It’s the first weekend of summer and ’tis the season to head to the woods and commune with Mother Nature.

Fish on the lake, take a hike through the forest, start a bonfire, jump over the bonfire, ice your burned foot near the bonfire — these are all activities that define the summer.

But to true outdoors-people, a cabin isn’t just a symbol of summer. Some folks out there are so dedicated to rustic-chic that they can enjoy a cabin at any time of the year. To celebrate the versatility and pastoral beauty of the cabin, we chose some of our favorite images from the appropriately titled cabinporn.com (don’t worry, it’s SFW)!

little red tree house

Although the shape may look like many cabins, there’s nothing ordinary about the color of this cabin in Lapland, Sweden. The owners clearly aren’t too worried about camouflaging in the woods. Photo via CabinPorn.
