Small cabin found along the mattagami river near timmins. The gps location may not be exact but close. It is somewhere between where grassy river merges with mattagami river and the bridge on wafferboard road. Tucked into the woods just enough that if you blink you may miss it, It's a small log cabin with a newer addition on the back. I have no information on the cabin or the previous owners. There's a water run-off going underneath a portion of the cabin and comes out and into the river washing out the bank.

The entrance to the cabin is a steel door wedged by the mud beneath it leaving it open less than a foot. The cabin itself is made of log, a wafferboard roof covers it. what appears to be the original portion of the cabin seems to have been used at the kitchen, stacks of wood and cutlery can be found. The woodstove obviously hasn't been used in quite some time. The "newer" addition housed a matress but not much else. The roof in the addition is collapsed. Having looked around the cabin there were what may have once been discarded bed frames but not much else interesting. Aside from the small creek that seemed to flow from in the woods under the cabin; the river seemed to be the only way to or from.

Edit:

Information came up from family and friends of the previous owners stating that they believe it was a trappers cabin built in the 40s and later used by Two locals Ron Kiroac and Peanut Rochon to be used as a fishing/hunting cabin. A nearby freshwater spring was purposely diverted to run directly under the cabin and into the river.
