      Now..I know why you posted the Facebook pic! I got the warm fuzzies all over too! This….IS really something special! Think the tower is big enough for a Lil Baby Chopper pad? Because you must after all! 😍

    Oh my goodness!!! Where I would live and restore if I were a rich eccentric instead of a poor one. I am in love.

      It would be fun to fix it up and pretend to be from a lost branch of European nobility in the (small) castle on the mountain. Your name is perfect for the role!

    If you’ve ever wanted to live in a castle folly, now’s your chance.

    This house looks like it was designed by committee. A lot of elbow grease is needed, but this would make a wonderful summer place.

    Wasn’t this one posted just a few days ago? I can’t quite figure out the layout!

      It was posted in last week’s share by just John who is well known for consistently showering us with great listings. This one is no slacker.

      I have to agree. I can’t figure out the floorplan either. But it is intriguing and looks like it would a tons of fun to restore!

    I am seriously wanting a shot at this. I see a French castle waiting to be unveiled. Murals , beams , stone walk-in fireplace…stone floors….let me at those ugly steel columns in the back.

    I’d love to rip out that lowered ceiling and design a custom kitchen with a Brothers Grimm/Black Forest theme, with pointed lancet-arch cabinets modeled along the lines of cuckoo clocks with birch bark veneer and pine-cone pull knobs, and maybe polished river stones for countertops…

    Very interesting house, I love it’s funkiness! I wonder about that doorway filled with rocks in the basement

    Cool lodge. Thanks’ John for posting it in the share. I have a feeling that they may have significantly added on to this one and completely covered up the original pretty early on. I wonder if the original structure may have been much more of a rusticator than the plaster and lath Victorian we mostly still see today. I would take it back there decoratively and hope there is a stone fireplace under that boxy plaster bit. Seems a couple of new images have been added to the listing which support my theory. Very exciting site.

    What a suprising mish-mash of styles! I’m just gonna copy-paste the comment I wrote in the link share page where John posted this listing, because i can’t take the resemblance off my head: The numerous dormers remind me of a stone house of which i took a photo a few years back (in St Côme d’Olt, Aveyron, France): https://tinyurl.com/maisonstcomedolt . Made me think one was for Papa Bear’s bedroom, then Mama bear and on top baby bear 😀
