The triangular structure of the A-frame cabin has a long history, but it wasn’t until after World War II that it became a popular style in the U.S. Now the homes are favorites for those looking for a charming cabin feel. There’s even a section on Airbnb to help travelers find the aesthetically pleasing A-frame of their dreams. Here are some within the state.
