Synonymous with simplicity and good design, A-frame homes have always meant “vacation” in modern America. While the basic architecture has been around for thousands of years, A-frame cabins spiked in popularity after World War II, when Americans with disposable income began eyeing their neighbors’ stylish, “modern” second homes. Plus, A-frames are incredibly easy and cost-efficient to build, even today, making them a perennial cabin rental favorite.

A-frame rentals remain wildly popular among all kinds of vacationers: families, “glampers,” bird-watchers in search of a little peace and quiet. Feed your A-frame obsession with these eight striking cabin rentals.
