Main Cabin

Architecture by Bosworth Hoedemaker
Interior Design by Garret Cord Werner

This San Juan Islands retreat is based on the idea of camp. It provides places to come together as a family and ways of retreating into small personal spaces. A main house has four public spaces arranged along a central axis – the kitchen, dining room, living room, and den. Behind these more generous spaces are a fireplace inglenook, mud room, laundry, office, and bath. Other buildings in the compound include a master cabin, writer’s hut, guest cabin, barn, and picnic shelter. With the exception of the barn, the buildings are located along a contour of the sloped site and connected between and through the buildings by a continuous path.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kathryn added this to Best Rooms for Rainy Days
Any room that has a fireplace is a good room to be in when it's rainy and wet outside! Light a fire in the bedroom and spend time with your lover or light one in the family room and get out the board games.
The Lettered Cottage added this to Lodge Love: 7 Ways to Land the Look
This room is Cozy with a capital C! Sleeping fireside, surrounded by wood and stone would be such a wonderful experience.
Becky Harris added this to Storing the Logs Indoors
This is the woodsiest, coziest room around. The logs are slyly tucked underneath the hearth.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Craving Cozy
What's your idea of cozy? Do you have a favorite spot where you steal away to on a cold winter night?
Jonathan Baker added this to The Gentleman Cellar: Anti-Man Cave
Not every manly space can have such an iconic fireplace, but a few subtleties that surround it are easily adaptable. The wood is not only stored on the hearth, it's also stored keenly underneath it. The folded blanket is left out for use, and the pillow—while bright—sticks with the theme.
Alison Aves added this to Houzz Tour: San Juan Islands Retreat
Hoedemaker calls this a fireplace inglenook. "[It] was designed to be both a fireplace and a room," he explains. "And the location of the room centers on the dining room, offering the warmth and ambiance of the fire when dining."
Shawn Gauthier added this to Great Seating: Cozy Up to the Fireplace
Can you get much cozier than this built-in bench near the fire? I can see many hours lost with a great book in this snug space.
Michelle Fries, BeDe Design, LLC added this to 10 Ways to Get the Rustic Cabin Look
Focus on the fireplace. So much of what happens at the cabin is centered around the fireplace. Be original with the stone. To create a tumbled, organic look, have your stone mason recess the grout so that the fireplace looks to be dry stacked. A raised hearth creates extra seating and a place to store firewood. Next to a roaring fire is also a great place to sneak in a bed.
