Belgium is vast, from the unspoilt forests of the Ardennes to a sweeping coastal plain extending out into the North Sea - there are plenty of places to go for a getaway. But to accompany these adventures, tucked within the gorgeous landscape, are cosy cabins in Belgium that would make for a perfect weekend hideaway. Whether you want a no-frills classic cabin in the woods or a bit more unique and quirky cabin, we’ve rounded up our favourite cosy cabins in Belgium for you to choose from.
Have your pick between eco-conscious nature oasis like Slow Cabins or even fun designs like a transparent bubble dome! Each one of them has its own characteristics, which makes for a fun way to explore Belgium’s own backyard. Curious? Follow me on Instagram and YouTube for more adventures!
Just because you’re in the middle of the remote wilderness, doesn’t mean your stay can’t be chic and stylish. At the Abarolodge, situated in Hannut, you can book this holiday home cabin that’s built out of wood - but looks like it can also belong in the glossy pages of Architectural Digest. What made us absolutely fall in love with Abarolodge is just the sheer amount of space you would get for a cabin.
While some cabins tend to be snug for comfort, the Abarolodge is subtly expansive with 2 bedrooms (great for kids or groups of friends), a bathroom, a kitchen and even a living room - all within this cabin. Everything is designed with an admiration for the Scandinavian sleek style - minimalism done right so you can have the utmost space. This cosy cabin in Belgium has plenty of natural light since the living room is accessible with glass doors. But step right outside, and you can lounge on the terrace set, gaze up at the stars, or sit back for a calm dinner in the tranquil atmosphere.
Bonus: bedding and linens are all provided, fresh with every check-in!

2. Slow Cabins
Looking for a romantic getaway with your significant other? Or maybe just a solo weekend to unwind? Slow Cabins is not just a stay in an oasis of a magical minimalistic cabin, but a way to immerse yourself in the beauty of Belgian nature and hinterlands. Here, you’re folded into a mysterious part of the country - since the concept behind Slow Cabins is that you can request which possible region of Belgium you would want to stay in… But you won’t know the exact location until two weeks before your stay! It’s part of the off-grid experience, as each location that Slow Cabins are located in their thoughtfully handpicked lands is meant to absorb you into a spectacle of nature.
Sounds intriguing? That’s only half of it! Slow Cabins itself are wooden abodes designed with the utmost consideration to the environment and your surroundings. After all, the appreciation and love the Slow Cabins has for our planet is its own foundation - from ecologically designed and produced amenities, like how rainwater is used for showering and dishes, to the solar panels plugged in on its rooftops. Everything is crafted with minimum environmental impact in mind. Our team of editors love that with every stay in its cosy cabins in Belgium, Slow Cabins plant a tree. Yep - one booking means one new tree planted by Slow Cabins for their goal of net green added value!

4. Helshovens Wijnvat
My partner and I absolutely loved staying in this circular wooden-type cabin, which reminded us of a wine barrel. Ok, a really, really, gigantic wine barrel. I mean, you kind of see it, right? That’s part of the cute charm, especially when we checked in and opened a bottle of wine to begin our weekend away. At Helshovens Wijnvat, the intimate space of the cabin is perfect for a solo guest or for two on a romantic getaway.
You won’t be completely alone during this stay, though - since the lush meadow beside your wine barrel cabin has sheep, donkeys, ponies and goats roaming around.
