Looking for ideas for your own custom log home?
Explore the Overlook Retreat.
Almost ready to retire, Mike and Carole had a plan. They wanted a custom-built log home in the Catskills near the Delaware River. The Overlook Retreat is the stunning result of their efforts.
Total Living Space 2,510 Sq. Ft. – Main Level 1,488 Sq. Ft. – Upper Level 1,022 Sq. Ft.
Their friends settled about five miles from the Delaware and when the couple visited, they fell in love with the place. Their friends owned a custom-built log home from nearby Beaver Mountain Log & Cedar Homes. There was property available nearby and the view sealed the decision. They bought the land and chose to work with Beaver Mountain Log & Cedar Homes since their friends had such a great experience. Beaver Mountain’s design team went out to the site as they do with each project. They walked the property and listened to Mike and Carole’s wish list. Then, they designed a custom log home to fit the land and Mike and Carole’s needs.
The design team also proposed a style that included a large wraparound deck. The slope of the land dictated some choices but in the end, the land and the home were in harmony. When Mike and Carole asked to change the fireplace so it had two fronts – one in the Great Room and one in the dining room, the adjustments were made. Once again, a dream was realized and today Mike and Carole enjoy a vista that includes a blend of valleys and hills. Thanks to a clever design team, Mike and Carole are living their dream in their custom Beaver Mountain Log Home.
