Cabin Muskie


Muskie Cabin is one of the two larger and more spacious cabins located at Featherstone Memorial Park. The cabin is conveniently situated near the North Twin Lake shore and close to the playground. It can comfortably accommodate eight individuals, with two people per bed and two people on the futon.

Muskie Cabin's amenities include a full kitchen, a full bathroom with a walk-in shower, a comfortable living area, and an upstairs loft. The kitchen is equipped with all necessary appliances, including a full-sized refrigerator, oven/stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and a kitchen table with chairs. Meanwhile, the living area features a television, futon, recliner, and air conditioning.

A bedroom with a queen-sized bed and a dresser is located on the main floor across from the bathroom. Upstairs, two queen beds are available in one loft area, while the other area features two couches, a chair, and another television. The upstairs loft is open-plan, with no separate rooms.

Muskie Cabin's covered cement patio deck offers a breathtaking view of the lake. The deck is equipped with two picnic tables and a fire ring, making it a perfect spot for a cookout. The park has a trail that encircles the lake, disc golf area, playground, and a lake shore that's perfect for fishing. Please note that pets are not allowed on the premises.
