More Cabin Reveal!


I was afraid to post these photos, but things are going along so swimmingly well that it looks like we will close on July 3rd.

I have uploaded photos to a photo album….some from our first look early spring before leaves, and of our last visit.

This should give you a good idea of why I am in love with this place!

If you can’t view the slide show , click the image below to go directly to the album.

The nice thing is most furnishings will be included.  We can take our time replacing items with what we really want….

SO EXCITED!!

Sorry if you get tired of hearing about this cabin again and again and again and again....but I just can't contain myself on this dream!


Cabin!!

Today I hope to get that Elna Grasshopper out of its army green case and see about getting it up and sewing! SO FUN!

What a beautiful cabin! You even have firewood to get you started. I hope you can spend lots of time there. Love it, love it, love it!! I am so happy for you!

scraphappy said...

Congratulations. I hope everything goes just as it should. There seem to be several beds in need of quilts. Where is the sewing room?

Design Originals by KC said...

What a blessing that cabin is for you guys :) Hope you plan on not just renting it out but having a quilt cam weekend or something so we can come and sew with you! lol Kathi

Deanna W said...

Just a rustic cabin in the woods...NOT!! It is beautiful!You have good reason to be so excited.Yes it is in need of some quilts everywhere but that will come with time. Can't wait for quilt cam at the new cabin.

sally said...

It all looks and sounds great Bonnie! The furnishings look very nice. Once you put some of your quilts on the beds and walls, it will transform into "your" cabin. I bet you will end up liking some of the furniture more once it becomes yours. And won't your antique mall browsing be more fun when you have a mountain cabin to decorate/furnish.....Congratulations (almost!)!

Liz in KY said...

I saw that guest bedroom quilt (the pinky-mauve one) and thought, "I know what Bonnie's going to replace first!" Congratulations on finding the cabin of your dreams - may closing be speedy and uneventful - have fun making it your own!!!

elively said...

Congratulations! With your quilts on the beds and walls it will be perfect! I'm so happy for you and DH. I know you will make some wonderful memories there. I hope you are able to do quilt cam from there so we can "share" it with you. I can understand why you want to talk about it. I certainly would too!

Faith Kayajian said...

Bonnie,
Congratulations!!! So happy for you. I hope you make tons of wonderful quilty, family memories here. You work so hard it is wonderful that you will have a beautiful retreat to run and relax in!
Faith in Maine

bertiequilts said...

I was just thinking that all it needs is some quilts on the walls to make it all yours Bonnie... and of course, all the parking space! that is really a bonus... just sitting on the porch and looking at the scenery and the mountains... what an inspiration.. so how long will it be before you have a new quilt designed with your new home in mind?

Wendy Kruskie said...

Congratulations! I can see why you are excited. I love the staircase. It will be relaxing to drink coffee in the morning in those rockers.

Pam Kellebrew said...

Fabulous! I'm so happy for y'all~~and (can't lie) a weeeeee bit green. I would have to be drug away forcibly to leave such a sweet spot.

kathyinozarks said...

congrats! What a gorgeous "cabin" kinda cool that everything in the home stays as well

Pauline said...

Oh how peaceful! So many possibilities for you to put your special touch everywhere. I love the little gazebo, every room, the tool shed, all the fire wood ready for winter. Just can't figure out what that big black thing is at the top of the stairs? I can just see a Christmas tree in the den. Hope you can cut your schedule down a little next year so you can enjoy it more. Happy for you.

Dora, the Quilter said...

Looks like a dream come true. I am so happy for you! (And how far in time and miles from your "regular" home?
Oh! Maybe you could have some "treadle retreats"!

Mary Ellen said...

Well, nothing wrong with the furnishings. A few quilts on the beds and it's Bonnie-ized. I am very jealous. I have a mind's eye picture of Bonnie sitting in a rocker on the porch while hand quilting.

Jan said...

I would NEVER leave! It is perfect and beautiful, right down to the furnishings! You are truly blessed and so deserving of a place like this!

45th Parallel Quilter said...

Janet O. said...

Debra Dodge said...

Peaceful, tranquil...beautiful.

Jackie Timms said...

Faaaaaaaaaaaabulous!! I gasped out loud when I saw the fireplace -amazing ! (glad no-one is in the office with me) Enjoy!

Jo said...

It's so nice that you have all the furnishings too. You work so hard...you deserve a beautiful place to get away.

Paula said...

How exciting for you. It is beautiful. Just looking at the pictures was relaxing. Enjoy! You deserve it!

Mary said...

It' is so awesome that the buyers were motivated and that you will get to enjoy your dream cabin so soon. I'm with Janet O, we need to plan a joint trip to your 1st Fellow Blogger's retreat! How many Red White and Blue quilts do you have to Celebrate? Maybe you can get one made quick...

Nikki said...

Congratulations. It is lovely.

Quilter Kathy said...

Heaven on earth! So happy for you and your family!
How about CabinCam?!?!

