With Valentine’s Day less than a month away, and cold weather keeping us too chilled to want to spend much time outdoors, now is the time to think about all the romance a log home or log cabin can bring. To help make your log home winter the most romantic, we have five things you need to set the perfect scene.
1) A log home in the wilderness
Nothing is more romantic than coming home to a log home in the evening. Surrounded by looming storms and winter's chill, a log home or cabin glows with warmth and comfort. Of course the great thing about a log home is that whether it's built in the wilds of Montana, or on a small lot in the suburbs of Charlotte, NC - it will always be cozy and warm - the perfect backdrop for romance.
2) Cozy furniture
After a long day of work or recreation, it's great to cozy up on some over sized pieces of furniture. After all, it wouldn't be a romantic log home experience if the furniture weren't big enough for two to cuddle on.
3) A roaring Fire
This may sound cliché, but not much can compare to a roaring fireplace. Not only does it help to cut through the chill of a room, its crackling hiss and flickering flame add an air of romance to a dark cold night. Of course, even for non-romantic occasions, it's a fabulous addition to a log home or cabin (particularly for those who also are in love with s'mores.)
4) Dinner for two
Sharing a meal together is a classic way to spend time with the one you love. There's no need to eat at a large dining table when there's only two people. Keep the occasion intimate with a setting just for two. Put the same level of effort into the meal itself, but no need to be too formal. After all, we're looking for romance, not a formal dinner party.
5) A jetted tub
Perhaps it is another trite feature, but a big tub made for two adds just the right amount of romance to a log home or cabin. Particularly if your log home or cabin is a second home where you'll be doing a lot of skiing, snow shoeing, hiking or other strenuous outdoors activities, having a place to soak tired muscles and unwind is important.
