Here John Muir wrote as a guest of E. H. Harriman
This restored cabin is one of few remaining structures, along
with a couple of dock pilings, from the days when steamboats
pulled up to the docks. This may have been the cabin Muir
stayed in. The following is from a piece John Muir wrote
about his stay in Rocky Point…

“So I went to the famous Lodge, intending to stay a few days or
a week, but when I spoke of leaving, Mr. Harriman said I must
stay and work, and directed his private secretary to follow me
and put down everything I said. So I was fairly compelled to
make a beginning in dictating to a stenographer, which proved
rather awkward at first, but in a couple of months a sort of
foundation for more than one volume was laid.

The Lodge was beautifully located at the head of Pelican Bay
beside its famous crystal springs, the magnificent Klamath Lake
in front of it, bordered with meadows and bounded in the distance
by dark forested mountains and hills –a fine place for recreation
and rest–air, water, and scenery reviving.The weather was mostly
cool and bright, just right for soothing exercise, walks in the
woods, and boating on the lake, which most of the time was mirror-
like, reflecting the sky and the fringing meadows and
forest-clad mountain shores.

On our return from boat excursions a beautiful picture
was outspread before us about an hour before sundown, especially
toward autumn, when the colors were ripening–the shining lake
enlivened with leaping trout and flocks of waterfowl; the stream
from the great springs like a river with broad brown and yellow
meadows on either hand; and the dark forested mountains, changing
to blue in the background, rising higher and higher, with Mt. Pitt,
highest of all, pointing serenely heavenward through the midst
of the sunset purple and gold.”
