The story of True North Log Homes is best expressed through the satisfaction of many True North log home owners. Our commitment to providing the beauty and ambience of a traditional log home lifestyle, while integrating the latest in technology, has proven to be a winning combination.

We toured the factory in March, 2016, retired and moved north to western New York in June, and began construction on our “forever home” in September, 2016.

Wow! What an exciting first year of retirement! The design we developed with True North is beautiful, and the engineering that has gone into these homes is amazing!

Mark Wrightman, our sales guy, was a genuine pleasure to work with, and the staff at TNLH was responsive and helpful whenever we needed them.

We moved in July 1, 2017, and within hours (literally!) hosted a large family reunion to rave reviews! The house is just a bit rustic (it is a log home!), warm and comfortable, and elegant all at the same time! Even our adult children, who thought we had lost our minds when we announced we were moving north, have fallen is love with it.

Spectacular!

We went through multiple log home factory tours and decided on True North. They seemed above and beyond the competition with patented technology for joining the logs together. We also chose them because it is a family run business, second generation I think. They delivered an excellent product and went above and beyond to satisfy our families needs with our cottage. Before you purchase be sure to check them out. They are the complete easy button in my eyes, get a 5 star product with zero worries on the customers end.

Bob Dehass review True North Log Homes

Awesome company, appreciate their donations to sick kids hospital in Toronto. Excellent product thoroughly enjoyed my visit and would recommend you stop in. They are my choice when we build in Burks Falls.

I have been to the information seminar they hold in Bracebridge and I have seen their displays at other conventions. Great Family Business run with efficiency and in a friendly manner. I’m counting down the days till my log home arrives!

“If you have ever dreamed about a log home — owning one is a thousand times better! Working with True North’s designers and engineers was a wonderful experience — they made our dreams a reality. Guests are amazed at our home’s design, especially the ‘Kingpost’ technology used to support the roof.”

“The whole process working with True North has been quite rewarding. I was able to have my home stained to make it look quite natural, like it’s been here for a long time. They were very good about working with me to figure out what sort of design we could put together to get what I needed. We did a very good job. It’s been a great experience. I’ve enjoyed it!”

“This is the log home for anyone who appreciates perfection! If you can’t find the perfect home – then build the perfect home. It’s hard to find a log home that combines elegance, warmth and personality. True North made this a home we love to come home to!”

– M. & S. Kramer –

Excellent family business with great staff to work with. We enjoyed the design process, build process, & ultimately love living in a log home! It is a very relaxing and warm environment perfect for life in Muskoka.

We purchase our home from someone else and it’s absolutely beautiful. I have had no problems with speaking with them about upkeep of the logs inside and outside. The windows are beautiful and it looked like a show home when we came to look at purchasing it.

Love my cottage, outstanding fastening methods and design team was excellent through the process!

“Ultimately, the knowledgeable staff, their passion for excellence, and the company’s confidence in offering a 25-year “Zero” Air Infiltration Warranty made it clear to me that this was the log home I was searching for. I talked to several companies, but when it came down to it, True North stood out as the best choice.”

We are extremely satisfied with process/outcome and would highly recommend this to all future log home buyers.”
