Meander up the long driveway on this property and you’ll pass meadows on the right and the Black River on the left. Soon you’ll come upon the 2-bedroom, 2-bath log chalet, complete with an A-frame design and Swiss-inspired railings on the deck. Inside, there’s a large great room with a stone fireplace that reaches to the top of the 21’ cathedral ceiling.

The kitchen has a beamed ceiling, and windows with beautifully carved cornices. A pass-through to the dining room lends ease and character to the space, while the kitchen’s center island adds more room for preparation and storage. A screened porch opens off of the dining room. This home has two master bedrooms, one on each level: Upstairs is a loft-like room, with a sliding barn door opening into the modern master bath; the main-level master is ensuite, as well.

This outdoor-lover’s paradise is situated on land that includes trails and woods. The log ranch has a rustic vibe, with wood-clad walls and hunt-club furnishings throughout the open-concept space. It appeals to the more modern-minded, however, with stainless-steel appliances and a full array of Shaker-style cabinets in the kitchen. Central air-conditioning keeps things cool in the summer; the home is wired for a backup generator for severe weather outages. A ceiling fan and recessed lighting highlight the cathedral ceiling in the great room.

The home has two bedrooms and 1.5 baths, but bunk beds in the second bedroom mean that up to seven can sleep comfortably. And you’ll need a good night’s rest, with so many acres on which to hunt, hike, snowmobile, and cross-country ski. The house has a wrap-around deck to enjoy the wooded views in the summer; inside, there’s a stone fireplace to warm you up in the winter.
