Sometimes the busy-ness of life in a big city has me wishing I could get back to nature - or at the very least, come home to a place that feels like a woodsy retreat. Rustic touches, cozy details, and the warmth of wood make these homes feel like a special getaway, no matter their location. Looking at these photos, I can almost hear the fire crackling and smell the chestnuts roasting.
