1. Exterior of the home nestled in the woods

This home in the woods is an excellent choice for a fall or winter getaway! We love the deck space and covered porch outside. That glazing and sloped roof mean there’s a big bright space inside the home. A lovely place to escape to and enjoy the glories of nature.

The interior

A look inside shows off a bright interior. The views of green trees outside is stunning! We love the light wood on the walls and floors that give the space a modern cabin feel.

2. A modern getaway

This home has striking modern style. The floor to ceiling windows open up the main floor beautifully. The balcony upstairs is just begging for us to sit there with our coffees in the morning to watch the sunrise!

And now for the view…

Here’s that incredible view from the balcony we love so much. It’s so nice to have a getaway by the water. What an inspiring home to relax and refresh yourself.

3. A fairytale house

This house is unreal. It looks like it’s taken straight from a fairytale. The house has a classic shape and is built with wood. The stone wall outside gives the property an old-world charm and the nearby pond is perfect to sit beside on a lazy afternoon .

Warm cozy interior

Looking inside we can see the gorgeous wood interior. A modern bone white fireplace is in the centre of the attention, providing cozy heat in the winter. Imagine this house in the snow, it would look like a darling gingerbread home!

4. A home in the hills

Stepping inside we can see sleek charcoal tiled floor and wonderful wood beams that give the home character and depth. The space looks upscale yet rustic.

7. A mini chalet

This is the light version of a chalet getaway! This darling small home has gabled roofs and a wrap-around style porch out front. We love the tree integrated into the style of the home.
