QuoteI plan to support the cabin on a pier and beam foundation that will be anchored into the bedrock with concrete footings and grouted-in rebar anchors. I know this foundation is not ideal, but I cannot think of a better foundation for a boat access, off-grid cabin

Making a moment resisting connection between pier and beam would be another, doing the same between rock and pier would be a third. There appear to be a few rocks, it doesn't take that much mortar to build a wall. Calculate load and provide resistance, it doesn't have to be concrete.
