[Sybil Lake, Vergas, Minnesota]
Nestled in on Sybil Lake, lies a family cabin filled with moments and memories in time. The home happens to be the family’s third on Sybil Lake throughout the years. Built back in 2008, a log cabin home was a long-standing dream of the mother of the family, whom wishes to remain anonymous.
With a passion for wood, the father of the family made the log cabin dream come to life for his wife and their children. Working with ResCom Building Services, of Fargo, N.D., they located and utilized white and red pine from Wisconsin for the siding and logs of both the cabin’s interior and exterior. Additionally, the build incorporated tamarack brought in from Park Rapids, Minn., as well as basswood, rustic alder, reclaimed oak, and reclaimed southern yellow pine.
The Gathering Space...
The stately buffalo head, mounted above the living room mantle, serves as a tribute to the cabin owner’s father. At one point in time, he gifted his father with four live buffalo as a birthday present. His father grew quite fond of one in particular, and now that buffalo adorns the family cabin in remembrance of their late father/grandfather.
A Home Away From Home...
The family spends not only the Summer months on Sybil Lake, but traditionally gather there each year for Christmas. They adore the city of Vergas, located just ten minutes North of the cabin. Some of their favorite stops in Vergas include breakfast at The Loon’s Nest or lunch at Billy’s Corner Bar.
The wood centerpiece of the kitchen was once apart of the owner’s childhood home.
This dining room set was crafted by a local company out of Dent, Minn.
