Woods You Rather

The Five Best Cold-Weather Cabins

Sooner than you think, it’ll be January. And we’re not sure if you remember this from last year, but January can be cold. Soul-crushingly cold. But, hey, that’s why cozy cabins in the woods were invented. And why we’ve rounded up your most promising options below...

A Cabin That Doubles as a Day Spa
POOL’S GOLD

A Cabin That Doubles as a Day Spa

You Want: Somewhere that you can achieve total relaxation.
You’ll Get: Everything you ever wanted in a cabin. So, a steam room, an indoor-to-outdoor heated pool and a gas-fired pizza oven. Okay, it’s not exactly roughing it...

A Perfectly Inaccessible Hideaway
REMOTE CONTROL

A Perfectly Inaccessible Hideaway

You Want: Some privacy. And a reason to break out your passport.
You’ll Get: A two-story lake house outside Vancouver that’s accessible only by boat. Sure, you’ll have the requisite wraparound water views and fire pits—but you’ll also have a heated outdoor safari tent. In case you want to safari. In Canada.

You, a Date and Yosemite
PARK PLACE

You, a Date and Yosemite

You Want: Something way more interesting than a bed-and-breakfast.
You’ll Get: An A-frame cabin in the woods of Yosemite with a distinct Ray Eames touch. There’s a bedroom upstairs, a kitchen downstairs and a bunch of bears all around. So maybe stick to the bedroom and kitchen.

Careful, This Cabin Is Fragile
BEST IN GLASS

Careful, This Cabin Is Fragile

You Want: Something with a view.
You’ll Get: A lakefront cabin that’s made of nothing but glass and a few steel beams. It’s almost like you’re outdoors... except for the heated floors, skylit showers, working electricity, refrigerator, etc.

And in Case You Feel Like Skiing...
TRAPPERS KEEPER

And in Case You Feel Like Skiing...

You Want: To actually do some skiing. And maybe some light-to-moderate not-skiing.
You’ll Get: A ski-in, ski-out Rocky Mountain chalet 9,500 feet above sea level. The place has room for 10. Or a couple more if you get rid of the in-house private chef and pool table. So, 10 it is.
