Set on a high bank next to Mascot Creek, Vincent Knorr's cabin is a carefully constructed small log structure. Measuring about 13 feet by 14 feet (and now shifted to a parallelogram rather than a rectangle), the round logs are saddle notched at the corners and chinked with moss. The roof is constructed of poles resting on the purlins and supporting a layer of moss; the purlins are pegged at the ends to keep the poles in place. The one-room cabin had a window in each wall, a stove in one corner, and a root cellar underneath. Nearby was a cache and an outhouse. Vincent Knorr, who signed his name in chalk over the doorway, built this cabin by the mid-1930s, when he had staked at least five claims on Mascot Creek.
The complex is within the Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve, but privately owned.
