About the Property
Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)
The Wildwood Chalet was the original ice house built in 1929. Although years of neglect had taken its toll on the structure, the owners lovingly restored and converted it to an incredible lakeside get-away that sits just a few feet from the water's edge and offers spectacular lake views.
The Chalet has wonderful hardwood and slate floors, a whirlpool tub in the bath, 3 sets of sliding doors that open to a lake side deck with a log bar to enjoy your morning coffee or evening drink. There is a main floor bunk room that sleeps 6 and a loft bedroom with a queen sized bed. The cathedral ceiling and huge windows offer incredible lake views! You also have a full kitchen, gas fireplace, gas grill, private fire pit and you are steps away from the beach.
The Looney Bin Cabin was the original owners's garage built in 1931. It too has been completely renovated and now offers luxury accommodations for up to 7 guests.
The Anglers Cabin was once a log garage before being converted in 2013 to a rustically elegant guest cabin. The cabin has a wonderful gas stone fireplace, antique cabinets with upscale stainless appliances, built-in beds and a great screen porch. Sleeps 8
There is also a quaint little log and stone barn that has been converted into the Trappers Cabins. This cabin is perfect for honeymooners or couples. It is an amazing combination of old and new and offers great lake views.
You don't want to miss the eclectic Tower Cabin which actually was a log water tower built in 1931. It is a primitive cabin with a few modern conveniences like an outside shower and outhouse, screened room off the deck, small refrigerator, coffee pot, microwave, toaster, tv with DVD and a charcoal grill. This cabin offers the "Bear" essentials for those who are a little more adventurous.
To top it all off we have our Yukon Jack Cabin - the ultimate in log cabin living! From the moment you open the door you will be amazed at the attention to detail and design. The hand crafted spiral log staircase takes you to the second floor bedrooms and bath. The main level has an open floor plan with an additional bedroom, bath, designer kitchen, living/dinning area and patio doors that open to an incredible wrap around deck with a stone fireplace and built-in grill. The steps from the deck lead to a lakeside fire pit, picnic area and to the private dock.
Each of our cabins is unique and offers different amenities so make sure to check them out on our website: thewildernesslodge.com
