People try to cram that fleeting fall feeling into their lives however they can. Maybe it’s weekends in Asheville. Maybe it’s flipping through the L.L. Bean catalog and buying a lot of plaid.
For some people, it’s living in a log cabin home all the time.
Here are some log cabin homes currently on the market in the Charlotte region. Be prepared, however – these big properties aren’t exactly tiny abodes tucked away in hollers.
