Feb 27 2020, 6:29 pm

Winter is a season of big sweaters, warm beverages, and caving into carb cravings. (What? It’s cold, and we need more insulation!)

It is also an ideal time to sit next to the fire and curl up with a bunch of blankets to enjoy the calm contentment that accompanies being secluded in a lodging destination of your choice.

But even as the snow starts to melt and the world begins to thaw to make way for spring, it doesn’t mean that these immersive wilderness retreats must come to an end.

Whether you choose to venture to a snow bunny ski hill or find your own hidden corner of the forest, camping or glamping season is just around the corner, and there is never a wrong time to venture into nature and unwind.

So buckle up, because here is our list of five wonderfully warm and cozy cabin escapes that are perfect for any season.

For the past 20 years, Harald and Kim Hatterscheidt have transformed their 60-acre property into a breathtaking mountain getaway that warms the hearts of all visitors that have the pleasure of staying there.

There are only seven cabins across the property, providing guests with an immersive nature experience that is free of crowds.

“We don’t think it’s relaxing to be jammed in next to a neighbour on each side of you. You could have stayed home for that,” the couple explains on the company website.

If you’re looking to unplug and disconnect entirely, you’re in luck! The cabins were intentionally created to exclude amenities such as WiFi, TVs, or cell service and have replaced them with in-the-moment activities such as potlucks, outdoor activity lists, and family-oriented games.
