With rolling mountains, lush valleys, rushing rivers, and over 7,000 miles of ocean coastline, Virginia just might be the perfect state to rent a cabin for an epic, or relaxing, getaway.

Nature not your thing? Virginia’s wine country awaits with more than 200 wineries, making Virginia the fifth-largest wine-producing state in the country. They’re also taking advantage of the farm-to-table trend and have a booming food scene thanks to its plentiful farms, orchards, and dairies.

After you’ve had fun exploring, nothing beats having an excellent pad to come back to — preferably one with a hot tub, where you can rest your tired muscles. Luckily, all nine of these Virginia cabin rentals have you covered.

1. Massive Log Cabin

Why you should stay here: Billards, Foosball table, hot tub, floor-to-ceiling windows…why wouldn’t you stay here?

  • Sleeps: 14
  • Minimum Stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $371/night

This mammoth log cabin ticks a lot of boxes. It sits within Massanutten Resort, giving you easy access to the resort’s many amenities, no matter what season you visit. In the summer, take advantage of their water park and golf courses; in the winter, grab your skis and snowboard, or head inside to explore their escape rooms and VR lounge. 

But there’s no need to leave the cabin to have a great time. With 5,500 square feet of space and enough room for more than a dozen of your friends or family members, the property has everything you could need.

In the winter, two fireplaces will warm you up nicely, and the cozy furnishings are perfect for curling with a good book and a hot cup of tea. In the summer, take a stroll along the nearby stream or challenge your friends to a game of cornhole or basketball. And year-round, the hot tub makes the perfect conclusion to a long day.

Why you should stay here: Close to nature, but in comfort 

  • Sleeps: 8
  • Minimum Stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $249/night

This cabin is just a short drive away from George Washington National Forest and you’ll certainly feel tucked away in a forest of your own while staying here. The elevated cabin sits up on a ridge and the living space is filled with large, expansive windows, to let in all the fantastic views from every angle.

For even more expansive views, head out to the deck, where you’ll find a hot tub and plenty of seating for you and your guests. Many of the bedrooms offer forest views, too, putting you as close to nature as possible while still enjoying the comforts of a cozy bed.

When the sun goes down, check out the cabin’s game room, complete with an N64, Wii, Wii U, Xbox One, and an awesome N64 neon fixture on the wall. Is there anything better than spending the day hiking and then coming home to a round of Mario Kart?

Why you should stay here: The hosts make this place feel just like home.

  • Sleeps: 6
  • Minimum Stay: 2 nights 
  • Rates from: $290/night

Want to stay in a cabin and enjoy the classic cabin amenities, but don’t care for the look or feel of a traditional cabin, with their heavy use of wood and stone, and taxidermy on the walls? Then this modern and recently updated property has you covered.

Skyview River Retreat is a stylish, black three-level retreat with an interior that almost feels more Southwest than East Coast mountains. The bright white walls contrast nicely with the dark wooden beams crossing the ceiling and the warm wood accents scattered throughout. The cabin sits right on the Shenandoah River, too, and you can enjoy the waterfront views from the outdoor hot tub or fire pit. 

Plus, the hosts have given this property lots of homey touches, like a welcome book, guest journal, and coffee nook complete with a Kuerig, tea bags, creamers, and sweeteners. It’s small touches like these that really bring a cabin to life.

Why you should stay here: A cozy cabin with an epic barrel hot tub.

  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum Stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $183/night

The South River Falls Cabin is a cozy getaway that’s your quintessential cabin tucked away in the woods. Small and seemingly secluded, the property blends into the scenery rather than looming over the landscape as some newer properties do.

Nestled back in the trees and accessible via a gravel drive, the cabin combines a rustic ambiance with modern touches, with rooms that feel fresh and new, while holding a quaint and woodsy charm – a perfect example of this is the gorgeous walk-in shower, which looks brand new, but has wooden walls, giving it that in-the-woods vibe. Outside on the deck, you’ll be greeted by a massive hot tub overlooking the forest…does it get any better than that?

Even though the cabin feels remote, you’ll be just a 10-minute drive from Shenandoah National Park.

Inside, the cabin is contemporary and sleek, with lots of modern touches, like brand-new appliances and glass doors, that make this option anything but average.

Why you should stay here: The luxuries of a spa, all packed into a cabin!

  • Sleeps: 15
  • Minimum Stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $248/night  

Planning a ski getaway for the holidays or a mountain retreat during the summer? This chalet on Bryce Mountain can fit the entire family. You’re just steps away from the ski runs and, when you’re not hitting the slopes, you’ll be able to take advantage of a range of winter-ready amenities, such as a large stone fireplace in the living room, an on-site sauna, and a hot tub that offers up stunning mountain views from the deck.

During the warmer months you’re just steps away from hiking, mountain biking trails, renting a canoe at the nearby Lake Laura, or sitting out on the cabin’s massive deck overlooking the mountains.

Why you should stay here: Fun amenities in a chic space.

  • Sleeps: 5
  • Minimum Stay: 4 nights
  • Rates from: $232/night  

The Whispering Woods Cabin is not your average cabin, and for the nightly rates, you’re getting a steal.

This contemporary property greets guests as soon as they arrive with a bright, cheery, and inviting exterior, plus a large fire ring just steps away, lit up by hanging camp lights that crisscross the property. Inside, a cozy and almost colonial-style decor awaits.

Need to get a little work done? An office space gives you a convenient spot to quickly check some emails. The small kitchen is great for one or two cooks (because you never want too many cooks in the kitchen, right?), but why cook indoors when you can grill outside while your friends or family mingle in the adjacent picnic tables and hammock?

There is, of course, also, the huge stone fireplace and a hot tub on the back deck, but one of this cabin’s coolest features is the theater on the covered porch, for outdoor moving screenings no matter the weather.

This budget-friendly chalet in Shenandoah has everything you need to get your hygge on in style. Not familiar with the hygge concept? The popular aesthetic borrowed from the Danish essentially focuses on all things cozy and comfortable. 

The clean and airy interior incorporates plush couches and other furnishings that invite you to snuggle up next to the wood-burning stove, the hot tub beckons you and your friends for a little relaxation, and the bright and cheery kitchen is just the spot for baking a fresh batch of cookies or even just a cup of hot cocoa. 

For the outdoorsy, all the rivers and mountains of Shenandoah are just steps away, and for the homebodies, the property has its own movie shed, complete with a projector, leather couch, and bean bag chair.

The main house offers a high-end, yet traditional cabin feel, with everything you need for a comfortable stay, including multiple fireplaces, a hot tub, a game room, and a jacuzzi tub. A separate lakeside pavilion is outfitted with its own bathroom (because who wants to get out of the water and trek back to the main house when they’ve gotta go?), a kitchen, sound system, and fireplace, plus a few kayaks and canoes.

If you’re looking for a blend of luxury and privacy, you’ve found it here.
