Phenomenal Lodge in Lewiston

Swirling with rustic charm and high end amenities, this gem is a rare find. Tucked away in the tall pines about 8 miles from Lewiston sits a log lodge, formerly Pine Ridge B&B. This grand 8 bedroom, 7 bath home has been upgraded tastefully in all right areas while keeping the rich history of the lodge preserved. 

The main level of the home offers a stunning entry and dining area with enough room to serve a football team Thanksgiving dinner, a comfortable living room to watch TV, an enormous recreational room with bar, fireplace and pool table, as well as a  screened in porch perfect to sit quietly with a book and listen to the nature that surrounds. This lodge has a high end, updated kitchen you must see to appreciate. Custom cabinetry, commercial grade stainless steel appliances, ample natural light and counter space make cooking a breeze. A true chefs kitchen! 

Walking into the main level master suite is comparable to a private stay at a lux resort. Offering floor to ceiling red cedar walls, thermo controlled stone fireplace, and beautiful hand crafted wood work it may just be your favorite room in the house. The master bath offers radiant in floor heat, a 'spa-like' walk in shower, walk in closet and stone wall. It's truly stunning. 

Upstairs you'll find 7 guest rooms, all offering their own unique character. Some of the rooms offer private baths with showers. A total of 5 bathrooms are on the upper level of the home.  

Outside of this stunning log retreat there is a generous 2 car garage, a barn that would be perfect for any craftsman OR horse enthusiast as well as an additional shed to store your garden tools. 

But wait...there's more! What else could there possibly be, you ask? A guest house! If you have a large family, hunting camp, or would like to entertain the possibility of rental income, this is the perfect spot. This guest house is complete with a fully functional kitchen, living area, dining area bathroom and bedroom. It's situated perfectly on the property where family who stays there are close enough to interact and enjoy activities and renters are far enough away to have a quiet and private space. 

The location of this lodge couldn't get any better. Situated on 37 acres of mature trees, the AuSable River is just five minutes away, providing some of the best fly-fishing opportunities in North America. The area is well known for the diverse wildlife it supports, including the endangered Kirtland Warbler, the bald eagle, whitetail deer, coyotes, bear, grousse, turkeys and many other varities of fish and fowl. Secluded in next to thousands of acres of State land, the area offers many acres for hiking, over 10k of cross-country ski trails, snowmobiling, excellent hunting and more than 20 miles of mapped mountain biking trails right out the front door! 

Whether you're looking to purchase a large home for family or you aspire to own and operate a highly successful bed and breakfast, this is THE property. This lodge is unlike anything you will find on the market. Unique in it's superb condition, modern updates where it counts, and rustic 'Up North' charm this home is a must see! 

If you, or anyone you know is looking for a grand lodge in the heart of Northern Michigan, please send this their way.
