Tucked away on 1,200 acres of farmland and hunting grounds is this imposing vacation hunting lodge.
A unique hunting lodge indeed, this retreat melds rustic finishes with outstanding amenities for the best of both worlds.
The rear elevation demonstrates the expansive outdoor living space on both the upper and lower levels.
The lodge carport, preferred by the owner instead of a garage, houses the charming yet practical bright blue truck.
This 7,501 sq. ft. vacation hunting lodge greets visitors with exceptional hospitality in a massive great room on the main upper level. A soaring 16′ vaulted pine plank ceiling is accented with timbers reclaimed from the owners’ retail establishments. The rustic wood plank floors, and alder pine doors are offset by a touch of modern in the chandeliers and cable railings.
A second seating area in the spacious great room offers an outstanding view of the 1,200 acres of property including a genteel lake. Antler chandeliers extend the rustic theme of the lodge to the 1,000 sq. ft. outdoor living space.
Open to the great room are the kitchen and dining area. Anything but rustic, the kitchen features a massive 5’x10’ marble-look quartz island. The well-equipped kitchen is designed with antiqued cabinetry, concealed walk-in pantry, and Wolf® gas stove.
Sliding doors extend into the dining and kitchen area, offering a seamless and delightful view of the property. Adjacent to the kitchen is the wine room with a stacked stone feature wall, butcher block counter, ice maker, wine cooler, and wine bins with drawer fronts masterfully repurposed from wine crates.
The entry is reminiscent of an English country home, sporting a stacked stone feature wall, a view of the antler chandelier on the outside landing, and a double entry door crafted from alder wood.
Rustic flooring and trim in the master bathroom is offset with luxurious refinements including a free-standing tub, oversized shower, and beaded chandelier.
The double sink vanity is topped with granite, and flanked by twin towers, all providing ample storage space, while keeping with the rustic nature of the lodge.
On the lower level is a complete two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment with this charming, yet fully equipped kitchen. The gas stove is bordered with open shelving.
After a day of sport, the outdoor living area offers relaxation at its finest. At the far end of the 1,000 sq. ft. upper level balcony is this seating area with a stacked stone fireplace, television, antler chandeliers, and fans that offer subtle breezes. Remote-controlled screen enclosures seal off the entire space from harsh sun and insects.
