In the summer, it's likely that you and your friends plan camping trips out to your favourite Provincial and National Parks. Now that it's winter, camping may seem a lot less tempting, and you're probably dreaming of jetting off to the Bahamas, or some other warm and tropical destination.

I know that I for sure can't afford a plane ticket right now, but one thing I CAN afford is a beautiful cabin in the Alberta wilderness to share with my best friends! Spending time in a cabin in the winter is easily one of the best and coziest feelings - I'm sure some of you agree.

If you and your BFFs want to plan an adventure this winter, especially now that school's almost done for the semester, this list will help you do just that! With so many beautiful and affordable cottages to choose from, who knows where you'll end up:
