The restored home includes five bedrooms, three bathrooms, and ample space to enjoy country life. Featuring central heat and AC, year-round comfort is everyday living.

We believe this portion is the front section towards the county road. Several additions of other vintage cabins have been assembled to include approximately 3649 square feet of living space. The home's logs appear to be oak, poplar, and pine. The logs are all dovetail corners and are hand-hewn vintage from the late 1700s into the mid-1800s. The origins of the additional log homes are unknown at this time; however, it is typical for such a building to be disassembled and moved from the local area. The home features four beautiful stone fireplaces and two stone chimneys. Currently, the fireplaces are used for burning propane gas. Expert craftsmen have assembled the log home to make an outstanding home, lodge, or Airbnb destination. ENTRY LEVEL The entry-level of the home features large, inviting covered porches on the front, mid-section, kitchen, and northern sides. These porches are designed to allure you to enjoy the beautiful rustic countryside of Wild and Wonderful Pendleton and Grant Counties. As you enter the home from the front covered porch, you step back in time to the frontier days by entering a large open great room with a large stone fireplace and with hearth. The flooring in this room is vintage wide plank heart pine flooring. The windows are six over six panes. The room is illuminated by natural window light and by two hanging fixtures. From the Great Room, one of the two doorways leads to the central foyer with fifteen feet tall height to the second story. Here in the foyer is a beautiful easy-step staircase with a simple vintage design and carved walnut newel posts. The stair treads are vintage pine boards. The foyer features an entrance door from one of the four covered porches. From the foyer, access to a large utility room can be entered straight head. The foyer has a hallway closet for storage and is in a modern 200-amp breaker box. The laundry room includes a stainless-steel multi-purpose sink, a Maytag, and an LG washer and dryer. The laundry room has an entry door to the smallest of the four covered exterior covered porches. The laundry room features vintage wide plank heart pine walls and a textured finished ceiling. Between the laundry room and study is a bath with a shower stall. The study is an open room with contemporary pine shelves and cabinets as you pass through the study doorway, which leads into an enclosed L-shaped sunroom filled with abundant natural light. The sunroom features tile floors. From this room is a large "family room," or what has been used as a working farm office that features hand-hewn log walls with hardwood oak flooring. This room includes a supplemental electric stove for heating. Also, downstairs, located off the foyer and beside the kitchen, is a bonus room with sliding patio doors to the back-covered porch looking at the swimming pool. The bonus room features a full-size custom-built solid oak offset cabinet on one wall with large glass doors sitting over a lower section over drawers with raised panel doors lower storage space. The kitchen undoubtedly is one of the highlights of the home. The kitchen is large and open with an island and has two entry doors from each side.
