Property description

We were recently filmed for a new Reality makeover TV show on the Discovery Channel. Look at our photos the transformation is amazing.

The Log Cabin Retreat is nestled among the hiking and snowmobiling /ATV trails of the Hiawatha region of Munising Michigan. It's also located among the Lakeshore Trail system and all of the activities that Munising's Pictured Rocks has to offer. Beaches are all nearby. Just a short drive to town for supplies but far enough away to be very private.

The Log Cabin Retreat sleeps up to 16 guests and is surrounded by 20 acres of wooded property. It has two full bathrooms with a basement, main floor and a loft that sleeps additional guests. Small enough to be quaint for one family and large enough to sleep 16 guests. We specialize in winter snowmobiling and in summer outdoor activities. PERFECT location with quick access to everything the area offers. Not in town but in the woods so you have the up north private feeling you are looking for.

The kitchen is fully stocked for your convenience. The living room has ample room for hanging out and relaxing. Stoke up the fire and just relax. The basement is finished and fully furnished. Plenty of room here for additional guests. Card playing, visiting or just relaxing - the basement is ready to go.

All bedding and bath towels are included along with all toiletries.

Sit on our deck with a view to the forest, apple trees and wildlife. We have a charcoal grill available for your use also. We also have a nice fire pit area for roasting marshmallows.

Park in our large driveway and yard. Bring your snowmobile trailers and trucks. We have plenty of room. Pull in and pull out (the access is easy). We are located at the base of the trails (next to Haywire trail #8). The famous Bear Trap Bar is just 1/4th of a mile down the road. Our guests have always enjoyed this restaurant / bar.

We are only a short drive to Kewadin Casino in Christmas. Plenty to do in our area. Happy to help you out. Most of our guests are repeat guests. That says a lot about our cabin!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Jim Brownell of Au Gres Michigan owns this beautiful log cabin. Jim is a hiker and cross country skier and has enjoyed the Lakeshore Trail System and the Pictured Rocks on many occasions. We bough this cabin in 2012 and have had many great times visiting all that the Munising area of Michigan's Upper Peninsula has to offer. Come up and be our guests!

Why the Owner Chose Munising:
Our cabin is the largest in the area that sleeps up to 16 guests and is nestled on 20 acres (and more) of forest near the Pictured Rock lakeshore area. We are in the middle of all of the snowmobile and ATV trails. We are far enough from town to be secluded yet close enough to get supplies when needed. This past summer we were featured on a major TV Network's new before and after show. More to come on that as it will air in January 2015.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Sleeps up to 16 guests.
