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! :-)

  43. 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

  47. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  48. 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 ;-)

  76. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Fingers crossed for you! How exciting!!

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

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

    ReplyDelete
  80. 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.

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

    ReplyDelete
  82. Winner, winner chicken dinner! Buy it quick!

  83. 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. 😊

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