Mountaintop Ranch Revelry
When Bonny and Alan Shuptrine began house hunting in 2017, they weren’t sure what they were going to find. After seeing a home for sale that was situated at the end of an alluring driveway, the couple arranged a tour on Fourth of July weekend.

“The house needed a lot of work,” says Bonny. “It had low ceilings throughout the whole house, there was pink carpet everywhere, and the back porch was just this tiny, rickety thing.”
With a thick layer of fog cloaking the mountain on the day of their visit, Bonny and Alan weren’t sold on the home, but just before they were about to leave, a break in the fog came and revealed a captivating view that suddenly made the home one they couldn’t refuse.
After months and months of renovation, the Shuptrines have turned this relic of a ranch home into a rustic retreat that has become a haven for good times with family and friends.
