Beautiful New England cabin designed for relaxing lakeside getaways


This gorgeous New England cabin was designed as a vacation retreat by TMS Architects, located on the shores of Silver Lake, in Madison, New Hampshire. The intent of this home was to enjoy summer getaways and ski trips. A spacious layout offers features one would wish for in a vacation home, which was designed to take advantage of the breathtaking water views. The main house can comfortably host up to 12 guests, with an overflow guest suite designed above the garage. On the first floor of this cabin, an open plan design features an eat-in kitchen, spacious dining area and living room with a stone clad fireplace.

The kitchen boasts an expansive island, ample cabinet storage and a pantry. Outdoors, a large patio that faces the lake is easily accessible from the main living area or the master bedroom suite. Adjacent to the living room is a den, which includes a TV/reading nook with a built-in entertainment stand. On the second floor you will find three bedrooms — one of which is a bunk room — and a large bathroom. Have a look below to view the rest of this incredible New England cabin…

The primary composition of the home is built around a neutral color palette and rustic fixtures and features. A chicken wire orb light was selected for the living room, while a translucent Capiz shell light illuminates the dining area. Globe lights can be found throughout the stair and TV/reading nook areas. Above the kitchen island is a pendant trio with antique nickel shades. The kitchen cabinetry is comprised of a rustic French country matte finish with chicken wire panel doors and dark bronze hardware.






The architects assisted the homeowners with their furniture selections of this cabin retreat. This included a slipcovered sofa in an indigo blue outdoor fabric, along with two spindle chairs in a soft blue stripe in the living room. They also incorporated some of the homeowner’s personal photos in the living room from a family trip they had previously taken to Antelope Canyon — Page, Arizona (a unique sandstone slot canyon that is highly photographed by professional photographers). The photos were printed on canvas and stretched to a custom size.



Above: In the master bedroom retreat, the architects carried through the black and white natural feel into the rug. The black four-poster bed was custom made in Maine. The roman shade fabric with a black and white ticking stripe embodies a quintessential New England feel with a modern twist. A playful carved wood dresser, along with a rattan side chair and ottoman were added to complete the room.


Above: The master bathroom and half bath both contain natural slate tiles with a tumbled edge finish and brushed brass fixtures.


Above: The second-floor bedrooms are simplistic with natural fiber wool/sisal rugs and natural fiber roman shades. The bunk room has six built-in beds, each with a reading light. The garage contains a one-bedroom guest suite with a private bathroom and storage space for canoes and skis.




Above: The second-floor bathroom features larger, white subway tiles with a large format gray porcelain tile and a navy blue double sink cabinet.
