Destination Kohler expands its private cabin logdgings by 100 percent this weekend as it begins offering stays at two new cabins: Lake, with views over Lake Michigan, and Pond, in a woodland location.

These 1,200-square-foot getaways join the existing Sandhill and Red Fox cabins.

All four, which are scattered in different locations, offer not just serenity but also socially distanced vacationing if you’re nervous about being around other folks.

They are also arrayed around Kohler and include access to the considerable amenities at The American Club. Pond and Lake are each about 10 minutes away by car.

Lake (pictured above in two photos) has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and is meant for four guests and it has that lake view as well as a lake-inspired decor.

Pond (pictured in two photos below) is more rustic in flavor, though no less luxurious in practice, and again is perfect for four, with two bedrooms and two baths, but this time with a wood-burning fireplace and a more forested vibe.

Both offer chef-inspired kitchens, but a personal chef is also available and you can have someone shop for and deliver groceries to you at either cabin, if you prefer to do the cooking yourself.

Oh, and you can reserve a guest Beemer to use during your stay, too.

Pond and Lake are both dog-friendly.

As you might imagine, this is not budget travel. On the lower end (an off-season weekday) you can slip in for rates starting at $842 a night, though during in-demand weekends expect to pay as much as $2,078 a night.

But, sometimes, you get what you pay for.
