A den and large loft with cathedral ceilings give warmth and an 'up north' ambiance to this full log home. The great room features a natural stone fireplace and is open to the dining and bar area. Two dining areas w/canopy looking out to large lawn for entertaining and summer fun. Much of the lakes shoreline is dedicated to a state park, which makes it a sanctuary for wildlife.
