For many areas of the country, it’s been a long, cold, dark and snowy winter. If you want to shake off the doldrums of feeling stuck inside but can’t take a luxury Hawaiian vacation at the moment, consider a mountain cabin retreat. These types of rentals are suited to various tastes, whether your preference is for a rustic, off-the-grid cabin or a grand, fully loaded lodge-style escape. Also, now is a great time to start planning for building your own winter vacation cabin. With spring around the corner, good weather for building is not far away.
The Perks of a Winter Cabin Escape
Here are some reasons people are opting for cabin rentals instead of the typical tropical winter vacation:
- Cross-country skiing
- Respite from internet connectivity and work
- Peace and quiet
- Cozy setting with natural wood fireplaces
Most areas of the country have these types of rental getaways. Cozy rural cabins abound in the East and Northeast regions of the country. For a nightly fee, you and your group can rent out these cabins for one or more days. You can choose the level of amenities you desire, and whether you want to really get away from it all by hiking in a few miles. In places like Colorado, backcountry cabins can be rented by the adventurous types. These huts offer little in the way of amenities, but provide endless opportunities for backcountry skiing and practicing your self-sufficiency skills. Long story short, whatever your particular vacation bent, there is a cabin rental to suit it.
