A midwinter getaway

Mr. T and I were able to take a brief getaway over the weekend -- from Friday evening to Saturday afternoon. We had been able to reserve a little cabin for one night and so left town around four p.m. We checked into our cabin and looked around --these are older cabins (built in the 1950s, by the looks) but very cute and well maintained.

We went out for an early dinner and enjoyed fish & chips, then came back to our cabin for the evening. The evergreen trees around the cabins were glowing with colored Christmas lights -- a lovely scene to come back to.

We had a relaxing evening by the fire

and a good night's rest.

In the morning, we went out for breakfast at a little restaurant nearby. It was so close, we could have walked, but decided against it as the temperature was 6 below 0ยบ! I had a Western omelet, and Mr. T, a lumberjack breakfast which included French toast, scrambled eggs, home fries, bacon, and sausage!

We checked out of our cabin at ten. This is what it looks like by day.

The rest of the day was spent in shopping (I found some amazing buys at a thrift store) and we also went out to lunch, then did a bit more shopping before returning home around 3:30 p.m. We were gone less than 24 hours ... but we find this type of getaway very refreshing, and were thankful for the opportunity!


  1. What an adorable cabin! Your getaway weekend sounded perfect!

  2. The pause that refreshes Mrs T....sometimes those little get a ways are more restful that a long trip.

  3. That little cabin sounds like a wonderful place for a getaway! My husband & I went to a similar place for several days for our honeymoon. We definitely have it in mind to go back sometime soon! I'm glad you were able to enjoy some time away & get a good nights rest.

  4. Hi ladies!

    Thanks so much to all of you for stopping by! Yes, it was indeed a wonderful getaway and -- as Arlene said, much more restful and refreshing than a long trip.

    Mary Ann -- sounds like a perfect place for a honeymoon. Hope you can return to "your" cabin soon. There's another place in far northern NH where we love to go when we have a few days to get away, but not in winter.

    Hope all of you will stop by again soon!
