Architecture Wednesday: Dreamy Rustic Cabin

I like the rustic; I like the whimsy; I like the fact that, while it’s brand-new, it’s been crafted to look like it’s a much older home;  there’s a sense of mountain cabin mixed with industrial touches in the woods by a lake..

This  cabin sits alongside Ten Mile Lake, in north-central, Minnesota, and is the kind of home where you bring the whole family and friends to spend a week … or a month … at the lake. I love all the wood and the furnishings, and that meandering covered screened-in walkway to a screened porch at the end of the property. And because I do the laundry at Casa Bob y Carlos, I even love that laundry room … conveniently located near the wine room.

The property is surrounded by mature growth trees that give it a feeling of being far away from the world.

We could all use that, and I could use that big wine room!

I really, really like this one. Remove the moose head and Minnesota, and I'd love it!

Bob, this is my dream home (minus deer head and stairs!). Sigh. A girl can always wish.

Surprisingly ... I love this house. I would normally not like ALL the dark wood everywhere, but since it's in the woods at a lake I can appreciate it's design. And why not a laundry room near the wine room!One as to do something while awaiting the washing gets done. How nice would a 20 foot tree look between that fireplace and corner window????

It sort of reminds me of the Spillane Estate I stayed at twice in the Adirondacks.

@Deedles
Done and done. Where shall I send it???

@Sheila
Yeah, I'm over stairs, too!

@TDM
Fluff'n'Fold'n'Pinot Noir!

@MM
It IS a lot of wood, but somehow it doesn't feel overwhelmed!

@JM
Romantic is a great word to describe this place!

@VRC
Stock it up and quarantine all winter sounds like a grand idea!

@Dave
Seems a lot of us can.

@uptonking
But wine room by the laundry? As someone who does the laundry, and the wine, in our house, this is heaven!

Maybe a bit TOO many wood tones for me but I pretty much agree with Deedles.

I could spend a weekend there, a little over decorated for me.
