About Canadian Log Home Sales


My dream from very early on was to live in a log cabin in the woods. I found the perfect property near Collingwood Ontario but it was not for sale at the time of discovery. 8 years later and many life experiences in between I returned to the property only to find a dilapidated real estate sign beside the weathered fence post at the entrance. It must have been listed. Had it been sold? I brushed off and untangled the sign and contacted the faded listing number of the Realtor and long story short….. well it was just meant to be.

17 years later I cannot imagine a more perfect cabin to call home base in Ontario, Canada. Warm in the winter, cool in the summer I was most impressed with the cost of log home living. What started as a weekend retreat turned to leaving the city on Thursday night and returning on Tuesday morning. I might as well just move to the country full time. My dogs were delighted (cat not so much) with the decision – freedom, 100 acres and a pond too! Now add to the equation ‘the faded Realtor sign’: this accomplished Realtor of 33 years with extensive experience in post and beam construction and a true respect and passion for log homes = a match made in heaven, who knew!

This  leads me to why I started this website. We thought for one crazy, hasty moment that we might sell my dream home and flee to a warmer climate. In the process I realized that there were no specialty websites to advertise my precious log cabin, it certainly deserved more than just an MLS listing. So I created this site for passionate log home owners and realtors with a true appreciation and understanding of log structures to boast and showcase these amazing homes and retreats. I would also like to note that while both my beloved canine family members lay peacefully at rest overlooking the cabin and pond, my determined cat is still going strong and I have the happy scratch marks in the logs to prove it!
