The Ideal Log Cabin for an Active Outdoorsy Family

. . . With A Wooden Stairway Down to the Stream


What’s quite special about this log cabin is that it’s made out of original hand-hewn white logs circa 1850’s and a few more parts of it are still original. On the other hand, a number of areas have been renovated, such as the kitchen, to make this historic log cabin function well as a contemporary house.  It’s a two story log cabin, located in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia, that’s ideal for a family.  The property is situated in a forested rolling terrain, with a stream a few strides down.   Another way to reach the stream is by a wooden stairs – which somehow creates a surreal feel to the place – with a handrail on just one side, that winds down to the stream and the rest of the wooded surroundings.  With such a comfortable abode amid an inspiring close to nature setting, it’s also a perfect place to go hiking in the woods and go fishing down the stream, providing the residents old-fashioned, quite physical recreation, an ideal break from or an alternative to the pervading high-tech, sedentary preoccupation in today’s lifestyle.  So take a look at these photos and tell us what you think on our Facebook Page!
