Escaping the daily grind has always been a hassle. From booking flights to finding the right hotel, I find it difficult to get what I want. Determined to find a cool option that wouldn't break the bank, I asked a couple of my friends for recommendations, and that's when they told me about Getaway. Getaway are clusters of little cabins located a few hours outside the city that are designed to help you switch off and really connect with your partner.

Getaway was created to offer a way to detach from the distractions of everyday life by providing cozy cabins that immerse you in nature. This sounded like exactly what I needed, but I was skeptical. I thought the drive to the cabin would be far, I might get lost in the woods, and booking an entire cabin feels expensive. To my surprise, I learned that their locations - they call them "Outposts" were only 2 hours away from major cities like mine and that rentals started at just $89 a night. So we decided to give it a try.

Ahead of our stay, we received a few emails with information on what to expect, how to pack, and of course the address, cabin name, and lock code for our stay. We even got material about activities we could do in the area, such as hiking and shopping. It was comforting to know that if we ran out of things to do, we'd still have the option to visit a nearby town.

The scenic drive to the Outpostwas so beautiful; it already gave us breathing space from work. When we got there, we could see the cabins scattered throughout the trees. Our neighbors were far enough away for it to feel as if we were by ourselves. Our cabin had a huge window that made us feel like we were really sleeping outside but with all of the comforts of staying indoors. The cabin had a cell phone lockbox, a private bathroom, hot showers, running water, a two-burner stove, a pot, a pan, playing cards, games, and the most comfortable queen-sized bed and fresh linens. The outdoor picnic area had a table, fire pit, and a grill grate, which is everything we needed for our stay.

My girlfriend and I locked up our phones for the weekend, turned on some music, and started grilling. We spent time basking in the warm sun and breathing in the fresh air all around us. We went on a few hikes with incredible views of the mountains and finished our day with a refreshing beer by the campfire.

At night, we sat by the open fire and the hours flew by as we made s'mores and played games. This was the perfect vacation we always wanted but could never find. Thanks to Getaway, we found a way to unplug from the daily hustle (and not break our budget), and we'll definitely be coming back to the little cabin nestled beneath the trees.
