On their website, Janice shares that her affection for Maine started when she was growing up as she spent most of her summer holidays there. Sean, on the other hand, immediately liked what he saw the first time they visited the place together as a couple.
They collaborated with Pete Long (who designed the original Ravenhouse Cabin) and MWHoss Construction to bring Cozy Rock Cabin to life. It is not the typical log cabin that you might imagine.
The Cozy Rock Cabin certainly fits the definitive description of a cabin in the woods – it is rustic and, as its name suggests, it is cozy. In fact, it has enough space for a small family of four to enjoy a relaxing vacation.
Its steep gabled roof is a prominent architectural feature that immediately catches your attention. The shiplap wood siding is painted in Iron Gray by James Hardie. A front patio allows outdoor seating as well as an open grass yard.
The cabin bistro lights allow you to stay outside longer in the evening. You may want to take a dip in the outdoor hot tub or simply linger around the Breeo fire pit to keep toasty warm on a Maine autumn night.
All of the cabin’s interior is made from pine. A molasses-colored West Elm Urban leather sofa fits snugly against one wall of the living room while a West Elm Brushed Herringbone throw in dark horseradish casually drapes over one arm.
Facing the sofa is a Masaya Amador rocking chair as well as a Fedler 16-inch round pouf ottoman. A West Elm pebble outdoor coffee table completes the sitting area, which is separated from the rest of the space by a light-colored beige woven rug.
The kitchen has all the amenities that make meal preparation and dining a simple joy: a full-sized two-door refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, stove, and oven. The wood-topped kitchen island serves as a bonus space-saving hub for solo or group activities.
A queen-sized bed fits perfectly in the master bedroom, with enough room to spare for a wooden rocking chair stationed nearby. The walls, painted in grayish dark navy blue (Cyberspace by Sherwin Williams) come alive with the illumination from the bedside and ceiling lamps as well as the contrast provided by the daylight coming in through the large door-sized glass windows.
The walk-in shower in the bathroom features both a handheld telephone shower as well as a rainfall shower head. The hotel-style bathroom washbasin lends a touch of luxury to the cabin-in-the-woods experience. The Lux Lighting USA bathroom vanity wall sconce above the round mirror provides not only illumination but also a sense of airiness and comfort.
A loft above the bedroom serves as additional sleeping space. Although a portion of the wall is painted in Snowbound by Sherwin Williams, a cool crisp white color with a hint of gray undertone, the rest of the walls, ceiling, and floor are left in natural pine.
Other than for sleeping, the loft can serve as a gathering place for family bonding or simply for some quiet time spent reading a book from the triangular bookshelf filled with books recommended by people during a giveaway that the couple did on their Instagram account.
This 750-square-foot cabin, nestled in the woods in Freeport, Maine, can be rented through Airbnb.
