Comfortable cabins set in nature’s lap are indeed a great way to spend a memorable holiday and definitely help when it comes to escaping the hustle and the rush of the monotonous city life. And while traditionally the mental image of a cabin set in a lush green outback is of a structure clad and crafted out of wood the Swinomish Indian Reserve cabin breaks away from that trend. This dramatically distinct cabin has been clad largely in glass and pretty much looks like one giant ‘glass house’ which enables you to stay connected with nature at all times.

And few have achieved this better than Melissa Collison over the past few years.
