The owners of cabins (Appellants) located on the Rock Creek Lake front had been in the area since 1922, with the consent of the surrounding ranch. The construction has been built with the consent and help of the ranch owners. No written agreements were entered into between the ranch owners and cabin owners in the earlier years. In 1963, though, the cabin owners entered into license agreements with the ranch owners, which included a termination provision. Over the years, notice of termination was never served on the ranch owners, even though provisions of the license agreement had been breached by various cabin owners. The ranch was sold to a corporation (Appellees), who sent the cabin owners a notice of termination of their licenses, which was against the wishes of the original ranch owners. Appellants filed an action for interlocutory and permanent injunctive relief, and to quiet the title in their cabins and establish permanent easements.
