Log cabins always appear at home in the mountains. It is the natural materials with which they are built that make them ideal for woodland and mountain ranges. When dreaming of a cabin in the woods, few people could imagine a location as spectacular as we are featuring today.
The Alpine Retreat is a hand-crafted modern log home situated in the mountains of New Zealand. Alpine Retreat was expertly constructed by Natural Log Homes, with an incredible panorama overlooking the mountains of Queenstown – a location which was used much throughout the making of the "Lord of the Rings" movie trilogy.
The stunning natural landscape of New Zealand allows you to ski in the morning and surf in the afternoon. Perfect!
Located on the South Island of New Zealand, this stunning log home sits upon a quiet hill over the Wakatipu Basin. It perfectly captures the sweeping views of the forested valley with the snow-capped peaks of a mountainous backdrop. Remarkable!
This quaint alpine retreat is built the way a log home should be: A solid construction of wood which complements the natural surroundings. This gorgeous little home has an expansive front porch at the entrance with a unique and attractive oversized dormer.
The Alpine Retreat has a wide porch around the entirety of the home. Who wouldn't want 360-degree outdoor space with this as your back yard?
This quaint lodge certainly boasts one of the most spectacular exteriors we have seen, but let's take a look to see how the designers approached the interior.
At the rear of the house is the great room, and what a great room. The mountain range is all the decor this living space requires. The large windows and high ceiling draw the scenery into the home, making you feel like you are always in the great outdoors.
The large kitchen and dining room are finished to exceptionally high standards. The heavy logs in the beamed ceiling and attractive wood-paneled kitchen cabinets combine to give this room its own character.
Alpine Retreat has one bedroom and one bathroom, with every room benefiting from plenty of space to breathe.
The use of wood throughout the home is exquisite. These attractive logs are robust and rugged, giving this home a timeless and solid feel. The staircase leads to a large loft area which is the ideal home office, benefiting from the light and views of the great room windows.
To the rear of Alpine Retreat, we find a peaceful patio and garden which is ideal for entertaining during the summer months.
Alpine Retreat certainly ticks all the boxes for us when it comes to log-home living. Do you agree?
