We can't get enough of these cabin quotes!

A cabin can also be called a log house, cottage, hut, home or shelter. It is a small wooden shelter in a wild or remote area, away from the city, and often amongst a mountain, greenery or other nature.

A cabin getaway is a whole lot better experience than the more common lodge tours and trips, as cabins are comparatively smaller dwellings built from logs of wood. They are made with simple tools  and without the aid of professionals, for the sole purpose of providing shelter. This means that they are  a home built around nature, aiming to experience it at its best.

Cabin fever is a term commonly associated with cabin homes. It refers to a feeling of irritation and restlessness, experienced when one is stuck in a cabin-like space, in an isolated place. But we like to embrace this feeling of isolation from time to time. A cabin provides the perfect home or holiday destination for those looking to escape the stresses of everyday life, and can be a really positive place to spend time. So, forget cabin fever, quotes about cabins will embrace the cosiness and isolation that these cute little homes provide.

Let’s take a look at some of the best cabin quotes for the adventurer in you. With quotes from Ernest Hemingway, Jennifer Faye, Dr Seuss and more, there are cabin quotes to suit everyone here. You can also check out these [nature quotes] and [camping quotes] as well.
