An idyllic Scandinavian influenced cabin built for family fun in Minnesota

This Scandinavian-influenced cabin was reimagined for family getaways by Rehkamp Larson Architects, located on a lake in Minnesota. A much-loved family vacation property was reconstructed to provide for extended family use throughout the seasons and to take better advantage of the lake views.

The rustic cabin is a simple exterior form with complexity on the interior that provides individual functional spaces and connections to the outdoors. The design responds well to the sloped property and makes use of rustic materials on both the interior and exterior, including board and batten siding, stone, galvanized corrugated doors, and wood slats that separate the kitchen from the stairs.

An existing retaining wall was the inspiration for the use of split-face granite on the exterior and fireplace cladding. The dark exterior color helps the home blend into the site from the lake and the road, and the interior makes use of a blend of stained wood and bold colors.

The cabin is full of custom built-ins, storage cabinets, bunk beds, benches, and a cozy sleeping nook, all spaces that create an inviting retreat for family gatherings.

What We Love: This family getaway home offers lakefront living and a fantastic indoor-outdoor connection. Living spaces were created to be warm and welcoming with durable materials that will hold up to a waterside lifestyle. There is plenty of space for entertaining and hosting overnight guests, with comfortable furnishings throughout. We are especially loving the four-season screened porch, perfect for enjoying all year round.
