Room Service Top Picks: Log-lover hideaways

Cabins in the woods.

The Daily Navigator strives to help you make the best decisions in travel. While we produce content according with strict editorial integrity this post may contain references to partner products. Here’s a full explanation for how our team makes money .

Being so close to Halloween, I was a little trepidatious about this week’s “cabin” theme. Bad things happen in cabins. There’s literally a horror movie named Cabin in the Woods, where a group of teenagers are (Spoiler Alert) ripped apart by dragon-bats, impaled by unicorns, and have their faces eaten by a merman! It’s not a good time!

After voicing my concerns about cabins, my editor told me to shut up, not to mention dragon-bats, and tell you everything will be fine.

Unless, of course, you’re a jock, trying to get lucky, or split your group up for any reason. In which case, you may as well not read about this wonderful selection of log-lover dream getaways.

Our top picks: Log-lover hideaways

pacific northwest cabin

Pacific Northwest Forest Cabin

Granite Falls, Washington

$$$ | Pics →

Kicking off our rustic retreats is this architecture lover’s dream cabin. The angular getaway is nestled cozily amongst the fresh greenery of the Pacific Northwest, making it the perfect base for outdoor enthusiasts.

A gushing creek sits just below the granite ledge the hut is perched on, free for use, and the perfectly situated hot tub is alluring at any time of the year. Inside, guests are treated to a minimal but comfortably designed space that can host up to six people, making the $345 a night rate even more palatable.

Comporta, Portugal

For those in need of a true getaway from everyday life, Cabana No Rio gifts guests with two small renovated fishing huts facing out onto the Sado River in Portugal. You won’t find typical hotel trappings here – the huts have only a bed, two armchairs, a simple (but stylish) kitchen, and a few odds and ends.

What it lacks in amenities, it makes up for in utter serenity. The huts are designed as a retreat in the truest sense, and everyone who visits leaves feeling a little more alive and even more in tune with the world.

The bare brilliance of Iceland. A perfect cabin plonked in the middle of it. Someone nice to share it with. Do you really need more convincing on this one? 

You do? Fine. It’s only $270 a night. Get booking.
