← Back to ‘How to Choose the Best Places to Stay When Traveling’

Perhaps the most defining characteristic of a hipster is the reluctance to call oneself a hipster — it’s an odd dance of self-identity. We like hipster things — from discounted clothing to artisanal foods, longshot political candidates, and that one band’s first album — but by no means are we hipsters. Welp, we’ve got news for you: if you happen to enjoy the great outdoors and the sensibilities of getting snuggly in a woody log cabin, you’re a hipster. The people have spoken. Pack your crochet kit and your plant-based protein, because you’re headed to one of the best hipster cabins in Oregon.

Fisherman’s Paradise

Fisherman’s Paradise located just outside Hebo is the perfect retreat for an entire family. For the millennials who already have three jean-jacket-clad kids in tow, we recommend B-lining it for this spot alongside the Nestucca River. Known colloquially as the ‘salmon superhighway,’ this is a great place to break out the fishing poles and try to catch the dinner feast. If you come up short, Fisherman’s Paradise is still equipped with a ping pong table, a pool table, a wide-open living room area, and tons of outdoor green spaces to frolic about.

Peaceful Cabin in Port Orford

With bamboo wooden floors, large sunny windows, a wood stove, a comfy eco bath, and a large desk to do some nature writing, this is the perfect place to escape into the woods. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted with a bouquet of flowers, a stocked kitchen, strong coffee, and everything else you could need to hide away for a while. We highly recommend visiting in the springtime when the flowers are blooming. Port Orford is in southern Oregon, just about 60 miles from the California border.

Rustic Creekside Cabin

If the hipster in you needs to still be within arm’s reach of record stores and chic cafes, opt for this rustic cabin just minutes outside of Portland, Oregon (and not too far from 10 Great Things to do in Boring, Oregon). You’ll still be right next to a babbling brook and surrounded by cedar trees, so it’ll still feel like a long-lost escape into the mountains. Inside this creekside cabin, you’ll find one bedroom, a full kitchen, a wood stove, and a small comfy living room. As far as log cabins go, this one makes for a great romantic retreat. If you’re eager to sample local beers and step back in time, the Drunk History of Portland tour is a must-do.

Teeny Cabin Near the Coast

If you’re the kind of hipster keen on the vintage aesthetic, check out this tiny cabin near the Pacific Ocean. The cabin was built back in 1934 when it was surrounded by nothing but dense timber. Today it isn’t much different, but the wooded haven is now equipped with WiFi, a full kitchen, and a shower. Reviews rave how host Tanya has nailed the hippy-in-the-woods vibe. Even though it looks pretty small from the outside, there are actually two bedrooms. Feel free to make this a couple’s retreat!

Hidden Little Creekside Cabin

Undoubtedly the best things about the Pacific Northwest are the national forests and the mind-bogglingly lush scenery. The only potential problem with this little creekside cabin is being able to locate it after your morning walk. It’s so shrouded in foliage that it’s tough to see. Just south of Medford in Southern Oregon, this spot is surrounded by great hiking trails (discover the 7 Most Beautiful Hikes in Oregon), mountain biking trails, and the Wagner Creek. The town of Talent is fairly close by, which is a funky little town filled with antique stores, outdoor farmers markets, and bookstores.

Fern Cabin

Who ever said a log cabin needs to be located in the woods? If you’re looking for a great cabin rental, you can find one within the boundaries of Portland. To be clear — this place is plush, and it’s a far cry from your traditional cabin vacation rental. Onsite you’ll find a private patio, a jacuzzi, a full kitchen setup, and enough wooden charm to make you feel like you’re light years away. The Fern Cabin also comes equipped with heating and air conditioning, so feel free to visit any time of the year. While in town, the Aerial Tram and Rooftop tour provides sweeping views of the city from a bird’s eye perspective.

Charming Homestead Cabin near Mt. Hood

The Mount Hood National Forest is arguably Oregon’s most prized natural gem. The towering active stratovolcano is a force and a sight to be reckoned with as it looms over the surrounding Willamette River Valley. Near the foot of Mt. Hood you’ll find this charming homestead cabin, which is probably the most rustic option on this list. The cabin’s exterior has that kind of sun-drenched fade, and the structure itself has a kind of slight slant that proves it’s been around for longer than your grandfather has. Around the perimeter, you’ll find chickens, horses, and jaw-dropping views of the snow-capped Mt. Hood. It’s pricier than the other options, but it’s well worth the frontier experience.
