This is a quick post to hopefully inspire those who haven’t thought about a log home in a while.
Those of us who work in large cities often wish to get away from the maddening crowd and spend some time in a peaceful location (those of you who have never felt like this…should stop reading this article and get back to work!) where you can feel the arms of nature. This wish has been converted to log cabin home weekends for many city dwellers. These weekends spent at log cabins can really help rejuvenate people and give them space and peace of mind as well as energy to face few more hectic weeks in their regular lives. The Appalachian Mountains are just a quick trip from Raleigh and the Triangle area and is a great location for a log home retreat.
You can spend the weekend at log cabin homes, either on your own or take down a group with you who are also looking for a relaxed weekend. Most log cabins are in secluded hilly area and you can be sure of excellent weather except when it is snowing. A bit of preparedness when going to the log cabins goes a long way in letting you have fun. Be sure to carry all necessities and lots of food and drink when heading towards the log cabin. Since you are going to be a long way from any convenience store it is always advisable to be well prepared.
Some log cabin homes are built near small water bodies which are quite clean and preserved naturally. These small lakes (and sometimes there are big lakes as well) are good for fishing and even having a dip. Usually you can find some or the other type of activity to entertain you while you are on your relaxing weekend stay at the log cabin.
For those looking for a more permanent retreat, why not build your own log cabin. There are many log home builders in North Carolina such as http://www.loghomebuildersnc.com/ that can assist you with your dream of having a beautiful log home.
