Obviously it’s tough knowing none of us will be going on vacation for a bit, but we can still daydream, right? The Agua Norte Cabin (@auganorteme on Instagram) has to make it on your bucket list. This 16’x’20’ spot sits just 4 miles from Grand Marias, Minnesota with absolutely breathtaking views of Lake Superior.

The owners of the cabin logged, sawed and treated the white pine lumber themselves, and it includes a magical loft bedroom with a giant skylight perfect for star-gazing. Did I mention this cabin has a sauna?

Tiny homes come in all shapes and sizes, but sometimes the best way to describe one is “cute.” This is a tiny and adorable cottage in the Asheville Forest.

Outside, you’ll notice a small rectangular home with light green clapboards. Two windows flank the tan front door that hides beneath a dormer on the front porch area. Off to the side of the home is a fenced-in deck for outdoor eating and relaxing. The house sits among the trees as a cozy retreat from the world.

When you go inside, you’ll find the quaint kitchen with open-face cabinets, a small stove with an oven and a full-sized microwave, fridge, and dishwasher. A small dinette sits in the middle of the hardwood floors. The living space includes two comfortable chairs for relaxing and the bathroom is fully equipped with a tub/shower, toilet, and washer and dryer. The master bedroom has the same beautiful hardwood floors and a large bed.

A bright blue sectional couch sits in the living room and the L-shaped kitchen lies in the opposite corner. It has open shelving for plates, dishes, and food as well as an oven, dishwasher, full fridge and freezer, and microwave.
