I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve gone on to Airbnb and searched for “cabins near Vancouver”. There’s just something about staying in a wooden shelter with a fireplace, blankets, a board game or a good book. Tell me I’m not the only one? I’ve hiked around the cute cabins on Cypress Mountain and will soon be staying in this super cute cabin on Bowen Island. The list of cabins in BC that I want to stay in is endless, honestly, I think we’ve got some of the cutest cabins in Canada. I’ve done my research when it comes to log cabins around Vancouver, cottages and A-frames near Vancouver, BC and here’s my pick of the best cabin rentals in BC.
