Hi, we're Larry & Sandra!

The Popes live on the farm in an old Victorian House built about 1904. Larry spent his summers helping his gandparents. It has always been his dream to restore the old log house built for the 1834 marriage of his great great grand father located 8/10s of a mile from the Victorian House on a private timber road. He envisioned it as a family or small church retreat, a writer or artist, or for someone who wanted to enjoy nature. Historic events also took place here. Sandra has written a book on the Cowger history as well as the Popes. They are both actively retired.

Here is our property:

Relaxing

“ Excellent ”

The "cabin" is very relaxing; there are two fireplaces and a wood burning stove. The two fireplaces kept it very warm; we didn't need to mess with the wood burner. I would consider this a "home" as opposed to a "cabin." Very nice view of the mountains; very close to the river. There are some trails for walking nearby; we took our dog for a nice walk on Sunday morning. It is very hard to find; GPS will take you to wrong location (apparently this happens all the time?) I would suggest having truck or higher clearance vehicle; very rough road to get to; I would not take my car there. The owners are very sweet couple; the lady provided us with some homemade bread!! I am looking forward to another trip!!!
