These modern cabin rentals will help warm up your winter

Northern Lights, Frederick, Wisconsin

Nordlys was born out of a love and appreciation for the wilderness of northwest Wisconsin. The owners had a small cabin on nearby Wood Lake and wanted to share the beauty of the area. They found the perfect 140-acre plot of land and hired a Twin Cites architect to design two Scandinavian masterpieces. The glass MetalLark places the living area on the second floor for sweeping views of a spacious meadow, while the low-lying LongHouse is nestled in the woods overlooking the lake.

Annaway Place, Richland Center, Wisconsin

The Driftless region’s expanse of southern Wisconsin has captivated creatives like Frank Lloyd Wright for decades. Find your inspiration in one of Anaway’s seven residences. The striking black woodland House looks like a big treehouse – spiral staircase and all. If you have a large group, book The Barn which has bathtubs, fire pits and space for 12 people.

Frame A at Dunlap Hollow, Rockbridge, Ohio

Dark and moody this cabin is not. In the heart of the Hocking Hills, Dunlap Hollow’s airy A-frame showcases the surrounding pine forest through large triangular windows and 20 skylights. Gather a group of friends – up to 10 people – and use the cabin as a base for hiking. There are private trails on site, or many more at area state parks. Soak your tired legs with a dip in the outdoor hot tub.

Getaway, multiple locations

Getaway’s sleek black minivans emphasized the views. One wall of each small two-wheeled cabin is a large window facing the forest, away from the other cabins. Getaway is always located within a two-hour drive of a major city, and its 10 Midwestern outposts are spread across seven states. The cabins are stocked with s’mores kits and firewood (for an additional cost) so you don’t have to worry about getting your own.

Cuyuna Cove, Crosby, Minnesota

When the lake district in northern Minnesota freezes over, visit Cuyuna Cove, where each cabin built for two has a queen bed and a kitchenette. Guests can visit the redwood sauna, fat tire bike, snowshoe or Hokski on groomed trails directly accessible from the property. If you’d rather be near Lake Superior, the owners have just opened Tofte Trails, a retreat on the North Shore.
