The 10 Scariest Haunted Cabins!

Author : Log Cabin Kits
4 East Kentucky

Cabins can be quite creepy, can’t they? We have all seen the horror movies where a group of friends head out to a cabin in the middle of nowhere where they are then attacked by someone or something and they all die. They have a bad reputation, that’s for sure.  We’ve compiled a list of the ten scariest haunted cabins around… Read on – if you dare – from 10 to 1…

10. Rogersville Cabin

10 Rogersville
The haunted Rogersville cabin looks quite unassuming, right? However with unexplained objects and female apparitions appearing with mist shooting from their mouths and then disappearing just as suddenly, with some of this caught on camera, it certainly has a reputation for being creepy.



9. Corbin Cabin

9 Corbin

Situated in the Shenandoah National Park’s campgrounds, Corbin Cabin was built in the early 20th century by George T Corbin whose wife Nee died in childbirth in 1924. The cabin is one of the last to stand since the creation of the National Park and hikers who have stayed at the cabin have claimed to see the ghost of Nee Corbin in the woods surrounding the cabin and even hearing her footsteps across the cabin floorboards….



8. Clear Creek Metro Park Cabin

8 Clear Creek Metro Park

On the southern fringes of Fairfield County in Ohio, the ghosts here at the Mathias Cabin at Clear Creek Metro Park sure do like to make their presence known. The ghosts here keep the lights on to let you know that they are home and faces are seen peering out of the windows, no matter what time of day it is.



7. New Hampshire Cabin

7 New Hampshire

In 1994 two camp counsellors for an Orthodox Christian Camp were assigned a cabin with six children. On separate occasions, both counsellors experienced the feeling of someone standing over them whilst asleep in bed, only to find no one there when they checked. One evening a counsellor sat in the cabin, whilst the children slept, eagerly awaiting his colleague to relieve him so he could attend a party nearby. He heard footsteps outside the cabin and someone began opening the door. He saw the outline of a fairly tall man who came in and sat down on the other counsellor’s bed. Assuming it was the other counsellor, he asked if it was alright to leave but got no response and assumed that he was tired or in a bad mood. When he got to the party the other counsellor was still there.

The counsellors, terrified from their paranormal experience, contacted the camp director and it was arranged for a private exorcism to take place for the safety of the children. No negative experiences were had by the group again…



6. Fort Worth Zoo

6 Fort Worth

Log Cabin Villages, across from the Fort Worth Zoo, offer a glimpse at the past. Stories state that a man hired a nanny for his son and later married her, all living in the big house at Log Cabin Village. The nanny was known for wearing lilac perfume. It has been said that when visitors tour the house, footsteps can be heard from the attic above the second floor and sometimes the scent of lilacs fills the air…



5. Goliad Cabin

5 Goliad

One of the stories states that a lady drove with her family to her friends hunting cabin in Goliad, Texas. They planned to shoot targets, have a barbecue and sleep over. Their plans were cut short by apparent paranormal goings on. They reported a sound of a train approaching close to the cabin during the middle of the night. It shook the walls and floors as it past. However, no railroad passes anywhere near the cabin! A rocking chair in the main room appeared to rock very slowly on its own and an oppressive energy could be felt when sat in it. The lady also reported being woken by the sound of a crying boy and a disembodied voice could be heard saying ‘Go to him!’.



4. East Kentucky

4 East Kentucky

The haunted log cabin in East Kentucky is well known for the orbs that appear.  Orbs have appeared floating above the roof before changing position in a matter of milliseconds; they’ve appeared in photographs of the antiques sign before changing position again within five seconds of the last photo. No one can explain them and why they change place so quickly…



3. Glouster Haunted Cabin

3 Glouster

An old small three room home standing at over a hundred years of age, this cabin is set up in the hills of Glouster, Ohio backed up against the forest. The house has now sat empty for over thirty years. Reported occurrences are strange noises, footsteps walking through the kitchen and out of the back door, even seeing family members walking on the property or waving goodbye from a window – not strange at all, you may think…until you consider that neither family member was there at that particular time and neither of them were dead but still living and somewhere else entirely!

The family called in some ghost hunters and they instantly noticed strange goings on. One hunter saw a man smoking a cigarette who stunk of whiskey. He looked dirty, like he had just come in from working down the mines. When describing the man’s appearance to a fellow ghost hunter, they had seen exactly the same thing. After consulting with the family, they learned that they had met the long dead great grandfather of the man who had called them in…



2. Garnet Cabins – Town

2 Garnet Town

We’ve mentioned haunted cabins throughout this list but what about a ghost TOWN? The former mining town of Garnet in Montana was deserted after a fire in 1912. Only now is it starting to see people visit again but local folklore claims the area is haunted by former residents, reporting that they have heard music and laughter, even in winter, and doors slamming when there aren’t even any doors in the cottages. Locals say the spirits come out around midnight and you can often hear men’s voices echo in the empty rooms – however, as soon as a living human hand touches the building, the noises stop.



