We believe this portion is the front section towards the county road. Several additions of other vintage cabins have been assembled to include approximately 3649 square feet of living space. The home's logs appear to be oak, poplar, and pine. The logs are all dovetail corners and are hand-hewn vintage from the late 1700s into the mid-1800s. The origins of the additional log homes are unknown at this time; however, it is typical for such a building to be disassembled and moved from the local area. The home features four beautiful stone fireplaces and two stone chimneys. Currently, fireplaces are used for burning propane gas. Expert craftsmen have assembled the log home to make an outstanding home, lodge, or Airbnb destination.
