Receive useful tips & inspiration from Cabin Life
Cabin Life means different things to different people, to me it means peace, serenity, natural beauty, and ofcourse time with family and close friends. Its about firing up the BBQ and watching the sunset with a blazing campfire. Enjoying smores with roasted marshmallows or hot dogs on a stick. Looking at a night sky filled with stars and hearing the call of the geese as they settle in for the night. Watching a boat slowly make its way up the lake with fishing rods hanging off its sides. Cabin Life brings you nature at your door step. What better way to enjoy nature's gifts?
Going to the cabin/lake is like warping into a new world. I can leave the city stressed out and some time on the way there I forget all about "back home" problems. Which I don't even realize till we are on our way back and I think, "wow, I haven't thought about that all weekend." For me it is a place you go to re-create, re-charge and shake off restlessness.
Our first cabin (rental) was rustic - no electricity, no indoor plumbing and not heat or air. It was simple and uncomplicated. But the memories are GREAT: Pumping water outside and going to the out house in the pitch black of night. Playing kick the can, ghost in the grave yard or flashlight tag. Waking up with the birds to be the first and only ones on the lake. Sleeping in nooks or porch. Playing old maid, spoons and other games as a family around the table. Fire to cook or warm with. Exploring the lake below from the dock and trying to catch what we see. Treks in the woods searching for animals or sticks to carve. Sunsets over the lake and the call of loons and wildlife settling in.
The simplicity of the cabin allows for us to experience life because there are no unneccessary distractions (tv, computer, driving, stress...). The cabin is one of the few places where there is enough uniterupted time to get true relaxation and meaningful reflection.
