Cabin Style Homes in Washington DC Metro Area

Is there a real estate market for cabins in Washington Metro? Sure there is but it's a niche, not a staple. For many, the term cabin conjures images of camping, ski resorts or summer retreats. In the metropolitan area, cabins are much the same as anywhere else – often modest, tucked into woodsy settings, perhaps near a body of water. There's even a community called Cabin John in Maryland although the legend of the name varies. Some believe it was a misspelling of Capt. John and others equate it with a story known as The Cabin of John. Regardless, the community is now quite affluent although it's certainly woodsy and near the water and yes, there's even some actual cabins there.

Historically, we think of cabins in the traditional log form, going back to the earliest settler days and continuing on during the expansion west. There's no shortage of stories both true and fictional – the log cabin that Abraham Lincoln was born in or the setting for characters in early American literature. More recently, the architectural form soared to new heights, especially in states like Denver and Utah where giant luxury log cabins were all the craze for a few years.

Cabin Style Homes in Washington DC Are there no luxury cabins in DC Metro? Sure there are. A five-bedroom affair with two stone fireplaces and an eight-stall horse barn is currently on the market in Brookeville, MD, listed for $880,000. On the other hand, some cabins are valued more for locale than what they represent as homes. A modest one-bedroom cabin on 6.23 prime acres in Great Falls, VA recently went pending for over a million dollars.

During the 2008-09 national real estate downturn, the secondary home market became one of the hardest-hit sectors. Vacation homes are usually considered luxury items and there simply isn't the same demand during tough economic times. Cabin sales took a hit in popular locations such as Cape Cod, Big Bear in California or Sun Valley, Idaho. To a measurable extent, the real estate market in Washington Metro wasn't as adversely affected as other parts of the country. Still, cabins sales lagged behind other home styles for a period of time. That has changed – once again they're in demand and inventory is tight. Cabins listings do exist but you might have to look a little harder these days.
