For many the Work From Home culture has been more like a “live at work” experience. And while Zoom meetings, Facetiming, texting, DMing, and social media kept us connected during a year of stressful separation, the freedom to safely gather in person has us daydreaming about where we can get away to next.
This is why we’re “logging off” with three cabin-inspired retreats. Each is perfect for gatherings large and small and outside the hustle and bustle of Seattle’s metro area but still within a convenient drive. From the Cascade foothills to a mountainside escape, and back around to a sprawling estate along the Cedar River, these homes beg for a disconnected lifestyle—or at least an offline afternoon.

The warmth and workmanship in this log home are breathtaking: the great room is the heart of this special property, with vaulted ceilings, walls of windows, and natural finishes. Ascend to the loft area or move to the open dining with a fireplace framed by gorgeous stone. The chef’s kitchen delights, as stylish stone accents meet an island with seating, surrounded by fabulous appliances. Entertaining is easy, as the main level unfolds to a covered outdoor area, deck, and hot tub. A main floor primary suite stands as the retreat one craves at the day’s end, with a sitting area, wood stove, and sumptuous en suite bath. Two additional beds upstairs. Almost 10 acres of rolling land ready for exploration and adventure!
