The Little Lakeside Cabin We'd Like to Escape To

Lake Cabin Tour
Cozy? Check. Charming? Check. We dare you not to be swept away by this 1930s cabin's breezy summer style.

All Aglow

Nestled in the woods of Lake Tahoe, this compact cabin's warm glow ushers guests to come on in after a lazy day of splashing around cool waters and warming up by the bonfire. From the outside, it looks straight out of a summer camp movie set -- but step inside, and you'll be blown away by its casual modern-coastal style.

Coastal Cool

A living room flooded with natural light and cozy elements? You have our attention. Coastal, rustic, and modern elements smartly combine to form this casual, eye-catching gathering space. Gray-washed knotty wood planks put a fresh spin on traditional cabin character.

Sunny Cook Space

Even the most classic, beautiful white kitchens can benefit from a jolt of color. Here, blue and gray accents, eye-catching appliances, and wood countertops keep the cook space looking smart.

Pops of Color

The cabin's interior is all about warm neutrals of sand and stone, but glossy cobalt makes a big splash on the sleek fridge-freezer unit in the kitchenette. A butcher-block table offers extra prep and dining space.

Refreshingly Rustic

With expansive windows and panoramic views of the outdoors, it's hard to tell where the cabin ends and the wood begins. Wide-plank floors and hefty wood beams overhead wrap this light-filled dining room in rustic charm.

Creative Tablescape

Thrifted treasures can become the coolest centerpieces. A toy canoe serves as one-of-a-kind utensil storage. Pair it with a wooden serving tray and a pretty, flower-filled vase, and you have an eye-catching tablescape.

Morning, Sunshine

With soft linens in sandy neutrals and bright blues, it's easy to start the day smiling. Barn-style doors and horizontal planks of wood wrap this bright, cottagey bedroom in casual elegance, while a woven headboard and sculptural wood table add texture and warmth.

Whimsical Flair

Natural light floods every corner of the tiny cabin, whose blue-painted ceilings and nautical motifs bottle up the sweetest, most nostalgic bits of summer. Here, a gray-washed steamer chest in the bedroom adds industrial-style storage in the bedroom.

Modern Mix

The bedroom and bath are filled with beautiful, unexpected textures. Here, chunky soapstone counters are paired with skinny subway tile and soft linens. Colorful oversize knobs give blue cabinetry a playful edge.

Fire Pit

No summer retreat is complete without a campfire to gather round after the sun goes down. This fire pit plays a fun role as the postdinner hangout spot for gooey s'mores and camp-style sing-alongs.
