Rustic living, or “cabin living” is a way of life for many people. Whether it is a weekend getaway at a nearby cottage, a backwoods cabin retreat, or a permanent living arrangement, the rustic lifestyle is much different from city or suburban life. There are different challenges with houses that are out-of-the-way, including issues with water, power, TV, etc., but also many advantages, for instance, peace and quiet.

Cabin Gifts: 2021 Fun, Toys, Tech
What is a cabin for, if not for enjoying yourself with friends and family? We put together one section for everything that we consider fun, including games and techy-fun stuff. Being in a rustic setting is perfect for getting away from the trappings of every day life, and the ridiculous attachment we have to our mobile phones. How about a list of the best board games or a list of some nostalgic toys from our childhood that they still make? We put together a list of activities that specifically don’t involve any technology, but also have ideas on techy fun stuff like the best turntable to play that vinyl that is making a comeback, and a list of great tabletop radios that you can place in any room.
Find cool toys and games, home electronics, and other fun stuff in our Fun, Toys, Tech area.
Outdoor Gear: 2021 Hunting, Camping, Fishing
Being outdoors is one of the great things to having a rustic home. Whether it is hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, or just managing the woods, it is so restorative to get out in nature. Just like anything else, however, it takes preparation and planning to fully enjoy the outdoors, and we have put together a collection of resources to maximize the enjoyment. Need some ideas for how to manage your woods, or checklists for your next bow hunting trip or ideas for gear for your next gun hunting trip? Perhaps you want suggestions on camping gear, or even want to figure out how to properly feed deer and other wildlife around your property.

Rustic Decor: 2021 Decór
Cabin culture allows for a more relaxed way to design and furnish a home, most often referred to as “rustic,” “country,” “rural,” or even “craftsman” style.

Our rustic furniture / rustic decór section is all about inspirations. From ideas for rustic bedrooms, to rustic bathrooms, rustic accent ideas, to campy cabin gift ideas, and everywhere in between, we have suggestions for your overall rustic design plan.
