Sometimes the holiday spirit comes to you, but sometimes, you gotta head out of dodge to really get that chestnuts-roasting-on-an-open-fire vibe. After all, is there anything more seasonally delightful than ugly sweaters and a toasty fireplace? You bring the sweater (and the presents and New Year's Eve party blowers) and these rentals—that are somehow still available as of publication—will bring alllll the winter coziness you can imagine, fireplace included.

The 14 Best Places to Travel in November

1. Timber Topper Log Cabin (Broken Bow, Oklahoma)

  • Sleeps: 2 (1 bed, 1 bath)
  • Getting There: 3 hours from Dallas

Hey, just because we want a cozy fireplace to open gifts in front of doesn't mean we also wouldn't love a waterfall shower, hot tub and stainless steel appliances! So, if you're after a secluded, woodsy atmosphere with starry night skies and proximity to hiking trails, but you also care about thread count, this open-style abode in southeastern Oklahoma is a fabulous option (ya know, for when you want options).

2. Clear Lake Cabin (Wasagaming, Manitoba, Canada)

  • Sleeps: 5 (2 bedrooms, 3 beds; 1 bathroom)
  • Getting There: 3 hours from Winnipeg

This ultra-modern dwelling is walking distance to the quaint tourist town of Wasagaming, but you could always just stay put since the property since it has all you need for the coziest—and chicest—holiday getaway. We're talking a private hot tub, abundant deck with a fire pit to gather 'round and roast s'mores (of course...that is, if you can brave the cold) and a barbecue. And for the snow bunnies who love themselves some cold-weather activities, make sure to check out snowshoeing, skiing or even ice fishing on Clear Lake. Don't fret, Santa travels to Canada, people.

3. Cranberry Ridge (Glen Arbor, Michigan)

  • Sleeps: 4 (2 bedrooms, 2 beds; 1 bath)
  • Getting There: 4 hours and 20 minutes from Detroit

An easy walk to downtown Glen Arbor and the Heritage Trail and two miles from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, this new construction is the best of both worlds: a quaint wilderness escape not too far from the rest of civilization. Along with your holiday cheer, make sure to pack your snow suits for all the winter activities on the dunes—from guided snow shoe hikes to tubing the hills. Psst: Also pack some hand warmers.

4. The Treehouse at Cataloochee (Maggie Valley, North Carolina)

  • Sleeps: 4 (2 bedrooms, 2 beds; 3 full bathrooms)
  • Getting There: 45 minutes from Asheville (note: cars must have four-wheel drive)

Originally built as a treehouse for children in the area, this mountain retreat has since been restored into a Smoky Mountain eco-getaway replete with magical touches like a claw-foot bath and brand-new hot tub accessible via a swinging rope bridge. Open presents or ring in the New Year gathered around the wood-burning fireplace, then put on your coziest sweater, step outside on the deck and look up—there's nothing quite like a star-filled night.

5. Green Acres on Whiting Hollow Lake (Stamford, New York)

  • Sleeps: 6 (3 bedrooms, 7 beds; 2 bathrooms, 1 full, 1 half)
  • Getting There: 2.5 hours from NYC (note: four-wheel drive is probably necessary)

A rustic Catskills escape with modern, designer touches, a holiday escape to this cabin means access to skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, snowmobiling and ice fishing followed by hot cocoa and warming up next to the fireplace. Quiet and secluded, but a stone's throw (OK, within 30 minutes) from multiple ski resorts and state parks, spending Christmas here will give you all the hygge you need for the rest of the year.
