Cabin life blogs are few and far between. There are plenty of websites with descriptions of how to build a cabin, where to rent a cabin, and inspirational cabin photos; but there are few blogs that chronicle what real, daily cabin life is like.
Before we moved to our cabin, I scoured the internet for cabin resources. I was curious what living in a cabin year-round was really like. What could we expect in winter? What if we got cabin fever? What kind of gear did we need? Are cabins high-maintenance compared to regular homes? So many questions!
Thankfully, I found several helpful cabin life blogs that put my mind at ease. This list is a collection of the top 3 sites that I reference regularly. In order to help you pick the best one for you, I’ve also categorized each blog according to it’s primary focus (daily cabin life, off-grid cabin life, all things cabin lifestyle):
