If you’re looking for a romantic cabin somewhere in the mountains for a getaway (even if it’s just a weekend), we totally get it. After months of being stuck at home amid the pandemic, we’re all going a little stir-crazy. Between trying to keep the kids entertained 24/7 (or worse, trying to homeschool them), sitting on endless Zoom calls, and spending 98% of your time within the four walls of your living room, we totally understand if you’ve found yourself dreaming of a romantic getaway more than usual this year (because same).

Fortunately, a quick (and safe) weekend escape is totally possible, even in the current conditions, thanks to rental services like Getaway, Airbnb, and Vrbo. If you’re searching for the perfect romantic getaway in the mountains (sans kids, of course), we’ve rounded up 21 of the coziest, dreamiest cabins you can rent right now, all the way from the breathtaking slopes of Northern California to the stunning ridges of the Great Smoky Mountains. One look at the following list and you’ll have total cabin fever (the good kind!).

Please note that the prices per night are subject to change (the ones we’ve listed here are accurate at the time of publication), and that each location has specific COVID-19 protocols and safety measures in place.
