Trips to the cabin are not always this quiet. A lower level holds two small bedrooms for Alexandra and Jonathan, as well as extra rooms for overnight guests. “It’s the genius of the design,” says Harry. “When it’s the two of us, we just use the upper level and there’s no echoing emptiness. Or there can be six of us here and it doesn’t feel like too many people.”
Whether it’s just the couple or a crowd, though, the agenda remains pretty much the same: kayaking, beachcombing, foraging for mushrooms, even oyster farming (they’re expecting their first harvest this summer). The dwelling may be modern, but it’s a cabin life.
