Log Cabin Retreat

I have many interests.  Let's see.....photography, baking, books, cemeteries, and we can just add real estate to that list.  

In our county there is a small cabin for sale.  Built in the 1820's, it was disassembled and moved to its present location.  



Updated plumbing and electric, along with river frontage on the property, are among its exceptional qualities.  




Your neighbor to the right is a flock of sheep.  To the left, far away, is the roof of a house.  




No phone, no internet, and no formal address make it the perfect weekend get-away for me.  

At 850 square feet it is a tiny place.  I told the girl of the house not to worry.  I would save her a shelf in the kitchen for a bunk space.

  1. That would be a lovely getaway. But it NEEDS a porch.

  12. This is PERFECT! How much land comes with it, and being a former realtor, I'm curious about what the asking price is for something like this in your neck of the woods?

    1. Karen, it comes with 44 acres and 5/8 of a mile in river frontage. The cabin is totally renovated on the inside, yet retaining all of its period details. All power to the cabin is underground, no views are spoiled :) Priced at $205,000.

  18. I've been reading the comments. It sounds wonderful. And sort of a good value? Do you watch Tiny House nation? They could make a show out of this sweet place!

    1. Anita, indeed they could as the interior has been fully rehabilitated with a new kitchen, etc...

    1. Jack, this is not a place I could live full time. I still need my space!

  20. Wow! It is amazing how much beautiful country one can own for such a modest price when you are away from major cities or major population areas. This would be heaven! I hope you are able to purchase it!!! My daughter and family recently purchased 8 acres of beautiful forrest land covered with pines and aspen not too far away from a major city in Utah. They paid around $110,000 and still have to build a cabin on it!

    1. Well, we would love to, but I doubt it. The price would have to come down a bit for it to be just a weekend place.
