    My Dream

    So perfect, can't even hardly image it. I would get up early in the morning and have my coffee out on the deck over looking the lake. Watching the fish jump in the water, the ducks and geese swimming around, that would be so peaceful. Bonfires next to the lake, cat fishing at...

    I dearly love camping,

    and even though I can compete with the semi best of primative campers, I now prefer a little cabin by the lake. As a young girl in Michigan, we had our own private piece of a lake, Mandon was it's name. I dreamed I had built a large cabin set up on pillars on the lake. I have...

    Just sign me up. I'm thinking of buying some

    property to do just this when I retire. I would be simply content living without the city life on a daily basis. The crackle of a campfire, A log stove to heat the place up and perk my coffee. Sitting in old wooden chair and having a glass of wine at dusk. Hearing the wild come...

    Want to melt into nature

    and enjoy a tranquil , natural environment . City life is not for me. Maybe for a visit here & there, but not for permanent arrangements

    I did for two and a half years.

    It was like a four bedroom house but it had no foundations. It was made from ***** pine and was on a raft right at the edge of a tidal lake. Doors would swing open or shut depending upon the state of the tide. Bats lived in the roof. In the winter all manner of wildfowl...

    I Am Blessed Too!

    I bought and moved to a rural farm surrounded by forest on my farm as well a large state forest. It is hilly forested ground with a good clay and sand stone base under the top soil. So I already picked out my home/cabin site and built a pond just below it for a viewing and...

    Louis L'Amore Got Me Started

    His books inspired me. I started reading them on plane rides, a couple a month, back in 01 or 02. Fast reads. About men making their own way in life. Homesteading. Strong values of integrity and hard work and building a future. An unspoken dream continued from my days of...

    I truly do believe that's how I'm gonna end up.

    Somewhere off the grid, with a buttload of books, my musical instrument (the "oud" - rhymes with "food"), and either utter serenity or cynicism, I don't know yet.

    My aunt lives on a farm!

    When we visited, we stayed in a cabin by the lake. I don't think I had ever slept better. I would love to own my own cabin in the woods.

    I LOVE going on vacation in a trailer home

    (close enough) next to a lake about an hour from my house. It's a rental thing you just call in a week before and the guy who owns these trailer houses will find one for you to rent for however long (a few days or all summer). My friend lets me come over when her mom, sisters...

    That sounds sooo perfect,

    honestly! Perfect scenery, the smell of nature, the beauty of the lake, the surrounding of woodland creatures, the peacefulness of the environment... Just seems so stress free and relaxing... Not sure about the cabin though... I think I would prefer an actual house like my...

    I do! Well..about 25 minutes by car from my

    *sigh*

    I'll never do it, I know--far too settled in my home for about 35 years now---but it would be a dream to live on a couple of acres, preferably on tall hills or low mountainside, surrounded by trees, with a stream or two running into a small lake. There might even be a tiny islet...

    Not just any cabin, I want a place like the

    glasshouse in Sotheby's Auction. Relocated near a lake surrounded by trees. The peace you can get is so worth it. And the best thing, you are living with the one you love most.

    Summers

    i've designed the cabin

    and located the property but now i need to start compromising to make the funds meet the dream. maybe some square footage needs shaving and a few more windows and doors. what if i downsize the mountain stream to a creek or maybe a running facet.
