Overview

Cabins and Camps offers an intimate view of elegant mountain homes and log cabins from New York's Adirondacks to Idaho's Rocky Mountains. These rustic retreats aim for the perfect balance between luxurious American home and comfortable, isolated getaway.

Visit Avalanche Ranch, nestled in a calm corner of the Idaho Rockies; Big Hole River Ranch in the wilds of Montana; a 1910 Scandinavian-style log home reassembled and embellished with handcrafted details; an Adirondacks "tear-down" completely remodeled and fitted for new life as a lakefront hideaway; a minimalist upstairs apartment outfitted with an intriguing collection of Native American, western, and Arts & Crafts antiques.

As many of the homeowners are advocates of contemporary rustic artists, their abodes feature handcrafted one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. In celebration of rustic artistry, Cabins and Camps includes a full gallery of extraordinary new creations from a handful of the top rustic artists in America today.

The homes featured here illustrate just what a little hideaway in the mountains can become-a place of natural honesty, refuge, and comfort.

Read an Excerpt

The Art of Rustic

Most rustic furniture makers lie just outside the mainstream of society. The lead nontraditional lives and are, quite honestly, a bit eccentric. Some build furniture for the money, some enjoy the independent lifestyle, and others just enjoy working with their hands. Most are aspiring craftsmen, and some--just a few--have elevated themselves to the noble distinction of artist. And this is not an easy position to either acquire or maintain. However, the struggle to achieve is a heroic one. We are all born with skills, and one form of heroism is the courage to pursue and develop a latent talent. As individuals, we have the lifelong responsibility of cultivating ourselves. Some individuals, however, are just lucky enough to have been born with talents far beyond those of many people on the planet. When they find the right medium for their expression, magic happens. As a retired teacher, I've been priveleged to watch a few individuals blossom once they found the right medium. As a musician, I have spent many years playing scales, learning patterns and struggling to get my fingers to play the music I hear in my hear. Others, only a few, get it instantly--or so it seems.
