Rangeley Resort, My Home away from Home
Well I finally got here. Rangeley Resort, my home away from home for the next 7 days. I must admit that the drive has me second guessing my decision to go to Boston on Thursday for class. But I can’t change plans now because I told my pet sitter I’d be home Friday morning to take care of Rocky. Good thing I like to drive.
Roaming, Roaming, Roaming!
I thought cell phones did away with roaming charges years ago? I guess not. T Mobile just sent me a text that I was using up my roaming limits. They are about to shut me off if I don’t upgrade. Guess I can live without cell service if I have to.
My little Cabin in the woods.
I’m impressed by my little home away from home. If I could build my own little place this would be perfect. There’s a lovely front porch with 2 Adirondack chairs. They are much more comfortable as an adult than when I was a kid. There’s also a picnic table for eating outside. The decorative touches are wonderful from moose coat hangers to a vintage rotary phone.
There’s even a Lincoln Log set. Talk about a trip down memory lane!
The First Floor
The first floor is where I live.
There’s full kitchen with a dining room table. I love the dish rack.
I wish I’d thought of that when I did over my kitchen at home. The kitchen dining room and living room are on an open floor plan. The living room has lots of comfy seating, a fireplace and a TV that actually works!
The washer & dryer are in a closet in the hall. A full bathroom and two bedrooms round out the first floor.
The upper floor
The upstairs boasts another bedroom with a TV and a bath and shower. Its so cozy. I could really fall in love with this cabin. Although the bedroom is under the eves, the room is built so the slanted ceiling isn’t a problem. It kind of reminded me of my bedroom growing up with its slanted ceilings.
Private but not isolated.
My cabin is set back into a little bit of woods. It’s private but not isolated. There are other cabins nearby.
The Main lodge has a swimming pool, sauna and hot tubs as well as a seating area and fireplace.
There is a separate fitness center located on Dallas Hill. There’s a beautiful view of Rangeley Lake from the parking lot.
If you drive (or walk) down toward the lake, there’s an “old fashioned” swimming hole. How’s that for ambiance?
