Is cigarette smoke a deal breaker?

Hi everyone. My wife and I are considering purchasing a real log home but there is one problem with it. The existing owner has lived in it for 25 years and smoked cigarettes inside the entire time. We have no idea if it would be possible to get rid of the smell. There are currently only one or two windows that open to air it out. Has anyone dealt with this issue? Specifically wondering about issues with the logs as we plan to rip out carpet etc. Thanks in advance for any help!
