Everett Lake Retreat
Architect: Mark Larson
Firm: Rehkamp Larson Architects
Location: Ely, MN
Project Type: New Construction
This all-new cabin is nestled near the edge of the Boundary Waters canoe area in Ely, Minnesota. The building joins the existing bunkhouse, sauna, garage, and other outbuildings on the property. Serving as the main house and central gathering space, the cabin features plenty of room and sleeping space for the homeowner’s large family. Norway pine paneling, Douglas fir posts and beams, and cedar board-on-board siding were all chosen to complement the surroundings. From the details of the cedar siding to the blue and red trim of the Marvin windows, the cabin blends with its surroundings in a contemporary but timeless manner.
