For most of us, travel offers an opportunity to escape and unwind in settings as far removed from our day-to-day as possible. With the perfect mix of rustic charm, luxurious views, and quaint surroundings, there is something to be said about escaping to the remote locale of a log cabin. From mountain to ocean views, palm tree to evergreen, there’s a log cabin out there for everyone.
These back-to-basics getaways are exactly what you need to relax, recharge, and revamp your next escape. Booking.com, the global leader in connecting travellers with the widest choice of incredible places to stay, has put together some of the world’s most secluded and sought-after log cabin getaways for you to visit this year.
A holiday to Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, a luxurious Florida Keys retreat, feels like you’ve entered your own tropical haven. While away the days swimming in clear blue seas before reading a book and watching the sun set from your private veranda.
A Lodge With a View
Sitting on the shore of the scenic Lyngen Fjord, Norway’s Lyngen Lodge boasts a uniquely remote location by the Lyngen Mountains and 300 kilometres above the Arctic Circle. The rustic lodge is constructed from Norwegian pine with a grass roof to provide insulation for the deliciously cosy and charming interior.
Hide Out in the Rainforest
Hidden away in the Amazon Rainforest, Juma Amazon Lodge is a surreal sight. The collection of simply furnished bungalows blend in perfectly with the landscape, overlooking the lush green canopy and the peaceful Juma Lake. Completely disconnected and secluded, it’s an ideal place to lie back and listen to the sounds of the jungle from the hammock on your private balcony.
Bear Hunting and Whale Watching
Secluded surf spots, private fishing charters and wildlife spotting is all possible at the Long Beach Lodge Resort on Vancouver Island. Enjoy a menu of fresh catch complemented by ocean views through wall-to-wall windows at the Tofino based cabin getaway.
Peak Your Interests
Located in the Yoho National Park and framed by the Rocky Mountains, you’ll be able to experience the fullness of nature far from civilization at Emerald Lake Lodge. Hike up the surrounding mountains, splash in the flowing river, watch for wild animals, and enjoy the panoramic views. In this haven, you can be adventurous or simply sit back and bask in nature’s glory.
