My Own Eagle’s Nest

For most of my life I have dreamed of having my own little cabin in the woods.  It was a vague dream with no defined locale, but San Juan Island has changed that.  I would love to have a little cabin on one of the cliffs overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

Park Homes has the perfect cabin. The Harper model is a gorgeous two person hideaway, plus it has a double loft so Amoeba can have his musical instruments on one side and there’s sleeping room for a guest or two on the other. I love this model not just for the space, but because it is full of light and windows — a must if I am going to perch it on a prime whale watching cliff overlooking Orca territory.

Now all I have to do is find the lot to put it on. Thanks to the Federal Manufactured Housing Program, I don’t have to worry about the quality of my manufactured home. Park Homes meet and exceed industry standards, plus, they can be customized.


  1. Quilly, I just noticed you posted on every blog that I linked to. Thanks for taking the time to do that 🙂 I know they love comments!!!

      1. Haha, yes it is why I posted them, but not everyone takes the time to do that.

        Most of those visit me back, but my sister rarely checks her blog (I just couldn’t NOT include her :p) and a couple of them are quite busy and take a long time to get around to it, they only come by my blog once in awhile but I love reading their posts so I include them anyway 🙂

  2. Quilly, I think you’re probably right. Light and windows are a must for prime whale watching o’er the cliffs of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

  3. Right on the straight sounds gorgeous, but put mine at water level please, not high up on the cliff. I need to be able to feel the sand beneath my feet and the water between my toes!

    My photography is available for purchase – visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

  4. We have looked at some beautiful Manufactured Homes. Probably that is what we should have put on this ten acres but we’re too old to make all the changes now.

  5. Oh … a cottage on a bluff sounds heavenly!

    Just a quick perusal of your blog assures me that we have a lot in common and I will enjoy getting to know you! Happy to subscribe to your blog! 🙂

    1. Beth —
      BLUFF, –adjective

      2. presenting a bold and nearly perpendicular front, as a coastline: a bluff, precipitous headland.
      3. Nautical . (of the bow of a vessel) having a full, blunt form.

      4. a cliff, headland, or hill with a broad, steep face.
      5. North Dakota, Wisconsin, and the Canadian Prairie Provinces . a clump or grove of trees on a prairie or other generally treeless area.

  6. I hope you get your Cabin on the Cliff, it will be a place to come visit I so miss looking at the Ocean.

    1. Bill — since this is a small island, we can quickly visit the ocean no matter where we live. I think our Pacific is very different from your Atlantic.

  7. I would love to live in the woods; a log cabin would be perfect. That’s what I came to WV looking for, and hope that when we can spiff up and sell this city house of ours, a woodland cabin is the next step.

    Hope hope hope…

    When I clicked on WV at the Park Homes site, it says Grand Opening coming soon. How soon is soon, do you think? LOL
