This cozy cabin provides a wonderful retreat in the mountains of Wyoming

This spectacular mountain modern cabin retreat was conceived by Design Associates Architects, nestled into the hillside in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. For this getaway home, the owner wanted a small log cabin vibe that would be spacious enough to accommodate his sibling’s families. Essentially, he aimed to encapsulate the cozy, summer camp feel while integrating guest rooms, sunlit spaces, and modern finishes.

With some creativity, the design team was able to bring this vision to life. Upon arriving at this home, one would think that this was an authentic log cabin. However, upon closer examination, one can see that the cabin’s exterior “logs” are, in fact, siding designed to mimic the appearance of rounded timbers—minus the burdensome maintenance that typically accompanies them.

What We Love: This cabin retreat in Wyoming provides a wonderful respite for the owners and their sibling’s families. With a mix of frame construction and log accents and siding, this home has all the feels of a log cabin without a high level of maintenance. We especially love the great room, with its soaring ceilings, large windows framing idyllic views, and stone-clad fireplace. Overall, the project team did a wonderful job of creating a cozy cabin feel with all of the modern-day conveniences.

On the ceiling, large timber trusses were designed as flitch plate trusses — blending steel with wood to impart a contemporary, industrial edge.
