Romantic Cabin

This past weekend, hubby and I spent Friday night and Saturday night at Bear Creek Bed and Breakfast Lodge.  We were there for our good friends' daughter's wedding.  Bear Creek is right outside of Branson, just a few miles off of Hwy 65.  It was super easy to find, even though it was off the beaten path.  We drove through shabby chic metal gates down a gravel road with beautiful lanterns lining it and then past a couple of cabins, the beautiful shaded garden area for weddings, and the main lodge to the cute little check-in cabin.




Tessa checked us in and took us on a tour of the grounds and then met us at our cabin.

We stayed in the Tree-house cabin.  We parked a short distance away and walked the mulch path into the woods and down a steep little path to the cabin door.


I loved the private walk to the cabin!



The kitchen was on the left when you walked in.  Notice the healthy snacks of Fiddle Faddle and chips!



Down from the kitchen was the dining area with a cool antler chandelier.




The cabin opened up into the living room with a leather sofa-bed couch and an electric fireplace.  The door by the couch opened up onto the private covered deck with a four person hot tub.




To the right of the front door was a private bedroom with cute cabin decor.




It had a plaid hunting outfit hanging in the corner - it was neat but kind of creepy!




I loved the water canteen lantern beside the bed!



This was my favorite spot - on the back deck where I would drink my morning coffee and read.  

There were three other cabins on the property.  One was a great big one beside our cabin called the Wilderness Cabin.  It was really two cabins in one.  It would be great for extended families.  

Another cabin was called the Bootlegger's Bungalow.  It looked like a newer cabin.  It was in an open field across from the wedding garden.  If you are looking for a cabin in the woods or one with a little more privacy, this is not the one for you.  It did look like this one was a little more accessible.  

The other cabin was beside the lodge and the wedding garden - Creekside Cabin.  

It was very cute!  It had a lot of bushes surrounding it but it was right beside the wedding.  It was a great location for weddings or other events but it lacked the privacy of our cabin.  

I will share the main lodge in my next post.  I just loved this place and can't wait to share more!

Definitely a Happy Camper Life location!

Selling Our RV

For several years, Clinton and I searched and searched for the perfect RV!  Shopping for RVs can be a lot of fun.  If you go in enough of them, you get a good sense of what you're looking for.  With our son in college and not able to camp with us much, we were looking for a smaller fifth wheel that had room for him in case he could go with us but didn't take up valuable living space for sleeping arrangements we didn't need very often.

We found the perfect first time RV for us!  It is was a Forest River Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite.  It was 31 feet long, so it wasn't massive but big enough to give us lots of features we didn't have in our pop-up camper.  One of my favorite features of this RV has been the kitchen.  I've heard a lot of people say they don't cook in their RV.  I do my fair share of cooking outside but with this RV, I've had the space to prep, cook, and serve from inside.  I also love the living space with the sofa, regular dining set, a…

Our First RV!!

I can't really tell you where my love for camping came from.  My family never went camping when I was growing up, neither did my husband's family.

After our son was born, Clinton and I took up camping because it was an expensive way to "go on vacation."  We bought a tent, an air mattress, a couple of coolers and we started camping.  
I guess that's actually where this deep-seated love for camping occurred.  There's nothing better than setting up camp, then sitting around a campfire - cooking, eating, and laughing.  Then you wake up, usually early and watch the sun rise.  You hear birds, crickets, and other sounds of nature.  You smell bacon and coffee wafting across the campground.  It's so peaceful and helps to clear your mind.  
We have tent camped at various state park near us in Missouri and we have also tent camped in other states, like this one trip we took around the Great Lakes.  
Last year we finally upgraded to a pop-up camper.  It was like a t…

Advice - Memphis

October 10, 2018, my hubby and I with our two little doggies are going pack up our 33 foot 5th wheel RV and hit the road for what we're calling "The Grand Adventure"!  It will be a two year trip across the United States, camping in every state!

We've had a lot of people ask us about our plans and where we're going so we've decided to start sharing our ideas so you all can give us advise before we ever leave.

Since we won't be starting "The Grand Adventure" until October, we decided to start in a state that will be beautiful in the fall - Tennessee.

The first stop on the Tennessee tour will be Memphis.

We will be camping at T. O. Fuller State Park.  It is located right outside of Memphis.  An ancient Indian village was found during an excavation. The site has since been developed as the Chucalissa Indian Village and is operated by the University of Memphis. It includes a village, preserved archaeological excavations and a modern museum.

At eac…
