In a recent Wall Street Journal Mansion section article, ‘The Luxury Log Cabin,’ a spectacular Jackson Hole log cabin is featured front and center.
The piece highlights increasing trends toward the rise of the luxury log cabin primarily in the second home real estate sector. Check the spread photo of a 7k square foot vacation home in Jackson Hole which cost about $3 million to build. This style is nearly ubiquitous in Jackson Hole but as the article explains, the evolution of ‘Abe Lincoln’- era-log homes now finds builders opting for ‘aerie, lighter versions with open layouts’ rather than ‘dark, low slung cabins’ of yesteryear. As the article explores the ups and downs of the trends and comings and goings of cabin life and architecture, it simply concludes the timeless truth that the iconic log cabin (luxury or otherwise) ever remains a ‘great place to have a hot chocolate and burn a fire.’
