Who doesn’t love the idea of a log cabin in the woods? So cute, so quaint, so cozy. And frankly, so uncomfortable.
So I set out to find log cabins that turn the whole idea of a rustic vacation on its ear. With thick Oriental carpets, fine linens, antique accessories, and deep soaking tubs, these places beckon you to uncork a good bottle of wine, open a best seller, and settle in for a night of luxury and romance.
And it’s hard to imagine a more congenial setting for a small wedding: A gourmet camp meal served at a communal table, dancing in the barn, and s’mores around a bonfire—maybe a ghost story?
My latest post for CNTraveler.com delivers the details on five retreats—Lake Placid Lodge, L’Auberge de Soleil, Dunton Hot Springs, Winvian, and Ranch at Rock Creek—that make a wedding in the woods (or just a couple’s weekend) fairly close to heaven on earth.
