Quaint and charming, this log cabin could have been plucked straight out of a fairy tale. The vaulted living room beckons guests to sink into a stuffed couch and enjoy a good novel by the flickering of a cozy fire or to watch the wildlife passing by the windows. Log stairs lead up to a 304 sq. ft. loft bedroom, outfitted with optional log rafters and dormer windows that give the space a roomier feel—plus a little extra light for early rising and lazy lounging. This all comes with a happy ending too, since this picture-perfect cottage is constructed of western red cedar, which enhances its resistance to decay and insects.
