When was the last time you went camping or staying in cabins?

We thought we were going to stay in decent cabins for the holidays, the photos on line made it seem like they were going to be pretty much like staying at a hotel...When we actually read the comments about the cabins..well, suffice it to say glad we brought all the things we did because it was about as "rustic" as rustic can be!

  • I've never been camping but my Parents had a summer home. It was an A-Frame cabin in the woods by a lake. It was beautiful & had all the amenities of a regular home. We would wake up in the morning & watch the deers play outside the windows. We had our own pond that my Dad stocked with fish & a bridge to cross it. I wish we still had it.

  • I don't think my last time staying in a cabin counts because it looked like this:

    It was for a family reunion.

  • We camped on our friends' ranch last March. It was COLD at night! It was fun though. Might do some actual camping on our road trip this summer.

  • Slept in a tent with DH last summer when there were too many people at my mom's house for the weekend when we were visiting. Brother was supposed to stay in tent with his daughter, but she chickened out and I couldn't stand the bickering and complaining so DH and I just took the tent. Worst night sleep ever. It was the weekend of the 4th of July at the lake and the bars were VERY active that night. Sound carries over water pretty well.
