Cabin Description and History

Our Grandfather, Arthur Wilbur Stormes, was an avid fisher of rivers and lakes all over the west. In 1944, he and my Grandmother, Gami, bought this lakefront lot from the Jameson's after spending several years visiting Camp Richardson.
His vision was a lake cabin which would be used year round by his three daughters and their families. Dorothy, Patricia and Polly Stormes all spent there teenage years at the property. Arthur died in 1961 before he could build the main house, but Gami carried out his vision and built the house as they had planned. It was built as two units under one roof with a retractable divider separating the Big Side from the Small side. Two kitchens, and two fireplaces provided refuge for one family to escape another. Eventually, the wall was made permanent and we rent the both sides.
The Small Side has two bedrooms, one has a queen bed and the other three single beds sleeping a total of 5. There is one bathroom with only a shower, a kitchen, fireplace and living area.
The Big Side has 4 bedrooms, three with queen beds and the other with three bunk beds providing 6 singles sleeping a total of 12. There are two bathrooms, dining room, kitchen, living area, fireplace, washer and dryer.
The living areas face the deck and lake. The deck is large and is shared when both sides are rented. When the water is low, we have a nice big beach which can be reached from a ramp off the deck. At high water, you have to use the public beach at Camp Richardson if you desire sand!
