iPhone-o-Gram! Cabin #2!

On our way home from the mountains –

It looks like we have another cabin in the running!

This one is actually closer to where we now live, would be about an hour and a half to two-hour drive, and we really liked it.

More photos and info to follow – It's 2pm and we havent had lunch yet --starvation is setting in!

Like I said... I am so glad I'm not making this decision.... they are both lovely!

I see you sitting outside on the porch with a hexie quilt on your knees and keeping your hands busy with the next quilt...
This one looks so good from the outside!

You and your DH seem to have picked out to see some real beautiful cabins this weekend...

Good luck on finding the perfect cabin for you both...

...and now enjoy lunch ;)

Beth said...

What a view! and closer to home! It's fun to go cabin hunting "with" you - I get to enjoy seeing the possibilities and don't have to make the tough decisions!!! I so enjoy all that you share.

oooh!

Linda Denton said...

Love all the porch area and love big porches to put a swing and anything else to enjoy the view.

I'm already liking the looks of this one with that wrap-around porch and balcony. Now if the inside lives up to the outside......

Julierose said...

I really like that wrap-around porch...and the view!! Hard decision to make--but a fun one,,,good luck Julierose

maureen said...

Don't suppose you could get both and alternate weekends?? Good luck making a decision! (of course, either one is a winner- so how can you chose badly?)

Debbie Lou said...

Oh, Wow! Decisions, Decisions! They both look great from here. Enjoy the process!

I really like the wrap-around porch with that big sliding glass door, if there's enough light inside that's where I'd put the quilt studio (you know you're going to quilt while your there ). This is my favorite, hard decision ~ eenie-meenie-minie-moe?

I think about two hours out would be just about right. Enough to really get away yet close enough that even a spur of the moment "let's go....." would work. I hope you get to settle on a perfect place soon so you can begin enjoying it.
I once spent months trying to sell a house after I'd taken a new job, so I'd try to get back to my house most weekends. It was close to a three hour drive, and I often wished it was just an hour closer.--And, no, we won't lament the fact that for way too long I had to commute 1.5 hours each way for a job, although it does make my .75 to 1 hour commute now feel a lot better.

I have always loved a huge porch. This is ideal to sit outside and stitch. Can't wait to see photos of inside.

Lynda Fournier said...

Our camp is 3 1/2 hours from home, just to far for a quick weekend get-away. Go with the 1 1/2 hour drive! You will enjoy it more.

My sister lived just outside Boone a long time ago. I was lucky enough to visit once and they lived in a cabin on a mountainside. luckily the mayor lived on the same street so it got plowed lots but sometimes it was difficult to get in or out in the snow. I think you should consider this unless it is a seasonal purchase?? it is beautiful there and I would love to live there too!!!good luck with your search!! I think you said retirement home, look for ease of access too, stairs, etc...you just never know! 20 yrs ago I would have poo pooed that comment, but not today! giggle go figure

Freda said...

Very nice.

Purl Buttons said...

WOW. I LOVE my wrap-around porch. You will love this!

Treadle Toes said...

THAT'S IT!! Covered decks all around!! I can see all the treadle machines on that huge deck!! You can even be outside in a gentle rain treadling with glee!! MY PICK!!

Irene Onderweegs said...

And: taaadaaa! No watering for the plastic plants on the porch!
Yippie!
Hope you will stitch the grandmothers' flowers there, would be very much an enhancement of the view =^}
Whatever you decide: make it very EZ to clean, because that will be the thing you want! All time devoted to leisure and play!
Love from a chilly and dark Amsterdam,
Irene

Mimi said...

Views galore !!!

Kim Andrews said...

How about two cabins? Naaah! just kidding. Another beautiful place. Can't wait to hear your decision.

Tami C said...

I'm thinking of the stairs myself. I have RA and just can't do stairs any more. When we retired we bought a 1 level home to retire in. Much easier on the ole joints. Either of the cabins look lovely. I'm just enjoying going cabin hunting with you guys. Thanks for taking us along!

Pam Kellebrew said...

Oooooooh! Wrap around porch~love it!

DianneB said...

Can't wait to see more pictures! Thanks for sharing your cabin shopping with us. Such fun to look at what your choosing.

We have a ski hill place and LOVE the difference from the valley - where things are starting to bloom - to a full on blizzard up here last night. Though its only an hour away, it feels much further.

kutiequilter said...

They are both lovely. And I'm sure you will love whatever one you choose!

Lori Huffman said...

Thanks for bringing us along on your cabin adventure! I hope you are enjoying the quest and I'm sure you'll enjoy your final choice when the time comes.

Pauline said...

Beauty again! Great porch! Looks a bit more roomy, that's a plus. Can't wait to see your pictures of the inside. Vacation house sounds more like what you're looking for rather than cabin. BTW: We LIVE in our vacation house, but then we're retired. L♥ to y♥u and DH.

Katie said...

Jealousy is starting to set in! :-)

Patti said...

Love the outside of this one too. It's kind of fun to shop vicariously through you! ;)

Brenda said...

Bonnie, I just love the porch on house number 2. But they both are gorgeous! I would love to be that far removed from neighbors.

Myrna said...

Decisions, decisions! Thanks for letting us be with you through the camera lens.

Gerda said...

You're showing us some very beautiful cabins! I love the porches on these houses. And the vieuws are stunning. It will be so nice sitting there and sewing, (or crocheting or knitting) I'm a little jealous. Wish we had mountains here in Holland. Groetjes, Gerda

Michelle said...

Gorgeous!

Nancy said...

Love the covered porches!

Mary Ellen said...

An embarrassment of riches. Also looks nice.

Sue Monsey said...

Go for the one with the least amount of yard work to do - you don't want to have that project always facing you when you arrive for a weekend - trust me - I know!!!!

Kelly said...

It's lovely!

That looks like a retreat cabin

ellen said...

bonnie, thanks for letting us tag along on your search for the perfect getaway cabin. closer means more time for quilting and less gas. as for the future with steps, it will take care of itself, so don't sweat it. just enjoy each day as it comes.

is there room for all of us to come on a retreat with you? that would be Way Cool!

ellen said...

oh, and if you use it for business, say hello to your newest tax deduction! and you didn't even have to give birth...

Farm Quilter said...

Great porch and deck!!! We could set up cots on the deck and sleep there if there are too many to sleep inside for the summer retreat!!! I can just see all of your followers and fans descending on you all at the same time for retreat!!! Obviously you have a tough decision here...the views at the other cabin were pretty spectacular!!!

Sandra B said...

So pretty from the front! Reminds me of the houses in Swiss mountains.

Beth said...

The wrap around porch, sigh, and a balcony. I can see why this is in the running.

Carla said...

Tough decisions ahead. Love that porch and balcony. What views. Being that close to home you may disappear every day to that cabin.
Lucky you
