Adorable, Affordable Retreat

Once upon a time, not terribly far from the intersection of these two roads,

there lived a saucy little cow who stood on the cutest little bell

which was attached to the railing of a great weekend getaway,

only a few lots back from some wonderful views of the Chesapeake Bay, which is just beyond these trees.

This is the view as you drive in. Your blood pressure will drop at least ten points as soon as you arrive.

Once upon a time, there was an adorable, affordable vacation retreat for sale. Those seeking to escape the worries and hurries of modern-day life should contemplate this retreat, which couldn't be farther from WalMart Vietnamese fresh spring rolls a gas station the stresses of modern day life.

1/3 of an acre
Sleeps 5-8
Would make a great vacation rental property
$119,000, furnished.

No, the fiddler crabs are not hovering in the roadways yet, though they are on the sidelines.
Yes, it's true you can hear yourself think this far off the grid.
Yes, it's true you can hear your neighbor think this far off the grid.
No, we're really not off the grid, it only feels that way most days.

Yes, it's an incredibly generous offer.
Yes, I'd buy it if I had the spare money.
No, there is hardly a square inch of grass to cut.
Yes, that's almost exactly why I'd prefer to live there.

Heck, my blood pressure dropped just looking at the picture! I so wish it were a wee bit closer to my home - it'd be a perfect getaway.

Do you think the owner would sell me the cow bell? I promise to give it a nice home:)

TSannie said...

How very nice of her to offer that up!

What a nice thing to do, to offer such outstanding accommodations!

I have only one word to offer.: VISA, VISA, BLOODY VISA!

OK, that's slightly more than one actual word, but I think you know where I'm going with this.

I love it. Be there is 8 hours.
Oh wait, our van is not well. Make that 3 months and 2 days. I will have to stop for breaks on the uphill climbs.

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

Perhaps "potato neck" should be some sort of Blogfest rallying cry, or a code word of some kind?

Jamie said...

I'd love to buy it. I could use a permenant retreat. Potato Neck rd is an awesome name, but Bob's Hole Rd is awesomer.

Jim said...

LOL Jamie. Anyone know about Old House Woods Road ....

Jamie said...

Jim Old House Woods Rd cuts through the infamous Old House Woods... it's haunted. Very creepy

Jim Waggener said...

Old House Woods is a strange place. I was asked to go down there and test the signal for internet access. At the corner of Old House Woods Road and Haven Beach Rd. the signal was very good. As soon as I entered "the woods" it completely vanished. Exiting the woods at the end of the road - signal returned. Strange place indeed.
