About the Property

Cabin, Studio, Bath (Sleeps 16)

The cabin was recently featured on Discovery Channel's reality makeover TV show, Epic Mancave Builds. Check out the photos – the transformation is amazing!

Come experience “up north” in all of its rugged glory. Nestled among trails in the Hiawatha region of Munising, MI (next to Haywire Trail #8), The Log Cabin Retreat is also situated in very close proximity to the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore.

This is the PERFECT location with quick access to everything the area has to offer. Enjoy snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice climbing and ice fishing in the winter; hiking, ATVing, mountain biking, swimming, beaching, fishing and kayaking/canoeing in the summer. There is plenty to do in the area and the Log Cabin Crew is ALWAYS happy to help you out!

The Log Cabin Retreat is surrounded by 20 acres of private, wooded property. Luxuriate in solitude or enjoy Munising – your choice! The conveniences of town are just a short (10 minute) drive away. The famous Bear Trap Inn (restaurant and bar) is just 1/4 of a mile down the road: Our guests have always loved this place. Kewadin Casino in Christmas, MI is about a 20 minutes’ drive.

The cabin is quaint enough for one family, yet accommodating enough to comfortably host larger parties of up to 16. There are four bedrooms and two bathrooms on the basement and main floor levels, plus a loft.

Park your snowmobile trailers and trucks in the large driveway – there's tons of space to pull in and pull out (no need to back up). Stoke up the fire and relax. Imbibe at the bar. Take in forest and wildlife views from the comfort of the deck. Cook up a feast on the gas grill. Roast marshmallows and enjoy each other's company around the fire.

The cabin is yours to enjoy during your stay. There’s plenty of room here for you to do whatever you want. Make memories; do things your way. The kitchen is fully stocked. The living room is plush. The basement is fully furnished; laid-back. All bedding, bath towels and toiletries are included.

Most of our guests are repeat guests… Come and find out why!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: Dave Keyte, originally from Portage, MI owns this beautiful cabin. The UP has always been a special place for him and his wife Steph to unwind and connect with nature. They currently hail from the Pacific Northwest.

Why the Owner Chose Shingleton, MI, USA:
The Log Cabin Retreat is the largest log home in the area. It's nestled among the trees on 20 acres of private land near the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Located in the middle of the snowmobile and ATV trails. Far enough from town to be secluded, yet close enough to get supplies when needed.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Was featured on The Discovery Channel's Epic Manacles. Sleeps up to 16 guests in beds. Sitting/lounging space on the main floor AND in the basement.
