A Log Home on the Lake Photos

Log Home Living | by: Holly Smith | photos: Rich Frutchey


Gorgeous log home.
The gray shutters are a defining feature of the otherwise modest exterior.

Kayaks on the dock.
The dock is just a quick jaunt from the back deck, which envelops the rear of the home with plenty of extra living space.

A rustic kitchen
Although the kitchen seems modest, its counters pack a one-of-a-kind visual punch, courtesy of locally mined garnet stone. "It has little red sparkles in it that match the cabinets' maroonborder," says John. "It's kind of cool." Also cool are the home's other unexpected touches, including reclaimed-bleacher flooring and the radiant heat beneath it.

Great room with a great view!
One couch in the great room gets a front-row seat to the fantastic lake view.

The stone hearth warms the home.
Initially intent on going with a natural product, John and Evelyn couldn't be happier with their handsome manufactured-stone hearth. "It was maybe a third of the price of real stone," says Evelyn, "and it took less than half the time to construct."

Master bedroom with deck.
The comfy furnishings in the master bedroom were purchased well before the family moved in. "We didn't want the house to be done and then have to start buying furniture," says Evelyn, "because we figured it'd be months before we had enough stuff in there to use it."

View from the Deck
Morning coffee overlooking Lake George is a peaceful start to the day.
