There are a certain number of features that appear in most log cabins. They are the elements we love in a wooded retreat — elements that perfectly complement the back-to-basics lifestyle of a rural setting.
We love to see open floor plans, cathedral ceilings, soaring walls of windows, rustic fireplaces, country-style kitchens, deep porches and an abundance of gorgeous wood. They make a log cabin a home, creating the perfect space to retire to after a day in the great outdoors.
Many cabins feature these pleasing elements in their design, the difference often being the quality of materials used and the precision of execution. Oakbrook is a fantastic example of a modern log cabin with an expertly crafted finish. Offered by Honest Abe Log Homes, this abode includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Shall we take a look inside?
The great room boasts a soaring cathedral ceiling. The rich tones in the light-colored wood are highlighted by the numerous large windows.
The stone fireplace has a commanding presence in the main living area. It is the focal point of the room and ideal for relaxing evenings.
The great room has an open concept with the kitchen and dining room. The high ceiling houses a spacious loft with an attractive weave of beams.
The inviting kitchen balances a rustic style with modern convenience. The wood cabinetry keeps with the theme of the house, while the contemporary appliances make the room sleek and functional.
What a delightful kitchen — quaint yet spacious!
The dining area is encased by a wall of windows, giving mealtimes a spectacular woodland panorama.
Oakbrook has two bedrooms on the ground floor and the master bedroom in the loft.
The ground floor bedrooms offer plenty of space, which can be customized to house all the members of your party.
The upstairs master bedroom is a charming retreat from the rest of the house.
The bright and airy loft space is ideal for a second sitting room or a home office.
Oakbrook has two bathrooms, which are finished to the exceptional standards seen throughout this lovely home.
No log home would be complete without a porch. Oakbrook has a deep deck that comfortably fits a large dining set.
