  1. Invitation to join us in morning campground coffee on the dock! We are trying out an automatic outdoor coffeemaker and it would be great in the outdoor kitchen! Coffee is great so enjoy.

    • Our outdoor coffeemaker is the Thermos. : ) Is there any electricity to the outdoor kitchen?

      Trish on July 25, 2013 at 10:10 am
    • I had to go to the pics of the outdoor kitchen. I remembered the lights and knew there HAD to be electricity. Pic 6 has an elect. outlet above the gorgeous grill. So, coffee in the outdoor kitchen is THERE. Woohoo!

      Trish on July 25, 2013 at 10:14 am
    • No electricity necessary for my coffeemaker! Good for off grid camping in the woods. It uses a short 1 lb propane bottle that you would use with some camp stoves. Wonderful for campgrounds that have cabins with
      no indoor kitchen or tenting on sites that have no hook-ups. Or cabins with large gorgeous grounds on the shores of Core sound!

    • We could really use one of those!

      Trish on July 25, 2013 at 2:47 pm
    • They're great aren't they? We've had one for a couple of years. Just load it up, press the starter and soon you have a piping hot cup of your favorite joe. Easy camping :) ;)^_^

    • Cowboy Coffee!!! :) Morning all…

    • It isn't good coffee unless the spoon stands up. :-)

      pinevalley on July 25, 2013 at 12:31 pm
    • Cool video Laurie, I love crunchy coffee.:D

      540sam on July 25, 2013 at 12:55 pm
    • Cool Laurie, but I hate picking the grounds out of my teeth! Oh, I have done this!

  2. I love the Resin-cast whale shark figures in the sun room!

    Judeschu on July 25, 2013 at 10:12 am
    • Me too.

      Eugenia27 on July 25, 2013 at 1:37 pm
    • So do I ! When my younger son was little, he was fascinated by sharks. We got every book and research material we could find on sharks. The whale shark became my favorite; they are so massive and yet so gentle. They float along with a "toothless" mouth open to scoop up krill and other nutrients. I would love to dive in Caribbean waters and swim near one like this :

      I became pretty obsessed with them myself.They are so graceful and something about them touches me.

  3. Wow, I see myself there. I love this place.

    Louise on July 25, 2013 at 11:22 am
  4. I love the coffee table. but then again the fireplace mantle and the dinning table are coming in right behind that. Heck, it is all so beautiful that is really hard to pick one favorite piece.:D

    JudyInMich on July 25, 2013 at 12:29 pm
  5. love the fireplace. Would like to try doing that at our cottage on the St Lawrence River in the 1000 islands!

  6. I thought the dining room was very nice, but it's the family room I cannot wait to get into!(that is IF I was to actually win!) And, the sunroom is where I'd plan many, many naps!

    MarkR1128 on July 25, 2013 at 3:49 pm
  7. I love the wrap porch with the peaceful view. I can see many days & nights sitting & relaxing.

    linda finch on July 25, 2013 at 3:54 pm
  8. I love the driftwood table! There are so many really unique items in this "cabin"!

    pattyb88 on July 25, 2013 at 4:10 pm
  9. I love the lamp in the master bedroom…..

    klicket29 on July 25, 2013 at 4:13 pm
    • I will have to go back and take another look.

      Eugenia27 on July 25, 2013 at 6:09 pm
  10. I really like the outside area, the kitchen and the pergola, and the access to the water, How beautiful! Thanks for sharing.
