Take a tour of this log home retreat: The kitchen is a work of art

Located atop a hill overlooking a glistening lake in Hayward, Wisconsin, sits this incredible retreat log home which oozes rustic charm yet benefits from modern touches throughout.
This stylish wooden retreat was designed by A & H Architecture and features beautiful detailing in every inch of the home, combined with the rugged charm of a solid log and stone construction.
This expansive lodge has five bedroom suites meaning it can sleep over 16 people. Although it is perfect for a large group looking for a weekend retreat, the warm and intimate space means it can be an enjoyable escape for just a couple too.
The home is typified by soaring ceilings and large windows which serve tranquil views of the natural environment, with unique and interesting vistas from every room of this three-story home.
