A large, yet cozy, cabin located in the northern woods of Maine or New Hampshire, close to a lake, at least 30 minutes from the nearest town.
It would have a large fireplace with a large hearth made of river stones, windows and french doors on the back that overlooked the mountain and woods, possibly the lake, too, a deck off the french doors with chairs to relax in and a year-round hot-tub.
The whole upstairs would be the master suite with its own large bathroom with a window that overlooked the mountain and woods, but was treated so that no one from the outside could look in.
There would be a loft above the kitchen and a small bedroom downstairs for guests. I want open log beams on the ceilings and throughout and I'd like to hang herbs to dry.
We would have a snowmobile, snowshoes, a boat, cross-country skis, and a tracker should we need to get to town in an emergency in the deep snow.
It would be heavenly!
