I Would Like to Live In Log Cabin In the Woods

    Well, it's no so much

    that I want to live there... It's that I have a specific memory of a log cabin. We ended up there somehow, alone, with a picnic basket filled with grapes and cheese and crackers... and a bottle of red wine. The weather was cold outside, so we bundled up together under a...

    I think it would be amazing to live in a log

    cabin! Of course, I would need a TV & internet connection!!lol But seriously...nice & quiet...could just sit & read if I wanted to. Wouldn't be tempted to go to the store & spend money, because I would be in the mountains. Would love to have a spacious cabin..maybe one of...

    Oh I love the woods and want to live in them.

    There is something comforting about being surrounded by trees and their canopy overhead. Then a nice opening for a little log cabin. Doesn't need to be much. A nice lofty open space with just the essentials. Some yard but don't want to have to mow too much. Enough for the...

    Stranded...

    The snow is falling...spreading a wintery blanket across the landscape. A whiteout is coming. I can see it rolling in from my frost covered window. In the distance, beyond the crystal trees, I see something moving. Blurred by the falling flakes of white, I can't quite make out...

    My Dream

    In my dreams i picture a beautiful log cabin, nestled against a backdrop of trees with a lake or river in front - in the summer the opportunity to go swimming, but would have snow on the ground in winter with a log fire, soft squashy sofa to cuddle up on with someone specialwhere...

    I've always wanted my own private cabin to just

    melt away with nature and chill with. It's just so peaceful in the woods.

    I would like to do that with someone.

    I would cook, clean, fish, and garden. Do what we want , when we want. No cares in the world. Sit in the nude and just enjoy nature!

    I actually live in a small three bedroom house

    in the woods. Sadly its not a "log cabin" but its quaint. Its located on a river just a couple miles from the ocean. There is a hawk that lives in a tree behind my house and an owl living in a tree right next to the house. Deer frolic in the yard, bunny rabbits scamper around...

    Detached, lovely brick fire,

    heavy rain outside and snuggled up in a warm blanket with some ice-cream. May sound odd to many but I will admit, that's one of things I'd love in a log cabin in the middle of woodland.

    Life In A Log Cabin

    I would indeed love to live in a log cabin in the woods near a stream with nature all around me. My father was actually born in a little log cabin that was built by his father. Then when he was a little older my grandpa built a much larger log cabin. When my father was born the...

    The privacy of a log cabin in a secluded area

    For a few months of the year.

    I love nature, the woods and the idea of being in a cabin so close to nature is such a calming thought. Any season brings with it a special beauty, sitting in a lovely log cabin watching the snow fall outside. I would be so happy.

    Life In the Woods; a Testimony of Peace and Solitude.

    Actually I do live in a cabin in the woods. I am now 40 years old and for the last four years I have been living out a dream that has been on my heart since I was 8 years old. My life is a simple one, of work and prayer. My spirituality is key to my life in solitude. I am a...

    I would love to live in a cabin with someone who loves me and that I love. I want to go on hikes and take pictures. I want to come home and still feel like I'm in paradise. I want to have to be concerned about bears and bugs. I want to watch my lover chop wood for the evening...

    I dislike city life. Since the age of almost 24,

    city life for me is like a necessary break from real life - a life away from all the noise, clutter and confusion, a life which is calm, serene and soul-enriching, a life closer to nature and its magnanimity. That real life could be in the woods, on the mountains, besides a lake...

    A Hermit's Paradise. It has always been a dream

    of mine to live in a log cabin in the woods. It has to be secluded and it has to be modern on the inside. That is my hermit's dream. It would need to be modern on the interior; I am, after all, a computer nerd. I would also need constant access to the internet. We do get rather...

    Well not a LOG cabin

    but I'd like house in the rain forest. Just the idea of waking up to the smell of rain and the sounds of all the extraordinary animals. Just seems like paradise to me. (Except for the snakes)

    I enjoy nature. I enjoy quiet.

    I’d like to be in a clearing in the woods so I can go outside in the evenings, lie in a hammock and count stars. Deer and squirrels for neighbors…birds chirping overhead. Not having to deal with a lot of people on a daily basis is very appealing to me. Even just a...

    When I went to live in my foster family they would take me out jeeping with the jeep club, fishing, hunting, hiking, swimming, boating, camp fire chit chatting, it was the most amazing thing I had ever experienced. I was able to feed a Canadian goose, chipmunks, squirrels by...

    My ideal place would be to be somewhere in the

    woods, I'm not a beach person, more of a lake person. I grew up around mountains and my grandfather lived in a log cabin. I remember when my dad and my Uncles built it. It wasn't one of those fancy ones like you might see on tv. Just a small simple one, one that looked very well...

    I would love to get up in the morning

    and go cut wood for the fireplace. Sit on the front porch and listen to animals. No neighbors right next door, crisp mountain air. living just to live, off of the land. This is my utopia.
