I Want To Live In A Cabin In The Woods, By A Lake

    Spoiler Alert: This is SUPER embarrassing!

    For the majority of my life I had it in my head that I would go to college and work part time until I got married- then move with my husband to the remote forests of Alaska to live happily ever after. It wasn't until the tenth grade when I was typing up my '13th Year Plan' that...

    Great Bear Lake

    I'm the type of guy who would like a cozy cabin on Great Bear Lake up in Canada's Northern Territory. Having grown up in the Adirondack wilderness of northern NY, I appreciate nature, solitude and self reliance. I could leave the turmoil of large populations and fighting one's...

    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...

    It'd be nice to have some land in the country

    to escape to. Quiet. Pure nature. Clean smell. See animals. Hunt. Do whatever I want on my own land.

    My Sanctuary

    I have a cabin in the woods by a lake, but I only ever get a chance to go there with my family. And I'd like to go there to escape them, not be trapped there with them. What would be even better is a cabin in the woods, by a lake, backed by a mountain. That would be my ultimate...

    Serenity

    There is no better word to explain how I'd feel than serenity if I were to live in the woods on a lake. A slower paced lifestyle and the calmness of staring at the lake in the early morning would be like a vacation from home.

    Always dreamed about

    that cabin. Beside a lake makes it even better. Well this year I finally found my piece of paradise. Small house, 5 acres, with a river along one side. It was a long time coming but was worth the wait. Now all I need is a beautiful lady to complete the picture. Any takers?

    Walden-Esque

    After reading Thoreau's Walden, the idea of living in a cabin in the woods is a really appealing idea. Living off the land, surrounded by nature and the world is such a spiritual thought. Honestly, I think I could only do it for short amount of time, maybe for a month or so. But...

    And The Three Bears

    When I was little we would go to the lake to camp for vacation. I love camping, and maybe living in a cabin in the woods could be like a permanent camping trip!

    Walden Pond!

    In a college English class, we had to read Thoreau's "Walden." That book made such an impact on my life. I was already a nature-loving, solitary weirdo. The book just made me want to become a hermit even more. My favorite line was "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation...

    It Has Always Been My Dream Home

    When I was a teenager I used to attend youth retreat events sponsored by my church. One of the "ice breaker" questions they use to ask us as a way of having us get to know each other was "What kind of house would be your ideal place to live?" The name of this group was always...

    Wild And Free

    I like idea of living a rugged lifestyle. I've always felt that Grizzly Adams had the right idea except I'm not sure I personally would wanna buddy up to a bear, but hey to each his own, live & let live is a good motto. Besides if you throw rocks his bear might eat you!

    *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...
