This Backyard Library Retreat is Basically a Book Lover’s Paradise

In these over-stimulating times, it’s not easy to find a place where you can read a book in total peace.

But, as reported by Mashable, one vacation home in upstate New York houses a little black cabin that’s basically a book-lovers’ dream.

The cabin, built by Studio Padron, is designed as a library and guesthouse and is called Hemmelig Rom — or “secret room” in Norwegian.

It’s kind of like a man-cave or she-shed, but specifically for book lovers.

The cabin is constructed from oak trees that were cut down from the property to make room for the main house and dried in long, rectangular logs. The cabin’s walls are now made up of the logs while the Jenga-like gaps between them form the bookshelves inside.

If reading in the tranquil, isolated forested setting makes you sleepy, there’s a bed nearby.

There’s also an armchair and – a bonus for the writers – a desk as well.

Complete with a wood-burning stove, it looks like the perfect place to snuggle up on a fall Sunday.

In the meantime, if you’re in need of some reading material, here are a few that literary legend Margaret Atwood recommends.
