Poseidon's cabin is low, long and solid, with all the windows facing the sea. The outer walls are rough gray stone with pieces of seashell and coral and look like the bottom of the ocean floor.
InteriorOn the inside, it has six empty bunk beds and the walls glow like abalone. In the graphic novel, a nightstand sits next to the bunk and a lamp is stuck to the wall near the top bunk. Later in the series, Poseidon adds a fountain for his sons, Percy Jackson and Tyson. Iris message, although it is unknown if the coins will ever run out. Percy sliced the fountain in half. Tyson later adds a few bronze Hippocampi on the ceiling as decorations. He also added unknown underwater plants and corals, sitting in the window sill, "more beautiful than the Demeter kids could whip up," Percy commented. A light blue chair sits next to the window in the graphic novel.
In the film adaptation, Poseidon's cabin is open and wooden with a Trident over the entryway and two banners with a Trident on it and says Poseidon's Cabin on it. There are also tent canvases on the windows for privacy. Inside the cabin, it has a hammock, chairs, desks, a life-sized metal Trident, scrolls, and a book. There is also a steering wheel, a telescope, and lanterns. The cabin leads to its a personal dock. The cabin is built near the beach and has an excellent view of the lake.

- Atmokinesis (limited): They can create small hurricanes and other types of storms to attack others or they can use it for defense.
- Aerokinesis (limited): They have limited control over the wind. They are able to summon strong winds, which they can use to create storms such as hurricanes and typhoons.

They are able to use this ability to create storms, such as hurricanes, as shown when Percy used this skill unintentionally on one occasion, while creating his own miniature hurricane to fight Hyperion. Sparks of lightning appeared as his hurricane increased in power. His control of this ability, however, is far less than that of a child of Zeus and appears to be a limited side effect of his storms.
- Cryokinesis (limited): They have very limited control over ice; as shown by Percy in The Son of Neptune when he creates an icy hurricane to attack all nearby monsters.
Some legacies of Poseidon have different powers. They cannot do any of the above powers, but, if a legacy of Poseidon is from the line from Periclymenus, then they have the ability to shapeshift into animals. Other Legacies won't have this ability.

- A Saltwater Fountain was provided by Poseidon for his children in the Poseidon Cabin in The Titan's Curse until Percy destroyed it in The Battle of the Labyrinth being scared of what he was hearing and seeing (about Nico di Angelo).
Although not said to be the cabin, Percy stays in an open cabin by the beach built by his father, Poseidon. Chiron stated that Poseidon built it just for Percy, although he might have just meant all of his children, though he had no other demigod children. In the cabin, there was a life-sized trident and many other helpful objects that Percy could use. The cabin gave an excellent view of the ocean.
- Poseidon's cabin is tied with Zeus' cabin for having the second least amount of known possible inhabitants, with each cabin having only two inhabitants each.
- However now that Thalia Grace is a Hunter, she would stay in the Artemis cabin, meaning that Poseidon's Cabin has the second least amount of occupants.
