Notes
Survey number HABS MN-146-P
Significance: ... this building was completed shortly after the construction of the Main Cabin and the initial three sleeping cabins. It apparently is one of the seven "cottages" mentioned in the "Grand Rapids Herald Review" of 7 August 1918, which noted that "the D.G. Joyce resort on Trout Lake is now nearing completion." When David Gage Joyce's daughter Beatrice Clotilde ("B.C." was a girl, the cabin was frequently used by her Chicago friend Mary Louise -- hence the name, "Mary Louise Cabin." After about 1950, when B.C. acquired a seaplane for trips between her home in Chicago and the estate, the building was customarily assigned to her pilot. ... This single-story, front-gable cabin, rectangular in plan, is constructed of saddle-notched peeled logs. A tuck-under porch -- formerly screened -- spans the entire front (east) side. Cobblestones set in concrete ornament the front steps and a cream-colored, brick chimney rises above the gable peak in the rear (west).
