What’s more inclusive of nature than a cabin? Whether it’s a restored old family place or a brand new structure, a cabin sums up everything that living in nature is all about. Here are a few of my favorite cabins:

A contemporary cabin in the woods with all the modern conveniences, including a pool? Count me in. Hudson Woods by Lang Architecture is my kind of roughing it.

The charred spruce¬†exterior — using a Japanese technique called shou sugi ban — of this Alaskan Modernist cabin is nothing short of breathtaking-which completely suits the equally breathtaking natural surroundings.

This Washington state retreat, which I’ve dubbed Camp Indianola, has all the right touches and a pared-back style that includes exposed log beams, integrated stone walls, and even an antler chandelier. Who needs more than that?

Embracing nature at home comes in two forms: incorporating more time outdoors in your lifestyle, and bringing elements found outside inside. The Lakemoore Drive house is a great example of a place where it’s easy to do both. With its terrific Palm Springs style, a back yard made for outdoor living, and use of natural stone interiors, you may just fall in love with it like I did:
