Each bedroom gets its own bath in this standout vacation home, making it a good choice for an extended family or a group of friends enjoying a weekend together. On the top floor, one of the two master suites boasts a private balcony, a walk-in closet, and a loft. Downstairs, the other master suite and another bedroom (with a full ball bath) have easy access to the laundry facilities. The main living room displays a soaring window wall that opens to the wraparound deck. A dramatic fireplace provides a warm focal point. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Two Super-Private Master Suites

With two equally spacious master suites, this cabin house plan is perfect for the getaway weekend with friends. Each suite is separated from the main house via a breezeway, giving outstanding privacy to the rooms. Inside, the dining and lodge rooms merge into one open area that flows into the snack-bar kitchen and draws the eye up with a vaulted ceiling. A large covered porch features a fireplace on one end and a barbecue on the other. Each master suite includes a master bath, walk-in closet, and private porch. The optional loft is perfect for additional lodging or a game room. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Full Apartment Accessed from Interior

As a cozy mountain cabin or a refreshing lake retreat, this comfy home is designed for privacy and total relaxation. Highlighting the home is a gourmet kitchen with a cooktop island and an adjoining snack bar for casual meals. A dining room is nearby and opens to the spacious gathering room with a fireplace and side-porch access. A grand master suite uses unique angles and a luxury bath to add subtle style. Up the central stairs, a bedroom enjoys a full bath and quiet loft reading area. Above the garage (but accessed from the interior), apartment-style sleeping quarters include a separate bedroom and living area and a full bath. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Suite Downstairs

With an emphasis on indoor/outdoor living, natural materials, and family togetherness, this beautiful rugged home is ready for the most scenic location. On the lower level, a guest suite and family room provides plenty of privacy to visitors. Back on the main level, the open layout gives outstanding views of the property even from the foyer. The kitchen includes an island with seating and an adjoining (and glass-surrounded) breakfast nook that opens to the expansive deck. Owners will love the private fireplace in the master suite. Two more bedroom suites and an office complete this remarkable home. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
