Cozy Cabins on Airbnb for Anyone Who Loves the Après More than the Ski
Cold temperatures call for turning up the coziness, and if you're going to be in the snow, you might as well do it in style. Airbnb rounded up their most wishlisted ski homes around the world based on internal Airbnb data, and the listings will make you want to pack up your best winter gear and head to the mountains. Here are eight cabins and chalets that will warmly welcome you home, even if your favorite sport is après-ski.
The Lake Tahoe Chalet, South Lake Tahoe, CA: If you've been curious about forest bathing, here's your chance: This Tahoe cabin is surrounded by tall pines and mountains for a truly relaxing stay. When you're ready for something a little more active, ski resorts and casinos are just a short drive away.
Transylvania Log Cabin, Pesteana, Romania: Transylvania may have somewhat of a storied history, but you won't find anything that bites at this peaceful log cabin immersed in nature.
