Cabin in the woods
« on: August 03, 2015, 07:02:12 PM »
A friend of mine is looking to get away somewhere with lots of trees (woods), with maybe some type of water feature (lake, river, pond, stream, creek) close by. not necessarily need to be near hiking trails.
remote from other cabins is a MUST, like several acres between cabins. Prefer the lower 48 and some place with mild climate

any ideas?
everything is better with bacon!!!

Ruidoso, NM - though the acres between cabins might be an issue

There is probably something like that up in Acadia NP, Maine but I haven't personally been to Acadia (yet). Once you get into Maine it seems like the world falls away. The southern parts are somewhat built up but it doesn't take long and the crowds are gone. Probably because there isn't a road system like we have here in Texas. The roads are narrow and the speed limits are low. I was there in July 2014. You cannot help but relax and clear your mind when you are there.


This place (in Maine)- http://www.oldcomfortable.com/guesthouse.html


is in the woods with a lake out the back door and a bay across the street. It's as quiet as the South Rim at midnight most of the time. But it's about 100' from a very small road and kind of in a community. I spent many hours on the back porch editing images and reading. The porch looks out over a lake. The people that rent it are in their 70's and they do not mess with you. I walked down and watched the tide move (it moves 10'-15') and just chilled with my camera a lot of times. There's a kitchen... a small living room. Personally, when I was there, I was at the back of the house or walking around the wooded area unless I was sleeping.


I attached a KMZ file for the cottage. (resized because the forum makes things wonky sometimes)



View from the back porch





Front of the cottage





Hatchet Cove (across the street. This was shot a short walk down the road from the cabin)





I guess I don't have anything from low tide uploaded... the image above and below are mud flats at low tide





Iconic lighthouses are no more than an hour away and only because the roads are narrow and speed limits are low.

Not anywhere near roughing it here, but the wife and I stayed at this place in Shenandoah, VA.  No one nearby, direct river access to the Shenandoah River, and Shenandoah NP nearby.
