Enter an off-the-grid cabin – the natural light inside creates the perfect 'welcome home'

With many modern log home manufacturers stepping closer and closer to constructing wooden palaces, it is important to explore simpler floor plans, and remember what the heart of the log home lifestyle is all about.
While contemporary wooden retreats are beautiful in their own right, what draws us to log cabins is the simplicity of the space and a true off-grid approach to living. Living in a log cabin is about independence from society, and few express this better than the home we are going to tour today.
This lovely cabin is located on 20 acres of the Montana countryside, and is truly self-sufficient, with no reliance on the outside world. The home is listed by United Country Real Estate, offering a simple floor plan which provides everything you need to balance the outdoors lifestyle, including two bedrooms in the loft area. Shall we take a look inside?
This ample-sized cabin features enough room for everything you need, without superfluous space which requires heating and cleaning. It is functional, not decadent: the way a log cabin should be.
The attractive wooden exterior puts the cabin at home among nature. It seamlessly blends into the natural environment - inviting!
Inside the cabin, we find a cozy living room which is bathed in natural light. The whitewashed walls reflect the light all around, brightening even the darkest corners.
Without a soaring cathedral ceiling, the cabin is easily heated by this wood-burning stove - perfect for when you return home late in the evening.
The main living area is spacious enough to house robust furniture without feeling cluttered or cramped.
Plenty of large windows all around the cabin ensure you benefit from relaxing views of the surrounding woodlands.
The kitchen is a simple cooking area which, again, has plenty of room for maneuvering.
The two bedrooms within this cabin are located on the upper floor.
The bedrooms are separated by a walkway which is open to the living room below.
The master bedroom is a cozy retreat which feels secluded from the rest of the house.
The second bedroom includes enough space to house all the members of your party.
Imagine returning to this simple, off-grid cabin at the end of a satisfying day submerged in nature. What a dream!
We love the simplicity of this rustic cabin. Is it your ideal cabin too? SHARE the tour with your friends on Facebook.
