The Iditarod Cabin

We cut dead standing trees, peeled the logs, and built the cabin on site together when our daughters were young girls. Large picture windows look over the lake and the small deck is the place to be at sunrise. The cabin offers a queen bed and one twin in a loft area. This cabin offers a roomy private bathroom.
