Space 3,500 sq. ft.
Property type house

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Max. 10 people allowed))

This is a 3 story 3500 Sq.Ft. log home on 40 acres backing to State Land, in a beautiful remote area, yet easily accessible as it is right on Hwy 1.

The kitchen/dining area is quite large, but has minimal counter space. There is, however, a large two-sided commercial sink that's very useful, and also an awesome commercial Wolf range/oven! There are two medium-size refrigerators, and a large Amish wood-burning cookstove and oven (this is the only heating source for the house - firewood provided).

The living room on the 2nd floor has large 2 story picture windows looking out over farmland and mountains. Elk and white tail deer are a common sight. The view is really gorgeous!!

There's no place we'd rather be this side of Heaven!! ...We are there as much as possible for our own personal getaways, and also use it for family gatherings and small Christian retreats.

We stayed in the cabin for a week. It was a great place to stay for us and we were sad to leave. Our kids just loved it. Lots of room, everything was provided, and it was very quiet. We saw lots of wildlife and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. If we were ever to go back, we would stay again. The owner had great communication and was very helpful. This is a GREAT value!

About Beth Farrar

We love peaceful, remote places that are easy to get to. This property fit the bill perfectly! We love the peacefulness of this area, the views, the rustic feeling of the house, and the people in this area --- pretty much everything!

Beth Farrar purchased this house in 2005
