RH and I recently took a few days to spend time in the North Georgia mountains. It was very, very relaxing. We rented a great place that I’ll call a “cabin-house” becausewhile it had the stylings of what I would call a cabinit was really big and nice, like a super-comfy, traditional house.
It was full of the usual mountain home décor: bears, bears and more bears.
We visited a winery we’d never been to before, and that was fun. We did a wine tasting and admired the scenery and vineyard animals (two dogs and several chickens, from what we could see).
We made some quick and easy vegetarian chili, and what cabin-house trip would be complete without s’mores? We made s’mores a few times, both inside with gas logs and outside at the wood-burning fire pit. While I preferred the crackle and hiss of the fire pit, you can’t argue the convenience of flipping a switch and roasting a few marshmallows in the comfort of home.
It was a really nice weekend, full of little surprises like the black lab that joined us for a belly rub one evening and the unexpected bout of motion sickness I got while traveling the winding roads of the area. The scenery right outside our cabin-house was gorgeous, and I hope we can go back in the fall when the leaves are changing colors!
