Saint Croix River Cabin

Secluded cliffside cabin in the woods

Located on a wooded cliff overlooking the Saint Croix National Scenic Riverway, this new second residence in western Wisconsin includes a cabin, pool, and pool house. The design incorporates stone, wood, glass, and a planted wildflower roof woven into the site’s existing topography, old stone walls, and trees. Tucked into the hillside, the horizontal main level houses large indoor/outdoor living spaces, the master bedroom, and utility functions. Used by the client’s grandchildren and other guests, the tower acts as a bunkhouse with sleeping platforms—each with its own window—on four different levels within a single vertical space. Natural materials and dark colors, combined the planted roof and site design, camouflage the cabin, while offering spectacular views of the river from the site and cabin.
