In 2010 when we bought this beautiful summerhouse. At that time it was fairly new and the interiour almost ready, but outdors remained lots of work to be done. Since then we have invested our time in building a new veranda, installing the hot tub and preparing a good playground. Now when everyting is in pristine condition we want to share this wonderful log cabin with others.
