cabin in the woods
The family I used to nanny for invited me to stay a night in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. It was originally a weekend getaway for just the parents, but they missed their girls and called us to join them on their last night. The cozy cabin they rented was tucked away in the woods with a beautiful view overlooking a pond. It was right around the corner from the charming historic town that boasts natural mineral springs.
The tiny one bedroom cabin was crowded with three adults and two kids, but we spent plenty of time outside fishing in the pond, shopping around the town, getting tarot card readings, and drinking wine and playing board games on the porch. It was a chilly, rainy, spring evening. I'm not sure how I ended up sleeping through the night outside on the porch and didn't catch a cold.
