Our Little Cabin in the Big Woods!


The Main Lodge


Our rented Trappers Cabin. Really one room en suite with a tiny kitchenette.



The interior and exterior details are exceptional. Old shotgun rack.

A good place to blog.

Looking out the front door.

This is a hand-carved inlaid storage chest/coffee table.

The bed is made of lodge poles with a buffalo light headboard.

The backyard! A good place to chill out and swing and wait for critters to come and drink. You can see the cabin through the trees.

You never know who might amble on by!

Cheers to you from our little cabin in the big woods!

  1. I would like to experience stay in a log cabin. I think it just make you feel much close to the nature with the logs as the wall instead of a flat sheet rock.

    The outdoor scene is also fantastic but seeing the bear there concerns me a bit πŸ™‚

    1. I agree with you about the cabin & the bear. I am much more comfortable with coastal grizzlies because they like to eat salmon and don’t hunt as much. Still I was hoping for a sighting!! Cheers to you my friend~

  2. Remove your hooves… L-O-L! πŸ˜€
    The cabin is so beautiful! The color of the wood, the homey interior and the natural surroundings… this is how I imagine “paradise” to be!

  3. love the sign about removing my hooves πŸ™‚ and the gun rack… husband needs that but a bit bigger… no, i think not. a lovely place… it seems so peaceful. have fun!

    1. Somehow grizzlies seem cute to me too. I’ve never seen them do anything but graze on plants and berries, and eat fish. If one were to take an interest in me though, I would be decidedly unhappy! lol~

  4. As beautiful as this little cabin is inside and out – I do believe you’d have a hard time prying me off the front porch! Hot drink in hand, I’d be settin’ a spell until the bears wandered a bit too close!

    1. Yes I love Jackson Hole too and the Grand Tetons both in the glorious summer and winter for skiing! They are quite similar in vibe, but it is less crowded here now in late fall.

    1. Yes the salmon are running now! Bright red and beee-u-tee-ful! We give inland grizzlies lots of space. There are many places right now where you are required by law to walk in tight groups of four because grizzlies are active on these trails. We meet the most interesting people this way. Just hiked with a couple who own a wildlife refuge in the Adirondacks complete with wolves, eagles, owls!

    1. Cozy!!! What I didn’t include is that there is a jacuzzi tub in this one room cabin. Seemed a little personal, and well a tad gauche. This is my kind of roughing it! A bubble bath at the end of the day! lol~

  5. The Ingalls have nothing on you! Wow! Or Lincoln Logs, either. Just amazing. The “hoof removal” caveat was uh-DOOR-able!! πŸ™‚

    The bear drinking from the water was a perfect, peaceful end shot.

  6. I love you cabin, so adorable, like a fairytale – or even a history lesson! πŸ™‚ And your high technology laptop goes so well with all that ‘old world’ log cabin!! πŸ˜‰

  7. That is such a tranquil looking place I definitely want to join you now. So pleased to see it has internet connection right in the middle of all that wilderness, amazing…

  8. Wow, it would be hard to leave a place like that! Beautiful! Cindy, I was wondering if you would mind my featuring you and your photos in a post sometime — there are a handful of photographers that have been such an influence and that I’ve learned a lot from that I would like to post about, you having been such a wonderful encouragement and influence to me. I understand and will honor it if you would rather I not, and I do usually try to ask first, lol. Either way, I really want to thank you for all the motivation and encouragement you’ve given me since becoming a blogger!

    1. You have a natural wit and sense of humor that makes your blog a blast and your photography is just wonderful, so it is easy to encourage! I would be honored Becky and thank you for your encouragement! Cheers & hugz~

  9. Gorgeous Cindy! I’ve been south while you’ve been north…LOL Trading spaces is fun. I think that Cabin is so cute. My friends built one not too far from Jasper. I’ll have to share your post with her.

  10. Okay Cindy forgive the excessive jealousy I’m about to spit! I officially hate you! LOL No one should be privy to that kind of beauty unless they’re residents of Heaven. I’m not even joking when I say, that is the most beautiful place I’ve EVER laid eyes on. It’s been a dream of mine & my daughters to make enough money from our books that we can uproot & move to the West Coast, more specifically Washington State. Although we live in North Carolina, the Smoky Mountains, which is beautiful, we have always loved Washinton. (The Olympic Peninsula). This looks like the pictures we’ve seen of it. So I have to ask you now, where….or rather what state is this Heavenly place? Going to bed tonight & dreaming of YOUR cabin. lol

    1. First off people who are really jealous never admit it. The truth is these photos tapped into a dream you have of an ideal place. This is special and important when it happens because it helps you to visualize your dreams more clearly. I would guess from your response that you yearn for a simple life in the forest, amidst nature, in a cabin that exudes warmth and snugness, and is artfully lovely, yet rustic. I have been in such a cabin on The Olympic Peninsula in the Kalalach area (sp?) It does possess all these traits, a relatively temperate climate, yet rainy and lush.
      This particular cabin was in Alberta Canada in the Bow Valley. It does get hard winters.
      Dream and dream some more. It focuses your conscious and unconscious energies. If you really want it, you just may very well get it!
      Here’s hoping you do!!
