The cottage itself is accessed by entering an underwater corridor found on the swamp border in an unmarked location. While the entrance will not be marked on the player map, it can be distinguished from the remnants of an old road and an abandoned, broken wagon sunken nearby. However there is a map located in The Swamp Village that will show the location on the protagonist's map.
The front door to the Burned Cottage is locked, but the walls have crumbled, so access is still relatively simple. The key can be found inside the cottage.
There are two photos inside of the cottage: One of a helicopter, and one of a village full of people, both in a forest area. Picking up either of these up will trigger Human Spiders to spawn outside and block up the main entrance with a wardrobe.
- The underwater corridor requires a filled Oxygen Tank for access.
