Image of the exterior of the cabin.

modern cabin great room
The 20-foot-tall fireplace is covered with artificial stone that perfectly mimics rocks that can be found near the Wisconsin home.

hearth in the modern cabin
The great room’s 21-foot ceiling lets in plenty of light, but hand-peeled log beams keep the space down to earth.

modern cabin kitchen
A jet-black island and stainless steel appliances provide a nice contrast with the hickory cabinets in the Veras’ cozy kitchen.

modern cabin dining room
The dining area just off the kitchen also has a view of the lake, ensuring that every meal taken in the Veras’ home will also be a feast for the eyes.

cabin breakfast nook
The home’s octagonal dining nook lets warm summer breezes flow while providing a 360-degree view of the lake.

angled cabin loft
Plush upholstered furniture and an unorthodox window scheme (which echoes the one in the great room) make the upstairs loft an ideal place to spend a quiet afternoon.

modern cabin home theater
With its two rows of cushy seats, a high-definition movie screen with surround sound, a custom-made velvet curtain and a popcorn machine, the home’s theater room accurately mirrors the big-screen experience.

modern cabin bedroom
This angled loft bedroom, one of two in the Veras’ house, has a private balcony that overlooks the lake.

sliding glass cabin bedroom
In the master bedroom, slightly distressed wood furniture complements the warm carmel tone of the logs.

modern cabin bathroom
The main master bathroom is nothing if not luxurious, with a whirlpool tub for two, a walk-in shower and a heated tile floor.
