From "For British Eyes Only"
The family cabin was originally located near in Lake Tahoe, near Reno. The land was sold off by the family but the family got to keep half of the cabin.
As a child, Michael was promised by George to visit the cabin but George always took a mistress to the cabin instead. G.O.B. was never told about the cabin, so Michael offered to take him to the cabin for one first time before it was carted off. However, Michael changed his mind and instead took George Michael. The next morning they found out they were being carted away, still in the cabin, by George Bluth. ("The Cabin Show")
On the porch of the cabin, on the side of the highway, Michael agrees to help George stay out of prison. He gets the Warden to agree to let him wear an ankle and remain under house arrest. Lindsay Bluth Fünke is later forced to drive the cabin, much to her chagrin. The Bluth family tried to use the cabin as a trailer for Andy Griffith, who took offense to it. ("For British Eyes Only")
Michael: We sold the property. I worked it out so that we could relocate the cabin, but it is going to be up in Tahoe for another couple of days. Maybe you can take a date up there.
Lucille: How am I supposed to find someone willing to go into that musty old claptrap?
Michael: The cabin! Yes, th... well, that would be difficult, too.From "The Cabin Show"
Michael: Lindsay, didn’t want to tell you earlier, but I did get you a car.
Lindsay: No way? Is it a Lexus?
Michael: It’s more like a Lincoln.From "For British Eyes Only"
