You don’t have to be some kind of extreme outdoorsman to appreciate a badass cabin built somewhere out in the wilderness. And that’s why Zach Klein’s Tumblr, appropriately titled “Cabin Porn,” went viral this year. The tech CEO, widely known for co-founding Vimeo, started posting incredible photos of remote cabins and shelters from all over the world (including pics of his own cabin in upstate New York.) The popular Tumblr soon led to the production of a thick coffee table book, featuring more than 200 stunning user-submitted photos.

We currated our 20 favorite cabins from Cabin Porn, which wasn’t the easiest task considering they are all cool as hell.