1. Cabin 28 – The Keddie Murders

1 Cabin 28

Murders are terrifying anyway but when the murder scene becomes haunted too?

On the night of April 11th 1981 in the little town of Keddir Plumas, Northern Carolina, Sue Sharp, her son John and his friend Dana and her eldest daughter Tina were bludgeoned to death with a claw hammer. Thankfully Shelia’s other two son’s Ricky and Greg and their friend Justin were left un-harmed. The youngest daughter, Shelia, had stayed with a friend that night and returned the following morning to the gruesome discovery. The perpetrators still haven’t been found and it is unlikely they ever will be.

The Cabin 28 was demolished in 2006 after numerous unsuccessful attempts to sell. Occupents claimed to see murky forms and rocking chairs, someone once claimed to have found a pitchfork and the word ‘no’ carved into the kitchen door. Returning half an hour later, the words and pitchfork were gone. Other reports state of hearing moans, slamming doors and footsteps at times when the cabin is unoccupied. It certainly sounds like a terrifying place to visit…

Thoughts on the Liverpool 4×3 Log Cabin from a customer

Author : Log Cabin Kits
David's Liverpool 4x3 Cabin

David bought the Liverpool 4×3 Log Cabin from us in November 2014 and has enjoyed nearly a year of use from it so far. I’m sure you’ll agree it looks great in the pictures! We got in touch with David to get some thoughts from him on his time with the cabin. The fact that he has been able to use the cabin in a variety of ways shows that you don’t have to lock yourself down to one use when you make a purchase from LogCabinKits.co.uk!

What did you originally envisage using the cabin for before you purchased it?

I purchased the log cabin shortly after taking early retirement.I had long wanted a cabin to use as a work room and a place for the family to relax in the summer months.However I was also keen to work on a building project in my garden.

Have you ended up using the cabin exactly as intended?

The garden has been used in many ways and was easily heated during the winter months.By carefully furnishing the cabin it has created a versatile extra room.

Has the cabin met your expectations over time?

We have all been delighted with the cabin and it has exceeded all expectations.It has been greatly admired by both friends and family.

Have you modified your cabin in any way?

The cabin has been left as the original design with decking being added at the front with gravel paths built around the sides.

How was the process of buying from Garden Adventure (logcabinkits.co.uk)?

The whole process of buying and building the cabin was excellent. The cabin was delivered on time and was extremely well packaged. The construction went to plan and the pieces fitted perfectly. I would recommend Garden Adventure to any prospective buyers.

Alpina 4x4

What did you originally envisage using the cabin for before you purchased it?

The Alpina 4×3 was intended to be used as a Man Cave and hot tub canopy.

Have you ended up using the cabin exactly as intended?


Has the cabin met your expectations over time?

I’m still very pleased with it.

Have you modified your cabin in any way?

The cabin was supplied bespoke as a 4×4 and I added the extra canopy to house the hot tub.

How was the process of buying from Garden Adventure (logcabinkits.co.uk)?

Seamless from begining to end….Martin always replied promptly to any queries


As you can see, John was happy with his purchase! Pick your perfect log cabin for your dream use right here.

Another Cambourne Cabin Sold

Author : Log Cabin Kits
Cambourne 5x3 Log Cabin

Without doubt, our best selling cabin this spring has been the awesome value Cambourne 5×3.

Cambourne 5x3 Log Cabin

Cambourne 5×3 Log Cabin

And it’s not surprising, it has a great spec. at an exceptionally favourable price point :

  • 5×3 Cabin
  • 44mm Wall Logs
  • Double Glazing
  • 2.45m Ridge Height
  • Shed Felt
  • Price – £2190.00 (plus delivery *)

* Note – Delivery for most is FREE, but for more remote locations, delivery charges start at £44.00, still great value !

Although the cabin comes with shed felt as standard, we would recommend giving consideration to purchasing our optional felt shingles. Not only are they much easier on the eye, with various colours and styles to choose from, they will provide extended protection for your cabin, way beyond the lifespan of shed felt.

We recently installed a Cambourne for a customer, as per the above picture. To the right of the cabin you can see there is a good storage space between the cabin and the fence  – to make best use of this, we extended the roof line and now the storage area is protected from the elements – cool !

The Cambourne has many uses, we know of it being used as a summer house, garden office and even a kids den, but the list is not endless – what will you use your cabin for ?

44mm Log Wall Cabins

Author : Log Cabin Kits
44mm Wall Logs

So why are our 44mm log cabins our most popular ?

  • Best value
  • Great levels of insulation
  • Sturdy

Just some of the reasons why our 44mm log wall cabins are our customers preferred choice.

44mm Wall Logs

44mm Wall Logs

Without doubt, the most popular wall thickness is the 44mm. Best value, you get more for your money. More wood, more strength, more insulation. It’s a win win situation. Cabins wider than 4.0m start to become a little unstable in the wall when using 28mm logs, 34 is better but 44 (or thicker !) is best.

