The first floor of the lodge was built more than 20 years ago out of square-cut beams and made for a cozy, if small, wilderness home. In recent years Kristin and Julius have expanded, built an extra floor, and added a large wooden deck.
The new building was constructed by a team of carpenters who live locally using traditional timber-framing techniques. The front of the lodge is almost entirely glass giving expansive views over the garden and the river beyond.
The best of modern and traditional
In the rebuilding of the ranch, traditional techniques were married with modern technologies including LED lighting, high-efficiency on-demand water-heaters and solar power.
Guests are offered wireless internet (thoughout the ranch) as well as use of a small nature library and a variety of wildlife documentaries.
After dinner we often arrange for a presentation about the wildlife that live in the area.
