  1. My favorite design feature of the MASTER SUITE is the TUB location. What a treat to be able to relax in warm soapy water while looking at the SUN set over lake Hamilton.

  2. What is there not to like in the master suite? Love the window seat with the view of all views and to top it off, the master suite is situated right next to a potential reading area paradise for book lovers.

    • The only negative comment I have heard so far regarding the MASTER SUITE is that the closet is small and is not configured to hang dresses. I love when the DW breaks out those SUMMER DRESSES so I would need to tweak the master closet just a tad. :D

    • You are right about the closet—though the closet is small, the view is so vast—a little tweaking is so worth the view. There might be some space elsewhere to place a free standing wardrobe closet.

    • I think there's somewhere else to put the extra clothes, I also agree with the idea of a free standing wardrobe, shouldn't be too tough. :-)

    • The MBR isn't very big but the window benches give some extra space. The closet is tiny. :)

      I think I woulld use some of the space in the sitting area to bump the closet back about 2 ft. That shoulldn't be a big issue. :)

  3. The custom-built window seat in the Master Suite is my favorite feature– I would just love to sit there and read books with my daughter!

    Adrianne B on August 8, 2014 at 9:42 am
    • :) Have to agree with you—that would be a wonderful place to read books to young ones, children and grandchildren alike:) One could even author some books there:)

  5. The blog cabin master suite is a total getaway retreat! Perhaps my favorite spot would be to curl up on the cushy white lounge chair in the corner of the bedroom and survey the beautiful surroundings. I might sit there and wonder if the sliding bookcase secret doorway had a safe hand hold for opening from the bedroom side. I guess I would have to pop out of my comfy chair and go investigate.

  6. Retreat! When we went to visit our great aunt and uncle, as kids, my uncle would have a meal with us and then RETREAT to their back bedroom. I'm not saying we were rambunctious or anything, he would just leave. I can imagine a quiet place for Grandma or Grandpa to retreat to when needed. The funny part that would get to the youngest of children, is the hidden door in the bookcase. It would make them wonder where'd they go? My DH has said he wanted a sitting room within a master suite. We're coffee and tea type people so an upstairs suite suits us. All the views of the lake from the upstairs rooms magnificent! The vaulted ceiling in the bedroom IS another feature that I appreciate. (Not that I jump on the bed and need space so I don't hit my head.) The headboard may seriously get many post it notes. I've sewn some fishing themed pillow cases and I was worried that might keep us awake thinking of fishing…can't imagine what that headboard might do. lol As for the spa tub….how many of you saw how the water that may go over the edge is caught by that additional lip……ahhhhhh

    I think the special prize should be duplicated… definitely needs to be at the boat house. This way, when telling all the fish catching stories, the fishing master, can elaborate where this one was caught and got away. lol

  7. OK….new question that will make people LAUGH… much privacy are in those windows? I just started thinking if one might want to jump on the bed….Yep, concerned about the windows. BTW….loved the prairie frame style windows. They won't break the view of the lake.

  8. I love the "secret shelving doors" do get into the bedroom from the sitting area. That is awesome. I also have to say that I love how they still used the old word work design. The live edge book shelf is amazing too.

  9. I love the window seat! What a great place to seat down and read a magazine. I can see myself seating there just putting on my shoes and enjoying the beautiful view through the window. Love i!

  10. There is so much to love about the master suite! It's so unique and beautiful! I love how the head board makes the home a true piece of Lake Hamilton, even though it didn't start its life in that location. What a brilliant idea!

    TwoCorgis on August 8, 2014 at 10:10 am
    • When we go fishing, we take maps of the lake (laminated of course), to know where we want to go and where we've been. I agree the head board is quite awesome!

      I still hope there's a third copy at the boat house.
