The Log House

Explore the Log House at Craftsman Farms, Gustav Stickley’s rustic country estate and a National Historic Landmark. Largely restored to its 1910 - 1917 appearance, the Log House at Craftsman Farms is the only home Stickley designed and built for his own use. 

This basic tour lasts approximately one hour and takes visitors through the two main floors of Stickley's dream home, offering an in-depth look at Stickley's life and work. Our knowledgeable docents afford every visitor the opportunity to ask questions and discuss areas of interest.

Tours depart from the Museum Shop.

Advance registration is not required for this tour.

Holiday Decorations

Beginning November 27, the Log House will be festooned for the holidays in period style with a focus on Gustav Stickley's own ideas about the season. Using holiday greens, pinecones, and the home's forest palette, the decorations bring nature indoors and spotlight the Arts and Crafts movement's emphasis on finding beauty in simplicity and natural materials.


North Cottage Exclusive

On three special Saturdays, your paid admission to the Log House grants you access to the decorated North Cottage as well. See period holiday decorations as they might have been in a home with children, as the Cottages were where two of Gustav Stickley's daughters, Barbara and Mildred, lived with their small children over a hundred years ago. A must-see remarkable treat!  November 28, December 5 and December 12 only.
