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.

We definitely had the time of our lives. We got unplugged for the entire weekend, no internet, no tv, no cellular coverage. We stayed in an authentic centuries old log cabin and instantly felt at home with it. The kids & kid at heart enjoyed the truck ride on a rough road going down the river. Deers roam freely and we were warned about possible encounter with bears. The river was clean, the water clear and pristine. The sound of nature and running water was pure bliss and music to the ears. You can hear the squeals of excitement from the kids as they go through river tubing on the small rapids. We had the river all to ourselves. The guys caught some fish and cooked it straight fresh from the water. Us, ladies spent endless time soaking in the river and felt like we were in a natural spa. Definitely recommend this place if you’re the type who wants to get away from the hustle & bustle of the city and want to commune with nature. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Pope for sharing your property with us, & for being such a gracious and accommodating host!
