Bird Leg Cabin sits on Diver’s Isle in Cauldron Lake. It is named after the island’s topography from a top-down view, as it resembles a bird’s footprint.
I saw the door move and it was just the wind but it scared me at first. Alice would never go out at night so it couldnt be her.Alan Wake
In the 1970s, the cabin belonged to Thomas Zane and Barbara Jagger before a volcanic eruption destroyed it.
During the events in Alan Wake in 2010, Alan and Alice Wake arrive at Bird Leg Cabin on holiday in Bright Falls.
Bird Leg Cabin appears in the Dark Place during the two Alan Wake DLC episodes and Alan Wake’s American Nightmare.
The cabin is a two-story building with a living room, a kitchen on the bottom floor, and a bedroom and a study upstairs. During Alan and Alice’s stay in the cabin, a calendar on the wall reads “July 4th, 1970”.
An old hut outside has an old gas generator that provides electricity. Turning this generator on rewards the achievement “Let There Be Light.” The cabin has two porches: one in the front and one in the back, the one in the back has a radio and leads down to a dock on the island.
- The Anderson Brothers refer to the Dark Presence as Baba Yaga at one point. Baba Yaga was a witch in Slavic mythology who lived in a wood cabin that stood on the chicken’s legs.
- In an early version of the script, Bird Leg Cabin itself stood on giant bird legs and would ‘walk’ around in the darkness of the night.
