Found: The Ultimate Cabin Experiences
September 23, 2016
It’s fall, y’all. That can mean several things, but notably a massive uptick in group emails with words like “cabin,” “upstate,” “bed and breakfast,” “fireplace,” and “cozy” in the subject lines.
Luckily, owners and rental-runners are getting hip to the fact that Instagram’s hyper-searchability allows it to function like a travel concierge. Instead of trawling vacation sites, try this instead: Look up these feeds and book a trip.
Send us a postcard.

Come for the: options—this feed is basically the best of Airbnb, collected handily by a cabin lover in New Hampshire. She hashtags, geotags, and @mentions generously, so you’ll always know where to find more info.
Stay for the: daydreams.
If it had a tag line: impossible to choose.
Location: New Hampshire
Come for the: cactus—this is full desert cabin–style.
Stay for the: outdoor seating options. Daybeds and chaises, hammocks and porch swings, all ready for lounging under café lights strung everywhere.
If it had a tag line: impossible to leave.
Location: Joshua Tree, CA
Come for the: completely Pinterest-worthy loft-style space and comfortable beds (speaking from experience).
Stay for the: fact that it’s perfect for a solo trip or for up to six, and that the entire side wall opens barn-door style onto a fire pit.
If it had a tag line: no tiny detail or aspect of hospitality overlooked.
Location: Tivoli, NY
Come for the: no-frills vibe and incredible lake views.
Stay for the: OG campground setup.
If it had a tag line: actually, it does—”Not new, not improved, since 1925.”
Location: Elkhorn, WI
Come for the: fact that you can bring pets, and for the home cooking in the morning. The owners, Sally and Doug, are on-site to cook. (Waffles. Trust.)
Stay for the: board games, books, two living rooms, views of the Shawangunk Ridge cliffs, hammocks, hot tubs year-round…
If it had a tag line: thank goodness for NYC ex-pats who understand creature comforts.
