Notes
Survey number HABS MN-146-M
Significance: It presumably took a significant number of servants to maintain the "casual" lifestyle at the Joyce Estate. Given its name, the Maid's Cabin apparently housed one of more of the female staff. ... it was built shortly after the Main Cabin and the first three sleeping cabins were completed. It is probably one of the seven "cottage" 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." The building is mentioned by name in Joyce's probate inventory, compiled in 1938. ... A hipped-roof porch extends across the front (east) of this single-story, gable-front, log-frame building. A wood-frame, shed-roofed section to the rear (west), probably a later addition, covers the back (west) wall and projects to the south, beyond the south wall of the front section. The Maid's Cabin is identical in plan to the Butler's Cabin immediately to the south. Unlike the Butler's Cabin, however, the Maid's Cabin has log framing, instead of wood framing, for its main block.
