Frank Zappa's Log Cabin

The cabin was originally built in 1915, amist the hills of the, then virgin Laurel Canyon, as sort of a luxury men's lodge. Then, it was lived in by former silent film cowboy icon Tom Mix. The original cabin has its own bowling ally in the basement and a giant fireplace. The grounds themselves are covered with man made caves, alcoves and wooded trails. In the 1960s, Frank Zappa and his family moved in. At that time, the house was a frequent stopping point for rockstars and was the site of many notorious parties. Tragically, the original cabin burned down. But a new house has been rebuilt with the ruins and landscaping intact.
