Read more about Lake Nolin Retreat

Situated by the waterfront of Lake Nolin in Kentucky, this retreat highlights the Rustic Profile for which Real Log Homes is known. This house is a perfect example of how you can create a cozy, rustic space with all the modern amenities, making it the ideal place to escape the stresses of the week. At just under 3,000 square feet, this property makes skillful use of its space.

Entering the main floor through the front door, the great room lies straight ahead. Featuring cathedral ceilings, a stone fireplace, and a window wall that allows for plentiful natural light, this room is truly the focal point of the Lake Nolin Retreat. A door leads out onto the large, wraparound deck, which is next to the sunroom, for those days when the elements are not cooperating.

A small dining area leads into the kitchen, another highlight of this property. The kitchen maximizes the space available, providing plenty of counters for prep work and a long island with bar seating. While this kitchen has a real rustic, country ambiance, it has all the modern amenities any home cook could need. The main floor also contains a bedroom and a bathroom.

Leading up to the second floor is an impressive staircase that continues the rustic theme of the house. Hand-peeled logs paired with twig balusters make this another striking feature. Once upstairs, a loft views down upon the great room. This floor includes a master bedroom and bathroom, along with a guest bedroom, along with another bathroom.

A partially finished basement provides plenty of storage space. The finished section could be used as a recreation room or den and includes a wood stove. The backyard is accessed through glass doors.
