Airbnb Cabin in Ohio

2. Wilder at Hocking Hills – Aspen Haus

Location: New Plymouth, Ohio

If you want an Airbnb cabin with the modern feels, you should rent the Aspen Haus.
Photo Credit: VRBO

A modern cabin expertly designed by talented interior decorators nestled between the trees in a private woods? Definitely worth a stay! But aside from its charming design, it has more in store for friends and families looking to unwind, relax, and just enjoy nature and appreciate the beauty of the wilderness. This cabin also offers a relaxing hot tub, fire pit, spacious rooms, and a myriad of activities that you won’t ever get bored!

From the owner:

Each property that is part of the Wilder collection has been uniquely designed by a different interior designer from across the US and Canada. Aspen Haus was conceptualized and designed by Michelle Roderick-Lee, who resides in Northern New York with her husband. Her hope for this cabin is that it feels like a calm retreat inspired by the unlimited beauty found in nature. Michelle and her diy/design work can be found on IG at @dreaminghomeblog.

The cabin has a bedroom with a king bed and room darkening blinds, full bathroom with shower, and an open concept living room, dining room and kitchen space. Large windows in the living room and bedroom look out onto a private deck, hot tub, fire pit, and of course, the tranquil woods of Wilder. A 3 seater sofa pulls out into a queen bed in the living room to accommodate 2 more guests.

At Wilder, one of our goals is being eco-friendly and kind to the land we’ve been blessed to own. Because of that, we disturbed very few trees to build our modern cabins, so you get to walk up to your cabin through the woods (like sleepover camp for adults!) instead of drive right up to the door.

What Guests have to say about this modern cabin

This vacation cabin has 18 reviews on Vrbo, with a perfect of 10 out of 10 score.

Here’s what Hulie had to say about her stay…

This is our second time staying at the Wilder cabins. The location is perfect, it’s quiet and secluded, but not isolated. All of the little things like paper products and hand soap/shampoo are provided, so you don’t have to pack those items. We look forward to trying a third cabin next time!

We have stayed at this cabin several times over the last 20 years. We keep coming back for the location, views, price and comfort.

This is our first stay in a couple of years, and we were very pleased to see that the cabin had been renovated with new appliances and furnishings. We were sad to see the heart-shaped tub go (not really)!

We had to cut our stay short a day due to our daughter going into labor! We will definitely be back!

Airbnb Cabin In Colorado

5. Sage Canyon Cliff House

Location: Cortez, Colorado

If you're a bit of an adventurous type of person, this cabin, built into a canyon, is perfect for you.
Photo Credit: VRBO

If traditional cabins are not your cup of tea, you’re in for a treat with this rental property. This cabin is built into the rock of a real canyon. How cool is that? Aside from this unique and rocking feature (no punt intended), this property will wow you with its contemporary design, and its light wood, huge windows, and modern furnishings that highlight the cabin’s focal piece.

However, we thought you’d like to know that they don’t have televisions, so you don’t take the beauty of the cabin for granite—I mean granted. They do have fast internet connection for work and uploading those gneiss Instagram pics (no more rock puns, we promise!)

From the owner:

Stay on the flank of Sleeping Ute Mountain in historic McElmo Canyon just 40 minutes from Mesa Verde and 20 minutes from the town of Cortez. Featured in Better Homes 2012, the Cliff House is built right into the red rock cliff wall of a private canyon alcove with comfortable amenities, internet, nearby petroglyphs and sweeping views down canyon. A perfect place to base yourself for your next creative endeavor or for rejuvenating and exploring in the wilds of the four corners.

In addition to being built into sandstone rock, the Cliff House is landscaped with native species that bloom all summer. Around the corner from the house, in another private rock alcove, is a little lawn. Enjoy comfortable porch seating with a stunning view.

We purposefully do not provide a TV and hope our space is a nature-inspired respite. That said, we also know you might want to get away and retreat to the Cliff House in order to do some work in-between exploring the Southwest. We have fast, broadband wireless internet with Eero WiFi. Stream music to our Apple HomePod with your iPhone or AirPlay-enabled device. We have a network extender for strong Verizon LTE service.

What Guests have to say about this Cabin

This rental has 276 reviews on Airbnb, with an almost perfect rating of 4.98 out of 5 stars. This property has been awarded an Airbnb guest favorite badge as it’s one of the most loved homes on Airbnb based on ratings, reviews, and reliability.

Here’s what Seren had to say about her stay…

The cliff house was an absolute dream, even more beautiful than the photos can convey. The peace and silence of the canyon was soul-replenishing, and the home itself was cozy, clean, and truly one of a kind. We felt taken care of and right at home, thanks to Grant and Laura’s communication and thoughtfulness.

Can’t wait to return.

What Guests have to say about this A-Frame cabin

This vacation rental has 176 reviews on Airbnb, with an average rating of 4.99 out of 5 stars. This exceptionally high score has earned it a Guest favorite badge.

Here’s what Monika had to say about her stay…

We had a wonderful stay at this cabin. It was nestled in the woods and quiet. The neighbors were a bit closer than I thought but no one was there until we left so it was perfect. We used the fireplace the entire stay and loved it!

The hot tub and soaking bath were perfect as well. Bed was comfortable and main bathroom was good size. Shower upstairs is a tight squeeze but can’t be changed so it is what it is! It snowed during our stay and people showed up in the morning and shovelled the back deck, very thoughtful. The covered canopy to park helped a lot.

My only suggestion would be a better stocked kitchen. No baking pans, can opener, storage containers, and minimal baking dishes, scissors, etc. We made due with what he had but when staying at a home for a longer stay, I wish we had more functional kitchen items since I cook every night.
Still, absolutely loved it and would consider another stay. 🙂
