This striking retreat blends perfectly into its natural setting

To get to this beautiful home in northern Oregon, you must first walk 150 feet from where you park your car, trek through a forest, and then traverse a wooden bridge that leads to the front door. But trust us, the hike is worth it.

Built almost on top of a stunning pond, this remote abode is a dreamy retreat from day-to-day life. The steel-frame house is clad in Douglas fir and has lots of glass walls for viewing the surrounding nature. On hot summer days when the homeowners need to cool off, they can simply open the sliding doors off their living room and dive right into the pond. Talk about summer bliss!
