Interior of the Log House
Here are several views of the Great Room.
The great room is the oldest log part of the house. We have satellite TV, VCR, and DVD. that guests are welcome to view in this room. There is lots of modern, comfortable seating. The fireplace, with its real wood fires; invite quiet contemplation and relaxation. Wood fires are burned here as soon as it's chilly, not for heat; just for romance!
Spring daffodils in our large country kitchen welcome the cooks. In the background are the french doors that open to the music/dining room. We enjoy creating home made gourmet breakfasts for our guests.
Barbara enjoys adapting recipies to include more whole grains, soy, fruits and nut additions for improved nutrition.
Our rooms are large and spacious. The only downstairs guest room is the Americana Room with its queen size sleigh bed and cozy futon sitting couch. The futton can be folded down for guests who choose to sleep seperately. This bathroom has a built-in sunken, redwood, jacuzzi hot-tub and shower. These spaces are designed to be handicapped accessible. Please let us know if that is important to your comfort.
The Great Room Bedroom is in the oldest, original part of the house, located on the second floor at the top of the quaint original L-shaped staircase. It is a peaceful retreat space with its antique black walnut and chocolate marble furniture. Located in the room are a double bed and The love seat can be folded out for guests who choose to sleep separately. The seven-sided circular stained/leaded glass window in the north part of the wood cathedral ceiling is spectacular.
Located above the music room in the newest part of the house is the Master Bedroom suite with its gas log fireplace and antique oak mantle. The pineapple poster double bed and a love seat establish a comfortable family living space.
The children's room is currently the next place we plan to renovate. Please be in discussion with us about the availability of this room. Planned changes will include more sleeping spaces and closets.
Here are three views of the music room, including Russell's grand piano, the antique wood burning parlor stove, and a cozy reading chair. Also located here is the formal dining table where guests eat. The reproduction dry sink holds hot coffee and tea for early morning guests to serve themselves.
