Your Guide to an Affordable Dream Retreat

If you think there's no way you could ever afford your dream log cabin, given the current economic climate, you're not alone. With investments tanking and savings dwindling, many people have given up on their long-held plans for a vacation or retirement home in the wake of global economic meltdown. There is some good news, however; with smart planning and the right advice, it's still possible to make your dream come true. You may have to downsize or let go of some of your more elaborate plans, but a cabin is all about simplicity, and if you plan with that in mind, you'll find you can likely still make it happen.

The April issue of Country's Best Cabins, which hit newsstands this week, is all about affordable dream retreats and finding ways to work creatively within your budget. Inside, you'll find:
