Sometimes all you need is a good cozy-up by a roaring fire with nothing but serene, chill vibes – preferably with a huge mug of cocoa in hand, piled high with whipped cream and marshmallows. And the best place to experience all of that? In a rustic Airbnb cabin located in the middle of a forest, or by the lake with stunning views. How does that sound?

If that sounds right up your street (and we're totally judging you if you hate the idea), consider booking a few nights away for some relaxation in one of these cozy Airbnb cabins in the U.S. From a cottage high about the New Hampshire forests to a log cabin nestled 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.
