Warm and inviting log cabin on a tranquil lake in Northern Michigan

Jean Stoffer Design has reimagined the interiors of this warm and inviting log cabin nestled along Torch Lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in Northern Michigan. Stretching 19 miles long, Torch Lake is the longest inland lake in Michigan.

Inside this 1930s log cabin, you will find a beautiful blend of old and new. The homeowners had a vision for this derelict structure which experienced numerous handyman-type additions over the decades. The end result is absolutely beautiful. Continue below for the tour…

What We Love: The designer did an incredible job of highlighting the original bones of this inviting log cabin. We are loving how they kept the wood tones but brightened it up just a bit while still keeping all the character.

Tell Us: What details in this renovation project do you find most inspiring and why? Let us know in the Comments below!

Note: Be sure to have a look at a couple of other fabulous home tours that we have showcased here on One Kindesign in the state of Michigan: Tour this craftsman lake house in Michigan with a cozy cottage vibe and This lakeside haven provides a spectacular family retreat on Lake Huron.

Above: The kitchen features custom cabinetry by Stoffer Home Cabinetry. The designer painted the walls and ceiling white but kept a few wood beams to maintain the warmth and natural elements. The cabinetry adds a fun pop of color, painted in “Sutton Blue” — a perfect blue grey from the Stoffer Home cabinet line. An idyllic kitchen for family entertaining.

Above: This lake view room is a long room that was tricky to arrange furniture in. Here two areas were created, so smaller groups can have conversations; each with a gorgeous view of Torch Lake in Northern Michigan.

Above: This view shows the original exterior walls. There were many additions over the decades. Part of the challenge of the remodel was making the transitions between the additions flow better. The first time the designer walked through the house it felt like a maze. Clearing out unnecessary twists and turns and strategically painting did so much to breathe new life into this amazing space.
