Gulf Island Cabins by Osburn Clarke

We’re guessing you probably have no idea where the Gulf Islands of British Columbia are located; but doesn’t that make it an awesome vacation destination? Whether you’re looking to unplug, detox, cleanse, purify, chill, or just hide from “Big Tony,” this is a great place to do it, and we’ve found just the place to call your own for a few days.

Nestled nicely in the woods while overlooking the water, these four cabins designed by Osburn Clarke are a tranquil mix of modern features with traditional aesthetics. A battery system is charged from solar panels and powers a low-voltage LED lighting system. The innovation continues when it rains as well, as water is collected from the roof. When the summer rental season is over, the buildings are shut down with an exterior shutter system. No conference calls allowed here.