Crickets Corner said...

Congratulations! Good things come to those who work for it and it looks like a great thing came to you. It's perfect and I can see you enjoying the autumn leaves while working on your quilts. Have fun with this new chapter in your life. Thanks for letting us come along for the ride.

terriquilts said...

I found my room, just let me pack a few things and I'll be right over... Seriously, it is beautiful and I'm overjoyed for you! You deserve it and thank you for everything you do for all of us!

marie said...

I'd live there full time, it's beautiful. Wonderful place, so happy for you.

Kendra Grove said...

What a nice place. So homey, just needs those store bought bedspreads replaced with your own quilts. HUMM, think you have any extras just laying around??

stitchinpenny said...

Love the cabin - it reminds me of a very nice B&B we stayed in in NC. Hope you enjoy your getaway as much as I enjoyed the B&B.

Cathy Jones said...

Beautiful! I also would live there full time. May you create many memories there, congrats!

Amy Laura said...

I'm so happy for you to have found this cabin that will bring you great joy and many happy memories. I would want to live there full-time! It just needs a bit of quilty homeyness added, and you are set to relax!

sbh said...

Bonnie....it is absolutely stunning!! Congratulations on finding this gem!

Honeybee Quilter said...

Beautiful!

rondiquilts said...

This is YOUR blog, brag all you want! I would be pinching myself to make sure my good fortune was for real. You are deserving, no need to apologize.
You are so right about making memories. Like you I turned 50 in last couple years. I live in KY, dear aunt and uncle from Florida have a summer retreat in western NC. For the last 40 years I have spent summers there off and on. I have memories there as a child and so do my grown children. Their house is much like yours minus those spiral staircases. Beautiful country. Enjoy! Did you ever say? How close did you get it from home? I know you were trying to keep it around 2 hours. I think this is wonderful for you and your family.
Rondi

applepiepatchwork said...

I love the staircase and all the fireplaces. The kitchen is wonderful too, but if I had a cabin like that, I'd just sit on the porch all day, enjoying the view and sewing my heart out.

WIPPYSPLACE said...

I call dibs on the rocker by the fireplace :-) I think I saw 4 bedrooms? are you gonna have retreats :-) well--you deserve a place to get away from it all! love the scenery! Carole

Sandie said...

Bonnie- The "cabin" looks like a dream come true, nd very familiar to me... My husband and I just installed hardwood floors in a home with the exact same exterior footprint, and probably the same floorplan, and I fell in love with those decks while we were working there. The home we were working in was in a similar landscape in WV, so I can imagine how peaceful and relaxing your getaways will be! Hopefully it is close enough to your home that you willl get the chance to enjoy it often! congrats again!

Quilting Nonnie said...

I'm not tired of hearing about your fantastically wonderful cabin! I'm living vicariously through you. Your cabin is a gem of a place. I'm sure you make many memories (and quilts!) there.

Prima Donna said...

There is something glaringly missing from those beds and walls...QUILTS! I'm sure you can remedy that ASAP.

Randy D. said...

Bon, it looks gorgeous! Congratulations! I can't wait to come and sew with you there!!! I'm ready any time you can squeeze in a weekend!! Love ya,

Kim Andrews said...

Looks wonderful! Definitely the type of cabin I love! Can't wait until you add some quilts to it. Definitely needs that!!!

PegD said...

Bonnie, what a wonderful cabin. I just love that knotty pine. Reminds me of my parents cabin in Minnesota woods my dad built so many years ago. I could just picture all the hand sewing happening on that porch! Best wishes Lucky Duck!

orchardquilter said...

Beautiful and peaceful. Congratulations! Grab a favorite beverage and rock away on that front porch to relax--a little piece of heaven. Thanks for sharing your pics.

Karen said...

Lovely. I can only imagine how excited you are. I can see many sewing retreats with friends in your future.

QuiltinLibraryLady said...

Wonderful, and great views. I have a small house so that looks more like a mansion than a cabin to me. You and your family will have a great time making memories there.

Jean said...

Wow! Talk about your home away from home! That's great! It would be hard not to enjoy a wonderful place like that. Good for you!

Emelia Harrison said...

You always wanted to adopt a daughter didn't you? I'm available and would be happy to live in the basement...lol Congratulations to you and the DH on a great dream come true. I wish you good luck and many years of happy sewing!!!!

Linda in CT said...

Bonnie, I know the feeling. We bought our get-away house in Vermont last August and love being there whenver we can. We have hosted ski week-ends and girl friend quilt shop weekends and can't get enough. Too bad that for a few more years earing aliving is going to get in the way. Where will you hang your barn quilt??
Congratulations to you and your family. There will be many good memories made there I'm sure.

Tami C said...

Oh Bonnie! You can talk about the cabin as often as you like. We are all very happy for you and DH! It's so wonderful to have your dream come true! Thanks for bringing us along for the search.
