Location

The cabin is in the central part of the island on Hasselborg Lake at an elevation of 300ft (91 m).

Access

Access is by float plane or canoe with portage. It is about a 45-minute flight from Juneau. By canoe and portage, it is about 10 miles (16 km) from Mole Harbor. 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 sits back 20' (6 m) from the lake on a beach with exposure to the sun.

Big Shaheen cabin is close by, connected by a 100 yard (91 m) trail. Four trails are accessible by boat. The lake is 7 miles (11 km) long and part of the Cross Admiralty Canoe route.
