This waterfront tiny cabin for sale is on a waterfront lot in Belfair, Washington with 1.77 acres included.

It’s definitely not in move-in ready condition so it needs some work which could be fun.

The structure as of now sits on post and blocks right at the shoreline of the saltwater canal.

It offers amazing views and the water is filled with clams and oysters. Can be a great opportunity to renovate this into an amazing little cabin.

Our big thanks to Joceile Moore for sharing this lovely property and tiny shelter with us!
