Nothing quite conjures up the feel of rustic living like a wooden cabin. The very image brings associations of simple living, a close connection to the earth and lots of cosy time spent enjoying the quiet things in life. A private rustic getaway doesn't just appeal to the hermits among us, it's perfect for couples looking for some romance or even a large family looking to spend some time reconnecting over outdoor activities.
So today, we present a collection of the finest wooden homes we have here on homify! Some of them are downright gorgeous…
The cute wooden cabin has a lovely connection with the outdoors. It's not too showy either. The floor size may be small but that is compensated by the extended height of the home and the large glass wall on one side.
This pale wooden cabin has a simple large living space, but the real eye catching factor is the facade. The glass wall ensures an open breezy connection with the outdoors and the peaks give it a warm, classic look.
