Building has ‘washroom’, two bedrooms, living/dining area and two outbuildings plus boathouse for equipment storage. One boat (16′ Lund type) and motor (questionable reliability) on site. Accommodations are rustic and the cabin will require work and maintenance. Cabin is good for spring/summer work. Heating is via a Coleman oil heater and there is also a small wood stove.
