Cabins are all about relaxing, reconnecting, and repairing the soul. Here are the most extraordinary cabins around the West that will keep you coming back, time and again
Why it’s cozy: Location, location, location. The cabins are bare bones, sans water or electricity, but they’re perched on the edge of the world, overlooking the Pacific, just a stone’s throw from postcard-ready Stinson Beach.
What’s out the door: Whales, waves, sunsets—the Pacific Coast dream. Hiking through the 6,300 acres of surrounding redwood groves. San Francisco is just a 15-minute drive south.
Who will love it: Adventurous types on the ball enough to actually score a reservation. (We recommend calling seven months out—or you can sometimes score last-minute rentals via a lottery; call 415/388-2070 for details.)
