The cabin is perhaps the most iconic of American structures, harkening back to colonial and pioneer days. They recall a time before cell phones and email, evoking images of cozy fireplaces and quiet contemplation. For many, the cabin also summons forth images of logs and plaid, plank floors and lofted beds. The Cabin Book offers a wonderful variety of forms and explores the most innovative designs in cabin architecture. Once rustic and simple, the cabin is now comfortable and chic, putting owners in the heart of the wilderness while providing comfort and beauty so they can get away in style.
Among the 25 cabins included is a little-known Wisconsin cabin designed by Frank Lloyd Wright; an upstate Michigan log cabin designed by renowned architect Anthony Belluschi; and a one-room "urban" cabin in Portland, Oregon. One couple designed a cabin-all on one floor-without the use of right angles. Whether ensconced in glass or surrounded by an enormous porch, these cabins speak of personal style, perfect for the rugged or the sybaritic.
Like cottages, the cabin is one of the most popular house styles, since it is small enough to be inexpensive and easy to maintain. Everyone dreams of an idyllic retreat, and this book showcases its best examples.

About the Author:

Linda Leigh Paul is the author of many books, including Cottages by the Sea, Coastal Retreats, Desert Retreats, Cottages on the Coast, The Cabin Book, Island Living, and Lakeside Living. She earned both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree from Reed College, and currently lives in Lake Oswego, Oregon.

From Booklist:

The rustic connotation of the cabin, with basic comfort, is a starting point for Paul. However, it is the relationship of the cabin to its surroundings and its occupants that defines its substance and character. Paul focuses on 29 cabins with unique aesthetic-architectural appeal. She includes a little-known Nevada cabin designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and settings as varied as dunes and mountains. But it is the placement of the cabin--its use and purposes for the occupant--upon which its aesthetic function turns. Paul's photographs and writing bring to life old cabins made new, new cabins made to look old, numerous designs that appear to envelop or reflect a part of the landscape, and others to stand out. What is particularly appealing is how the cabins' occupants have incorporated the outdoors and scenery into interior living space. The sizes, styles, materials, and interiors are quite varied and beautiful. The emphasis on the organic function of the cabin, as well as Paul's stunning photographs, brings to life an inviting quest to get away. Vernon Ford
