to experience the great outdoors. Located in the Finger Lakes region of New York, you’ll find plenty of water for boating, fishing, swimming, and other activities. Those who prefer to stay on dry land will have fun hiking and exploring the area by horseback. For a real treat, book your stay in the area in October for a chance to experience the area’s incredible fall foliage.
Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.
Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) is the perfect playground for anyone who loves the outdoors. Spend a day hiking some of the most stunning mountains in the nation, then treat yourself to a warm meal and a night filled with laughter as you play games and share stories with good company. If you’re looking to stay as close as possible to the park, you’ll find quite a few cabin rentals near the towns of Estes Park and Grand Lake, which mark the east and west entrances (respectively) to the area.
While there are plenty of places to choose from if you’re looking to rent a cabin, you’ll be hard-pressed to beat these top destinations. Have you ever rented a cabin before? If so, where did you stay and how did it go? Leave a comment and let me know!
