Secluded cabin retreat on the San Juan Islands with a writer’s cottage

This secluded cabin retreat was designed for a family by architects Hoedemaker Pfeiffer, located on Decatur Island, one of the San Juan Islands in Washington state. Working with a site that had been partially ravaged by logging, the team worked to create both buildings and site.

The retreat is based on the idea of camp and with a desire to encourage engaging nature the bedrooms were separated from the main house. A series of buildings from writer’s cottage, master bedroom cottage, main house, guest house, and pavilion stretch out across a level stretch of topography. A barn and garden anchor the site from above.

What We Love: This secluded cabin retreat provides spaces where everyone can come together as a family while also being able to retreat to small personal spaces. Smaller spaces are connected by a pathway, taking advantage of the tranquil setting of nature. We are especially loving the writer’s retreat, a space to get inspired while enjoying breathtaking views of the surroundings.

Tell Us: What do you think of the design of this family cabin? Would this be your idea of the ultimate place to gather with family and friends? Let us know in the Comments!
