Cabin Charm Meets Cottage Style


With cabin-style chinked logs on the outside, the interior shifts to a rustic cottage style with a surprisingly refined finish.

When one thinks of a vacation home, either a lakeside or seaside cottage or a mountain log cabin usually comes to mind. This clever home blends the two. Logs—the most available mountain material—were chosen for the structure. In the absence of a nearby sawmill, logs can be cut and shaped with hand tools. While rustic and cozy, log walls can make a cabin dark.
