Howlett Home

On the Blackwater, the Howlett’s log cabin is surrounded by five acres of woods. The inviting front porch meets a breezeway on the side that continues to the deck on the back. Inside there’s no dry wall. Ceilings and walls are all pine with contrasting dark beams and dark kitchen cabinets. The couple worked in foreign locations, acquiring many treasures. The resulting style is “rustic meets exotic.”  Note the homeowner’s Marine memorabilia and mounted hunting trophies. Count the many bear decorations you find.
