Located only a few miles from town this log cabin dates back 150 years. Built by your host's great grandfather, the log cabin was recently moved to it's new home from the family home-place just a half mile away. The original log cabin is small-a fachwerk addition was added during the restoration. A German style wire fence and gate border the house and yard along with a windmill to create a feeling of days-gone-by.
The wrap around porch begins at the front of the house and goes around to the back overlooking fields and pastures. Inside the living room is the original log cabin. A comfortable sofa (queen-size sleeper) and array of antiques are found. Watch your head as you enter the kitchen through the original log cabin door leading into the kitchen. Stained etched cement floors are found throughout the house. The kitchen provides a coffeebar with a sink, microwave, small refrigerator and coffeemaker
The distinctive bathroom has rustic cabinets with a leaf print designed sink. Unusual green tiles top the countertop and line the large shower. Interesting features include rope used as molding to join the walls and ceiling and designs of trees and animals on the cabinets and woodwork.
A vaulted ceiling with natural woods showcases the magnificent handcrafted cedar post queen-size bed. To add to the charm and romance enjoy the wood fireplace, accented with a turn of the century mantle, is found next to the bed. From the bed the open room looks at the whirlpool tub in the adjacent room. The whirlpool tub is rocked with limestone and has a majestic framed mirror on the wall overlooking the tub. Rock floors have a wet, shiny look creating a wonderful glow. Providing a view of the woods and a seasonal creek is a glass door that opens outside onto the back porch.
