As promised in our first post on Moose Ridge Lodge, we’re taking a closer look at this mountainside post and beam vacation home. Coming in at 1657 square feet, the second home has function and fun packed into every inch of the floor plan, all while making zero sacrifice to style. The house looks and feels exactly like what it is, a get-away place for family and friends to gather, relax, and make memories.
As evidenced in the floor plans below, the common area of the house is open concept, allowing people to move and interact freely from space to space. This includes a large deck off the front of the home which almost doubles the living space during warmer months.
Everywhere you look there are unique and interesting features the homeowners have added to make the space reflect their tastes and lifestyle. This home is truly about relaxation and a penchant for all things enjoyable.
Situated on a hillside overlooking the White Mountain range of NH, the views from the front wall of windows is astounding. No matter the season, a wide range of wildlife may be seen simply by looking out the window or through the telescope.
A great deal of thought and creativity went into this post and beam home. Take the industrial style pendant lights over the kitchen island. The use of commercial piping was painted black then used as conduit for the electrical wiring. It’s both ingenious and a look completely in keeping with this Yankee Barn.
The owners put it best, “Our goal with the design was to incorporate entertaining areas that would include children and adults. The open floor plan and large galley kitchen makes for perfect “friends-over dinners” where we serve potluck in a buffet style with ease. We think nothing of having 20-plus people in this house. Although on the smaller size, we utilized every space to maximize living/social areas. We wanted a place to make family memories so it needed to be more than a house, it needed to be a home we felt in our hearts.” Moose Ridge Lodge has lived up to the family’s wishes, and then some!
