Elf Shelf and Gnomes Home Cabins

Elf Shelf and Gnomes Home are the two sides of a non-winterized duplex building. Each side has two bedrooms, a loft, a full bath, a kitchenette and a living room. These woodstove-heated units are right at water's edge, sharing a screened-in porch and entryway. The standard maximum occupancy is six per side. Roll-away beds and/or cribs can be added to accommodate larger numbers of people, though it does make sleeping quarters tighter.
