Hank Williams Cabin is part of the Children’s Harbor grounds on Lake Martin. Children’s Harbor serves as a camp for sick and disabled children and their families with ties to Birmingham’s Children’s Hospital of Alabama and other child-centered organizations.
Visitors can stay in the cabin in much the same way Williams did more than 60 years ago. From the old metal table to the kitschy curtains and the Coca-Cola glasses in the classic metal pantry, the cabin screams “1950s.” The two bedrooms each have two twin beds and the living room furniture is straight out of “Green Acres.”
There are no televisions or Wi-Fi and the old-style radio is there for decoration, not for actual use.
A glider swing on the back porch faces the water. The rhythm of the water meeting the land and the bells ringing on a floating buoy break the stillness and it’s easy to imagine Williams pulling out his guitar to break the calm.
