I had a pretty nice time at my mini-vacation up in Tyler. It was too short and I didn't sleep overly well, but I got to spend a day and a half with people whom I adore. It was awesome, really. I'll write blogs about the fun, but--in this blog--I wanted to show you the cabin where I stayed. This is a front view of the cabin.
This is the view as you walk into the cabin. You see the living room and part of the kitchen.

The closet! How interesting, yeah? You can also see the closet in the photograph above
just to the left of the bed furthest from the "door". It was just such a novel way to do a closet. And I guess it saves some money. No wood for doors or walls of a wooden cabinet--just a pole and some hangers!
This view is of the other side of the loft bedroom--that tiny short area behind the 'closet'

The next three are of the bathtub area. One thing I thought was rather interesting about this cabin is that--while it can sleep up to six--there is only one bathroom! I could never bring my parents and sisters here for Christmas cos we'd go crazy with only one bathroom! I did not enjoy the mirrors on every wall, but someone mentioned to me that they thought the purpose was to make the bathroom look larger, and I guess it did. Another fascinating aspect is the shower head. It doesn't come at you at an angle like most showers, but, instead, straight down on ya. I tried to get some photos which would illustrate that fact. I wanted y'all to get a feeling of how this place looked.
The wall decoration in the bathroom. Strangely enough--on my way home yesterday--I passed a Trout River or a Trout Lake somewhere near Kirbyville, I think.
The wall art in the bedroom. They sure do keep to the rustic theme, don't they?
