Betsy’s ‘Dream’ Cabin


Shortly after Betsy and I got married we started talking about finding our retirement home.  At first we talked about finding a log cabin.  Betsy really liked the idea of a cabin on the top of a hill with lots of trees around it.

It didn’t take us long to discover that our ‘dream’ house was way beyond our wallet.  We finally found our house in the Glade.  It’s not a log cabin, but it does have wooden siding.  It’s on a hill, but not at the top.  But it does have lots of trees around it.  And we thoroughly love it.

But that doesn’t keep us from keeping an eye out for a cabin that would fit into our dreams.  Last summer we went to Virginia for a reunion of a branch of Betsy’s family.  While driving through the country side near Big Stone Gap, we spotted the cabin in the picture above.  All Betsy said was ‘Ohhhh….’.

It’s not on top of a hill, but hey, we can’t have everything.

    That is such a picturesque setting. I will keep my eyes open for a great deal on a cabin. We could all plant roses and bird watch together!

    It’s lovely. Hope you find your (Betsy’s!) dream cabin before too long, and at the right price! By the way – the house in the picture doesn’t exactly look like a ‘cabin’ to me!!

    What a beautiful secluded spot for a dream ‘cabin’ ;–)
    Hope you find one on a hilltop that’s reasonably price to make your own.
    Hugs and blessings,

    George: Well, officially a Happy 67th Birthday. It looks like you had a great trip from Becky’s blog and the birthday celebration looks like fun. That was a neat photo of the log cabin.

    Well I meant to say Betsy’s blog, these old minds play tricks.

    I was always in love with the idea of owning a cabin in the woods myself. Don’t think that will ever happen but it’s always nice to dream
