It’s been an exciting ride, yes? Thank you so much for entering the Blog Cabin 2013 Giveaway. The grand-prize package, worth almost $500,000, includes a beautifully restored cottage located along North Carolina’s stunning Crystal Coast.

Very soon, we will randomly select the winner of the giveaway. The big announcement (the winner’s name and photo and how many times he or she entered the sweepstakes) will be posted on or around October 11, 2013. Then, just a few days later, we plan to unveil the location of our 2014 home. Stay glued to your computer — lots of details are TK in the coming weeks!

Good luck to each and every person who entered.

  6. Dreaming of sitting on the dock of the Blog Cabin and watching the sunset. Standing there listening to the water and watching the colors of the sun mixing with the water.

    • I'm right there with you, great isn't it? I can smell the sea air, and feel the gentle breeze, every now and then, turning back to look at the masterpiece of a house and yard. For some lucky person, life will be idyllic.

    • You have painted the picture that has already been living in my mind.

    • This home is so amazing. I truly hope a blogger has the chance to enjoy this one in person. Hopefully for life.

    • That is my dream, to enjoy living in that wonderful, serene home spending time on that dock with a glass of iced tea and munching on a handful of grapes.What a wonderful home and property. I would also like to spend some time in town, learning what I can about the town and the people. Best of luck to all !!!!! <3

  7. I just recently figured out what career I wanted to invest the rest of my life in. I have suffered from severe migraines since I was seven and been a single parent of three but my two girls are grown and they help me a lot. My time to open a business is now. I have two years of on the job, one year of college and I have been purchasing equipment for three years or better. I AM READY. I am pretty shy about things like this but I really want, need and have dreamed of this opportunity for many years. I have planned many options to pay for the Blog Cabin if we win it. Reading the blogs and thinking about anyone selling this house if they won it just breaks my heart. We will move into the house and immediately start our business. Oh by the way, I am a photographer. I do other things too but that is the top of my list. I don't plan on letting this fail. I am really hoping that my family wins this home but if we don't, I am wishing all the luck to everyone who entered. And whoever wins please enjoy the house all of your days and please don't sell :)
