Our Cabin

Since I often mention our cabin getaway
I thought it was time to share
some photos...
It is located in the middle of Bald Eagle State Forest
in cental PA, an hour northwest of
Harrisburg and 45 minutes southeast
of State College. It sits on approximately three acres,
and is on a private lane with a about a dozen other
cabins, all weekenders. As of yet no one lives
their full time but we hope to retire there someday.

This is the view at the end of our driveway
looking down the lane.
This was taken across the lane, down at the stream.
We are fortunate enough tobe surrounded by
 lots of wildlife. Black bear, wild turkey, deer, bobcat,
quail, eagles, great north owls, an abundance of all sorts of birds, my favorite being all the hummingbirds.
This was taken during the summer in the State Forest,
This was taken on that same bridge, about three years ago
with my youngest son Alex.
I hope you enjoyed our little trip to my favorite place...
now you know why I mention it so often!


  1. Oh wow, what a gorgeous cabin and yup, it's no wonder you love going there:-) I would so love to live in a place like that, complete with such wonderful surroundings, wild animals, etc. I hope your dream of one day living there will come true:-) xoxo

  2. Wow! Now that is some cabin retreat...I'm afraid that I'd be retreating often. Just beautiful!

    Just wanted to thank you for all the nice comments you've made in my corner. Much appreciated.

  3. Just beautiful! What a treasure it must be to have a weekend retreat in a beautiful forest. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.


  4. that is beautiful! I visited PA a few years ago.. I think in January 2002.. lots of snow!
    it was a gorgeous part of the world.
    [thanks again for your wise comment on my blog.. I really do appreciate your support - and yes, I am trying so very hard to let go & let God :) xo}

  5. Wow, I'm jealous. What a fantastic cabin!! :) I see a vacation in my future! haha

  6. Wait!!! I thought you had to die [first] before going to heaven. Hee-hee! You lucky girl, you!

  7. Hi Diva. OMG what a beautiful cabin. I can't blame you for wanting to be there. The picture of you and Alex remind me of my son Ty and I. He's tall and always towered over me. Hee-hee. I love your surroundings, what a blessing to have and a completely relaxing place to be.

    Have a blessed Sunday Dear friend. Hugs...Tracy :)

  8. Ohhh so gorgeous except the black bear part!

  9. No wonder it is your favorite place - it looks enchanting!

  10. What a wonderful, gorgeous place! Oh my.

  11. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! It's every bit as gorgeous as I knew it would be! I love the countryside and this spot epitomizes paradise in the country!

    Diva, is that you with your son? How beautiful you are!!!! How young you look!!!! You have some EXCELLENT genes young lady. Now I have a sense of who my friend is.

    I'm so glad you're uploading photos now! It's nice to see what makes you, you - collections, cabin, kids, snow.....

  12. What a great get-away place! And a fantastic place to retire. I can see why you love it so.

  13. What a gorgeous cabin, Diva! No wonder you love it there so much!

  14. Oh, I'm trying so hard not to be jealous!!! I know it would be wrong. I'm so thrilled that you have such a wonderful place to spend time with your family and relax a bit. The thought of living there when you retire is such a great one. Another blog friend has a wonderful cabin in the mountains of Oregon and I told her once that I wished we could build a cabin - she reminded me of our travel trailer and the fact that we can take if anywhere. Now I call it my 'cabin-on-wheels'. Wouldn't it be fun someday in the future if we could take off in our little cabin-on-wheels and head your direction to see your cabin?