If thinking of using your cabin beyond the warmer months of the summer, then you will need levels of insulation that will hold any additional heating provided. Not only does the 44mm wall logs provide excellent insulation, all our cabins manufactured in these wall logs are supplied with double glazing as standard (except the garage and carports) Note – my basic physics knowledge suggests that heat rises, therefore you should give serious consideration to insulating the roof by some means. A minimum of 50mm celotex or similar is recommended.

And because we sell mostly cabins with 44mm logs, our carried stock of these cabins is greater than others so delivery can be quicker than waiting for a less popular cabin to be manufactured.

Swimming Pool Cabin

Author : Log Cabin Kits
Grande 5x3 Log Cabin

Our customised Grande 5×4 log cabin (reduced in size to 5×3) is now in situ for our customer on Hayling Island.

As our previous post suggested, the 5×4 version, although perfect in looks, required some tweaking to ensure it worked for the purpose it would be supplied for. The changes we made were as follows :

  • Size. We reduced the 5×4 to a smaller 5×3, this pretty much replicated the original building size, any larger and it would encroach too near the pool.
  • Internal Partition. An internal partition was added to screen the pool plant away from the main usage area.
Grande 5x3 Log Cabin

Grande 5×3 Log Cabin

The result was for a building that fitted the specification laid down by the customer for a swimming pool cabin capable of being used as a changing facility, storage and housing the pool plant. At the same time, the ascetics were also a contributing factor. The design of the Grande provided those looks with its fully glazed double doors and tall, double glazed windows.

Our design team can assist with advise on what can and what cannot be achieved – if you are in n eed of a swimming pool cabin but cannot find anything to suit, please call the office to see where we can help.

If you cannot find the size of building you require or as in this case, require some internal partitioning, please call the office to discuss your requirements. Bespoke cabins are more expensive than the “off the shelf” versions, but you might be surprised how much we can produce prefect cabins for.

Custom Grande Cabin for Swimming Pool

Author : Log Cabin Kits
Custom Grande 5x3

Custom Grande Cabin for Swimming Pool

This is a classic case of, “we love the Grande cabin, but it doesn’t quite suit our needs”

The situation was simple – an aging cabin that was installed at the same time as the swimming pool some 30 years ago – time has not been kind and it was due for a change and replaced with a newer version. The building was used pool side to provide a changing facility but also to house the plant that ran the pool and kept it clean from debris and the water in good shape.

The style of the Grande was ideal, the size options were also ideal and the 5×3 would sit straight onto the existing concrete base, but this is where we needed to customise. The original pool plant was located in a submerged pit. The owner wanted this to be re-homed on ground level, but did not want it to be on view. We agreed that a simple floor to ceiling screen would do the trick hiding the rather unsightly pump and filter whilst maintaining a nice feel to the remainder of the cabin.

Another Bespoke Cabin Ordered

Author : Log Cabin Kits
Douglas 3.0x2.5 34mm Log Cabin

Bespoke Log Cabin

Not all custom build cabins are complicated large affairs. Our most recent confirmed order was for a customer who liked the look of the Douglas, but required an alteration to the size and a style change for the doors.

Douglas 3.0x2.5 34mm Log Cabin

Douglas 3.0×2.5 34mm Log Cabin

The standard size Douglas is 3.0×2.5m. Our customer required a cabin with log lengths of 3700x3700mm. In addition, the Douglas has half glazed double doors as standard, customer required solid (no glazing, double doors) : Not a problem – we pass this through the drawing office and amend prices according.

The resultant cabin fell within customers budget and he ends up with a building exactly to his specification. A “win – win” scenario.

Here are the plans that have been drawn up for the customer to approve the design of his new cabin :

Bespoke Cabin for Montessori Nursery

Author : Log Cabin Kits
Bespoke Cabin Service

This week we supplied and installed a bespoke cabin for Lavendale Montessori Nursery in North London.

Bespoke Cabin Service

Bespoke Cabin Service

The Nursery required a two room building for storage and additional work space – none of our “off the shelf” options worked for them so between us we designed a cabin to their exact requirements.

On this occasion we also provided a comprehensive installation service which included :

  • Full structure installation
  • Insulation to under floor and roof
  • External wood treatment
  • External flame retardant

Building installation ensures a professional and exact finish utilising our years of experience working with buildings constructed from interlocking wall logs.

Insulation was a necessity so that the building could be used 12 months of the year. The walls are 44mm thick and the glass is double glazed as standard across our 44mm range, but any additional heat would quickly dissipate if insulation was not increased, particularly to the roof (heat rises, accordingly to my O Level physics teacher) We applied 50mm celotex boards to the roof and under floor – with the additional heating the cabin will quickly get cosy and maintain the temperature for the comfort of all users.

External treatment in the form of Rystix Exterior Armadek was applied (three coats) which will provide excellent protective qualities to the timbers for a long and trouble free life. Additional applications will be required in time to maintain the protection levels.

Due to the cabins location, it was also agreed that a flame retardant was applied to prevent any “accidents”.

Snow didn't deter the installation
