The lodge is a faithful reproduction of an antique family home in Tennessee. The log structure style is known as a Tennessee "I" house. It is a dogtrot cabin that has had an additional story-and-a-half cabin attached to the existing home at the rear dogtrot opening. The lodge is constructed of hand-hewn logs utilizing the true craftsman's methods including dovetailed corners, pegged mortise and tenon joints, ridge rafters with collar beams, and interior log walls with hand chinking. Furnishings are period antiques, authentic reproductions, and family heirlooms. The "necessary", however, is one of the modern conveniences and is found in your private bedroom.
