Retreat Home

This project represents the realization of a quintessential Adirondack Lodge dream; it has been our privilege to assist the homeowners in bringing it to life. Perched on a hill overlooking a lake in Northwestern Wisconsin, the log lodge welcomes family and friends with its peaked gables, distinctive dormers and soaring spaces. Rusticity is the main theme, but modern touches and personal details play off the classic forms, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms. Interior windows and overlooks, and a winding triangular stair space are special touches that connect multiple levels and forms. The lodge has 5 bedroom suites and sleeps over 16. Though it meets the needs of a large group, the warmth and intimacy of the space makes it comfortable for just a couple to enjoy.
