My family spent three days in a lovely cabin by the pond. The cabin was warm and inviting. It had an open concept floor plan with a fully stocked kitchen. There was a cozy wood stove, a loft, two bedrooms and one bathroom.
This lovely retreat did exactly what it was intended to do. It provided a retreat from the hustle and bustle of life. A distraction from the current 'covid everything' world we function in.
