Disconnect and recharge in the rolling hills of the Pennsylvania countryside with these downright charming cabins.

Pennsylvania is one of the northeast’s most underrated states, often overlooked in favor of destinations like New York or Vermont — but it’s got a lot going for it. In Pennsylvania, you’ll find exciting American history, record-breaking sports teams (and equally dedicated fans) and, of course, the town of Hershey, home to Hershey Chocolate. But one thing visitors often don’t realize is just how fabulous the less-developed parts of the state can be.

Go off the beaten path and see a whole different side to the Quaker State with one of the best Pennsylvania  from the list below, all of which are in more remote parts of the state. Although it doesn’t get the same level of hype as other American destinations, Pennsylvania’s natural beauty includes countless hiking trails and experiences through lush rolling hills, clear freshwater lakes, and unique state parks. And there’s even some pretty great skiing, too.

Without further ado, here are the best Pennsylvania cabin rentals if you’re looking for a little R&R.
