I barely recall it, but the ending haunts me: There is a guy sitting in a small cabin in the woods. There is a body on a rough table in the middle of the cabin. It is night. The man falls asleep, and when he awakens, it's morning, I think the cabin door is now open, and if my memory serves me, the body (a woman?) had been defiled in some way. The man screams, the scream echoes through the woods, the movie ends I think. I cannot recall what movie this was...any ideas? [more inside]

I'm looking for a secluded beachfront cabin to rent for 2-3 nights in the southeastern US (ideally the Carolinas, but Virginia, Georgia, and even Northern Florida would be a possibility). Essentials are: 1) on a sandy beach with swimmable water, and 2) as secluded from other people as possible. Budget would be less than $300/night. [more inside]
I need a 1-3 night, relaxing getaway near Tucson, AZ. Anyone stayed in any quaint cabins or good value guest ranches/hotels/B&Bs no more than 5-6 hours from Tucson (or even somewhere within Tucson/surrounders)? I've considered everything from finding a discounted night at a fancy resort and spa to primitive camping on Forest Service land. Extra credit (but not required): pool/swimming hole/hot tub.
I have a chunk of work to do this summer that doesn't require me to stay where I live (in NYC). I'd like to sublet my apartment and find a place to stay for about a month and a half or more that's close to nature but has electricity and Internet access. Unfortunately, I don't own a car, which complicates things, and I'm floundering with options. I'd love any recommendations, experience, or advice about thinking through how to do this. [more inside]

I am looking for a relaxing weekend by myself within a 4 hour radius of my home (Scranton, PA). I have been searching airbnb for cabins in specific towns that I know of, but I don't think I'm getting all of the areas I should. Do you know of a cute town or specific cabin rental in the northeast PA, lower NY state, upper WV, or NJ area that I should look at for a luxurious weekend getaway by myself. My main requirements are wifi and a big tub. I can bring my own groceries so I don't care if it's remote.
I've been thinking of buying noise dampening products to make my car interior quieter. It seems that the common approaches are to get spray-on dampener for the wheel wells and peel/stick sheets for areas like the trunk. Some people go nuts and tear the entire car apart to line the entire cabin with sheets. I don't have time or money to go nuts, but I would be willing to be a little crazy to target the top 3 or 4 sources of cabin noise, if I could figure out what they are. [more inside]
I saw this film on television in the 70s when I was young; it was broadcast sometime before 1979. Some people are stranded after a snow storm. At one point they discover a car in the snow, and when they look inside the car they see the people in it were frozen to death. I think someone cried out, "Oh, no, it's the professor!" (or something like that). At another point in the film they come across a cabin in the woods and try to open a can of something they find, but they have no can opener. The film was in color, so please don't suggest something in black & white. It may have been made for TV or it may have been an actual film; I remember there being a lot of commercials for it because we had just had the great "Blizzard of 1978" in Boston. Any help finding this film would be great! One person suggested to me it might be "The Untamed" directed by Archainbaud, but it is not that. PLEASE HELP!

The last weekend of June I'm headed to Pocono PA for a family reunion with my bf. We're from Seattle and want to stay an additional 4-5 nights to explore the area. We're looking for a rustic cabin or lodge surrounded by wilderness to explore. We've been looking around the Delaware Gap but everything seems targeted at families with kids or golfers (we're in our 20s). It'd be great to do some hiking on the Appalachian Trail. The hut to hut hikes in NH look pretty amazing but they're a bit of a trek from PA. If you're familiar with the Northwest we're looking for the Doe Bay or Kalaloch of the area. Thanks for your help.
