This is the Stunning Gate Lodge by The Little Log House Company. (UPDATE 7/19/21): The company has gone out of business).
This 296 sq. ft. looks way bigger than it is, but at under 400 sq. ft. it’s certainly still tiny. It has two bedrooms upstairs and a gracious living/dining/kitchen area on the first floor. There’s even a second-floor balcony for gazing out at the snow! Pretty neat, right?

More Information on Log Cabins
Log cabins and log homes evoke images of cozy retreats nestled amidst nature’s beauty. They have a rich history and unique charm that sets them apart from conventional housing. In this article, we will delve into the differences between log cabins and log homes, their disadvantages, the story behind Log Cabin syrup, the characteristics of these structures, and key considerations when purchasing one.
Log Cabin vs. Log Home
The terms “log cabin” and “log home” are often used interchangeably, but there is a subtle distinction between the two. Generally, a log cabin refers to a smaller, rustic dwelling made entirely of logs, traditionally associated with early settlers and pioneers. On the other hand, a log home typically refers to a larger, more modern dwelling constructed using logs as a primary building material. Log homes often feature contemporary amenities and can encompass various architectural styles.
Disadvantages of Log Cabins
While log cabins have their appeal, they also come with some disadvantages. One significant drawback is maintenance. The logs require regular upkeep, such as sealing or staining, to protect against moisture and insects. Additionally, log cabins may have limitations in terms of insulation and energy efficiency compared to conventional homes. Ensuring proper insulation and implementing energy-efficient measures can mitigate this concern.
Characteristics and Unique Features of Log Cabins and Log Homes
Log cabins and log homes possess several defining characteristics. The most notable feature is their construction using stacked logs as the primary building material. This creates a distinctive appearance and a warm, inviting ambiance. The natural beauty of the logs and the craftsmanship involved make each structure unique. Log cabins and log homes can range in size, architectural style, and amenities, catering to a variety of preferences.
Considerations Before Buying a Log House
If you are considering purchasing a log house, it is essential to keep a few key factors in mind. Firstly, consider the maintenance requirements, including regular sealing and staining to preserve the logs’ integrity. Additionally, assess the energy efficiency of the structure and inquire about insulation and heating systems to ensure year-round comfort. It is also vital to research local building codes and regulations, as they may have specific requirements for log homes.
Log cabins and log homes embody a sense of rustic charm and timeless appeal. While log cabins are often associated with smaller, traditional structures, log homes offer a more modern approach to log construction. Understanding the differences, disadvantages, and unique features of these dwellings can help prospective buyers make informed decisions when considering a log house as their dream home.
