If Airbnb’s most wish-listed properties in all 50 US states are anything to go by, American travelers are desperate for a picturesque escape to the countryside. From log cabins to tiny homes to treehouses, travelers seem to want to vacation somewhere that’s close to nature, architecturally charming on the outside, and homely on the inside. Few structures fit those criteria better than A-frames — the quintessential cabins in the woods, with their triangular facades, steep gabled roof, and small footprint — so we’ve selected the cutest 13 A-frame cabins in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania that are available for rent on Airbnb this year.
The Maine Frame is located in the mountains of the Carrabassett Valley, on a private, wooded property. The cabin can accommodate up to six guests in its simple yet comfortable interior, and has a large deck for peaceful morning coffees, long summer dinners with friends, or even nights of stargazing, as well as a fire pit further down the property. This rustic A-frame is close to Sugarloaf Mountain Resort, Maine’s largest ski area, and is near hiking trails so you can visit the surrounding area easily.
As pretty on the outside as on the inside, this A-frame cabin emits a cool retro vibe with its mid-century furniture and vintage color combinations. Located in the woods near the town of Bethlehem, the Dream A-Frame can accommodate two guests maximum and is a great option for couples in need of some romantic time away from it all. The best feature of the cabin is its facade with stylish accents of color and large, imposing windows that bring in lots of light and allow for beautiful views of the surrounding woods.
This A-frame cabin can accommodate up to 11 guests, including eight adults, making it a great choice for large families or groups of friends keen to spend time in White Mountain National Forest. While the design and decor are simple, the cabin has cool features, such as floor-to-ceiling windows that provide great light and forest views, and a large, private deck for outdoor meals. There’s also a picnic table and a fire pit down by the creek that runs on the property.
With its blue exterior and fairy lights on the facade, the Alpine A-frame is as cute as cabins get. Inside, the decor is modern and stylish, with wood panels throughout for a cozy vibe and a mid-century fireplace worth a magazine cover. The cabin is meant for two guests only and is located on a private, forested property — perfect for low-key honeymooners. The property is only 15 minutes away from Mount Snow mountain resort, just five minutes from the small town of Wilmington, and walking distance to Lake Raponda where you can fish, swim, kayak, and more.
Like the Alpine A-Frame above, the Kingdom A-Frame cabin is a beautiful shade of blue, is decorated with fairy lights, and oozes charm, but it’s a better option for families as it can accommodate up to six guests (up to four adults) in its three cozy bedrooms. The interior decor is on point, with stylish furnishings, tasteful art, and a wood stove and wood panels that bring in a rustic feel. There’s a deck, patio, and fire pit in the backyard so you can spend as much time as possible outside to take in the tranquility of the 3.8-acre property.
This 1965 A-frame cabin has a vintage feel, but is fully functional and very comfortable with its woodfire stove, retro kitchen, large living space, and two bright bedrooms. For those who don’t have any vacation days left but want to get away from their home office, this cabin has a dedicated work space in the loft and fast Wi-Fi. There’s even a telescope for those who are keen to observe the beauty of the night sky.
This simple A-frame cabin is a cute, yet no-frills property that can accommodate up to six guests if you don’t mind squeezing in. The best features of the cabin are the comfy and romantic loft bedroom and peaceful front deck. Located in the Adirondacks, the cabin is close to Gore Mountain and the High Peaks area for seasonal outdoor activities like hiking and biking. It’s also only 15 minutes from Minerva Lake and a short drive from Schroon Lake and Lake George.
>A Black A-Frame: Sustainable Catskills Cabin
This newly renovated 1961 A-frame cabin is located on two acres of woodlands on a private road in the Catskills, making it perfect for travelers looking for privacy, style, and a place to flex their cooking skills. The interior is modern and spacious, but retains the homely feel you want from a cabin in the woods. There’s a brand new chef’s kitchen with everything you need to cook your own gourmet meals and two full bathrooms with tubs so you can soak any stress away. There are three outdoor sitting areas for guests to enjoy: a large deck, a picnic table on the side of the cabin, and a screened gazebo.
This modern A-frame cabin in Remsen has a simple and chic design inside and out. The elegant black roof and wooden facade catches the eye, and inside, there’s nothing to be disappointed about if you like a minimalist modern-western decor. The highlights of the interior include the sleek kitchen and bathroom, floor-to-ceiling windows, and an open-floor plan. The coolest feature is the motorized roll-out bed that moves from the upstairs bedroom to the balcony for a night of stargazing.
This modern A-frame cabin is located on a 2.5-acre wooded lot right on the bank of the Maurice River. The cabin features modern and minimalist aesthetics, both inside and out, with clean, straight lines, few colors, spacious rooms, and large windows. There’s a large deck as well as a wood-fired hot tub for relaxing nights outside.
While this newly renovated A-frame is set on a wooded property in the Pocono Mountains, it is located within a gated community only two hours away from New York City, so it’s not as secluded as some might think. The upside of the location is the availability of amenities like an art center, tennis court, swimming pool, and more. Although the cabin looks simple and modest from the outside, the interior decor, inspired by Scandinavian design, is elegant, modern, and instills comfort. There are three bedrooms, a chef’s kitchen, and a bathroom with views that will have you spending long hours in the tub. There’s also a large deck and fire pit outside.
This beautiful A-frame cabin in Greentown is a great mix of contemporary and rustic charm. While the furnishings are modern, there are touches of retro decor throughout the accommodation — mid-century furniture, funky lamps, and colorful accessories. That said, the cabin keeps its countryside roots with beautiful light wood flooring and paneling. There are plenty of indoor plants and large windows that bring the natural world inside the home, but if you’d rather spend more time outside, you can make good use of the deck, the hammock, or the fire pit.
This A-frame cabin looks like the cliché cabin-in-the-woods from the outside and like a big, modern city loft on the inside. The cabin can accommodate up to six guests in its vast and airy space thanks to its three bedrooms. The best part is the floor lounge made of netting where guests can lay back and relax above the sitting room. If you’re looking for a country vibe, pass your way, this cabin is for those who love contemporary and trendy aesthetics. Located in Henryville, the cabin is on a wooded property, but there are neighbors nearby, so use the outdoor hot tub appropriately.
