ssgtkitty, I owed a house in Largo Fla. for some time and just couldn't get used to the semi-tropic and besides it's getting way too crowded for me down there. Kept my summer cottage (cabin) in Maine and retreat there from May till mid Oct. and I'm a happy camper. I'm 77 yrs. old. When my inlaws retired to Fla. my mom-in-law had an electric blanket on her bed year round. (wouldn't turn on the airconditioner) and we sweated the whole time we visited her. I do love visiting there for about 2 weeks out of the winter then I want to get back to my snow and season changes.

jlcady, you're a person after my own heart. I love my Maine cabin, but apparently it's a little bigger than yours, but I'd just as soon have it small and there's no such thing as CABIN FEVER if one has stuff to do and I love reading and the peace and quiet. Enjoy!!!!
