A cabin in the woods: The phrase alone stirs the imagination. Who among us hasn’t wished — at least once — to just get away from it all?

Whether people are stressing in the suburbs or fighting the pressure of big-city living, there comes a point where everyone craves a weekend away. And while hotels, resorts or even the guest room in a relative’s home are all perfectly fine getaway options, nothing spells relief like a cabin in the woods … where email can’t find you and cell phone service rings up empty.

In honor of that common desire to commune with nature, we’ve combed Zillow listings and found a few spots where cabin fever would be worthwhile affliction to try and catch.

Pocket-Sized Retreat

1231 Crags Ln, Fawnskin CA
For sale: $129,000

First stop: Cozy. That’s exactly the way to describe this small cabin hidden in the San Bernadino National Forest. Built in 1964, the pine-planked home has only 576 square feet of living space, 1 bedroom and 1 bath. But what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in updated features, including a large deck, newer roof and carpet.

Seaside Berth

453 Point Caution Dr, Friday Harbor WA
For sale: $316,800

Weathered gray clapboard, white trim and views of the San Juan Islands just north of Seattle are packaged nicely in this Friday Harbor property. Although the home is described as a “fixer,” private beachfront access and an acre of land are likely to make this project more than worth the effort.

Rustic Homestead

339739 Ramsey Rd, Pine River MN
For sale: $174,900

How much space do you need need? Would 80 wooded acres be enough buffer between you and the rest of the world? Then step right up. This rustic log cabin has all that acreage to offer — almost one acre per square foot of living space. Clocking in 776 square, this 1-bedroom cabin offers an additional small loft area and wood stove for chilly Minnesota nights.

Mountain Lodge

2707 Misty Blue Mountain Dr, Sevierville, TN
For sale: $258,500

The best kinds of contradictions are at work in this Tennessee mountain home. A handcrafted log exterior is juxtaposed against walls of glass and a modern interior. This spanking-clean cabin is located in Sevierville within the Great Smoky Mountains, but it’s more than a typical mountain cabin. Included in the purchase price is access to a nearby luxury resort.

Gone Fishin’

130 Narrows Willow Creek Rd, Thayne WY
For sale: $690,000

Invite everyone along for a weekend of fishing at this 2,400-square-feet Wyoming cabin. Besides sitting in a prime and private location in Willow Creek Canyon, the home has a walk-out basement, hickory and stone floors, alder doors and two stone fireplaces.

Classic Cabin

59 Lakeview Ln, Greenwood ME
For sale: $259,000

Picture perfect, isn’t it? With its grassy lawn, lake access and screened porch, this Greenwood, ME cabin combines all the best elements of northern New England into one, five-acre parcel of paradise. Even in the cooler night air, cozy quarters of this 4-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom cabin are guaranteed with a wood-burning fireplace.
