Parquin Lodge and Managed Forest Doors Open Highlands East

Parquin Lodge and Managed Forest

Archibald Parrish and Garnett Quinn-Parrish built this unique log cabin in the mid-1930s over Gooderham Lake near a beautiful forest. They originally planned to open a cottage resort on the site, with the cabin as a dining room and central meeting place for guests. Once completed, however, it became a family cottage and is still in use as such.
