The cabin is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. The ground is uneven and the walk to the beach is down a sandy hill.

The Doctor's House is part of a "compound" known as "Tondakea Lodge" which consists of three 2 bedroom cabins, one 4 bedroom house, and one 2 bedroom house (known as the Chateau) It was once was the home and school of Franz Johnston, (of the Group of Seven artists), and later became a resort in the 50s.

Although updates have been made over the years, the buildings still retain their original charm and rustic feel.
