Mountain Greenery

We are all very excited here at Ash Tree Cottage!
We have a signed offer and in two weeks we will be closing on
our lot up in New Meadows.

Our lot is up in this lovely mountain area about 2 hours from
our cottage in the city.  We have been coming up here for over ten years now and
our close friends have been so generous to let us stay in their lovely cabin often.

We are looking at plans and dreaming of what we want to build.
There are some lovely homes up there like this one.  I am partial to
post and beam.  

Bentley ~ are you looking
at the house, or are you searching for chipmunks?

We'll also be deciding on a name for our retreat.
Should we call it Ash Tree Cottage North or 
Lagniappe North? The latter will be David's choice.  

David is looking forward to playing lots of golf on this course.  This is the
14th green.  

We won't start building until next spring because up in the mountains the 
snow starts flying early and lasts for months.  This pic was taken just around
the corner from our lot.

I think we will need a snow blower!

Bentley ~ where did you disappear to?  Are you hiding behind that snow drift?

Susan and Bentley


  1. Congratulations! I vote for Cottage North and I think Bentley is most certainly looking for the Chipmunks...just to make friends, of course!

  2. how exciting for you, congrats to loads of fun in the future~

  3. Susan,David and Bentley,
    So happy for you!!! Rob and Laura singing along, too wonderful!!!

  4. Congrats Susan! So exciting and so picturesque! Xoxoxo

  5. Congratulations!! Looks like lovely country. Maybe you should name it "Bently's Base camp" LOL!

  6. If I were to have a "retreat", I would go for a seaside cottage (because I like warm), but I can certainly see the appeal of this beautiful part of the country!

  7. Very exciting Susan, have fun with all of the planning:@)

  8. oh congrats! that looks fantastic. how wonderful to be starting a new building venture, lucky you. stay close dear Bentley...


  9. Congratulations on your proposed mountain home. I vote for Ash Tree Cottage North or Ash Tree Cottage II

    That photo of Bentley in the side mirror is great. Better put a GPS tracking device on his collar so you don't lose him up there.

  10. Oh what exciting news! This will be so exciting!

    Hope you will bring one of your creative posts or projects to Potpourri Friday! It's a fun party and you would be an asset!

  11. How wonderful! We are in the mountains of NH all the time and the snow will fly and last for months. How much fun you will have planning your cozy hide away.

  12. Susan dear, what a wonderful thing to be looking forward to. Bentley is going to have such a great time..
    One day I will have a tiny "Bentley" type puppy. Mele was supposed to be one but ended up Pomeraniam. S'ok..but still want one just like Bentley.
    What a gorgeous place to build!! I am so happy for you!

  13. Well, how completely exciting! Bentley in new digs!

  14. Congratulations on your soon to be purchase and soon to be built cabin in the mountains.

  15. Susan, is so beautiful up there...I loved all the green, I sure am missing it down here where I live...

  16. I think you are going to near a plow. lol Congratulations, it looks wonderful!!

  17. What a great project you will have to plan over the winter!

  18. LOL David must be from New Orleans (or Louisiana, at least). Mr. Art @ Home uses the word lagniappe all the time :D

    Bentley looks happy to be in the mountains. I know your getaway will be lovely! I can't wait to see posts about its progress ;P
