We had a little getaway for Jerry's birthday. Nothing fancy, and when I say that I mean it! He was celebrating a milestone birthday, you know the decade ones... the ones that can get you in a really bad mood unless something special it planned. We stayed at The Wilderness Cabins
at Branson, Missouri just a couple hours away.
We love to stay someplace with charm and having a kitchenette is a plus. We like to do our own breakfast, wear our pjs and take our time getting around. I pack everything but the kitchen sink so we don't have to be afraid of not having the things we need!
It looks small, and it was. They had beds for 4, I imagine two adults and two kids but I don't think I could have stood it long if I'd had little ones underfoot. I'd have made a poor Pioneer Woman, not THAT Pioneer Woman... she has a house for living and another for entertaining, I mean the old days kind that made do on the Prairie with a one room cabin. It was great for a weekend, but more than that and I'd be going a little berserk!
It did have all the comforts that you need, comfortable rocking chairs on the front porch and a gas grill on the back porch.
We didn't have to do without any of the necessities of life! It even had wi-fi, sort of. I could get connected, and I could read my email and Facebook. I just couldn't post the one picture I wanted to post so badly for our GRANDson Ewan.
Everywhere you looked, was peace and quiet. Forests with big Oak trees surrounded the cabin and even though it was a rainy weekend, we enjoyed every minute.
There were other cabins all around us, but honestly you felt as if you were the only ones in the woods.
But just a few miles from us, there was a whole different world going on...
