We had to sell our cabin about 18 months ago.

We loved it, but it was at least 2 hours for the kids to drive to, and with weekend sports and all the grandchildren involved in theater rehearsals, plus the added cost of repairs, insurance etc, my daughters couldn't have taken it on right now, and it was getting to be a bit more of a hassle for us to get there frequently. So we sold it....but with a lot of sadness. And I still miss just going down to the lake and casting a line ( off the shore) and waiting for a trout.

I hope you keep your cabin as long as you can. ( I was 76 before we discussed selling it) Enjoy it!
