Cozy Log Cabin in Aspen
We first stumbled upon this charming log home a few months ago, but we've been saving it for just the right moment -- i.e., the first time we had to scrape ice off our cars before heading to work. Now, we're officially ready to hole up in this cozy abode for the rest of the year.
Location: Aspen, Colo.

Let's start outside this adorable dwelling, where we find picture-perfect views of Aspen Mountain and the Roaring Fork River. If you ask us, the side deck with a sunken hot tub is the best place to take advantage of the scenery, though the Adirondack chairs out front are rather appealing as well. The adjacent Rio Grande Trail puts downtown Aspen within walking distance of the property.
Inside, the home is chock full of rustic goodness: rough-hewn log walls, wide-plank wood floors and stone fireplaces. The two-level retreat comes with three bedroom suites, a small-but-well-appointed kitchen and a living room with large windows framing the mountainous scenery.
