8 Best Fall Cabin Destinations With Fireplaces
Nothing beats spectacular mountain scenery when fall is coming. In Jackson Hole, you’ll have the combination of incredible views of the Teton Range from a cabin like this one, fewer tourists, and brilliant fall colors. Hike on the trails in Grand Teton National Park during the day, and warm up in your cozy cabin in the evening. You might even get to see the first snow - it’s not uncommon to wake up to a dusting in October. Don’t miss having a cocktail at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar where you get to sit on saddles at the bar, and looking for elk at the National Elk Refuge - they start their migration in the fall. If you’re feeling restless, drive up to Yellowstone National Park to see the geysers, which are particularly spectacular as the weather cools down.
Beautiful mountain lakes in the northern forests of Idaho’s panhandle are a beautiful sight in the fall. This cabin on the lake is a perfect place for a getaway trip. You can wake up and look out at the calm water. Rent a canoe and take it out on the water, or bring a book, take a blanket from the house, and sit in one of the lounge chairs on the dock in the fall sun. Watch the sunset by the wood-burning fireplace, or cook the fish that you caught in the lake on the gas grill outside. Don’t leave Coeur D’Alene without trying a beer at Crafted Tap House & Kitchen or the brisket at Drummin Up BBQ.
