Amazing Lakeside Family Retreat In Minnesota Feels Like A Summer Camp 

When the owners purchased this former camp property with its existing older structures, they had a vision of creating a primary cabin that would be a place to gather and would connect seamlessly with the site. 

The project team explored several design solutions and decided to renovate the camp’s main cabin building due to its central location, proximity to the lake, and its grand old stone fireplace.

The structure was stripped to its foundation and carefully redesigned and constructed around the original lodge fireplace with crossing timber vaults and expansive windows to the lake.

The spacious screen porch provides a year-round family gathering spot, with windows that allow for screen or glass, depending on the season.

The finished result is a new/old cabin that draws on fresh Scandinavian design influences, timber frame structure, and playful use of color to create a central hub for the next generation at this family camp.

The cabin mixes rustic and contemporary elements that seamlessly blend the re-imagined cabin with the original cabin space and new two-story addition.

The rehabilitated cabin encompasses a living room, dining room, kitchen, and screened porch. The sleeping quarters are tucked into the other living spaces. 

The rebuilt cabin features three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, and just over 3,000 square feet of living space. An abundance of space to accommodate family and friends now and in the future.
