Tiny and old

If you are a huge Jack London Fannie guess a visit is appropriate. I saw the cabin while walking on The Oakland Estuary. Poked my head in. Yep ,it's a cabin.

Not worth your time. Not much here. But we do love Jack London Square, not for this cabin. But for the restaurants and shops and the waterfront.

A small log cabin that you can walk around, indulge your imagination of Jack London sitting and writing, and then stroll the rest of the Square's walkways to find the bar or one of the many restaurants to enjoy a good meal and a glass of wine or spirits.

This place is a nice place to scroll and soak up some sun shine in Oakland. There is also a small pub in the area.

After enjoying the cabin, drive up to Glenn Ellen for a stay at the 'Jack London Lodge'. The chocolate shop is a must along with the terriffic 'Indian' resturant within walking distance.

It was pleasantly shocked to see this, as i was walking past it and it was just sitting right there, it has been there forever of course, and it's just a fantastic little find...... Read the author and you will know why it's so greatly significant...... People in the bay area love that Jack lived and work here, and of... More

I believe this is a historical building. Truly a little log cabin with a little bar, meant to serve those in need of little elbow room. Located adjacent to Jack London Square's eateries, it's a novel place to wet your whistle.

Alright place to visit. I was generally disappointed by the whole of Jack London Square. Mostly just restaurants. All attractions close at 5 pm.

No cost. A small quiet spot right downtown by the water. You can touch it. Walk around the building. You may not enter, but you can see and just wonder how people lived. Great teachable moment for children.

If you happen to walk by, take a look in. It's neat that this piece of history and culture exists and is on display. Kids will enjoy peeking in. There's not much to it and it doesn't warrant a special visit.
