64 Woodsy Cabins and Cottages

From Chic Fishing Huts to Expansive Hidden Homes

— May 20, 2012 — Art & Design
With increasingly stressful lifestyles becoming the norm, a good getaway complete with woodsy cabins and cottages is all most people need to reset. No matter how far the drive, people are willing to go to great lengths for a nature-laden mini-vacation.

Fortunately, outdoor living options have gotten some amazing updates over the past few years. From extremely modern to better-equipped abodes, some arguably necessary as well as some just plain pretty updates have taken place. Because the idea of getting away is about relaxation, many changes have been in the name of an easier weekend. Often appropriately eco-friendly, cabin getaways have also been compacted in some cases, allowing for more guilt-free enjoyment of the great outdoors.

Whatever your reasons for getting away, the cottage and cabin industry has seen great changes and a move toward the modern. Love or hate these updated abodes, there's no denying that they make outdoorsy living more livable.
