Are you looking for a unique getaway? Have you always wanted to vacation in the mountains, or in a cozy wilderness log cabin? Perhaps your idea of relaxation is to curl up by a fire and read a good book. Your dream is more attainable than ever.
There are many log cabin bed and breakfast options for you to choose. So what makes the log cabin B&B unique?
Log cabins provide a unique lodging experience, providing a delightful mix of modern amenities and services with the rustic surroundings of wilderness and great frontier. Many log cabin B&Bs intentionally position themselves in secluded locations, to promote the “great outdoors” ambiance, making them perfect for guests looking for a little peace, quiet, and tranquility. Some log cabin B&Bs have large common areas for gatherings and multiple guest rooms under one roof, log cabin motor inns have separate smaller cabins grouped across the property, and some may rent out a single log cabin for a specified vacation. Log cabins come in many shapes and sizes to fit your vacation needs and personal taste.
Don't want the hassle of cooking meals and making beds? The Bed & Breakfast style log cabin may be a perfect fit. Don't be fool by thinking you will give up luxury to stay in a log cabin. Check out beautiful choices at Select Registry. Your challenge is to decide where you want to vacation.
Cabin Motor Inn
Luxury or “roughen' it”? Just because you’re staying in a log cabin, does not mean you’ll be “roughen’ it.” Many innkeepers of log cabin B&Bs provide all of the modern comforts that you will find in a high-end hotel. Rooms often include a private en suite bathroom with amenities and jetted tub, high definition flat screen TV, WiFi, free in room bottled water, and snacks. Check out a couple of these quaint cabin motor courts and see how you can stay in a cabin and get spoiled at the same time. One mountain cabin offers a full kitchen for meal preparation. The other woodland cabin offers a heart shaped jetted tub for a romantic getaway.
Things To Do
Staying at a log cabin B&B or another cabin getaway can offer guests a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities found at these secluded frontier-like homes. The cabins in wooded areas provide great nature walks, bird-watching, hiking, bike trails, and connection with the environment. Log cabins can offer welcoming front porches, where guests can relax, read or enjoy refreshments. These wooded retreats offer fun unique activities like train rides, check out the Great Smokey Mountains Railroad. Folk Art is a craft practiced in these locales as well.

Unique Handmade Modern Decor
Once inside, many innkeepers of a log cabin keep decor consistent with the frontier theme. Typically there is a large cozy fireplace where one can pull up a rocking chair or a fur rug. This can be particularly enjoyable on cold winter days. While many B&Bs and Inns are updating their decor to provide a modern flair, the log cabin’s decor is chosen to enhance the rich pine log walls, which may include Old Western, Mexican or Native American decor. Wood Carving and nature figurines are also very popular.
