A little bit about the Cabin:
This used to be a DX gas station many years ago. It was moved 2 doors to the east instead of being torn down. It was used for many years to house an HO scale model railroad. All the windows were boarded up. We acquired the property in 2012 because we fell in love with the "cabin". We converted it back to an inhabitable structure. A dormer was added and windows were installed. There are before and after pictures in the guest book located in the cabin.

We are a retired couple in our sixties. We live next door and we purchased the cabin property a few years ago because we loved the cabin. We enjoy riding motorcycles and we like to travel, either on the bikes or otherwise. We both grew up in larger cities and have really become accustomed to small town living.
