About this Establishment

The log cabin warming hut is utilized year round. A guestbook and dedication is in the warming hut. The log cabin is rumored to have been built by two sons of a forest ranger. At one time the fire lookout and warming hut was used by an organization to save animals. The organization was called Project Wildlife. DJ's Snowmobile Adventures, Inc. had the log cabin renovated and dedicated as a public warming hut in 1988.  DJ's Snowmobile Adventures, Inc. provides both guided and self-guided tours to this location.

Used by an organization to save animals? It’s pretty small inside, but does have one wagon wheel operating table. Great place.

Spent New Years Eve 2012 here from 9 PM til 3 AM, 4 degrees outside, nice and warm inside. My grandson Sean, my son Joe and six others. What a great place to welcome in the new year. May do it again this year 2014/2015 if enough snow on Bald Mountain road.
