Mu Cabin was built during the winter of 1981 by Lincoln Rhodes, Abbott of the Providence Zen Center at that time. For the full story please see the fall 2015 Temenos newsletter: Forest Notes. In 2005, the front deck was enclosed and now offers a screened porch, and in June 2015 Mu Cabin was treated to a new metal roof, insulated ceiling with an added second skylight and new bamboo mat ceiling treatment. Located close to the Unloading Area, Mu sleeps one to four people on two single beds and one double bed, making it popular with families.
Open year-round, as are all the cabins, Mu is heated with a wood-burning stove, and features a two burner propane cooktop on the enclosed front porch. The outhouse, shared with Pine Cabin, is close by. Because Mu and Pine are near, but not within sight of each other, renting the two together is a nice arrangement for small groups and family get-togethers.
