The Cabin Edit

Who hasn’t spent at least a few hours daydreaming about curling up in front of a fire in a cosy log-cabin somewhere hidden in the woods? 

Autumn is the perfect time of year from a cabin getaway: the leaves are crisp and golden, there’s a coolness to the air that makes you want to toast marshmallows, and you’re less likely to see lots of people on your long hikes.

With this in mind, here’s a round up of my favourite cabins that still have availability for the autumn. Book soon, because nights in these places are going very, very fast. 

Autumn is the perfect time of year from a cabin getaway

For total romance

Rerik Cabin

What? Two identical apartments in a stunningly created cabin with Scandinavian-inspired interiors, a stone's throw from the Ostsee.

Where? Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

I love: Long, windy walks on a beach are one of my favourite things in the world, and here you can be on the sand in a matter of minutes. Plus I adore the architecture of this place.

You might not like: There’s no fireplace.

Available: From October onwards.

Moselle River Cabins

What? Three oh-so-romantic, minimalist cabins with huge glass windows, on the ridge of a valley, overlooking a river: adults only!

Where? Rhineland-Palatinate.

I love: One of Germany’s best wine regions is right on your doorstep, and you can spend evenings stargazing from the comfort of your chalet.

Available: From mid-October onwards.

Siegfried Cabin

What? Modern cabin with bright, minimalist interiors on an unspoilt Baltic-Sea peninsula.

Darß Cabin

What? A modern take on local architecture: a bold wooden house with bright interiors, a fireplace and private sauna.

With kids

What? Designer cabin that blends natural materials with sleek, bold interiors, creating a stylish stay, surrounded by fir trees in the Wendland.
