Wanna get away? What better place to escape for a little R&R than this amazing four-season log cabin surrounded by forest.
Having grown up in the PNW, summering in the islands west of Seattle surrounded by dense forest, this one tugs at my heart more than a little bit. It feels like "home". Granted, our modest family cabin had no pool house with 2-story fireplace and under floor heating, nor did we have a walk-in sauna (LOL). The main house, dating back to the 1920's, has been updated while maintaining its rustic charm (those painted floors are everything). The kitchen centers around the most beautiful authentic built-in fireplace/ stove/oven. The beautifully designed upstairs "bunk room" sleeps at least 4. Plus there's a separate primary room with desk area.
