This custom log home on Lake McConaughy was designed as a family retreat.

The prow of the home was extended for better vistas of the lake and creates a feeling that the lake is part of the home. The great room wall’s original design of just a picture window was transformed to the massive peaked wall of glass to showcase the spectacular views of the lake and the serenity of the stunning sunsets.

The wrap-around deck was expanded and extends from the master bedroom to the spacious gazebo featuring a gas fire pit, with stairs leading to the lake.

The kitchen features custom Birch cabinets and a large island with a cooktop for enjoying friends at the bar while preparing delicious meals.

The six-foot telescoping dining table seats 20 and was commissioned to be built by the industrial arts program at the high school. With additional tables set, the home will accommodate many more guests for holidays and dinner parties.

The two-story stone gas fireplace features a custom log mantle. Radiant heating emanates throughout the Australian cypress wood flooring throughout the home.

The stairs to the second floor were crafted by Roy Conway of Nelson Construction with half-split logs with slots to support the logs. There are spectacular views from every window.

The main floor master bedroom features a sliding door to the deck and a large bay window. The large loft overlooks the great room and boasts spectacular views of the lake.

Both upstairs bedrooms have private bathrooms, and balconies to enjoy the views of the lake and sunsets. The kid’s zone is the delightful “bunk room” that sleeps nine in pine log bedrooms.

The lower level walk-out is finished and ready for amazing gatherings of friends and family. This space has new carpeting and is over 1400 square feet. It features a spacious family room, a built-in wine rack, and a large alcove ready for you to design your bar.


The home is well-situated in a perfect location, protected from the wind, as the adjacent lot is common ground that is planted with beautiful pine trees. Lake McConaughy is a three-hour drive from Denver, located 9 miles north of Ogallala near US Highway 26 and Nebraska Highway 61.
