Friday Fun: Hiding in the Forest

For those days when you just need to go off-grid and get away from it all, here are some dream-like cabins in the woods. (Appropriately enough, following my review of Do You Hear Me yesterday, which also takes place in a forest, although under less pleasant circumstances.)

I can never say no to Japanese tea houses, even if they are not all that remote. From

  1. I love the second one although I’ll need those windows to darken at night so as not to be woken at dawn, and a huge injection of cash into my back account of course!

  2. One of the things I adore about my home is that it is off the grid… not everyone’s cup of tea but suits me more than I could imagine. A long way from L.A., San Francisco and N.Y.C. or other places I have lived. I do consider myself most fortunate.

    1. That does sound quite idyllic… When I was younger, I was such a city girl – the bigger the better. I adored London, Paris, NYC, Tokyo. But now I crave a remote nook – although perhaps within a decent commuting distance to a cultural capital.

      1. There are a few cities about 30km away and Barcelona is just over a two hour drive or one could take the train… London is less than 2 hours from the Carcassonne airport which is fine for a weekend and many other fascinating cities are not all that far away. Nice post!

  3. Oh, these are all so appealing, Marina Sofia! And a getaway sounds lovely. Hmmm…I think my choice would be that treehouse, but they’re all terrific.

  4. Oooh, the first one and the Japanese one are most appealing – but any would do, as long as they’re well heated in the the winter and well-stocked with books and food in case of getting snowed in!

  5. Hah hah, I see Karen has exactly the same choice – perhaps we could do a time share, and even offer each other a pot of tea as the tea house arriver and the tea house departer do some meeting and greeting. The same with the winter house – but, perhaps, a tot of whisky and a toasted , buttered crumpet, over the log fire which someone has helpfully chopped a lot of logs for

  6. Hmm… all gorgeous but all that greenery makes me think… insects! Urgh! So I’ll go for the snowbound one – I’m more of a snuggler than a hiker…

  7. I like the top one, too. But any isolated spot with trees around and a nice view, not too exposed, with a way to make tea, have snacks and read would be fine with me.

    1. It probably wouldn’t be half as tempting in summer. I did stay once with some friends at a hut like that in the Bernese Oberland and it was great fun (although washing in melted snow was a bit of a problem).
