15 minutes to The Big 'M' Trail (The Big 'M' trail is a 37.9 mile loop trail system located in a canopy of hardwoods off of M-55 between Cadillac and Wellston. The trail offers a variety of terrain to challenge every biking and skiing experience level as you traverse up and down hills through the woods.
Mountain Biking - Most of the 25-miles of single track trail are one-way (clock-wise) and should not be biked backwards. The bike trail is open from April to September.
Cross-Country Skiing - The 18-miles of trail are groomed and the parking lot is plowed in winter, usually starting in December. There is also a chalet available for skiers. Snowfall averages 130 inches from December to March, but the best skiing is usually in January and February. One loop provides several miles of ungroomed trail that is is perfect for snowshoeing.
Hiking - Although the trail is primarily used by Mountain Bikers, it is open to hiking. The trail runs near, but is not connected to, the North Country National Scenic Trail for a short stretch.
The Marzinski Horseback Riding Trail also crosses the Big M trail at two locations.)
Snowmobiles can be rented and delivered right to the cabin.

Why the Owner Chose Brethren, MI, USA:
We wanted a log home in the woods in northern Michigan that felt like we were in northern Michigan. When we want to get away from it all...we want to get away from it all. The feeling you get from being in a log cabin in woods is like no other and yet it's still not far from small towns and city's, beaches, rivers, a casino, shopping, downhill skiing, golfing, fishing, snowmobiling and so much more!!!!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Mushrooming, stargazing, campfires, hiking, barbecues, clean and comfortable log cabin, peace and quiet!
