7 Luxurious Log Cabins You Should Totally Rent

We like log cabins. Especially when traditional log structures offer luxury amenities, epic surroundings, and a hint of modern architecture that elevates the minimalist aesthetic of these settler homes to dream vacation spots.

So we’ve rounded up seven of the most amazing log cabin rentals around the world. If you’re lucky enough to book a stay, maybe bring this book that will teach you everything about the classic home style.

La Datcha Courchevel

France

Cabane en rondins is French for “log cabin.” Memorize that … or simply say La Datcha Courchevel, the name of this stunning log cabin in the French Alps. Five bedrooms sleep 10 guests; royal amenities include a Hammam steam room, saunas, a pool, grand fireplaces, and wine cellars (yeah, multiple). This rental is far from the homes built by frontiersmen in the 1600s. Your stay at La Datcha Courchevel includes the services of a driver, butler, housekeeper, and villa manager, hence the $11,700-$25,267 reservation price.

Eagle Brae

Scotland

Scotland has an amazing mix of forests and woodlands — the perfect environment for log cabins. Eagle Brae enlisted a famous Canadian company to build 10 separate rentals across the 8,000-acre estate in Struy, Inverness-shire. The former family land is now the ultimate self-catering holiday destination. Each cabin is curated to feel clean yet warm. Best part: Each cabin has a wildflower roof that blends into the surrounding land.

UberHaus

Austria

Built slope-side in the Austrian Alps, UberHaus features four floors of chalet-inspired living space, complete with floor-to-ceiling wood interior, plush carpets, family-style living (i.e. a 16-person dining table), and sleek design elements like a steel fireplace. The sprawling complex includes a wine cellar, cinema room, ski storage, gym, spa, pool table, sauna, Hammam sauna, outdoor hot tub, garage, and terrace. While you’re there, make use of a private chef to deliver personalized meals while you’re soaking in your massive master bedroom en-suite bathtub.

Eaglewood Lodge

Ireland

OK, so you don’t want to spend thousands a night for a log cabin. Eaglewood Lodge in Westport, Ireland, is available for a much (much) lower price without sacrificing size or woodsiness. Shy of $400 a night, Eaglewood is scenic, private, and well-known for being a family-style retreat. Hop on the nearby cycle path and take in all the emerald landscape, then retire to the handcrafted log beds for a quiet night.

Hawks Hideaway

Colorado

Not up for a transatlantic flight? Breckenridge, Colorado, is basically the U.S. capital of bougie log cabins. Case in point: Hawks Hideaway, a modern-meets-mountain log cabin rental that sleeps 18. Built on Baldy Mountain, the views beg to be Instagrammed. The architectural goal was to create the perfect entertainment and relaxation rental. Every detail, down to the unique wing-back chairs elegantly marking the head and foot of the dining table, work toward a comfortable but chic experience. We also love the contrast between the scratched dark wood and the ivory walls with silver and gold fixtures. Pack up the entire family and tell them Log Cabin Day is a new tradition.

Chaletdorf Auszeit

Austria

For a more intimate log cabin escape (after all, traditional log cabins weren’t mansions), head to Chaletdorf Auszeit and its two bedrooms and plenty of mountain ambiance. You gotta love that romantic glow of cabin walls under candlelight. Located in an idyllic Austrian mountaineering village, the small chalet includes a personal terrace, sauna, rain shower, and lagoon-like tubs glowing with turquoise water.

Hölick Sea Resort

Sweden

Hidden in an aromatic pine forest in Sweden is a traditional camping site turned luxury lodge. Hölick Sea Resort is built entirely out of wood, using a traditional faltak wooden roof that clads the outside in lumber. Inside, whites and blacks come into play with other grainy textures, giving the typical log cabin look (which often lean toward being cozy and crowded) a light and spacious feel.

Can’t afford a stay in any of these badass buildings (don’t worry, we can’t either)? At least you can make your home or apartment smell like a cabin in the woods.
