About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 3 Level Spacious Log Home Nestled In The Picturesque Valley!

Corporate groups, hunters, fishers, family reunions, groups of friends, visiting "the kids" at Luther and an upcoming wedding are all examples of groups that trust The Lodge to provide fantastic, comfortable accommodations for their special events. In fact, as owners, we love this place so much that it is tough to pack up to leave when we know that our guests are enroute to our log getaway. We've planned, furnished and decorated this home to tickle your fancy and to provide a little education for your gang.... and we've learned a lot during that process.

Outdoor space, including the grill/picnic table, firepit/benches, cement patio/table and chairs, and deck with three rockers and two sets of tables and chairs encourage you to break out into nature. Our grass is still a work in progress, but "to everything there is a season", and it will be lush before long so you can enjoy our assortment of lawn games.

You will find one bedroom with a queen bed and its closet on the main level, close to the bathroom with shower, tub, sink and toilet. Easy access.

Upstairs, on the loft level, are three more bedrooms, two including a queen bed and one equipped with four twin beds (aka the bunkroom!). There is a bathroom on every floor for your convenience. The loft bathroom is generously sized and has a shower with glass door.

Our kitchen is convenient to the back door, making toting in your food supplies quite easy. There is cabinet space open for your groceries, as well as a side by side refrigerator that will hold many bags of goodies. Plenty of cooking tools, pans, and serveware make it easy to rustle up some tasty treats.

The great room has a stunning rock gas fireplace with a thick walnut slab mantle, complete with natural bark edge! Aren't you curious about the large "friend" who is perched on the high mantle? A turkey fan, several fish and a deer add that trophy room touch to this gathering area. Oh, the stories that these walls will hear when friends and family gather. No TV distraction; just great conversation.

If you need to finish the great book that you've toted along, snuggle in your bedroom, on the large sectional in the walkout level, or choose a loft level chair to enjoy that literature with a cup of tea. There is a TV on the loft level, in the walkout level (with DVD player), and a small version in the kitchen for folks who need their fix of HGTV, news or sports!

The lower level is a space where there can be competition and munchies together. The bar space includes a sink, hidden refrigerator and small microwave as well as glassware for your favorite beverages. (The beer mugs are cooling in the refrigerator for you right now.) Billiards, shuffleboard and a variety of table games await your gang. Rules are posted, so you can learn as you go.

The outdoor spaces that are completed include the main level deck with a spectacular view of Bear Creek. Great for photo moments, breakfast or gathering with appetizers and cocktails before dinner. There is also a patio table on the cement patio off of the walkout level. Outside of the main entry you'll find the charcoal grill and a picnic table. Off in the edge of the driveway is your S'mores headquarters; the fire pit and custom made benches.

Grass will be in place as Mom Nature dictates. Those little seeds will be joined by timely additional plantings throughout the summer. We are anxious to get a nice crop of grass for the kids and grandkids to romp on.

Norwegian heritage is very important to Decorah area residents. The influence of those early settlers is quite prominent in architecture, businesses and the common "barn quilts" through the countryside. The downtown Decorah Chamber of Commerce has display racks full of pamphlets that educate you in all the area has to offer. Internet sites offer the same. There are festivals, restaurants, museums and prolific artists to keep you ever so busy!
