The isolated cabin is a location in the Forest region of Appalachia.[1]


The isolated cabin has a small interior living area, with a suitcase on the destroyed bed, a locked safe (Picklock 0) against the left wall, and a toolbox on the table. There is a water pump and cooking station just outside the cabin, along with a cooler on the destroyed bench.

The cabin has a weapons workbench near the back corner of the and the remains of Reuben Gill, wearing a Vault 51 jumpsuit. On Gill's body, one will find a safe key and two notes.

There are woodpiles near the cooking station and additional piles lined up alongside the cabin. There is an outhouse just up the hill containing a first aid kit and a note. The doghouse contains science equipment such as test tubes and has a periodic table of elements on the inside wall. Two starlight creeper bushes grow outside the cabin.

Notable loot


The isolated cabin appears only in Fallout 76 and expanded in the Steel Dawn update.

Behind the scenes

Inside the doghouse near the rusted truck is a mathematical formula written in chalk. This is an Einstein field equation and gravitational constant, first published by Albert Einstein in 1915.



  1. Fallout 76 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide p.287: "06. ISOLATED CABIN
    This modest shack is set in the woods; the inhabitant is long gone. Read the notes scattered about to get a glimpse of a past life. Check the tent and outhouse. Either the world's cleverest dog resided here, or a chemist was using the shack's kennel as a hiding place."
