20 Coolest Cabins In The USA For Your Bucket List
Cozy River Cabin At Mt. Rainer, Packwood, Washington

While the A-frame style definitely makes this accommodation unique, this cozy river cabin is even unique among A-frame buildings. The architect behind this building laid as many windows as possible into the design. Basically, you’ll be able to enjoy nature, regardless of whether you are inside this Airbnb or outside of it.
While you could easily curl up with a good book, watch a little Netflix, and play fun board games for the entire duration of your stay in this cozy cabin, you can also easily venture out to see what the area has to offer.
