As the sun sets later and the days get warmer, we start to dream of long weekends spent away from the hustle and bustle at our "ideal cabin". To inspire your own weekend getaway fantasies, we've put together a few of our favorite A-frames, off-grid cabins, and isolated retreats. And check out our Pinterest board for more inspiring spaces!
Maine-based design firm GO Logic designed this summer house on the rocky island coast of Vinalhaven, Maine. The home comprises of three cabins (two are bedrooms and one is the central living space) linked by a terraced deck. Photos via GO Logic.
This tiny off-the-grid home is another Maine island residence. Designed and built by the owner's daughter Alex Porter, it is entirely self-sufficient.
This remodeled shingled A-frame on Fire Island is the perfect size for a weekend getaway. You can't beat being so close to a sandy beach and having a wooden walkways as the path to your front door. And don't forget the outdoor shower! Photos by Kate Sears via Remodelista.
This private residence designed by Kolman x Boye in Vega, Norway is rather "internet famous". It has been shared countless times on Tumblrs, blogs, Instagram, etc. but it's still one of our favorites because of how the structure nestles perfectly into the unique natural landscape.

Architect Jim Olson's property Longbranch in Washington's Puget Sound. Jim began building the home when he was 18, starting with a simple 200 square foot bunkhouse. Since then he's added on to the original structure. Photos via Olson Kundig.
