We often dream of ditching our city life for a vacation in a cabin in the woods. You know the kind of tucked away place that forces you to slow down and place your daily worries on the back shelf while experiencing true peacefulness and a whole lot of quiet. Well, that dream finally came true when we stayed a couple of nights last October at the Logden Lodge in the historic mining town of Ymir, British Columbia! It took us about eight hours to get there from Seattle, a route that required us to drive across the whole state of Washington to Spokane and then head up to Canada. When we arrived, we were gracefully welcomed by an incredible 42 acre forest setting surrounded by stunning mountains that are a part of the Kootenay Region known for its artsy small towns and abundant outdoor activities from hiking to skiing. Our cabin, one of four that are situated apart from each other creating maximum privacy, had everything we wanted when it came to rustic elegance. We’re talking a picture-perfect stick and timber frame structure with an open layout that has cozy bedrooms with fantastic sheets, a charming kitchen with everything you need to fend for yourself, a luxurious bathroom with a deep soaker tub, unique furnishings and decor including world artifacts from the owners’ private collection, and our favorite…a wonderful wood burning stove. We absolutely loved that wood burning stove…so much that we spent most of our trip in front of it just taking in its warmth while realizing that this is what relaxing really feels like. Needless to say, we came out of this trip feeling revitalized and excited to visit again…perhaps in the winter when the snowy environment will make this place even more serene!
What do you think of this cabin? Have you ever stayed in a cabin in the woods? Leave a comment…we would love to hear what you think!
