Log Cabin - Camp Petosega (Photo credit: Odalaigh)This coming winter I want to get away for a weekend of skiing and snowshoeing, and as I was looking through various places to stay, I started noticing a strong trend. All the lodges and houses that were available to stay in are log cabins. I was curious about why this is the way it is, so I did some research and found a little bit more about log cabins.
Log siding cabins have been built for thousands of years all throughout Europe. That became a common style throughout the United States, as European settlers brought over their methods of building homes with the only material that was readily available to them; trees. When built correctly, log cabins can be very warm and comfortable throughout the winter, and can include windows, fireplaces and stoves.
Today, log cabins are still very popular, as they blend in very well with their surrounding environment and offer a great look both inside and outside. I hope to enjoy my winter trip in a log cabin soon, I suggest you look into doing something similar as well!
