Set along the water’s edge, where a brook meets a small lake, this 1,000-square-foot off-grid cabin is a slice of heaven. Functionally and aesthetically, the cabin’s design embraces its natural surroundings—and its locally sourced hemlock cladding nods to the area’s lumber traditions.

The two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath cabin in Nova Scotia serves as a vacation getaway for a couple.

Inside, the cabin is outfitted simply with white-painted drywall, light hardwood floors, black metal window frames, and a wood stove. Sleek furnishings in light wood, gray, and black echo the structure’s architectural details.

The minimalist interior allows Mother Nature to take center stage—floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the main living space frame views of the woods and nearby lake. 

Light-wood flooring and furnishings warm up the black-and-white interior.
