Location

The cabin is in the south-central part of the island on the north end of Jim's Lake at an elevation of 232ft (71 m).

Access

Access is by float plane. It is about a 50-minute flight from Juneau. Occasionally poor weather can result in extended stays, and cabin users should be prepared for this. In fall, winter, and early spring, the cabin may be inaccessible due to frozen lake surface (float planes cannot land). The lake is normally ice free from mid-May through November.

Terrain

The cabin rests on a small rise adjacent to the beach with a nice overlook of the lake.
