“That customer’s going to come back here pretty mad,” he said to his boss. “Should I give him his money back?”

Thinking of buying a cabin in the woods? Here are some questions you may want to ask.

Common Questions to Consider When Buying Your Cabin in the Woods

Vacation properties come in many forms. From basic cabins to fully equipped country homes – there are a few specific questions to be considered with each purchase.

Recreational Property

  1. If your property isn’t on the water, find out if you have deeded access to it or if public access exists. Sometimes waterside property owners will post “Keep Out” signs though lawful access exists.
  2. Consider your future plans. Could your small cabin one day become your retirement castle? Find out if year-round residency is permitted and if building restrictions exist. Additionally, what (if any) renovation restrictions exist on the property?
  3. If not on the local municipal sewage system, ensure the septic system is adequate and up to date. Do local municipal building codes allow you to expand the capacity of your existing septic system and is there an opportunity to eventually connect to a planned municipal system?
  4. Water-access only properties, while less expensive to purchase, are logistically more difficult to maintain. Stocking the cabin, repairs, shuttling guests, and trips to town can be more difficult and costly to co-ordinate. However with the increased isolation comes increased quiet and a greater sense of disconnect from modern-day life – a feature that makes them attractive to many buyers.
  5. Check out the source of your drinking water (well, lake, and or municipal). If your water is sourced from a well, ask if it’s ever dried out. Regardless of water source, a water purity test should be conducted as part of your vacation property inspection.
  6. Is the road to your cabin maintained year round? Having the option of drive-in access is preferable, especially in winter months.
  7. If you have a waterfront cabin, what are the municipal restrictions for building both docks (square footage and length) and new boathouses (height and square footage)?
  8. Find out if your garbage will be picked up or do you have to deliver it to a dumpsite. While an adventure the first time, the novelty can slowly wear off and may impact the value of your property for those interested in curbside pick-up.
  9. When buying a vacation property, consider cost (gasoline), time and traffic as part of your recreational experience.
  10. Remember to consider resale should you ever need to sell it.  Do you think that your cabin offers enough perks for someone else to want to purchase it.


Today is the day so many football fans have waited for.  Especially if you are from Wisconsin or Pittsburg!  What a game it will be!

Some will take part with an ALL day event and watch all the pre-game, getting comfy on the couch and creating a food outline of their body as the day goes.  Others will join in as the events get closer to kick off.  For those that are music buffs (and may have already been there), what an exciting event the Superbowl committee put together.  Starting things off was Kid Rock at the Pepsi Fan Club on Feb.3, then Christina Aguilera will sing the National anthem, then L-O-O-K O-U-T!!! Here come the BLACK EYED PEAS for the half time show.  I personally thing this is gonna be a day of music to remember!  TONIGHT’S GONNA BE A GOOD GOOD NIGHT!!

Let’s not forget to mention the food that will be consumed on this day.  Today is the busiest pizza delivery day, so if you are a pizza business or delivery person, THANKS for your hard work while the rest of the world parties down.  Remember to tip your drivers well, this is how they make their living.  Velveeta Cheese must make a killing on this day.  Who doesn’t make the ever favorite dip of Velveeta con caso nacho cheese dip? Meatball, little wieners in BBQ sauce, we have it all on this day.

For those of you that do a more dramatic dinner, hats off to you.  Growing up, our family always did a full-blown Thanksgiving dinner for the half time show.  Yep, we had it all.  From the turkey to pie! So don’t think you just have to  have pizza and beer for this day.  Also remember, it is not out of line to ask people to bring a dish to pass.  This is such a great idea and what a way to try different appetizers that you may not otherwise have gotten to try.  For those of us in the frozen tundras, maybe it is gonna be chili! Shake up your recipe and add some different seasonings or vegetables to your chili.  This site has a  great Chipotle Turkey Bacon chili recipe that have received lots of great comments on.

And who can’t wait for the commercials? I know many of the people I have talked to said they will only be watching for the crazy commercials.  Everyone knows that this will be the talk at the water cooler tomorrow at work so pay attention.  Rumor has it this year is gonna be outstanding for laughs.  I hope so, I was somewhat disappointed at last years, felt it lacked something memorable.  So bring on the laughs and let’s make tons of memory’s.

So as you make your way to kick off, choose your team as carefully as you choose the chair your plan to sit in.  Enjoy and hats off to all the players! They are all winners and what an accomplishment it is to make it to where they are today.
