Try it out some time. It was originally built as a one room cabin around 1800 up in the park. It was disassembled in the early 1930s, moved down the mountain by horse wagon, and all reassembled in but a few days. That's according to Herb Clabo, a guy who is over 100 years old there I'm Gburg who witnessed it all! Amazing !
It is constructed of chestnut, which went extinct about 100 years ago. One wall is splayed out at about a 10 percent angle.
You can hear the roaring fork throughout the cabin, and in the living room it is quite loud because you're basically right on top of it. Nothing quite like trading fish stories over a hot, cracking fire with snow blowing in and that water roaring down the mountain!
