We still have a red cabin that could be Martin's. It was built in 1925, doesn't have utilities, but is still charming. The name is Jazz Mamma (with two Ms). There was a twin cabin across the yard call...
It has taken a very long time to get this cabin built because of the road closure, but they are finally working on the inside. The shape and size is the same the same as the old cabin, it just looks b...
