I travel the world and am truly amazed with the sights, cultures, and people but in my eyes there is no place like home.

Niobrara, Nebraska Cabin Search.

Turns out 126 Spruce was definitely more nightmare than dream come true, disappointing. It’s not a horrible house, just way more fixing up than we planned and still not really large enough for our family.

Lucky for us, there were about six other homes for sale in Niobrara. My parents and I have narrowed our cabin choices down to two. I need input. I love one, my dad loves the other, my mom is in the middle. Either will make a great cabin and provide years of memories.

Option A:

109 Pine, asking price $80,000 (reduced to $74,000).
Built in 1920, 1000 square feet. Four bedrooms, one and half bath, living room, dinning room, kitchen, mudroom and small sunroom (should be screen porch).

Option B:

24 Spruce, asking price $105,000
Built in 1975, 1800 square feet. Three bedrooms, one and half bath (plumbing for another full bath in basement), two living room areas, two dinning rooms, kitchen, laundry room, and large unfinished basement.

I have a vision in my head of what a cabin should look like. I also have a few other reasons for preferring one over the other. My dad is the realist and the wiser one and looks at the overall quality and resale among other things. I won’t say more as don’t want to give away our preferences. Just want input. I must admit I didn’t sleep well last night as laid awake dreaming of how I would decorate either cabin.

Omg how exciting! I now want a cabin as well!

Both options are great, but I automatically got excited when I saw option A. So that's what I would pick.

Now I'm wondering who I sided with...

they both have tons of possibility, but I would move into the first one in a heart beat. It has me dreaming.

Those are all such CUTE houses! I love cabins, the only thing I would NOT do is hang a big dead animal on the wall! But sometimes it can be done tastefully, just depends what it is!

Thanks Becky - not to worry I will not hang any dead animals on the wall!! Maybe antlers but no dead stuffed animals. I agree it can be done tastefully but not the look I am going for.
