Bear Spring Cabin is a nice off-trail alternative to trail shelters and campsites on the AT that sometimes get considerable foot traffic along this stretch of trail. The primitive cabin has a collection of cast iron cookware, bunks (no bedding), a table and benches, and a wood stove. The window shutters are a little tricky to open.
It has a private privy (mouldering latrine; uses the same key as the cabin) and a spacious covered eating area that includes a grill and picnic table, along with counter space and basin for dishes.
Note that as a primitive cabin, you'll need to bring your own light. The spring, while reliable, is about a quarter mile from the cabin; fill up in one trip. Also, the cabin is about three quarters of a mile downslope from the AT. It can be tricky to get to in wet weather, and it's quite the "good morning" to get back on the trail the next day.
Refer to PATC Map 5/6.
This is a great place for a retreat away from all that causes you stress.
