iPhone-o-Gram! Cabin Searching!

I am almost afraid to post these photos –

We have found what we think will be our perfect mountain getaway – but it is a big big decision to make

This little cabin is not all "that" little! But it will fit our family for family gatherings in the years to come.

There is even ample room for Quilty friends to gather for long sewing weekends, or even whole quilting retreat weeks – that is if I can work some free time into my extra busy schedule!

The next step – making an offer!

More pictures to follow – this is getting very exciting! :-)

Julierose said...

Gorgeous place--at 70 yrs old, I think about stairs, etc.!! But, I know you are a lot younger than DH (and he is 74--)and I are...you just may want to think about one floor living...just a thought. It is really a lovely place though...hugs, Julierose

Judymc said...

How beautiful! I'm so happy for you guys! Go for it!

Sue Monsey said...

It's beautiful. The size is really a plus ... our little beach house is small and large groups are definitely a problem. A large group is anything more than three of us quilting along with my husband who always wants to come along and hang out - he always volunteers to be our slave - does the cooking, etc. if we let him come. Gotta love him! I would definitely think about a larger place so more friends could come and sew for weekends at a time.

Barb in Mi said...

Beautiful! And you so deserve it! Make an offer - and a whole blog & quilt community will send good vibes along to make your dream come true ;-)
Ok, good vibes on the way - from Michigan to you.

Judy D in Upstate NY said...

Lovely! I hope your dream becomes a reality!

miss jamee said...

Ann Mary Wagner said...

It's beautiful Bonnie! I so hope it works out for you. What a great place to dream and sew.

quiltergirl said...

That would be so tempting. Good for you. Just following your adventures makes me dizzy. After all the scary stuff going on with Libby I hope, hope, you will not overdue things. Take time to relax and enjoy all those beautiful pictures you take. I hope this gets to be your retreat.

Beth said...

It looks beautiful! Good luck.

Karendianne said...

This is 100% more appalling to me than the others I saw from your pictures. Of course I know it's your choice your 2nd home your $$.
For my husband and I (we are older) I want to be near services like minutes from the hospital on the worst stormy day,My husband has had heart problems .So i hope you guys enjoy the heck out of your 2nd home. It looks like a great stair way for photos of an engagement or wedding.
I bet thanksgiving would be so cozy oh and Christmas

Janet said...

Best of luck! It is beautiful. Fingers crossed.

pdudgeon said...

Bonnie, i think you've found a winner!
i especially noticed all the nice spacious parking area, and that the place has both basement and first floor access. that will come in handy when it snows, as will that wonderful fireplace and nice views. also very handy to have your own beautiful built-in stairmaster (aka spiral staircase) to use every day for exercize, and probably room as well to have a lift built to the second floor, should you need it in future years.

45th Parallel Quilter said...

Fingers crossed for you! How exciting!!

piffle said...

OO La La! Just looks terrific. You are only young once, do it, and enjoy!! From an oldster.

Debra Graham said...

Gorgeous place, how will you get furniture up that spiral staircase?

Bj said...

How Beautiful is that, if it's meant to be it will, if not, don't worry, there is a better one waiting for you, Wishing You All the Best! Bj.

Patchwork Penguin said...

OMG Bonnie, it's beautiful! If you need a cabin sitter... I'll gladly volunteer :)

Karen Pfeffer said...

Winner, winner chicken dinner! Buy it quick!

Vickie Blose said...

wonderful

Terri said...

I think E Burns has a quilt retreat cabin. We could help you pay for it if you just create your own mini- Elm Creek Quilts. ��

Jan Duffy said...

I love it :)

Carla said...

Hope as I catch up on my reading I find out you got it. The cabin is gorgeous and the view.
