15 Romantic Cabin Getaways in the U.S. for Your Next Couples Trip

Cozy lodgings guaranteed to spark love.

Romance is rather subjective. What appeals to some pairs certainly won't entice others. But then again, there are some things that most people would agree just feel intimate and, well, couple-y. A getaway at a cozy cabin in the woods or by a sparkling lake definitely falls into that category. It's the perfect place to sneak away for some peace, quiet, and canoodling.

For couples wanting alone time, a stand-alone cabin is a pretty tempting option. You can hike, play board games, and, in some cases, order room service (many of these private accommodations sit on resorts with tons of amenities). Maybe you light a fire and snuggle up under a blanket, or perhaps the weather calls for chilled wine on the porch. Either way, these romantic cabin getaways in the U.S. are sure to stoke the flames of romance.
