If you’re feeling the tension of city life then sneaking away to a remote and cozy cabin sounds like a perfect getaway. While some of our favorite locations tend to close up for the season, there’s still a ton of picturesque cabins that stay open through the fall to give us that ultimate retreat away from it all. If you’re looking to treat yourself to one last vacation before Halloween, then planning a trip to one of these 9 locations may be exactly what you were looking for.

4. Big Basin Tent Cabins: Boulder Creek
Big Basin has tent cabins, which are basically a cabin with a tent roof. The wonderful thing about these cabins is that they are in the middle of the redwoods; your cabin is in a small clearing in the middle of giant redwoods.

8. Yosemite Park
Lodging options in Yosemite National Park range from simple tent cabins at the High Sierra Camps to more upscale if desired. This is a very popular place to rent a cabin, so you need to plan many months in advance.
9. Steep Ravine Cabins: Mt. Tamalpais
These cabins are in a gorgeous part of Mt. Tam, and are bare bones, but they are the Bay Area’s least-expensive way cabin. Also, as a bonus you have insanely amazing ocean views.
