Cabins capture our imaginations. Here are four that deliver that back-to-nature feeling while still providing some upscale comforts. Call it the rustic home equivalent of glamping (glam camping).

Private Balcony for the Master Suite

At the heart of this beautiful home, the great room opens up to an inviting wraparound multi-purpose deck through double French doors and the kitchen's island provides casual seating. The large main-floor guest bedroom is naturally lit with two windows. The upstairs master bedroom offers a private balcony plus two interior, fully-functioning windows that overlook the great room below, creating a unique look and feel. A large closet gives owners room to store heavy winter clothing. Another generous bedroom rounds out this floor. See more images, information, and the floor plans.

Kid Zone Upstairs

This gorgeous A-frame home features an open layout and four bedrooms, giving buyers lots of room for family and friends. On the main level, the kitchen's roomy island creates a relaxed vibe with snack-bar seating. Nearby, the open dining room flows with ease into the great room. The master suite invites owners to relax in the whirlpool tub. Another bedroom and bath are easy to reach on this level, while upstairs, kids will enjoy having their own zone with two bedrooms, another bath, and an open sitting room.

There's a thoroughly modern floor plan inside this striking cabin, starting with the kitchen's snack bar that opens to the cozy living area. A central island holds the cooktop, making it easy to dish up pancakes to the glass-enclosed dining nook. The master suite is located on this floor and features a private bathroom. Upstairs, guests can spread out with another bedroom, a full bathroom, and even an office. See more images, information, and the floor plans.


Room for In-Laws

An extra bedroom suite (nearly as spacious as the master) provides remarkably comfortable accommodations for guests on the first floor, while the split-bedroom layout preserves privacy for everyone. The open great room, dining area, and kitchen offer outstanding flow, with space for casual meals at the snack bar. A sleeping loft upstairs gives kids room to play games while the adults gather around the fireplace. When the weather warms up, everyone can head out to the enormous porch. See more images, information, and the floor plans.
