No matter where you live or how many places you've traveled to, there's always something special about a cabin getaway. There's no shortage of incredible cabins in the United States, but when you expand your search to include the rest of the world as well, you're even more spoiled for choice. Places like the Alps and Finland are overflowing with traditionally cozy log cabins and chalets, but if you're looking for something more unique, consider staying in a sphere suspended in the Canadian wilderness or a contemporary Norwegian cube cabin with walls made entirely of glass.
