  1. The attention to the details…large to very small…mixing and matching antiques with modern elements are perfectly combined (love the door knocker, old sewing machine base used, too many to list). The entire property is…perfect! I love this blog cabin. The person that wins this will be extremely lucky. However, I would be jealous, because I hope it is me!!!

  3. Hello Everyone,

    I absolutely love this house. As a person who does animal rescue, this place would be a Godsend. I rescue anything that needs rescuing, and I do mean…anything! Just ask my husband and kids about the 3-baby skunks I saved and took in 4-yrs ago. LOL! I currently have to rent pastureland and it makes it difficult when the property is not your own. Here… I could finally rest easy knowing the horses are in plain view. This would give me the opportunity to take in more equines and others in need. Everything about this house I love. The kitchen is the heart of the home. I have to tell you, I am very happy that the barn was left in tact. Nothing says farm living like an old barn in its original condition. You all out did yourselves this time. Thank you for saving this old place. Good luck to me and all that have entered. ;)

    Hugs & Love,
    Linda :)

  4. When I win this house, my plan is to move back to my home state of Maine from Colorado and host wounded warriors and their families for getaways. I volunteer here at the USO and cannot think of a more amazing way to say thank you to our troops than to offer a much needed respite for a week in such a beautiful, soothing place, complete with tour guide who knows and loves the area! As the mother of a disabled combat vet of OIF, I know what this can do in the healing process for the most deserving group of Americans I know!

  5. I love the cabin. Can you tell us more about the property? I love the outdoors. Is there water? Beach?

  6. Absolutlely perfect for us, our children, grandchildren, family and friends. Life is much too short not to share beautiful experiences and love.

  8. Beautiful remodel even if on the rustic side in places it is quite luxurious. I'm still wondering about the decision to only leave basement access from hobbit door outside and would have preferred to have a fully accessible house. It will be nice for whoever wins it, the lower level seems accessible at least with a walker. So there is hope. Great job everyone involved so far! Victoria, your eye is great and your picks in barn have come in very handy in each episode. I love the ladder with shadow boxes upstairs although it's not that popular. I can add art to every wall open space and be very happy here. Once I get the barn in shape to be a workshop that is and basement acccess from inside–begone message center!

  9. I was wondering ( after trying to guess ) where is the basement entrance? I love the mystery of basements. I am a creative person and always into mischief. I love to recreate and create. Please tell me how to get into the basement. Also, can you keep horses there?

    • I mean: Can you keep horses on the property? I would love to raise horses if I won.

  10. FiremanEd if I don't win, I hope it is you!! Hubby and I are getting close to that age (58) and would love this home to live in and pass down to our children as a vacation home when we pass on. As for the complaints because there is no main level bathroom for guest then all I say is let them climb the stairs or use the master! Taxes well that is a finacial issue for some for us we would sell the house in NH as we plan on moving to Maine for the next installment of life. I love all the design elliments of this home why complain when it's free! Designers great job especially working some of the old eliments into the home that belong there!!!
