We bought our cabin in the woods a few years ago and immediately began transforming it into our perfect mountain retreat. The project included not only redoing all existing rooms but also changing the floorplan and adding a great room that nearly doubled Hinterlander's footprint.
The transformation of the property included adding floor-to-ceiling windows, glass double doors and wide sliding doors, skylights, a wood-burning Jotul stove, and conversion of the old fireplace to a gas-burning with remote-controlled convenience.
We wanted to make Hinterlander spacious, airy, and bright -- but also rich with a comfortable and cozy atmosphere that takes full advantage of the views and nature around it. To that end, we also transformed the outside of our home by turning our old parking area and half of our driveway into an enormous stone patio and fire pit, updating and enhancing the decks, adding a horseshoe pit, and providing an outdoor grilling and dining space.
Now that it's complete, we are sharing Hinterlander with guests who seek to find a modern, cozy, mountain retreat.
A Note About Our Website
Hinterlander's web design was influenced by a love for old maps, national parks posters, the outdoor scouting gear we grew up with, weathered road signs, vintage travel magazines, and modern & retro mix (much like Hinterlander itself) that our webmaster (aka our sister/sister-in-law) knew we would appreciate.
We've also tried to include a tad bit a humor with the help of Buck, Hinterlander's canine host.
Visit Buck's Buddies to see some of Hinterlander's previous canine guests who have sent photos to Buck.
Finally, we hope you will check back on Hinterlander's website from time to time. We will update the site periodically with new/seasonal photos and videos, guest reviews, and -- of course -- whatever additional input Buck provides.
