The Pacific Northwest is made for weekend retreats. Mountains, lakes, ocean, Sound, and forests beckon us to make the most of our natural surroundings. Family cabins offer unique opportunities to share in the splendor of Washington summers and to reimagine the “rustic” lifestyle so often associated with cabin-living.
Cabin at Lake Wenatchee
Built to withstand external tempests as well as the realities of damp and sandy lake life, Cabin at Lake Wenatchee presents a modern take on traditional cabin living. Concrete floors and corrugated metal siding imbue a contemporary, industrial vibe that’s softened by the wood beams and pillars throughout the interior. Bright green walls and deep red cabinets mingle with the vibrant kitchen backsplash to create a sense of boldness and life consistent throughout the home.
Tumble Creek Cabin
Crafted as a private family getaway, Tumble Creek Cabin draws inspiration from mountain architecture and the Roslyn community’s rich history in the mining industry. The home uses space strategically, emphasizing shared multipurpose rooms and elegant divisions between private and public areas. The kids’ bunk room looks out at the backyard treehouse and an interior stone wall doubles as a climbing wall for rainy days.
With exquisite views of Mount Rainier and the Puget Sound, Coastal Cove was designed for family gatherings. Its emphasis on natural light, communal spaces, and easy access to the outdoors invites visitors to engage with their surroundings and with each other. On warm summer days, a sprawling beach and multi-tiered deck complete with an outdoor kitchen allow occupants to make memories outside.
