Glamping is Glamourous Camping Let me be perfectly clear that even when my family goes full-on tent camping, we book an RV spot so that we have electricity & water on site…but Glamping…is a whole different ball game. Our “Glamping” accommodations consisted of a Huttopia: A pre-set-up tent on […]

Dreaming of a Chalet Rental Up North? Look No Further…

FacebookTwitterStumbleUpon I have a thing for Log Cabins….A SERIOUS thing. Especially the kind of log cabins with granite countertops and stainless appliances and a fireplace and a hot tub and enough bedrooms so that everyone is comfortable.

In other words, creating incredible, beautiful, toe-tapping music without all of the usual instruments and tools necessary to achieve a similar beat and harmony.
