History, romance, quiet and adventure are requirements when staying at this special log cabin. The log portion of the home was built in the 1850’s and even has a display of the original mortar used in the building of the cabin. The rock kitchen and bedroom were added at later dates. Your hosts added the bathroom. Although the log cabin was home to early settlers, the past 50 plus years it has been used as a working barn. Your hosts and their family worked for three years to make the guest house the special place it is today.
The long front rock porch is typical of the 1800s and leads into the log cabin. Comfort is found in the log cabin with it antique couch and chair placed to enjoy the TV/VCR. Many replicas found on the property and in the walls of the house are now displayed in shadow boxes and other locations in the cabin.
In the bedroom is a dresser and bed was handcrafted in Germany. Topped with a quilt, the bed sits fashionably high off the floor. An armoire for hanging clothes is an old family heirloom. Adjacent to the bedroom is the bath where you can enjoy a luxurious bath in the large whirlpool tub. The kitchen has an antique wood burning stove which has been converted to electric having 2 burners (no oven). A small refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffeemaker are also provided. Dishes are in the old pie safe. Outside stairs (very steep) lead to a small attic style bedroom with two twin beds (great for children).
Outside is a special treat! Your hosts have taken every precaution for guests to enjoy their stay. Behind the house is a picnic table, a swing and a grill. An adjoining undeveloped part of the structure has a display of antique tools. A clawfoot bathtub that really works—(cold water only) stands in the area which was used for horse stalls. If you like to fishing bring your pole! A pond is located within walking distance of the guest house and you are welcome to try your luck at fishing. This is a working ranch, but you are welcome to walk in the fenced areas or along the road and enjoy nature at its best. Hunting season begins the first weekend in November until the middle of January—this is an important time to be very, very careful!
By making a reservation with a pet, I agree to the Gästehaus Schmidt pet policy.
