A Northern Idaho Cabin With Valley Views

This cozy home combines square milled log walls with detailed timber trusses—framing stunning views of the nearby river and mountains.

This hybrid log-and-timber home in northern Idaho lends a modern feel to an age-old architectural tradition. Its oversized custom windows, square-log walls with dovetail corners, and golden-hued Douglas fir timber trusses flood the home with natural light and set the stage for incredible views of the valley and mountains beyond.

Multiple roof lines add interest to the exterior, along with beautiful quarried architectural Paradise Mountain Mahogany stone, which is echoed in the great room’s fireplace. The love for the outdoors is further underscored by a detached outdoor living space and a wrap-around covered porch—with a firepit just beyond—perfect for relaxing and entertaining.

The 3,120-square-foot single-story layout boasts two bedrooms, three bathrooms, and the universal design principles for a forever home, including an open floor plan, minimal hallways, and wide doorways, making this cozy cabin the perfect spot to age-in-place—and with vistas like these, who’d ever want to leave?
