Cozy cabin with summer camp vibes on the tranquil coastline of Maine

rustic cabin exterior

Located on the island of North Haven, Maine, this beautiful family summer cabin designed by McBride Architects comprises three interconnected structures nestled into a rugged cliffside. A series of three cabins are perched on the cliffs of Crabtree Point, positioned to make the most of the stunning views of Penobscot Bay, the Camden Hills, and the rugged coastline.

Each cabin cabin harmonizes with the natural surroundings. Much like the island, the interiors seamlessly blend utilitarianism with rustic simplicity. The primary cabin houses a kitchen, living, and dining area, while the secondary cabin serves as the owner’s bedroom suite. The smallest cabin provides a cozy bunkhouse.

The primary cabin, with its post-and-beam structure, exudes the character of a repurposed New England barn, while the open framing and painted plywood floors in the sleeping cabins echo the island’s utilitarian and rustic nature. Together, these cabins provide a timeless experience for family gatherings to build cherished memories.
