you for building such a perfect little place like this. Perspective
is something not thought about until it's lost. Having
a place like this to retreat to was exactly what we needed to

was the perfect cabin, until we tried Strawberry Hill; so now
we believe there are two perfect cabins! They are
different in ways but both share serenity, charm, artistic touches
and much thoughtfulness that make it difficult to leave ...

reminded of our first time, going deeper into the mountains,
not sure if we would get lost on the meandering roads. But,

Beauty all around
you for making us feel so welcome here at Strawberry Hill. We
only had two days but thanks to your warm hospitality, we immediately
felt at home here.
spiritual experience I've ever had in my life with my husband!
The sky is close, the plants are breathing, birds are singing

of many things. Music and softness, comfort, beauty, simplicity
and magic greeted us. We have treasured every second -
every raindrop, wind gust, blustery blow and snowy blanket. We

it seems This place is a beautiful analogy for life. Our eyes
roam the distant horizons always interested in what beauty can
be found, but the clouds roll in and the wind blows forcing us
to turn inward - a place we rarely visit. We find there, a place
of simplicity and quiet.
And for that we are always grateful.

place at the right time, this is one of those moments.
Wind whistling through the trees
Blue jays flitting from tree to tree

Leaves playing with the sun
Deer lounging under the cabin
Mountain tops floating on the morning fog
Staccato drum of a woodpecker
Gaggle of turkey chicks

been a soft day when we arrived at the Cabin at Strawberry Hill.
It had rained in the morning as we exchanged vows and rings,
but as we arrived the rain had turned into a veil of mist so
that it seemed that the little Cabin with the bonny blue roof
seemed to be floating on a cloud. The stone path was lit with
low lanterns which kept the mist at bay as we climbed up the
stairs to the covered porch and on into the smartly furnished
one room cabin. Every thing seemed to have been carefully picked
not only for its usefulness but as if each piece was a work of
beckons and I must leave but not without regret. Next time I
go kicking and scratching. Thank you for the hospitality - I
haven't felt this welcome in a new adventure for years.
up early to watch the sunrise and it was like sitting by the
ocean - the wind passing through the trees sounded like crashing
waves and the fog covering the mountains
looked like the retreating tide. It was pretty awe-inspiring.
And then we promptly went back to sleep in your amazing bed.

of wild turkeys. 16 of them by our count and they do go "gobble,
gobble".... We spent hours thinking about how we would design
our own little cabin for two. Finally realized you have created
a setting so close to our ideas of perfection that we will just
have to claim this as our getaway.

The photos looked inviting, but...
But any apprehension we had was immediately dispelled the
moment we walked in the cabin door,
heard the music, and viewed our wonderful new hide-away.

and Chuck! Where do I begin? ... We began making plans to simplify
(we even daydreamed about somehow living in the cabin forever!)
As I sit here, watching the sun slowly moving across the hills,
listening to the wind moving through the trees,
I know this is just the first of many visits to come.
