Read an Excerpt

You’ll find this book invaluable. With it, you’ll never find yourself wondering what should we do? There is a wealth of information inside regarding outdoor activities, seasonal sports, hikes, entertainment, cooking, restaurants, shopping,
and more.

The Yellow Pages or the internet put you at the mercy of strangers. All referrals in Cabin Companion, whether restaurant, retailer, taxi service, plumber, or handyman, were garnered by someone who knows—your host.

When you’ve had enough exploration and are ready to just kick back and relax at home, reach for this book again. All the secrets and quirks of our residence are revealed within its pages. If there’s a tripped breaker, you won’t have to search for the service panel. Like your water a little hotter? It will tell you how to adjust the water heater. Run out of kindling? Cabin Companion shows you where to find more.

We know you’ll care for our home as you would your own. And, if you please, inscribe some thoughts about your stay in the back of the book. We’d like to read about all the fun we missed!
