• relaxing cabin retreats

 

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach.” ― Henry David Thoreau, Walden

 

While the whisper of spring is still far from the horizon, now is the time to take advantage of dark nights and drizzly days. There is something about tramping across frozen ground and beneath the shadows of trees that makes you want to embrace the gift of downtime and write. For those who feel the need to put pen to paper escaping to remote and wild cabins could be just the answer to find a room of one’s own. Spend days collecting lingonberries and firewood, and evenings curled up beside the fire. Pack your journal, a cozy sweater, and lose yourself in the forest of your own thoughts.

 

cabins in the woods

 

 

Treehotel, Lulea, Sweden //

A tiny town hidden beneath the weight of snow – Lulea is celebrated as a simple place. Yet in the branches of the forest you will find architectural prowess as tiny homes cling to the trees. The Treehotel is one of the coolest B&B’s in the world with 7 different pods capturing 7 different styles. From the classic cabin hanging high in the canopy to the futuristic mirrored cube that sits camouflaged in-between the leaves, you can embrace pure cashmere Hygge beside the frozen lake.

The Old Schoolhouse, Eilean Shona, Scotland //

The private island that whipped up the wonder of Neverland, Eilean Shona in Scotland was once a summer retreat for JM Barrie. The Scottish winds may whistle through the trees but you can take sanctuary inside The Old Schoolhouse. Toast your feet beside the coal fire, read by the flickering glow of gas lamp and sink down into a steaming claw footed tub at the end of the day.

 

 

Potter House, Dunton Hot Springs, Colorado //

Wake up to golden sunlight filtering through the peaks surrounding Potter House. In the calm of Colorado, the alpine ghost town of Dunton Hot Springs welcomes you in for a blissful escape. Trout fish shimmer in the ponds, sunset panoramas are sure to make you blush, and according to local lore this is where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid hid out after their heist. With a fireplace in the master bedroom, exposed beams and tartan touches – this is the art of luxury wilderness living.

Plusvilla L, Southern Finland //

Plusvilla L is a marvel of minimalist architecture and seems beautifully at home in the eerie landscape of Southern Finland, where the aurora borealis swirls against a midnight sky that doesn’t fade. Glass walls intercept scented pine and the in-house sauna provides pure rejuvenation after winter walks through forests seemingly frozen in time. Slate and wood floors, cream furnishings, and open plan living with few rooms ensures that Zen can flow through your pen as it does in this space.
