Located in a sunny clearing, deep in a primordial redwood forest along the Russian River in California, this classic 1963 A-frame retreat typifies mid-century modern architecture. The lofty interior is made cozy by the use of rich wood and earth tones. Walls of glass look out to one of the most beautiful forests in northern California. A low-profile deck welcomes visitors, and an additional deck on the other side of the cabin has a dining area and a hot tub. Vacationers to this area enjoy ocean beaches, river activities and Sonoma County’s famous wine country.
