Whether you live in Kansas or are just passing through its top destinations on a road trip, there are few different options available for overnight accommodations. You can stay in a familiar chain hotel, a budget-friendly motor lodge, pitch a tent to go camping, or treat yourself to a glamping-style cabin. We love Kansas cabins because they add a sense of adventure and rustic charm to any trip.
Here are the best cabin rentals in Kansas to book for a fun getaway.
We also love this cozy cabin for up to four people that’s been newly renovated. It has miles of hiking trails nearby and is five minutes from the lake. The cabin is on 15 acres of mostly wooded property. The host provides fishing poles, an axe-throwing area, a fire pit, and a horseshoe pit for guests to use. There are three friendly dogs that live onsite. This is an ideal getaway for two adults and two children. There’s a catch-and-release pond here and also Wi-Fi, a TV, a kitchen, and free parking. The Kansas City Renaissance Festival and Providence Amphitheater are 20 minutes away.
With its distinctive blue door, this Kansas cabin accommodates five people and has one bedroom and one bath. It’s a nature retreat with a lovely pond view that’s great for solitude, fishing trips, and family hiking trips. The property comes with a charcoal grill, fire pit, and some complimentary firewood. There are no TVs or Wi-Fi here. The bedroom has a queen-size bed, and there’s a pack-and-play travel crib available for little ones.
To be totally off the grid but still be comfortable, book this Vrbo cabin south of Junction City. It’s a totally private and secluded space with a propane grill, screened-in porch, air conditioning, and heating. The cabin is by a four-acre pond and on a really unique property. It sleeps five people and has one bedroom and one bathroom. When you stay here, you’ll also have a kitchen, mini-fridge, deep-freeze, games for kids, and outdoor furniture. A boat is available for summer and fall reservations. Children over age three are welcome here but pets are not allowed.
For a studio-style cabin for two people, consider this Kansas Airbnb that’s a true cabin out in the woods. Be aware that there is no running water, Wi-Fi, or TV. You’ll have a rustic setting here but also heat, air conditioning, a fridge, coffeemaker, and a king-size bed for your comfort. This is a fun place to sit out on the secluded deck or around the fireplace and picnic table to watch wildlife. Parking is about a quarter-mile from the cabin, so you’ll need to hike in to get here.
This Airbnb cabin accommodates four people in a studio space with two beds and one bath. It’s on a small residential lake and comes with Wi-Fi, coffee and tea supplies, toiletries, RokuTV, and kitchen essentials. Individuals and couples enjoy staying in this 500-square-foot space with a screened-in back porch. There’s also a front porch here to sit on. Pets are not allowed at the cabin. Sleeping arrangements are a queen-size bed and a sofa bed. This is one of several cabins on the lake and a place to enjoy some peace and quiet.
A Vrbo cabin in Kansas worth considering is this one that gets excellent reviews and sleeps up to five people. It is right next to the water and a favorite spot among fishermen and hunters. Catch-and-release fishing is allowed. Indoors, there’s pool and ping pong to play, as well as a kitchenette, living area, and bathroom with towels provided. It’s also fun to play at the basketball hoop and horseshoe pit for relaxing days and evenings. The setting is very rural, but you’ll be on the edge of the city limits.

This is a very highly rated and popular Airbnb cabin rental for two people in Kansas. It is a historic building on a family farm that’s quaint and cozy.

It has plenty of privacy for your stay and beautiful natural surroundings. The cabin is also equipped with heating, air conditioning, and an indoor fireplace.
One of the most unique cabin-type accommodations we’ve come across in Kansas is this Airbnb rental in the Flint Hills. It’s a lodging and agricultural experience on 100 acres of farmland. The “cabin” was made from two-grain bins and has glass walls connecting them. You’ll feel “at one” with nature here and also have modern amenities like a full kitchen and bathroom. The cabin has a propane grill and outdoor fire pit. It’s seven miles from town and comes with coffee supplies and snacks. It’s on a property alongside the host’s operating ranch and personal home, but you’re welcome to hike around the property, meet the horses, get a property tour, and try some catch-and-release fishing.
