Cabins for Sale - Cheap

By - 2009, updated 2012

Is it possible to find cheap cabins for sale in nice locations in 2012? That's what this most recent update is all about, and the answer is yes. The cheapest listing we found when scouring the listings around the country was under $30,000, but we kept all the examples that follow to less than $100,000 in any case.

Now, it may be true that most of these will have sold by the time you read this. But it will give you an idea of what's available in different parts of the country. This is being updated in early 2012, and we note the source of each listing we found.

Bismarck, Arkansas

Over three acres and hundreds of feet of riverfront come with this two-bedroom log home. A five-minute walk down a small road takes you Degray Lake. Covered porch or decking on three sides--all for $40,900.. We found this one on UnitedCountry.com.

Alturas, California

Who says California is expensive? This log cabin, on more than an acre of land, has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and is listed at just $95,000.

Murphy, North Carolina

A two bedroom log cabin built just fifteen years ago! It has a long covered porch and a wooded lot. But it isn't too rustic; it also has central heat and air conditioning. $95,000 is the list price on NorthGeorgiaMountainRealty.com.

Okeechobee, Florida

Log cabins are on sale in Florida, just like most other real estate. This listing we found on UnitedCountry.com has only one bedroom and one bathroom, but it has fishing from your back yard! The canal it sits on connects to Lake Okeechobee. It is part of a cabin-condo development, so you get a swimming pool and other amenities as well. Just $62,000.

You might think a Colorado cabin is too expensive, but this little mountain cabin is just $29,900. It sits on only a half-acre of land, but hunting or hiking is out your back door. Listed on ColoradoLandCabins.com.

Kingsbury, Maine

Escape to the north woods with this totally renovated cabin on 6 acres. It borders a small trout stream and is near great hunting, snowmobile trails and more. With its own generator you can even live off the grid. The price? $70,000. On UnitedCountry.com.

Lewistown, Montana

If you like cheap acreage, this is the place. We found a listing on UnitedCountry.com with 63 acres and a small cabin for $77,000. It border BLM land, which means you have privacy and little chance of nearby development. On UnitedCountry.com.

Rutledge, Tennessee

What does $77,900 buy you in Tennessee? A cute two-bedroom two-bath log home two minutes from Wani Village Marina and Cherokee Lake. You can boat, fish, and swim. On UnitedCountry.com.

In addition to the cabins for sale online and through the usual channels, you might also create your own wilderness escape. One of the cheapest ways to do this is to buy some land in a beautiful and relatively unrestricted place, and then buy a cheap RV to park on it. There you have an instant cabin on land.

Then there is the "prepper" or survivalist cabin. If you are handy and adventurous you can buy a shipping container for a few thousand dollars and have it put on your land to be made into a cabin. These things are tough, offering protection from storms and criminals.
