When the natural materials used to construct a log home cabin have the opportunity to settle into their surroundings, it produces the appealing details which perfectly complement the back-to-basics lifestyle.
This log home retreat is located on a beautiful private peninsula in Bay Lake, Minnesota. It was originally constructed in the 1930s and was lovingly restored by A & H Architecture to preserve the rustic charm yet modernize the layout to improve general living conditions, the natural light, and to maximize the stunning lake views.
The great room manages to remain cozy despite the high ceiling. The use of high-quality materials serves to earth the building, giving it a warm and inviting feel.
The high ceiling ensures the home benefits from plenty of circulating fresh air. The commanding fireplace reaches all the way to the ceiling, creating a rustic anchor to the main living area of the house.
The quaint porch is perfect for those who enjoy the peace and quiet. What a relaxing place to see the day change to night – perfect!
To really capture the best of the log home lifestyle, you need to be surrounded by nature. Bay Lake Lodge boasts a stunning location directly on a lake.
