Sitting on Indiana’s Snow Lake, the Freemont Log Home was built when one family outgrew their lakeside cottage and were ready to upgrade to a house that would eventually become their full-time residence. As the kids had grown up and now had their own children, the original owners wanted a home that could bring the whole family together while allowing everyone their own space to relax.
Having spent their vacations in such a small cottage, the original owners of the Freemont went in the complete opposite direction this time. Still, they wanted to make sure that their new home maintained the cozy and warm ambiance of a lakeside cottage. Built from hand-peeled white pin logs, the Freemont is a stunning building that seamlessly blends tradition with the comforts of modern living.
The Great Room is the centerpiece of the home, providing breathtaking views across the lake through the large windows. A large deck off the Great Room is the perfect place to get some fresh air and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The cultured stone fireplace was made to imitate the look of river stone, while twisted juniper makes an equally marvelous mantel. Half-log stair treads, decorative log railings and log rafters add to the rustic ambiance of the room.
Moving into the kitchen, the logs and wooden cabinets are complemented by granite countertops. The country feel of the home doesn’t get lost in an overly modern kitchen, although it has all the amenities a home cook could need. A dining area is nearby with its own fireplace. It is the perfect spot for more formal dining, while maintaining a cozy atmosphere.
Between the two bedrooms on the upper level, bedrooms in the finished basement, and the bonus room above the garage, there is plenty of space for guests. The master suite is on the main floor and features cathedral ceilings and a private screened-in porch. After a long day on the lake swimming, fishing, or boating, the tiled master bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub that is the perfect place to unwind.
