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.

  2. I just love this BC. I love the beach, I love NC and have some family ties there, and would find this the perfect home for life through to retirement. While I really want this place for myself and my family, God's will be done! And God bless all!

  5. Good luck to all. Wonderful to see so many new bloggers. Those gimmie gimmie contests really helped to get people comfortable participating in the blogging fun! I hope you are going to go thru the clue process!!!! Really? You would simply announce the 2014 location? So soon? OCT 11? Well it will help us in the healing process I guess. From a future loser-bring on the first clue for the next blog cabin location. Hokiemom

    • What would you do if you won? Would you leave your drafty old home and move. What about a bidet? I had thought that if a person did need to make the cabin user friendly, a ramp could be added to the Master Bedroom porch.

    • Oh Eugenia, the thought of packing 30 years of accumulated crap is a daunting nightmare!!!!! Seriously I never ever consider the option that I might win! Never! I am in this strictly for the blogging fun and comradeship. I've taken statistics and know the odds. I've got my bidet and the house is handicapped accessible. Cold and drafty, but …….. walkable community. Only 4" to get into the front door. Mother arrives in November. I agree a ramp could easily be retro fitted into the entrance to blog cabin. They even make folding aluminum ramps which can be put up and down. Our neighbors have one. Works great, looks great too. Best of luck Eugenia! I mean it with all my heart!!! Hugs!

    • I know the odds but someone has to win. Why not me or you? Not only so I have 27 years of stuff but I also have all the stuff in the store. I think I'd pack my most (emotionally) valuable possessions, walk away and have an auction.Sent from my iPhone

  6. The comments about this Blog Cabin have been so positive; it is a true testament of everyone who has been part of building this truly special place. All of us bloggers are so excited to find out who wins. It would be a dream comes true for anyone of us!

  8. A beautiful area and we just love the whole idea of matching the old with the new! My husband and I have been fairly near that area at Emerald Isle, and we know just how blessed one winner will be. We entered daily and are anxiously waiting! Ready to move and retire!

  9. We sold our dream family home to move to Carteret County in 2006. When I saw this right down the road in Atlantic, I thought "Oh this could be my change to live in my dream home". We drove down today just to take a look and it was very beautiful and so is the community of Atlantic. Whoever wins, will be blessed!
