Colter Ridge Lodge - 4BR Home
Baths: 3 Full & 1 Half
Colter Ridge Lodge brings the beauty of the outdoors inside; the gracious layout finds serene details echoing the natural splendor surrounding the four-bedroom home.
Colter Ridge envelopes guests long before they step foot inside: The spacious entry porch presents a bench respite, and ivy colors the entrance.
The foyer, marked by flagstone, flows into the open-floor plan perched amid the fir trees. Two one-of-a-kind chairs create a meditative moment overlooking the forest. A den offers a retreat to the left of the front door, an enclave outfitted with a leather couch, flat-screen TV, wood-paneling and wide desk. Continue on to the master suite with its sweeping valley views, framed by the forest. A plush duvet covers the king bed, backed by a leather-paneled headboard piled with dhurrie accent pillows. The suite encompasses a deep walk-in closet and large master bath with custom cabinets, an artful sink, tile shower and bench.
Across the foyer, the living room blends contemporary aesthetics with Western warmth: rustic, barn-wood paneling lines the walls and exposed beams fly above. A pair of textured sofas dialogue with two leather armchairs around matching stone-topped tables in the primary seating area. Nearby, an iconic chaise atop a cowhide rug sits between the fireplace and a lamp-lit console for quiet contemplation of a cowboy lithograph. The cut-through fireplace warms both the living room and the adjoining dining room, where a stone-inlayed dining table comfortably seats eight beneath a chandelier of votives.
The neighboring gourmet kitchen boats a built-in charcoal grill, granite countertops, custom cabinetry, a double-basin porcelain sink, and a stove island. A breakfast area offers banquette seating as well as three chairs, and a built-in desk lends convenience. The kitchen overflows onto the deck, where a Weber gas grill, a dining table and chairs encourage outdoor entertaining.
Access the kitchen is also through the adjacent mudroom with dual entrances from the two-car garage and front porch. Its cubbies, a ski rack and coat hooks make winter disrobing easy. A powder room and hall closet round out the main-level amenities. Art enlivens every room.
Downstairs offers even more living areas, with a family room featuring a game table, armchairs, couches, 55’ a flat-screen TV and entertainment system, including Blue-ray player for access to guests’ internet accounts. An indoor hot tub feels outdoors with its surrounding walls of windows.
Lower level sleeping quarters look out onto the forest and include a junior master and a west wing suite comprising two bedrooms. The first downstairs bedroom presents two twins topped by woolen bedspreads and backed by wrought-iron headboards. Built-in shelves and closets offer ample storage. A second bedroom features two more twin beds, similarly sheathed in Pendleton blankets. A geometric chest of drawers and print of willows add aesthetic elements. A detached bath caters to both bedrooms with its tile shower and tub and double vanity.
Across the living area from the west wing is the third bedroom, which boasts a king bed with its wood headboard, duvet and leather-covered bench anchoring the bed’s foot. A matching console and upholstered armchair accent the room, and the walk-in closet leads to the bathroom with its marble countertop and tile shower and tub.
All told, the Colter Ridge Lodge pairs serene elegance with nature immersion.
