About Richard and Katie Troyer

Richard has been a log home builder for 27 years. Richard and Katie have both seen their partners go through cancer and pass away. Then God so graciously brought us together in 2005. Richard had 11 children and Katie had 9 which gives us the grand total of 20. One passed on in 2000 so we cherish the others though most of them are now married and do not live at home. 55 grandchildren.

We enjoy all the natural beauty around us. We greatly appreciate what ' Our loving Father in Heaven' has created for our enjoyment.

' The answer is Jesus with-in'

Richard and Katie Troyer purchased this lodge in 1998

Why Richard and Katie Troyer chose Tustin

We are using this beautiful log home as a model as we share it with others. Totally relaxing!

What makes this lodge unique

I always enjoyed water, The depth of the lake and the high ground with its ever green trees all around is what drew me to this location. You will have to experance it yourself to know what i am saying. Bond with your children and grandchildren as you spend time together--------Richard & Katie-------

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Mr.Troyer & Family; Just want to say thank You for a wonderful stay at your "Waters Edge" Cabin; We loved all the exquisite decor of each room. We had an invigorating walk around the lake, but the highlight of the trip was the zip line experience. Your cabin is so inviting and it allowed plenty of room for 3 generation to interact.

Thank You again for a very enjoyable weekend. Mr. & Mrs Buck our Kids & GrandKids Too!

So peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Six of us sewer and knitters spent 3 lovely days here. We so enjoy the large great room area. We can all work and talk at the same area. This was our 2nd time to stay. Had some issues with the temperature in the lower level being too warm, but owners are now aware and told us they were working on it. Definitely a great place to get away from it all.

The log cabin was perfect, we had a party of 22 for a reunion that couldn't of fit better!

  • 5 of 5

The lake was great for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and swimming. We had a great time everyone commented we should re book for next year.

It's a very nestled and quiet place in the woods for the perfect get away. There was tons of trails and wildlife for the kids and adults to enjoy also. Thanks again for having us Richard and Katie!
