These cabins were built initially as temporary accommodation for fishermen in the cod season. They are usually anchored near the sea on stilts. They originally had two rooms, one for work and one with bunk beds. Currently, they are of all sizes. Many new ones are being built. They have never been used by fishermen. There are no small "resorts". Due to the charm of the property asking prices to stay in a Rorbuer are exorbitant.
