The exterior is painted dark brown, a color similar to that of the forest trees which allows it to blend in and disappear into the landscape. The interior only has one space of generous dimensions. It’s a warm and elegant room and the separate attic spaces serve as bedrooms/sleeping areas. Outside, an elevated wood path offers easy access to the cabin and stays above the accumulating snow.
