Chris’ Choice…Room of the Week

Adirondack Ambiance

Even though log cabins date back to the earliest days of our country, when settlers used timber from the wilderness to build their homes, many homeowners today carry on the tradition of building log cabins, while of course adding all the modern conveniences! For those of us who don’t have a home with the old-time feeling of a cabin, sometimes it’s nice to get away and get in touch with our more adventurous side. That’s why the log cabin, one of many luxurious themed rooms at Twin Farms Inn in Barnard Vermont, is so popular. Designed by Jed Johnson & Associates, guests are greeted by a wood-burning fireplace, gingham curtains, and plenty of canine-inspired accessories. Fun, whimsical, and perfectly appointed, this is an inn I’d love to visit again! Read more about Twin Farms at their website here: http://www.twinfarms.com/

If this is what it means to be ‘in the doghouse’ then it can’t be all bad! The bark-covered log bed is softened with a tufted velvet headboard. Comfortable upholstered pieces make it easy to kick your feet up and relax! Photo © Nancy E. Hill

A hallway fitted with built-in drawers and cupboards doubles as a dressing room. The drawer handles are fashioned to look like dog biscuits. Even the hand-made rug goes with the dog motif! Photo © Nancy E. Hill

Dog statues even line the mantle. You can’t help but see them and smile! Photo © Nancy E. Hill
