OverviewThe Middle Mountain Cabins are nestled in a small grassy opening near a small pond and Camp Five Run, a hiking trail that leads into the Laurel Fork South Wilderness. The cabins are secluded and offer a quiet retreat for visitors. Rented as a single unit, Middle Mountain Cabins include a main cabin with a kitchen, and two historic sleeping cabins.
The cabins occupy a 3.5-acre space about 18 miles south of Wymer. The two smaller cabins were built in 1939 and served as bunk houses for Forest Service employees.
