After the birth of our first child, my wife and I decided that we needed a place for the family to get away now and then. Fortunately, we came across property near a local lake that we could afford. After buying the land and building the cabin, we moved on to furnishing it with all the things that we would need to be comfortable. Now that the kids are grown, we still go up there on weekends a lot. The cozy outdoor wooden furniture provides us with the ideal place to read during the day and enjoy some star gazing at night. We have all the creature comforts we want, and still get to enjoy nature. If you are thinking of getting your own lakeside cabin, let me share some tips for outfitting the place. The right things will ensure the cabin is the perfect home away from home.
