The Jackson Farm

ABR is pleased to announce a brand new ski rental available November 1, 2021. The house is located 1/2 mile from the ABR trail head. This is a unique ABR rental and like no other ski rental.

To carry on the Erwin Township legacy of JK Jackson and this historic 1911 site, we have named this house JK Jackson Historic Farm House. John K Jackson and his wife Hannah owned Jackson Logging and Bridge Construction Company. This farm is directly across the street from my family’s Korkiamaki Farm and Erwin Central School ( and future historic museum). My great Uncle Leonard and Aunt Alma worked for JK.

The house is fully furnished and sleeps 5 ( Bedroom 1 down – queen, bedroom 2 up – full, bedroom 3 – single). One bathroom. The house is self service – you bring your towels, bedding and pillows. There is a spacious sitting room and living room, a game room for kids and a beautiful home office with original wood flooring. A new SMART TV for streaming or music, DVD player with movie /library and free WiFi. The kitchen has been updated with gorgeous hickory cabinets  and fully stocked with new kitchenware.

We are seeking to rent this warm and quaint farmhouse with 40 acres for the entire ski season. If we are unsuccessful, we will post the farmhouse on AirBB starting November 1, 2021.

Serious interested skiers should contact my brother Scott at Please do not call ABR.

Rustic Cabins

Hemlock Cabin
Hemlock Cabin

For those looking for a rustic experience we have 5 rustic cabins on the trail. They are accessible only by skiing or snowshoeing but not by walking in or driving in. There is no electricity or plumbing. There is a clean outhouse for each cabin with TP. The heat for the cabin is supplied by a very efficient wood stove which also has a flat cooking surface. The wood stove keeps the cabin very warm but it takes several hours to heat the cabin if it is cold out. The cabins have a sleeping area with mattresses but not bedding, and there is  a table with chairs/benches. A  tea kettle and fry pan are provided along with a charcoal grill, but no charcoal. Firewood is stocked in the adjacent woodshed. We send you out with jugs of drinking water and a “firestarter” pack.  Cabins are located in .3 km -1 km in from the trailhead. If you need a sled to pull behind you as you ski out on the skating lanes we have some to provide. If you are arriving after 5 PM let us know so we can leave supplies out for you. There is a designated area for parking for cabin people which allows us to plow the parking lot. A sauna with hot shower and towel/soap is available for rent at the trail head from noon to 6 PM by reservation $6/person. Only one of the cabins allows  pets.
