Dream of waking up to the sounds and smells of the countryside? Birds chirping, fresh air, views of the lake – could it get any better? Well, this adorable A-frame cabin happens to offer all this – and more.
The brightly painted home sits on a shared 5-acre compound near Brandenburg Lake in Ingleside, Illinois, and it’s available for rent on Airbnb. Its bright red color catches your eye from the get-go, but inside, it’s so welcoming and cozy, you’ll want to book a stay ASAP.
The open floor plan home has a large ‘great room’ with lots of space for family and friends to gather.
Although the home’s furnishings aren’t brand new, the mismatched decor and hodgepodge of furniture give the cabin a super homey and charming feel. The living room boasts a sofa, two comfy armchairs, a piano, and a large fireplace that is the centerpiece and focal point of the home.
A dining nook is tucked away in the corner near a separate lounge and TV area.
Enjoy meals with the family around the wood dining table for six. There is also a breakfast bar that can be seen to the left, which looks into the kitchen (out of frame). After a filling dinner, relax with your favorite show in the “entertainment area.”
The kitchen is simple and modest but has all the amenities from home.
The fully-functional kitchen has a very ‘log cabin’ feel with all of the rich wood. There is plenty of counter space for prepping meals, and there is also a full-size oven and stove, double-basin sink, and stainless steel refrigerator.
The coziness continues into the master suite.
Curl up after a long day of recreational activities on the private lake in this warm and welcoming queen-size bedroom. Decor is limited, as the warm wood walls and floors speak for themselves. The room is tied together with a large colorful rug.
The en-suite bathroom is the perfect place to soak away all of your stresses.
The generously-sized bathroom has a large vanity and soaking tub. A large window lets in plenty of natural light, so you can relax with a nice book while you take a soak.
Upstairs is the A-frame’s sleeping loft that can sleep up to 4 guests.
Head upstairs to reach the sleeping loft with vaulted ceilings. Plush rugs add warmth to the rustic space, not to mention, the heat from the fireplace will keep this loft nice and warm during those cold winter months.
Also upstairs is the loft’s half bathroom.
If guests need to use the restroom in the middle of the night, they don’t have to make their way down the stairs in the dark. A half-bath offers guests the basics – a toilet, sink, and a small shelf for toiletries.
Out the back door, you’ll find the cabin’s expansive wood deck.
Dine al fresco on one of the two outdoor tables on the large deck. Imagine nights of great conversation while enjoying a nice glass of wine, watching the sunset. Absolutely dreamy!
The best part about this gem of a property? It’s only $145 a night. The Airbnb listing has all the information you need to book your next getaway.
