Here’s a prescription for your cabin fever: architect Dale Mulfinger’s new book, “Back to the Cabin.”
Mulfinger takes readers on a tour of 37 getaways, both old and new. Among them is the cabin in northern Minnesota that he and his wife share with another couple.
These are not grand vacation homes, but rather simple getaways that fit Mulfinger’s rule that a cabin be modest, include shared social spaces and have an open, relaxed atmosphere.
There’s a cabin made from an old barn, a cabin with an observation tower, a factory-built modular cabin and a cabin made from shipping containers. There are cabins on lakes, in the mountains and even one in a suburban back yard.
“Back to the Cabin” is published by the Taunton Press and sells for $34.95 in hardcover.
