to our Cabin!
- 125 Bear's Paw
- Larry and Annette along with her
parents Bill and Nancy spent Labor Day
weekend (2000) in Branson, Missouri. As
family and friends are aware, we've
vacationed in southern Missouri for over
thirty years. While out for a drive, Bill
and Nancy suggested that we explore a new
development in Hollister just south of
Branson. The community is called
Wilderness Club RV Resort. It's designed
for people who want a place with
full-hookups for their RV as well as space
for a cabin on the same lot.
- After looking at the first model, we
decided to drive down the hill to see the
"spec" home that was just being completed.
All four of us immediately fell in love
with the cabin. After discussing the
amount of money the four of us spend each
year on motels and RV campgrounds in
Branson, we decided the cabin was a good
- The picture on the right shows the
house the day we bought it. They still had
to add the tree in the front yard and the
porch in the back. We also spent a day
installing blinds in all the windows.
- When we started living in our RV
full-time, we sold or gave away most of
our "stuff" including our furniture. It
was fun to start thinking about furnishing
our little cabin.
- In less than a month from the first
time we saw the house, we moved the
motorhome from northern Branson to its new
home in the 55 foot driveway. We also took
a trip to Emporia, Kansas and loaded a
U-Haul with the things we had in storage.
On the way down, we filled the rest of the
truck with new beds, bookcases, and a
kitchen table from the Oak Express in
- Although there are houses on each side
of us, the back porch faces a hill filled
with woods. In the fall, the leaves turn
beautiful shades of red, yellow, and
orange. From our oak glider swing on the
back porch, we see lots of different types
of birds in our feeder and the nearby
- The pictures below show the three
sleeping areas including two bedrooms and
the loft. There's also a small office off
the master bedroom downstairs, a full
downstairs bathroom, and half-bath
- The great room includes the living
room, dining area, and kitchen. In the
picture on the right, Larry is hard at
work on his dissertation. Although the
area is small, we managed to have twelve
people for Thanksgiving.
- We hope you've enjoyed the tour of our
new cabin. We're still full-timers, but
it's good to know that we've got some
roots if we need or want them.
