The Stone House

I made it!  I arrived here with Delight!

The Stone House is tucked away in Portland's Forest Park.
When my children were young I remember hiking past it,
but it had been a very long time since visiting there.
A few days ago I mentioned it to my "live-in gardener", who likes
walking in the park.
We drove to the other side of the city, parked along the road,
and took a bit of a hike to once again find The Stone House.
Isn't it beautiful with all that moss and ferns growing on it?
I am not sure what it originally was used for, but I just loved the ruggedness of it.
If you had this place, could you live here?
You would be surrounded by amazing trees, a creek just down below,
and lots of visitors stopping by just to gaze at this Stone House.

That's an incredible gem! I can see why you wanted to make a point to get there and inside! Great shot of you, too!

I would love to live in a stone house tucked away in the woods, but with a welcoming drive way for guests and not too far from family. I don't want much, do I?

It's looks like it's out of a fairytale!
With a little (well actually very big) reno it would be a perfect getaway.
Like the pic the live-in gardener snapped! Give him my hug and tell him Bob says "hi".

Love, Mary

What fun to return to the stone house and remember past times! It looks so solid, timeless and located in a wood makes it special.

Love the old stone house. Don't you wonder if it was ever lived in and by whom? The surroundings sounds so nice and peaceful!
