A Vintage Lodge With Impressive Modern Twists

Witness a Charm of The Past


This super cool lodge dates back to the 1790s, and for this reason it carries with it a large amount of historic grace. Over the years though, it’s been modified and added onto, been outfitted with new furniture, painted, and altered in other ways that make it the extraordinary blend of antique and modern that it is today. It is located in Berks County, PA and comes with an amazing pond on 11 acres of the land.  Take a look at these fabulous photos (credited to Justin Tearney) and then tell us what you think on our Facebook Page! 


I love hearing from readers about their own houses. This updated log cabin from the 1790s in Berks County, Pennsylvania, belongs to Patrick, who bought it in 2009: “The house had a ton of charm, from the painted Pennsylvania Dutch doors to almost all of the original hardware.” The listing says, “Enjoy the serenity of nature and watch the beauty of the changing seasons from one of two covered patios. Spend summer evenings entertaining around the fire pit beside the flowing stream or quietly relax by the private pond.” “This property is the perfect mix of timeless history and modern touches. From the exposed beam ceilings, beautifully maintained original wood floors, gorgeous architectural details in every room, to the gourmet kitchen with upgraded stainless Jenn-Air appliances and a fully restored woodburning fireplace, this home offers the finest amenities throughout, yet maintains the charming character of the past.” The house has 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a little over 2,000 square feet.
