Cabin Getaway: Inspiration and Locations to Make It Happen

After the holidays I tend to dream of a cabin getaway where I can hole up for a couple of days with a book or stack of favorite magazines in hand. Just give me a little place where I can turn off the noise and activity while enjoying a bit of nature. You know, a couple of days where you don’t have to wake up at a certain time or head off to run errands.
