The 15 Best A-Frame Cabins On Airbnb

Sep 4, 2020

Category: News

A-Frame cabins have quickly become one of the most recognizable architectural styles in the world. They’re the face of glamping, offering renters a perfect balance between luxury amenities and off-grid immersion. Aside from the fact that they’ve helped to redefine what society understands as a true bucket-list experience, they’re also relatively chic, embodying old-time character, and capitalizing on pine-country coziness.

Due to their popularity, they’ve become a mainstay within high-altitude locales, placing them at the forefront for adaptation into rentable Airbnb spaces. Owners have found that there’s a certain allure to the A-Frame style, and have exacerbated that with cleanly-tailored interiors, vintage furnishings, well-outfitted kitchens, and loft areas that look like something you might see on an influencer’s Instagram post. But we don’t blame them; there’s a reason that they’ve captivated builders and denizens alike for almost 100 years. Below, we’ve outlined a number of our favorite offerings tailored strictly to the Airbnb service, providing you with some awe-inspiring places to “set up shop” whenever you decide to pop into town. So pack your bags and throw on your hiking boots, we’re headed to the mountains.

Storybook A-Frame Cabin

We’re kicking off our list with the Storybook A-Frame Cabin — a perfectly-sized slice of heaven located in the forests of Boone, North Carolina. This rustic abode features a two-bedroom, one-bath layout, making it an attractive proposition or traveling parties of four or less. Inside, the 700-square-foot home boasts one of the most elegant interior design languages we’ve seen in a cabin, thanks to its clean, minimalistic lines, bright hues, and cozy furniture. Upstairs, a lofted sleeping area provides renters with a true treehouse feel, while also providing heightened views of the space’s folk art detailing. If you’re one for the outdoors, there’s also a relaxing socialization area where you’ll be able to partake in serene views of the nearby creek.

LILLA NORR A-Frame

The LILLA NORR A-Frame is a cozy abode in the heart of Brook Park, Minnesota. It boasts a rich history as an all-original dwelling dating all the way back to 1978 when builders first broke ground on its five-acre plot. Translating to “Little North” in Swedish, it acts as an extension to one of Minneapolis’s most prominent vintage goods stores, Arlee Park, taking on era-specific features and nostalgic knick-knacks from throughout history. An expertly-designer interior space provides cozy nooks for reading, writing, and disconnecting from the monotony of everyday life, while a two-bed, one-bath layout provides just enough square footage for up to four people. Resting inside is only part of the fun. Bring your own canoe or kayak if you’re planning on traversing the Snake River, and don’t forget to pack the fishing gear for a quiet afternoon on the shore.

This two-bed, one-bath dwelling is located in the beautiful forests of Grant, Colorado, and boasts of 3.5 acres of space for guests to explore and escape. Inside, you’ll find various areas that draw inspiration from “hygge” — a Danish word that embodies comfort, coziness, and simple pleasures. While simplistic in nature, the Hygge Chalet boasts one of the more eclectic feels that we’ve come across, thanks, in large part, to its minimalistic interior, lofted sleeping area, and substantial kitchen. A small, wood-burning stove only adds to its allure. Head outside to partake in a variety of different activities, including social gatherings on the porch, individual hammock naps, or a group sauna session, courtesy of the space’s separate sweat room.

Transforming A-Frame

The Transforming A-Frame is a pet-friendly glamping getaway located outside of Bonner, Montana. Unlike some of the other offerings on our list, this escape is truly “off-grid,” meaning that you’ll have to abide by the rules of nature to enjoy it to its fullest. That means a short, one-minute trek to the enclosed outdoor bathroom, a shower area that’s heated by the sun (solar), and a regimen that’s dictated by the mannerisms of the big glowing orb in the sky. Inside the A-Frame, however, you’ll be entirely disconnected, allowing you to cut-away from society for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Since you won’t be spending all of your time inside the two-bedroom abode, you’ll be happy to hear that the dwelling’s unique location promises unprecedented immersion within nature, including various readily-accessible hiking trails, robust wildlife, and awe-inspiring views that you’ll have to see to believe.

Unlike many of the offerings on our list, the Sky Haus is only a one-bedroom, one-bath structure, but it makes due with its open-ended interior, which sleeps up to four individuals. A lofted rest area overlooks the space’s cozy living quarter, which has been outfitted with a widescreen television, ambient lighting, and a gas fireplace that’s controlled via thermostat. Head out back to enjoy your afternoon on the home’s elongated deck, which boasts its very own hot tub.
