What happened to this family when they went to visit their small cabin in the woods is unbelievable. Having spent vacations there for the past decade or so, their little cabin was the one retreat they relied on being there when they needed a break from life. On their last visit though, they didn’t find what they expected upon arrival. Instead, utter devastation. Read the story below and watch the video on page 2 for the shocking conclusion!
It’s a secluded patch of woods about an hour north of Spokane, Washington. Dubbed “Hempel’s Hideaway,” Moose and Chris Hempel, along with their two kids, have gone there for the last 10 years anytime they wanted to get away from it all. They enjoyed hunting near Loon Lake along with their picnic shelter, a deck and, for the last four years, a small cabin. But when they arrived at their property Tuesday, they noticed the front gate lock had been cut. In fact, the Hempels’ beloved cabin was gone. “It was just an empty hole where it used to sit,” Chris Hempel told the Spokesman-Review. While insurance will cover what was inside the cabin — the camping gear, a futon and bunk beds — the cabin itself isn’t covered since it didn’t use an electrical hookup, she said.. But even though their cabin is gone, it won’t deter the Hempels from venturing to their Hideaway.
