Stanfill Cabin

The Stanfill Cabin is a classic example of "rustic vernacular architecture", as are many of the homes in this community. The Stanfill Cabin was built as a vacation home in the early 1900's. Interestingly, the original part of this cabin is actually the upstairs. When the owners wanted to add on to the building in the 1950's they decided not to add a second floor, as you might expect. Instead they dug the cabin out from below, adding a strong foundation and new lower level as they went. Inside the cabin you'll find many hand-hewn timbers as well as an original stone fireplace, which is still the only source of heat in the building.
