Lake Bluff Lodge-Modern Rustic Homes-01-1 Kindesign

Lake Bluff Lodge is a breathtaking modern-rustic home designed and built by Modern Rustic Homes, located on the Blue Ridge Lake in Georgia. The homeowners requested their home to be built with craftsman touches, designed for entertaining and comfortable living. The 4,049 square foot dwelling is located on a deeply sloped site, presenting its own challenges.

The completed design maximizes the views of the lake from every room through extensive windows. The interior palette uses materials, colors, and textures to infuse a modern touch to the craftsman details. The requirement was to keep the details simple, yet very comfortable.

At 20 feet by 20 feet, this great room is ultra-spacious—especially with its soaring 18-foot high, vaulted ceilings. The ceiling features rough-sawn planks and elegant arched collar ties. These material elements infuse a subtle craftsman aesthetic that compliments the clean lines of this magnificent space.

The focal point is the dramatic fireplace, designed to showcase the stone. According to the architects, the stone was applied with, “the grain vertically to the left and right and horizontally in the middle. The same material was used with a chiseled edge as a spacer between tiles to add texture and pattern.”

Does this place still exist? Did they change the name to something else? I can’t find any evidence of its existence online other than these home design sites. There’s no website that I can find, and apparently no info anywhere about how to rent the lodge or even precisely where it is (other than the name of the lake.) If these features about the design were supposed to be good for drumming up business, they missed the mark on that.
