This cabin sits 1000 m above the ocean, high in the mountain, and close to the ski slopes. It reflects the terrain’s contours beautifully, making comfortable and spacious rooms for the large family when the holiday comes. Supported by the warm interiors, the family will feel more comfortable in winter seasons.

The roof of the cabin is clad in larch wood, as well as the cabin facades. For the cabin whole interior, oak wood is used to create a warm feeling in every room of the cabin. Besides the warm feeling, this kind of wood also can beautify the interior in a unique way. It makes this cabin looks more interesting from the inside.
