Magical and Inspiring Cabins Across the Globe

Magical and Inspiring Cabins Across the Globe

There is hardly a person the planet who has never considered escaping the hustle and bustle of civilization and supplanting with a peaceful log cabin deep in a forest. Well, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that some folks have actually built their dream vacation home in the most mesmerizing places on the globe. These cabins and chalets aren’t only magical in appearance but inspirational in character.

The Willow Treehouse in Vermont (USA)

Situated at the shores of a small lake, the cabin that doubles as a treehouse is just one of five cabins at the Treehouse Village Inn in Vermont. The Northeastern US state is famous for its mesmerizing forest landscape, so it’s no wonder we start our list with this architectural gem.

Tucked at the feet of a mountain range (South Newfane), the property is the ideal backdrop for wedding ceremonies, especially in winter when the surrounding hillside is covered with snow. Just imagine how newlyweds feel like waking up to a vista of a frozen lake and a forest in the distance.

Estate Bungalow in Matugama (Sri Lanka)

For centuries, Sri Lankan farmers have built lookout posts called Chenas. They would climb a “watch hut” to see if a foe, a wild animal, or a fire is nearing their crops at night. The traditional building style inspired local builders to perch a cabin between the jungle and a rubber plantation. The cabin is simple in design and opens up to a large terrace at the top, 3rd floor.

Bonnie Bell cabin in Colorado (USA)

Backcountry Colorado isn’t as dull as Americans like to think. In fact, San Juan Mountains conceal a cabin that sits alone on a hilltop, allowing its owners all the privacy they can wish for. One look at the Bonnie Bell cabin during a starry night will make you think that hums still can live in harmony with the cosmos.

Release Wanaka chalet in Wanaka (New Zealand)

Speaking of remote places, New Zealand’s wilderness seems like the perfect place to erect a vacation house. The country’s South Island does boast such a chalet or a cabin, whichever term you prefer. More than 1.700 meters above sea level, the Release Wanaka Mountain top chalet is accessible by helicopter.

Skiers and hikers first arrive at basecamp before they are airlifted to the modern-looking chalet that offers stunning alpine views of Mount Pisa, Mount Hyde, and the nearby Wãnaka Lake.

Shipwreck Lodge cabins in Möwebaai (Namibia)

Skeleton Coast in the Namibian desert got its name from the hundreds of ships that got stranded there over the centuries. This gave an idea to savvy local hospitality workers to build lodge cabins at Namibia’s Atlantic coast.

These cabins are made to resemble shipwrecks that are situated in the middle of a desert teeming with wildlife. You can venture out on a safari to see lions, hyenas, and giraffes. Each cabin is eco-friendly and sustainable, as even the local communities help build them.

Inverness A-Frame cabinin California (USA)

Another American cabin on our list is situated in West Marin, California. It features an A-frame that is commonly used for mountain cabins in Marin country and elsewhere across the world. The design includes the use of durable slate roofing that can last for decades out in the wild if maintained properly. The cabin is rented to those with deep-enough pockets but you can always admire its looks from afar. The capacity of the cabin is 6 occupants.

Diogene in Weil am Rhein (Germany)

In terms of size, the Diogene micro-hut is the smallest on our list. The minimalist design by Renzo Piano offers all the modern amenities. The cabin has photovoltaic panels at its tiny roof, a rainwater collection system mounted to the roof, a geothermal heat pump, and energy-efficient LED lighting. The “hut” is completely self-sustainable despite its size and there is even a foldable couch and a wooden table inside!

A mountain cabin in Laterns (Austria)

In neighboring Austria, Marte Marte is the author of a mountain cabin that resembles a concrete block. Located in the tiny village of Laterns in the district of Feldkirch, this cabin made is made from rough concrete and its features oak doors, a spiral staircase, and a leisure room.

Tintaldra Cabin near Albury (Australia)

We end our list with a simple, yet inspiring Australian cabin. The idea of its designers was to create a completely self-sufficient cabin perfect for rural areas, such as the Outback. Although Tintaldra Cabin has a futuristic design, it functions off-grids, i.e. it’s environmentally-friendly.

Like in the Germs micro-cabin, there are tanks that store rainwater the power is provides using a solar panel on the roof. Because of its size and the color scheme, the cabin is camouflaged against the backdrop of red sand, improving safety, which is essential when you live far away from civilization.

The 9 cabins listed here are just a small portion of the total number of log cabins on the planet. In some cabins, the design is what is breathtaking, while the surroundings of other cabins is what blows spectators away.
