Alaska’s Design-Centric Cottages & Cabins Where You Can Spend Your Next Vacation

Hello Alaska! A familiar image linked to Alaskan accommodations is a log cabin more rustic than haute. Say hello to these cute, design-oriented cabins and cottages that flip this stereotype on its head, in favor of materials such as steel, glass and wood—paired with clean, minimalist lines, of course.
