What A Redditor Found In This Abandoned Cabin In The Woods Is Chilling

featured-imageImagine that you’re living in a fairly isolated place. Then imagine that just across the woods from you is a cabin that looks like it was designed for the set of a Nightmare on Elm Street movie.


What would you do? This isn’t a theoretical question. It’s exactly the question that a Redditor /u/Durnse found himself facing every single day.

For a long time, his solution was simple – pretend the place wasn’t there. But over time, he found his curiosity more and more aroused until one day, he set off to find out what lay within those walls. You won’t believe what he found there.

At a Distance

The house sits above a river and in the middle of a deserted wood. It’s been in that state for as long as he can remember. He tried to find out who owned the place.

The Mystery Deepens

002-the-mystery-deepens-1001976There is no known owner of the cabin in the woods. It’s a mystery as to who built it and why it’s there. It just is. /u/Durnse finally summoned up the courage to cross the stream and the first thing he found there was the rusty old pump.

The View From the Pump

The steps up were eroded and covered in lichens and moss. The dead leaves of Autumn covered the landscape in a near perfect carpet. He summoned up his courage and drew closer.

Getting Closer
