A fresh look at refined cabin-home design from destination mountain resorts to pristine rural and rustic locales.

Chase Reynolds Ewald has been writing about design, travel, and lifestyle for 25 years. A graduate of Yale and the Graduate School of Journalism at U.C. Berkeley, she is currently the senior editor of Western Art & Architecture magazine. She lives in Tiburon, California. Audrey Hall’s images about culture, style, and travel are featured from social media to television. This is her eleventh book. She lives in Livingston, Montana.

Cabin Style gives us an up-close look at some of the most exclusive architect-designed cabins, ranch houses, and lodges located in popular resort areas. Stunning cabin exteriors and interiors, combined with well-told stories of the homes and their owners, take readers into the living rooms of cozy log, wood, and rock homes in Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, California, and Tennessee. Luxurious cabins lure the owners of second homes to relaxing weeks in isolated landscape settings or upscale enclaves—always within reach of ski resorts, fly-fishing rivers, and outdoor
recreation of all types.

Lakeside Cabin Style
Situated on a private, spring-fed lake in Tennessee, this graceful structure offers unimpeded views of the lake and a glass-walled bridge access to the
all-season, visually floating porch.
The interior of the Lakeside Cabin showcases the furnishings,
which were selected to match the desired, old feel of the house.
Hot Springs Hideaway
The Northern Idaho home was designed to have a rustic style,
be simple and quiet in tone,
and lightly ornamented.
