Cozy Up in a Cabin or Cottage

Quick access to the outdoors is part of the appeal, of course. This week, we introduce you to a few of our favorite places to cuddle up.

A month from now, the epic waterfalls of the Shasta-Cascade region in Northern California will be gushing in spectacular fashion. That said, the cascades on the McCloud River —Lower, Middle and Upper—are mind-blowing at any time of year. They’re connected by a 1.5-mile-long trail that deserves leisure exploration. To give yourself time to wander (and take a selfie or three!), hole up at one of dozens of cabin retreats in and around Shasta Lake, the state’s biggest reservoir, and let serendipity be your guide. One of our winter favs just outside Redding are the four dog-friendly Silverthorn Resort cabins. more »
