12 Cabin Escapes to Inspire Your Next Weekend Getaway
"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." -Henry David Thoreau
Spring, summer, fall, winter – no matter the season, we're eternally itching to get out of the city and into a cabin in the woods. But while we're sitting at our desks from Monday to Friday, there's no #cabinporn Instagram account better than The Cabin Chronicles when it comes to getting stoked for another weekend of warrioring. To share the inspiration, we hit up our buddy JJ Eggers, The Cabin Chronicles' founder and man behind the 'gram, to pull together some of his favorite cabin features from around the country. It was hard to choose just one, which is why we have 12 to get you started on planning your next weekend getaway.

The Storybook A-Frame
"Escape to a place ripped right out of a children's storybook; if Hansel and Gretel moved to the Pacific Northwest, this is where they'd live. And after staring at this photo for a while, don't be surprised if you move beyond the salivation state of the quaint yet upkept presence, and actually move in for a bit." Photo by @k_sto.
The Former Hippie Commune
Oz Farm in Point Arena, California, is a certified organic and biodynamic farm where you not only escape, but create, harvest, and collaborate. Whether it's a workshop, wedding, or just a retreat you're after, this Mendocino getaway is certain to refresh your spirits. Photo by @villageozfarm.
The Treehouse Slide
"Thanks to this photo, Durham, Ontario just may have emerged from obscurity for you and shot all the way up your bucket list, not-so-kindly nudging the top item to the next perch down. Imagine the late nights spent chatting on those tree stumps before you decide to turn in for the night knowing you're going to wake up in the treehouse you always imagined as a kid. And in true child-like fashion, you would get to take the slide to the bottom — naturally." Photo by @lynneknowlton.
