Winter is here, but the getaways don't have to stop. With the temperature dropping fast across the country, you're not the only one that feels like cozying up in front of a wood-burning stove. And the best place to get your hot-chocolate on is in a cozy Airbnb cabin located in the middle of a forest (or at the edge of a lake—we'll take either). So book some nights of relaxation at one of these cozy Airbnb cabins in the U.S. From a cottage high about the New Hampshire forests to a log cabin nestles in a snowy meadow, these are the most picturesque and secluded Airbnbs you can rent in the U.S. Plus, they're really close to the best ski resorts and places to go snowboarding in the USA.

This newly renovated property has the look and feel of a modern farmhouse in the mountains. Not only is the location breathtaking, but so are the accomdations!
