With its extensive wilderness areas and outdoor recreation possibilities, you
can find vacation cabins in Alabama located in numerous places across the state.
Whether you go to the mountains for hiking,
the lakes and rivers for fishing,
or the beautiful southern beaches,
you should be able to find Alabama cabin rentals to suit anyone's interests
and budget. Most of the Alabama cabins are rustic, many are even log cabins.
A few vacation cabins in Alabama sleep only two people, but you can find many accommodate four, six, or more. This makes them an excellent alternative to cheap hotels, and they are ideal for family and small group Alabama vacations. Even those Alabama cabins that sleep as many as twelve people rarely rent for more than $300 per week.
You will need to be self-sufficient to some degree, purchasing your own groceries and doing your own cooking and cleaning. However, vacation cabins in Alabama generally come equipped with the basics, such as bed linens and dishes, for catering your stay. Additionally, you'll find that most of the vacation cabins in Alabama also have amenities such as outdoor cooking facilities, fireplaces, hot tubs, and televisions. Many are pet friendly; some are handicap accessible; virtually none of them will allow smoking indoors. Since you're out in the wilderness, you will probably have to rely on car rentals for transportation or arrive in your own vehicle.
Alabama's network of state parks offers something for visitors who want to get away from it all across the state. Alabama State Parks cabins (also called cottages) can be found in twelve different parks, ranging from the Gulf Shores State Park on the beaches of the south to Oak Mountain State Park in the center near Birmingham and Monte Sano State Park in the far north near Hunstville. There are only a limited number of Alabama State Parks Cabins available in each of the twelve locations, so if you want to stay actually inside the parks themselves, you'll need to make your reservations fairly far in advance. But even if you miss out on availability inside the parks, there are many Alabama State Parks cabins surrounding the boundaries of virtually all the parks.
Far in the northeast of the state in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains,
near DeSoto State Park and DeSoto Caverns, is the little community of Mentone
where you will find numerous privately owned Alabama cabins around Lookout Mountain.
You'll find numerous Alabama cabin rentals around Cheaha State Park, also in
the northeast. This is the southernmost end of the Blue Ridge Mountains range,
and the state park surrounds Mount Cheaha, the highest point in the state. One
of the benefits of staying in this area is its proximity to the Talladega
Speedway, one of the state's premier attractions.
You can stay is the pristine wilderness, but still can sneak out for an exciting
day at the NASCAR races.
In the far south of the state, in the community of Gulf Shores, you'll find Alabama cabin rentals right inside Gulf State Park. Some will be in pockets of forest, and some on the water with fishing piers. All of them are within walking distance of the beaches. If you stay here, you are near all the attractions of the coast, as well as the city of Mobile. In the center of the state, very close to Birmingham, is Oak Mountain, the state's largest park. Here are almost 10,000 acres of pristine wilderness, and the guests at the few Alabama cabins in the park have exclusive access to beautiful Lake Tranquility.
With more than 300 golf courses all across the state, including the eleven course of the legendary Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, you will find access to golfing venues near most any vacation cabins in Alabama you choose to stay in.
