BOUNDARY WATERS RETREAT
This new cabin on Burntside Lake on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness prioritizes views of the water and hearing the loons over large space. At just 2000 s.f. including the remodeled bunkhouse the scale is modest. A screened-in porch provides shelter from mosquitos while the wood burning fireplace forms the focus of the main living space. Dark exterior materials allow this cabin to blend seamlessly with its surroundings. An original outdoor sauna on the edge of the water was remodeled and creates the final piece in a classic iron range north woods experience.
