Mountain Cabin/Lodge

Did you ever have a dream that you just can’t let go?


Love log cabins


The serenity and beauty of the mountains is less than an hour’s drive away.

It’s close enough to make the trip quite often.  We find mountain trails to hike when weather permits.

Often, I entertain the thought of actually living in one of those homes we pass.

My imagination starts designing the blue prints for this imaginary cabin/lodge.

Some days I imagine a small cabin; not much to clean… and other days nothing less than a lodge will do.

After all,  how much would I enjoy a mountain home without having room for family and friends to visit often?

Although my imaginary design changes, some things remain the same.

There must be lots of windows to soak in the views.             


And there must be porches.


A place to have morning coffee and/or a glass of wine while watching the sun set. “sigh”.


I’m enjoying these pictures from pinterest  until……..,,,,………..… my dream

becomes a reality.
