The Orvis Book of Cabins celebrates this beloved form of rural design with cabin getaways owned by people who love the outdoors: anglers, hunters, hikers, paddlers, and those who feel most at home when close to nature. A beautifully produced full-color book, this volume showcases cabins small and large, rustic and sophisticated, in all parts of North America, from Maine to Montana, from North Carolina to California. Some have been in a family for generations while others are newly built or completely remodeled. All provide inspiration for living the dream of an active lifestyle, from the perfect setting for a cabin to adapting a structure for fullest enjoyment of the outdoor world, be it near shorelines, woodlands, or mountains. Nineteen homes in all are featured with scores of others pictured in individual photos.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Having stayed in log cabins throughout the U.S., from California to the Carolinas, I thought I had seen it all, but this book is wonderful. Gorgeous pictures and interesting stories. Purchased a copy for myself and as a gift to family members who have their own cabin in Utah. Recommend as a gift not only to anyone who appreciates the architecture, but also for those thinking about building, decorating, or already have their own cabin.
