Shaffer Cabin is a rental facility that consists of a great room, sun porch, kitchen, rest rooms, and a storage room. The kitchen includes a refrigerator, stove, sink, and microwave oven. Renters must provide their own cookware, utensils, and dish towels. There is also a covered porch and breezeway, picnic tables, and a large grassy area.

In the fall of 2017, the Parks and Recreation department fully renovated Shaffer Cabin, installed a new heating and air conditioning system and adapted the facility for ADA accessibility.
