Read more about Mountain View Lodge
Set high above the resort town of Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, the Mountain View Lodge is the perfect rustic retreat for family and friends to gather at any time of the year. This hybrid home features a contour profile and mortise and tenon corners, along with gorgeous timber frame trusses. The owners have truly leaned into the rugged ambiance of this vacation home, featuring bear decor throughout the first and second floors, however, don't let this fool you, as this is a project that has all the luxury amenities you could want.
The main entrance to the Mountain View Lodge brings you into the kitchen. While this space is on the smaller side, it is well designed and features a large farmhouse sink, stunning copper hood, and a beautiful, professional range that includes a built-in pot filler faucet. A pantry is located next to the refrigerator and the U-shaped counter includes bar seating, providing plenty of room for prep work and entertaining. Beyond the kitchen is a large, great room featuring a prow-shaped window wall. Carved bears adorn the timber frame trusses and other log accents. A large river stone fireplace is another highlight of the great room and includes beautifully carved and live edge wood accents. This open space is finished with a good-sized dining area that is easily accessed by the kitchen.
The rest of the main floor includes a guest bedroom (with a Paul Bunyan theme) and an adjoining bathroom, along with the master suite. The master includes a spacious bedroom with a small fireplace and a master bathroom with a large closet. Meanwhile, the upstairs has two more bedrooms, another bathroom, and a fantastic loft space that is perfect for a library, office, or sitting area.
Moving downstairs to the walk-out basement, the decor takes a distinct Western turn. Walking past the poker tables and through some saloon doors takes you into the bar area that includes a window that opens out towards the grill area of the patio. Outside are multiple seating options, a water feature, fire pit, and a hot tub. Covering this area is a large deck that is accessible from the main floor and providing more space to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and fresh air.
