Tourist Cabins: Wallinda Cabins

Perched on US Route 2, just west of Marshfield Village are the Wallinda Cabins. For years I’ve seen this sitting quietly on the side of the road, presumably unoccupied but having a neat and tidy appearance. Just last week on my way through Vermont, I decided that I would finally stop and photograph these before they disappeared. Unfortunately, I was just a few days or weeks too late — only three of the five remained!

The cabins still have beds in them! Perhaps they were recently occupied.

It's a picturesque spot.

Novelty siding, original doors and windows, interior furnishings: these cabins seem more intact than most. It’s a shame that the land and the cabins are for sale. If you have any information, please share. And here’s my lesson: if you want to photograph something, don’t wait four years!

Tourist cabins have not been easy to photograph, but here’s another one.

    • and, I think it’s Vermont Rte 2, not US Rte 2 which runs from Boston, Mass, to Albany NY.
      The look and detail seem c,.1938. – we have one like the ones you posted in June on the back hill, Almost rotted into the ground, used for hunting in season – no plumbing, electricity or foundation, Just perched there for weather protection, perhaps. No one so far has been able to tell me how it got there, where it came from.

Have a thought to share?
