"Total relaxation – Beautiful home with AMAZING
VIEWS AND BEDS!!! OMG! Can't wait to come
'Western Elegance' best describes this
custom home that is in the center of Nemo. This
lodge-style over 6000 sq ft home is part of Freebird
Ranch and sits on 2 of the entire 20 acres. The lodge
and lawn are yours exclusively. The Lodge is like
three entire houses together as one... The Lodge
sleeps up to 24 total, with 3 kitchens, 3 dining, 1
bar, 3 1/2 baths, and 3 laundries.
Each house at Freebird Ranch has it's own 60Mbs DSL
with fast Mesh WiFi and all 8 TVs have Roku streaming
of Netflix, Amazon Video, Music and more.
The Lodge at Nemo is the entire residence. No part of
the Lodge is shared with others, your entrances, yards
and decks are all exclusive to you. A (seasonal,
approximately June through September) 40' heated
salt water swimming pool and a rec-room with
pool-table, foosball, and exercise equipment are on
the Ranch property and are for all Freebird Ranch
guests (10am to 8pm). Also for all to enjoy is the
walking path along Box Elder creek.
The main floor (the Eagle) is an amzing 2600 square
feet of interior space. First, there is a beautiful
chandelier that spreads a glow throughout the foyer
and the floor to ceiling mossy rock gas fireplace. The
golden light really brings out the warmth of the red
oak wood flooring and the golden logs that frame the
great room. In the living room hangs our 6 foot wide
bronze eagle created for Bruce by his good friend and
bronze sculptor, Nick Swearer.
To your right is a full kitchen with cherry cabinets
and marble countertops. There is also a bar that sits
eight in comfortable leather and walnut bar stools.
The center of the kitchen is the commercial grade
Viking range. The refrigerator has filtered delicious
mountain well water. There is a dishwasher and the
range/oven even has a pot filler and a griddle. This
kitchen is set up for a chef and even has a
butler's pantry attached. There are two sinks, as
well! The kitchen is furnished with utensils, spices,
condiments, pots and pans, dishes, silverware and
The dining area has a Brazilia walnut oblong table
with eight chairs. There is a Brazilia hutch that
holds vintage dishes and silverware for use during
Throughout the great room's numerous windows you have
a view of the bluff. (We named our ranch Freebird for
many reasons, one of them being that we have so many
different species of birds that visit our property.
There are Eagles, Herons and Mountain Bluebirds, to
name a few.)
The magnificent fireplace is a double view unit and is
central to the great room. The comfortable fire is
seen when you enter the residence and when you walk
around to the living room. While in the living room,
sitting or standing, you have a beautiful view of the
bluff and the fireplace. This room is decorated in
softly hued fabrics and leathers and has a golden soft

with a streaming Roku and DVD player and lots of DVDs
The main master bedroom may be accessed through the
great room or through the mud room. This bedroom is
quite large and has two comfortable hotel quality
queen beds. In addition, there are two velvet club

stall with built in settee, a separate toilet, double

others, as well.
The other bathroom in the house is off of the foyer
and is a single vanity with a toilet. Bathrooms are
furnished with towels, tissue, various
over-the-counter medicines, some vitamins, toothpaste,
soap, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, makeup remover
wipes, q-tips, cotton balls, paper towels and more.
The second bedroom is accessed through the hallway to
the left of the foyer. This bedroom has two queen
platform beds with hotel quality linens. The design in
this room very relaxing with a love seat and club
chair to chill or read a book. There is a flat
screened television with video streaming and dvd in
the bedroom. There is a patio door with entrance to
the deck, as well.
There is a mudroom with a full sized washer and dryer
set, more counter and cabinet space and another sink.
We allow pets, but with rules. They must be on-leash
when outside, and be kenneled indoors when you go out.
We also supply lint rollers, upholstery cleaners, and
spot removers, if you should need it.
At the end of the mudroom's hallway there is a small
room and we have a small table and a few chairs there
for someone to work on art, or put a puzzle together.
In the Eagle there are stairs that take you downstairs
to The Heron:
Downstairs from the stairway entrance (which can be
locked) opens up into 2400 square feet of interior
space with patio doors out to the lower deck, which is
concrete. The flooring is Adura Tempo Steel (a light
gray vinyl tile). We chose this tile because it does
not require glue for installation, therefore helping
to keep our property free of VOCs.
The foyer has a double view fireplace, just like
upstairs, however, this one is brick. The kitchen is
danish modern, as is the dining room. The living room
is furnished with reupholstered vintage couches from
the 50s and 60s. The colors are soft and refreshing.
There is a television/Roku/DVD in the living room.
Under the stairs there is space for a closet and we
turned that into your own laundry room with full sized
washer and dryer. All windows in the Heron face the

platform beds with hotel quality linens. There is a
lounge area here, as well. This room has a patio door
to the lower deck. There is also a flat screen
television in the bedroom.
From the lower back deck, the top level back deck and
from the front of the residence you can access the
next space, The Bluebird:
Separate 1150 sqft space is the most private of them
all since it has no one living above or below. Upon
entering from the front of the residence there is a
foyer with a bench and coat hanging area. The first
thing you will see though is a floor to ceiling gas
fireplace and beautiful walnut furniture. And then the
view of the mountain from the floor to ceiling
windows. This view is spectacular!
There is a flat screen television with streaming Roku
and DVD player in the living room. The kitchen
cabinets are walnut and the counter tops are charcoal
gray. The flooring is the same gray tile that is in

cedar deck and allows you access to the Eagle. There
are numerous lounging areas on all of the decks, with
large capacity occupancy in mind. There are spaces, as
well that accommodate a smaller group.

bedrooms, each with two platform queen beds with hotel
quality linens. Bedrooms have radiant heat and flat
screen televisions. Rooms have been soundproofed.

For outdoor cooking we have three barbecues outside on
the grass. We do not allow barbecues on our decks. We
provide barbecue utensils, the propane, tin foil,
paper plates and plastic cups. If you use more than we
have, we ask that you provide those on your own.
You have entire Lodge and its greenbelt all to
yourself. The barn is detached and is about 75 feet
away from the lodge. It is a shared space. The pool
and rec-room is on another parcel and can be seen from
your deck. It is also a shared space. We have plenty
of parking at the Lodge and more by the storage
building. We also have a helicopter pad if you choose
to 'chopper' in.
We live in a property adjacent to this property, so we are close by if you need us.
