"The cabin is an icon. Think of the legendary mountain man Jeremiah Johnson building his own home in the Rocky Mountains, or the teams of lumberjacks that once shared a meal after a long day of work in the forests of Eastern Canada," said Digital Trends. "The log cabins built by those settling the Oregon Trail were the symbols of a life on the edge of the frontier, and as far back as the Viking age, the massive wooden structures were the centers of family and community life. Even today, cabins evoke a sense of comfort and freedom, representing a refuge from the stresses of modern life and serving as a symbol for shelter against the harsh elements of nature."

Who says that just because the word "cabin" is in the name that it has to be small? "Timber Moose, this enormous fortress-like cabin, is the largest privately owned cabin in the US. It features a swimming pool, massive kitchen and dining areas, a crow's nest, and enough room to accommodate you and 60 of your friends," said Digital Trends.
