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.

This "cabin" built in 1834 has a beautiful modern interior. It is set in the "middle of nowhere" with all the amenities you would need. A short walk to the river with a nicely mown bank was absolutely perfect. My family fished to their hearts content while I literally sat in the river in my chair and RELAXED. The water was crystal clear. We saw eagles, bears and deer among so much else. We heard the coyotes in the distance at night. The house was spacious and comfortable. The owners have a meticulously written history of the cabin there to enjoy. While there is so much to do in the area, take what you need when you go because you won't want to or need to leave! The owners are so accommodating and interesting too! She knows the history of the whole area! The road to the cabin is rough but easily/carefully traversed. Way worth the trip!!!
