She said she prefers to keep her and her family more private, and opening her home would seem to negate that; plus, she wasn’t planning to decorate too much because her family would be spending Christmas in the Bahamas.

The Coopers’ Getaway Cabin

Gary and Sharon Cooper weren’t necessarily looking for a new home or a lake house, but their family were regulars to the area, as they would take their boys to JP Coleman State Park just about every year when they were growing up. When they saw the incomplete and vacant cabin up for sale, they bought it, thinking they would complete it, and be done with it.
