Overlooking the Hood Canal, the Coyle Cabins are a Washington retreat with Danish roots. Clean lines and simple forms dominate the three gabled structures that make up the residence. The dark cedar exterior cladding is contrasted on the interior by white walls, natural pine floors, and light wood trim. The two main compartments are separated by public and private areas, while the site's original building has been renovated into a bunk house — each providing their own unique views of the landscape. A series of French doors offer direct access to the outdoors, as well as constant views of the dense Douglas fir forest, the harbor, and the surrounding Olympic Mountains.
