The Cabin Called Me

May 04, 2015
" I came upon a cabin,

I heard it's voice call to me,

come a little closer, and I will tell you what is to be.

The wind rustles through the trees,

the darkness falls too soon, 

but you will know, and so will I,

that kindness should always be pursued."

 I would like to share our serendipitous discovery while hiking in

the beautiful state of Colorado last Summer.

A delightful cabin in the woods.

Still well equipped with a trusty and durable metal roof to shield against weather and varmints.


A cabin loaded with personality and colorful interest, intricate details,

could we even say maybe a Gingerbread House architectural design?

She and I sort of clicked, I was mesmerized by her.

She knew it too, because she looked good in every angle and lighting.

Some people might just see old and tattered, I see intriguing -a log cabin with so many stories to tell.

She appeared kind, personable and adorable too.

Offering a lantern to weary travelers.

And another one for overnight guests.

My friend Doreen over at House Honeys lives in a wonderful cabin and even has

bears that wander by-pay her a visit she'd love to see you!

I would like a cabin in the woods, would you?

  1. Jemma,
    I just saw Doreen's post this morning before I came over here. Yes, I have always dreamed of a cabin in the woods. My mother-in-law has a mountain home, and every time I visit, I come home refreshed from the clean mountain air and wilderness. I love this poem at the top, it's so nice. And the pictures of the rusty lanterns and the metal cabin roof all makes this cabin home so charming. No, my friend, I don't see this cabin as old and tattered, I see it as a treasure.

    What a wonderful post this is, Jemma.

    love, ~Sheri

  2. I love the cabin and would have been as captivated as you were! I love the colour of the roof and the downspouts.

  3. Jemma, what a wonderful cabin in the woods! Yes, I love one in the woods too! Your photographs are just great!

  4. I'd love to call that cabin home!

  5. What a beautiful cabin in the woods! It looks like someone just up and abandoned it. What a shame. What are you doing in CO right now?

  6. So you are in CO now? Wow you sure do get around. What a beautiful cabin out there in the words. I don't think I would love to live there, but it would be a nice place to visit! lol

  7. That's the cutest cabin I've ever the turquoise was that copper that has oxidized? Beautiful what ever it is.


  8. I'd love to spend some serious time in a cabin in the woods. Love the color of the lantern.

  9. I love cabins. We used to stay in a darling one in Powell River BC Canada. Composting toilet, outside shower and a woodstove to heat the water! Our Dutch friends owned it, you had to hike down a hill to get to it and it was on the water....a dream. Our friends had to sell it but we enjoyed it for many years.

  10. Oh I love her too! I love cabins PERIOD! Wish I had that cute little play house to play in! Beautiful cabin and you captured her quite well. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  11. Thank you so much for the mention Jemma, you're a doll!

    I love that poem, but not nearly as much as your photos. They have such depth and truly show the unique character of this cabin. It makes me a little sad that it's abandoned. Maybe it's waiting for someone like you to give it a bit of TLC?

    (Like you don't have enough on your plate right now!)

  12. A sweet cabin like that is my dream home! Hopefully my next home. I have my cabin/cottage all decorated in my mind already! Did you get to go inside or peek through the windows?

  13. You won me over with the last line of the poem. Of course I love that cabin! Sweet and kind. :)

  14. Oh, I'd love that cabin! A little treasure! blessings ~ tanna

  15. What a nice find! I like how the cabin has the soft turquoise accents and the old lantern.
    My husband and a few friends used to hike to a cabin in Canada that one of the guy's grandfather built in the 50's. He has fond memories of it and all the wildlife. Loved that poem.

  16. I dream about having a cabin someday for a second home. Something like the one on Golden Pond. That cabin is darling :)
