Today we’re touring a family retreat by Hoedemaker Pfeiffer that offers a series of cabins. A main cabin provides the general gathering space and separate buildings, like a writer’s hut, create private little retreats within the family retreat. Today’s charming home is located on the San Juan Islands just north of Seattle. The main cabin enjoys an inspiring view from the front porch.
Although the outside of the main cabin looks rustic, the inside is light and airy. Transom windows allow natural light from French doors to flood the interior spaces.
Trim work wears a warm mustard color and ample windows keep runs looking sunny despite the overabundance of cloudy days in the northwestern region.
The writer’s hut embodies a cozy office area for working or simply getting a little me-time.
Rather than add upper cabinets in the kitchen, a row of open shelving resides in front of windows. Glassware is stored on the shelves and allows light to penetrate the room.
A family retreat wouldn’t be complete without a gorgeous stone fireplace and warming fire.
The main bedroom enjoys vaulted ceilings and the same warm mustard color on the trim work.
A beautiful claw foot tub is the focal point in the farmhouse style bathroom with shiplap walls and painted wood panel doors.
The sink is place in front of the window which creates storage space on either side.
The family retreat has a common gathering space for outdoor meals and entertaining.
At night, the views from the front porch of the main cabin are just as beautiful as during daylight hours.
