Oregon has plenty of cabin retreats to choose from: you can stay in secluded rentals in the middle of the woods, just steps from the Pacific coastline, or in remote mountain cabins high up in the Cascades. You can’t go wrong with any of them, really – or going any time of year. But there’s something especially relaxing about renting out a log cabin for the weekend in the middle of the winter – when the weather’s cold, and you just want to curl up by the fireplace, in a cabin far away from the chaos of everyday life. If you’re experiencing a little bit of cabin fever at home, these quiet rentals across Oregon may be exactly what you need this cold, stressful season.
1. Coast Cabins, Manzanita
Coast Cabins provide a more private, secluded retreat than average beach hotels, just a short walk from the coastline in Manzanita. Guests can cozy up in any of their deluxe cabins, spacious lofts or stylish coastal homes.
Gorgeous location aside, their amenities could make anyone feel at home. Guests are welcome to Oregon wine & beverages at check-in, plus fresh fruit and chocolates for every cabin, and s’mores kits at each fire pit. Some cabins also have their own special additions, like “The Spa” – which includes a private sauna and outdoor jet spa you can soak in. (But you can check out all of their luxurious accommodations here.)
Nestled within Silver Falls State Park, these cabins provide a perfect home base before hiking the area for the day. Conveniently, the lodging is right by the Trail of Ten Falls – which you can hike to see 10 of the park’s most lovely cascades on just one 7.2-mile loop.
They have cabins available to rent in two locations: Upper Smith Creek and Lower Smith Creek. The Lower Smith rentals are a little more luxurious, since they have their own private bathroom and shower, while the Upper Smith cabins offer a more rustic stay amid tall century-old forest, with showers available in a building nearby. Each one comes with a coffee maker, and can sleep about 1-2 people. (Get rates & reservations on their website here.)
3. Lake Creek Lodge, Camp Sherman
If you’re looking to get lost in the forest for a few days, Lake Creek Lodge is the place to go. They provide quaint, remote cabins deep within the woods of Central Oregon. The cabins and lodge surround a rushing stream with charming bridges, an on-site restaurant, and a pool for guests to swim in.
28 cabins are available total, all varying in size and amenities. Some were built back as early as the 1920s and offer fabulous views overlooking the creek. To see their rates and availability, check out their website.
4. Crystal Crane Hot Springs, Burns
I can’t imagine a better way to relax than in one of these waterfront cabins by a natural hot springs. Crystal Crane is an oasis in the southeastern Oregon desert, with both remote lodging & pools you can soak in just off Highway 78. Aside from cabins, they also have rustic teepees for guests to stay in, and spots for both tent and RV camping.
Each cabin is set along the shores of the 102-degree hot springs pond, and some are themed and cutely decorated. Guests can pick between one with a bear theme (pictured), a Western theme, a fishing theme, or one with a lodge theme. And if you’re looking for a more private soaking experience, they’ve got you covered too. Visitors can also request an hour or two in their gorgeous cedar-enclosed private bathhouses (of course for a small extra fee). Read more about Crystal Crane Hot Springs on their website.
5. Cooper Spur Mountain Resort, Mt. Hood
Cooper Spur isn’t just a great place to hit the slopes, but they have some of the coziest log cabins to spend the night in after a long day skiing on the mountains. The resort, set within Mount Hood National Forest, has both rustic log rentals and more exquisite hotel rooms if you’re looking for something a little fancier.
Guests can stay in their Homestead Cabin (which was built way back in the 1800s) for a private getaway for two, or any of their five deluxe cabins that sleep up to 8 people. (Get rates and reservations here.)
6. Green Springs Inn & Cabins, Ashland
Secluded in the southern Cascades near Ashland, Green Springs Inn rents out nine cabins all built with their own milled lumber. The 1-bedrooms are powered by solar energy, and come with a king size bed, wood burning stove, full kitchen and bathroom.
