4-day Cabin Plan

Jon and I have found a great rental "cabin" about 1.5 hours outside of DC (not giving our secret away!). We go there about once or twice a year to unplug and relax. We invariably have a great time.

Each time we go, we plan a menu and bring everything we need to execute it. To help with future planning, here are menu options and shopping lists.

Summer Option

Lunch D1 (optional): Stop at Ashby Inn, Goodstone Inn, or Trummer's On Main.
