What a stunning image this rustic log home creates. The large porch has plenty of room for comfortable seating, a dining set and a barbecue grill. The large window gives us a glimpse inside the cabin, and we know that on the other side of the wall, that window will allow the natural light to pour into the home.
This cozy cabin is listed for rental purposes on Airbnb. It is located in Phoenicia, New York, with sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and close access to some of the Empire State's best hiking trails. The cabin is ideal for those looking for a weekend retreat with friends, with three bedrooms, one bathroom and a large open-concept living room decorated with gorgeous antique furniture. Do you want to take a look around?
From the outside, you can see how the irregular cut logs create an attractive rustic aesthetic. The massive peaked roof over the wide porch is an eye-catching design feature that all log home enthusiasts will enjoy.
You enter the house via the front porch, which has enough comfortable furniture for all of your party to chill out. It must be so quiet to sit out here, surrounded by the woods, with no other sounds but the wildlife and the wind. Lovely!
As you step inside the house, you are immediately bowled over by the spacious open floor plan, which is finished with beautiful and varied tones of wood. The high ceiling and open-concept floor plan make the cabin feel much larger than the actual square footage.
The sitting area is furnished with comfortable sofas, which are perfect for sinking into at the end of the day. The impressive stone fireplace has a wood-burning stove that will keep this room warm and toasty.
The large windows are a feature on every wall in the main living room, and they brighten the living space no matter the sun's position in the sky.
The large dining table can comfortably seat six people: perfect for informal and relaxing dinner parties.
The rustic kitchen is pieced together with mismatched cabinetry, which would seem strange on paper but, in reality, works really well. The contrast between antique tables and white metal cupboards makes an interesting aesthetic that you don't see very often.
The master bedroom is located on the upper floor of the cabin and is furnished with rugged and robust furniture that is right at home in a log cabin.
This upstairs bedroom doesn't suffer from a lack of headroom like you find in some log cabins. There is ample space for everyone to fully stretch out when they wake in the morning.
The main bedroom is complete with a charming antique desk, giving the romantic imagery of the reclusive writer escaping from the city to finally finish that tricky novel.
Back on the ground floor, you pass a large bookshelf to arrive at another bedroom.
This secluded bedroom hosts two comfortable beds wedged in between rustic log walls. While it is not the most spacious room, it is comfortable, and often a bedroom is just a place to sleep when you are away on vacation.
A third bedroom — also on the ground floor — hosts a queen-size bed and is suitable for a couple, with the feel of a real bedroom. The rough log walls are an attractive feature throughout the cabin, and nowhere more so than in this simply decorated bedroom.
This bedroom comes complete with plenty of built-in closet space.
The cabin's bathroom is a throwback to days gone by, featuring a gorgeous antique claw-foot bathtub.
