Friday Cabins #22: Cabins in Unexpected Places
Arkansas, South Dakota, Ohio... if you don't know, now you know
Live, from New York, it’s Friday Afternoon! We did it again, folks. The sun is shining, the sky is blue, and we’re here for another Friday Cabins. Brought to you by Cabins Etc, this here newsletter is a round-up of some of our fave cabin-related content from the pages of Field Mag, the go-to source for all things outdoors/design.
Today, we explore the oft-underrated states of the US. We don’t know about you, but most of the time as nature enthusiasts, our focus is on the coastal beauty of the PNW, the vast terrain of Cali, or the metropolis-heavy, outdoors adjacent East Coast. But in between all that are some seriously striking landscapes that we tend to (admittedly) often overlook. But not today!
In our search for the best rental cabins across the US and beyond, some unexpected places have delivered some seriously cool spaces and if you're not already in the know, we’re here to share.

Home to the truly astounding Black Hills National Forest (and the otherworldly Badlands National Park), South Dakota boasts impressive terrain for days. And tucked amongst all those towering Aspens and Pondera Pines, canyons, lakes, and billion-year-old granite mountain peaks, are 17 contemporary cabins and rustic cottages to explore it all from.
If South Dakota isn’t on your radar, switch that up. We just spent a long weekend hiking, camping, dino fossil hunting, and hot springs-ing in the SW corner of the state and no joke, it’s epic. Like Joshua Tree meets Lake Tahoe meets Nebraska.
Ohio's unique geographical positioning and history make this state an oft underrated destination for outdoor enthusiasts and tourists alike. With the three major cities of Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland spread across the state, there are restaurants, shopping, and breweries aplenty, all set amongst four major recreational areas-Appalachian country, Amish country, Lake Erie, and the Hocking Hills. Here, the 16 best cabins throughout it all.
Overlooked by many a coastal state dweller, Arkansas is home to plenty of scenic lakes, rivers, hot springs, and mountainous terrain to explore. Little Rock, Fayetteville, and Bentonville offer up tastes of Southern cuisine, while the Ozark and Ouachita Mountains are popular spots for hiking, backpacking, and mountain biking. Here are the 9 best cabin rentals to call home for a long Arkansas weekend.
Thanks all for now. Have a good weekend ya’ll :)
