The A-frame may not be as popular as it was in the early 1970s, but this 1,250-square-foot cabin in the Sierra Nevada proves that the iconic style can be just as cool today as it was then. Asking a relatively cheap $425,000 for the cabin and its surrounding 10 acres, the property (about four hours east of San Francisco) borders the Sierra National Forest and isn't far from Yosemite National Park. The off-the-grid structure runs on solar power with its own well and septic system and adventure seekers will love that in the winter it's only accessible by snowmobile or snowcat. Inside, everything is retro-chic, with a simple, updated kitchen, avocado accents, and a spiraling staircase that leads to two beds and an updated bathroom in the loft. Previously used as a summer vacation rental and featured on the November 2013 issue of Sunset Magazine, this gem is a fraction of the price of many mountain getaways.
