Found this old house a year or so ago.
Hard to spot and very easy to miss. Spotted it in the fall because the foliage was dead making it just visible.

It's hard to access as well. There is no direct route to it. You have to turn off Hwy 17 at 90 km/h + into the abandoned rail line and park the car, then get out on foot and head South East on the abandoned rail line to the bush line then cut into the bush back towards the highway to access it.

The bush is very dense around the shack. I could not get more than 8 ft of stand off to get better pics because of this.
It's a single story building with old faux brick clapboard on it. The old electric fridge was outside the shack on it's back. I tried to open it but it was jammed shut.

There was a couple pairs of old footwear outside the front door/porch. The old electric stove was still in there though. A brand I have not seen yet in any other locations around this area. There was an old turntable/radio on the floor as well. It must be an older building as it has the old thread in breaker fuse panel. Looks like a couple families of birds have made their home in the panel box over the years.

It's still in decent shape despite some heavy trees falling on it. All in all a cool little hard to get at location.
