These Islands are located midway between the communities of Juneau and Gustavus. The cabin is situated about 18 miles West of Juneau and 25 miles East of Gustavus. This area is readily accessible by boat or float plane and is popular for wildlife viewing, photography, kayaking, hunting, and sport fishing.

Wildlife is abundant amongst the islands and many species can possibly be seen including; seals, sea lions, humpback whales, orcas, porpoises, brown bears, moose, intertidal sea life and an array of birds.

The average high temperatures in the summer are in the 60's with high humidity and an average annual rainfall of 60 - 90 inches making for a wet environment. Having warm clothing, quality rain gear, and proper safety equipment is a must, as inclement weather can set in quickly and last for days.

Heat at the cabin is a woodstove and it is recommended to bring your own wood and firestarter for your stay, as there is a limited amount of dead and downed wood available to gather for use at the site. There is also no fresh water source at this location, so it is important to bring your own water supply.

The cabin is located on the northernmost of the islands between Point Couverdon and Howard Bay. It is situated at the center of the "H" shaped island approximately 1 mile to the south of Howard Bay. This island doesn't have an official name on any map or nautical chart but is known locally as "Clover Island". There are multiple anchorages and beach accesses, but anchoring is always contingent on weather conditions.
