Lodge at Steinthal - Winter


After many discussions we have decided to place The Lodge at Steinthal up for sale.

Nestled away in the remote countryside of rural Manitowoc County about 15 miles from the shore of Lake Michigan, The Lodge and residence are surrounded by 75 acres of woods, offering a rustic country charm beautifully combined with all the modern amenities that provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It would be a wonderful home for your family and an ideal location to host large parties and corporate functions.

The newly constructed (2008) guest home known as The Lodge at Steinthal is currently being offered as a private guest house that has also housed families from all over the United States since 2011. The property is mostly wooded and includes a private 8-acre spring fed lake that is 35 feet deep and teeming with fish. It also includes a new dock, large swimming platform, a paddle boat, 2 kayaks, a lighted tennis court, basketball court, chicken coop, storage shed and new 1,350 sq foot cement floor pole shed. There is also a large millpond located on the northern half of the property. The purchase price includes all Lodge furniture, accessories and kitchen appliances.

The Lodge at Steinthal was built in 2008 as a family gathering location. The interior design is timber frame utilizing Douglas fir from Montana. Traditional post-and-beam construction with steel joinery along with reclaimed local barn wood floors contribute to the 3500 square feet of stunning interior space on three levels complete with a fireplace and cathedral ceiling.

The main level features an expansive great room featuring reclaimed barn-wood flooring, a wood burning fireplace and access to a separate patio for entertaining and grilling.   The great room has been utilized for many large parties, dinners and dances complete with local bands for entertainment. The gourmet kitchen comes complete with all commercial grade appliances and is a perfect place to make a snack for yourself or a three-course meal for 40 people.

There are two bedrooms located upstairs next to a full bath.  A ladder leads to an upper loft and balcony facing to the east and over looking the private lake.

The lodge basement is finished and includes a large “bunk-room” that holds a twin bunk bed, two queen beds, a TV, pool table and foosball table.  A separate bathroom with shower and separate laundry room are also located on the basement level.

The Lodge furniture will be sold with the property.

There are many groomed walking paths throughout the property and this place would be a dream for any hunter or angler.

The residence is newly remodeled with all new windows, hardwood flooring, interior and exterior doors, cedar siding, garage doors, interior and exterior lighting and a new metal roof. It includes a spacious living area with a wood burning fireplace overlooking the private lake, a formal dining room, sun room, patio and three bedrooms on the main level.

The master bedroom suite includes a large Kohler Riverbath whirlpool, heated bathroom floors, new tile and a private balcony overlooking the lake.

The residence kitchen is currently being remodeled and will be completely new at the time of sale.  All brand new commercial grade kitchen appliances will be ready for entertaining.

The four season sun room attached to the kitchen overlooks the large patio and private lake in the back yard.

The basement is completely refinished with new carpet, a wet bar, new gas fireplace and plenty of room for just about anything you could imagine.

There is also a large private study complete with new hardwood flooring and a picturesque view of the private lake, a built in bookshelf and a separate wood-burning fireplace.

Finally, the downstairs bedroom suite features a private entry, expansive walk in closet, private sitting room and a private bath with brand new cabinets, a granite counter top, heated floors and a tiled shower.

A newly built 1,350 square foot pole shed, located on the south end of the tennis court, provides for ample storage of all your toys and has a poured concrete foundation, metal roof and electrical service.

The property has a near-zero electric usage thanks to a 3-year old 19.8 kW solar array on the property.  In the summer months, the electric company pays you for electricity!

The current asking price is $1,599,000.

This is an ideal location to get away from it all yet it is still located near championship golf & 1 hour to Milwaukee and Fox River Valley, 50 minutes to Green Bay & 3 hours to Chicago.

The Lodge at Steinthal is known regionally and is advertised nationally on VRBO, HomeAway and Airbnb and could serve as a private guest home or a turnkey business easily expanded into a potential wedding destination or for corporate events/parties.

The property is for sale by owner and will be shown by appointment for serious buyers with bank pre-approval.  We would be happy to provide more information to anyone with serious interest in a private setting.  Give us a call at 920-980-5808 or email us at dan@steinthal.com with any questions that you might have.
