8 amazing country cabins

These gorgeous homes-away-from-home prove that spending a weekend at the cabin doesn't have to mean roughing it!
  • Rustic retreat

    This Estemerwalt Log Homes cabin in Montoursville, Pennsylvania, is a year-round rustic hunting and fishing retreat. It is a marvel of simple efficiency: the 1,200 square feet of living space relies on nooks to delineate space functionally; two small sleeping lofts meet at a spiral staircase, and there are three more beds on the main level. Furnishings are sparse, as are amenities: the owner of this cabin chose to keep this home completely of the grid.

The interior showcases natural daylight that brightens the hardwood floors throughout the home, including the kitchen. The large living room has a stone fireplace overlooking a large landscaped yard filled with plants leading down to the lake. The lower level of the home is a walkout, offering a spectacular lakeside view through two French double doors that open onto a patio.

  • Log cabin retreat

    Rustic elegance is a growing trend, and with good reason: It doesn't matter where we live or how chaotic our lives become, we all enjoy a sense of comfort, familiarity and simplicity. Log homes bring us back to that state. The owners of this Estemerwalt Log Homes house created their ideal retreat on their sprawling wooded property. The spectacular 2,700-square-foot getaway is molded out of 12" round logs. With an additional 1,800 square feet in the fully furnished basement, six bedrooms, and three baths, the home lends itself to large family get-togethers in the country.

  • Historic home is revitalized

    This historic 600-square-foot home near Danville, Ohio, received a stunning timber frame addition from OakBridge Timber Framing. The builder's Amish craftsmen added a 1,200-square-foot, two-level, barn-like main house to complement the original structure. The two buildings are connected with a large timber-framed hall that serves as the perfect transition between centuries.

  • Simplicity at its finest

    This home near Ferrisburg, Vermont, was built by Connor Homes of Middlebury, Vermont. The main living space is open and centered around a wood stove with dining space on one side and a family room on the other. Adding to the open feel, French doors open to the spacious screened-in porch with views of the lake. The porch, which runs the entire length of the back of the main house block, has plenty of room for enjoying a meal in the evening after conversing in comfortable wicker chairs. The kitchen lies just off the main living area and is a study in efficiency, detail and beauty.
