This is not your typical Lake home! The design of this fabulous estate was inspired by the original Pebble Beach Club House having four Master Suites entering a Timber Log Great Room with spectacular views from every window. Two lofts overlook the Great Room, one with a sitting area and a TV, the other with a sitting area for reading or for just watching the activities below. Each loft has its own adjoining bedroom with full bath.
The spacious kitchen has all the amenities one could ask for including an Aga Range with four ovens and six stove tops. The wet bar is not in the kitchen and it has its own refrigerator allowing the bartender plenty of space to create while staying out of the chefs way. There is a gas grill on the covered deck which overlooks a wildlife sanctuary. So in the evening you can relax on the lake side deck watching the sunset, while in the morning you can sip your coffee with the birds on the back deck in the trees.
Take the walkway to the estates private island where you will find your own dock which has a large platform and two built in benches. This dock is great for tanning, fishing, swimming or just enjoying the lake. A canoe, paddle boat and three kayaks are included for your use.

One year our family rented the original Pebble Beach Club House, which is located on the 18th green of the Pebble Beach Golf Course. The old club house is a private residence now and is named the "Canary House." One evening when we were sitting in the Canary House we commented on how comfortable it was with its large centrally located great room and private suites that opened to this great room. The layout of this old club house worked so well, you could all be together in the great room or you could easily slip into your private room for solitude if and when desired.
As we talked about the Canary House we thought this would be a great floor plan for a family retreat center or cabin. That was how The Lodge at Lake Sylvia originated.
We are five loving sibling who own the Lodge.
We chose to build the Lodge in this location because we had a family cabin in this region since childhood and we have always enjoyed this area. The area is close to the cities for easy access but far enough to be away from everything. Lake Sylvia is one of the clearest/cleanest lakes in the state, which always makes it a pleasure to visit. A secluded five acre lot was found in the woods on The Lake Sylvia Peninsula with its own island and that was just too good to pass by! So now we have a very large private lodge, in the woods, on a great lake, close to the cities where we can get away from everything.
