Cabins near L.A. on Airbnb

Natural light streams into every corner of this serene home, thanks to plenty of floor-to-ceiling windows and skylights. On a chilly afternoon, you could curl up next to a window to read and doze. When it warms up, stretch your legs on a nearby hike then sink into the tub for a restorative soak. The gorgeous birch panelling, luxe furnishings and natural beauty all around this home make it an ideal weekend retreat. In fact, it's such a beauty that it was even featured in Vogue. From $250 per night

It's hard to believe that just an hour and a half north of Los Angeles, you could find yourself sipping wine in front of a roaring fire at this authentic log cabin. Hosts have purposely made this space a digital-free experience to help guests unwind, which means no TV (but yes, there's Wi-Fi). Instead, you'll have board games, puzzles, a gas BBQ and ice cream maker, and countless hiking trails through old-growth forest on your doorstep. From $146 per night


Conveniently located near Big Bear Lake, Lake Arrowhead and Snow Valley Mountain Resort, this A-frame cabin makes an ideal home base for a weekend playing in the snow. Ski or snowboard at Snow Valley, ride tubes or sleds at Grizzly Ridge Tubing Park or soar above the forest floor with Action Zipline Tours. After a day full of activity, you’ll be relieved to return to your jazzy bolt-hole and sink into the plush California King bed in the loft. From $82 per night

Just on the edge of the Westside, this Topanga hideaway provides a lovely escape for city dwellers who only have time for a short trip. At just 240 square feet, it certainly qualifies as a tiny house, but feels cozy rather than cramped. You’ll find a cute little creek and mini farm with chickens, ducks and goats on the property. From $148 per night


The contrast between the home’s minimalist architecture and perch atop weathered boulders dotted with pinon pines creates remarkable curb appeal—if there were a curb in the desert, that is. If there architecture weren’t enough to convince you to visit, consider the four-person hot tub, stargazing platform with loungers, outdoor fireplace and enormous steel deck. Just, uh, prepare to break the bank staying here. From $798 per night

This renovated 1960s chalet boasts panoramic views of the ski slopes, a rustic stone fireplace, a foosball table and a 4K smart TV. In other words, everything you need for a cozy winter weekend. Snow Summit Resort is right around the corner and there's enough space to camp out in the backyard but we wouldn’t blame you for wanting a weekend full of Netflix and chilling by the fire. From $407 per night


Drive down a private dirt road to find this secluded redwood cabin directly across from the pristine Ojai Meadows Preserve. Rustic design elements like a farmhouse sink, porthole window and hammock swing give the cabin a bohemian feel. Outdoorsy guests might want to hike nearby trails to catch the sun setting over the Topatopa Mountains before sinking into bed in the loft bedroom. From $95 per night
