  1. How can I buy an extra copy of The Country’s Best Cabins December 2013 issue? My cabin is on P. 24 and I would like to order an extra copy. I am already a subscriber.
    Thank you.

    • Estelle: Unfortunately, we don’t directly sell copies of the magazines anymore. Your best bet would be to check at Wal-Mart or Barnes & Noble for a hard copy. Let us know if you have any difficulty finding one.
