72 Modern Cabin Retreats

From Modern Wood Cabin Residences to Glittering Mountain Homes

— July 25, 2013 — Art & Design
While spending the night out in the wilderness often suggests a more rugged and adventurous way of living, these modern cabin retreats are showcasing that you can also live luxuriously while out in nature.

Traditional cabin structures are often made from classic timber or log materials, allowing these homes to blend in with the more rustic and natural environmental setting. These modern cabin retreats however, have been redesigned to cater to a much more modern and contemporary consumer, featuring such sleek features as clear glass windows, patios and multiple levels to relax on. From floating eco cabins to sunken contemporary cottages, these modern cabin retreats will certainly make spending a night out in the woods something to look forward to.
