For those of us who one day dream of having our own cabin, or others who find comfort in pics of cozy hideaways set against the background of an alpine forest, inspiration abounds in the time-vortex that is Instagram. You may already be following well-known accounts like @cabinlove or @aframedaily—unsurprisingly there are countless more demanding your attention—so we sifted through our feeds to specifically select our favorite, and often lesser known, purveyors of cottagecore cabinporn.
From accounts devoted to individual cabins and their builds, to aggregators who have amassed huge followings for their striking cabin shots, here are our top picks for the best cabin instagram accounts to follow right now—and daydream over later.
Best Individual Cabin Instagram Accounts
Vibe: Freshly Falling Snow
With a feed filled with cool tones and peaceful interior moments, there's little doubt you'll be itching to book the Nooq near Whitefish, Montana. Follow for design inspo, quick vids, and BTS of the perils of home-ownership in Montana's Rocky Mountains. And if the photography feels familiar, that's because this property is (silently) owned and operated by famed adventure photographer Alex Strohl. Fun Fact, eh?
Vibe: An A-Frame Education
After visiting and studying A-Frames around the globe, this architect/writer couple are beginning to build their own A-Frame house with a stunning mountain view in Japan's Yamagata prefecture. Follow along for some incredible in-progress shots and tap.tap.tap. through their highlights for re-caps of past visits to other epic A-Frames throughout the country.
Vibe: Desert Oasis
Located in the Californian desert, this renovated 1935 adobe abode has a lot to take in. From the icy blue 50ft lap pool, custom built wood and glass sauna, and that fire pit, to the in-progress outdoor kitchen and patio, and tasteful contemporary ranch interior, this private house has something for everyone to tuck into the One Day part of their brain. Scroll down a ways for the original state of the house and subsequent reno shots—they grow up so soon! (Bummer Alert, this home is not for rent, just for dreaming about.)
Vibe: So Fresh, So Clean
If contemporary design is your thing, and dust is not, give this pristine cabin account a follow. Outside of Oslo, Norway, this spotless cabin is full of impressive details, both large and small—from its interior decor to the all-in-one fireplace/daybed/kitchen cabinet console.
Although not techincally a cabin account, and technically a fan account for the legendary architect and woodworker George Nakashima (RIP), the feed serves up enough serene natural vibes that we let it slide. Follow for pics of stunning past projects, close-ups of buttery wood, and features of his daughter Mira, who now runs the Pennsylvania estate.
Vibe: PNW at its Best
This single account for three dog-friendly rental cabins in Northern Washington State is one of the better curated accounts we've seen a private Airbnb host put together. From warm and cozy interiors to snapshots of fun in the surroudning forest, each image on this account exudes PNW flavor—and not in a cliché way. It's no surprise the operation is put on by the owners of Seattle design boutique Glasswing.
Vibe: The World through Salmon-Colored Glasses
This 1959 decommissioned USFS fire lookout tower in remote Idaho makes for some great pics, inside and out. Guests in this fire tower Airbnb enjoying their stay, their fearless pets lounging high above the ground, pics of the light-flooded interior, Idaho snow and forest—its all there in this feel-good feed.
