comment Magnetic stripe or EMV (chip-and-pin) credit cards in France?
As an aside, to me, the pattern suggests that there's some law, regulation or standard that mag+sig cards are only accepted if a person can confirm the signature. On chip+pin cards, the PIN serves as the identity check in place of the signature. Since the PIN can be verified without a person, it's accepted in their absence.

I saw Flipkey when I was going through Tripadvisor, somehow. Maybe TripAdvisor is linking to their sister site. I'll give Craigslist a try. Thanks.

Thank you. My search began with Google, and with the right search terms it might be the best tool for this. I'll continue to experiment with the terms till I find more secluded places.

Thanks gerrit. I'll check that site. @Karlson: I'm hoping to find a cabin in the north east U.S. but I wanted to make the question more general to help others who might have an interest in the same.

I'm hoping to find an easier way to look for secluded cabins. Unfortunately none of the options I've listed are easy and several may have nothing secluded at all. In other words, this almost seems like a word of mouth kind of endeavor, asking friends and friends of friends if they own or know of such cabins but I'm hoping there's a way to search online, for places that I would never hear about otherwise. That's what I'd like to find out from this community.
