I want to go back - now!
It has only been 2 days and I miss it!
Its so neat that you can be 3 miles from the highway and feel like you are in a different era. Crazy.
Finding the cabin was so easy. Seeing the porch in person was great and seeing how high up the mountains go. Upon entering the cabin, I was floored! The cabin looks really nice in pix, but it is even nicer in person. The furniture is all made out of wood, the rocking chairs are my favorite. The wifi worked great. The fireplace was ready to be lit, which plenty of wood, starters, smores making and even to make popcorn over the fire! The kitchen was the best stocked kitchen I have ever stayed at. When Mike says you can bake a cake or roast a goose, he's right. But, it was also the quality of all the kitchen things. Even a coffee grinder from 1930! Now I want one.
Both bedrooms are cozy and comfortable. I liked the duvet covers so much I already ordered one from LL Bean!
The built ins are so nice, he has everything from games to books galore. Too bad I didn't really start looking at that till my last night, but I read the entire book "8 days in the Blue Mountains" (i think that's the name). But, my most favorite part is the porch and sitting out there every morning having coffee as the sun came up over the mountain range and watch the chipmunks run around.
I did not use the loft, but the ladder to it is nice and strong and i think handmade. The loft is pretty large and I can see where kids would love to be up there.
It was also nice I could bring my "kids". As they enjoyed the creek and sniffing around. They were kind of depressed when they had to come back to the city! Heck on the day I was leaving my one, was 1/2 up the mountain behind the cabin! I have Boston Terriers, they are not mountain dogs, but they loved it! And thinking about how he looked down at me to get into the car is just priceless and makes me laugh. He just wanted to go to the secrect swing again!
I will certainly be returning because it's awesome and amazing!
Mike, thank you for letting people into your cabin!
