Overview

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!

About Dave Keyte

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.

Dave Keyte purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Dave Keyte chose Michigan

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Fun in the Snow UP Style!

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin, great location and lots of snow. David and his team have thought out all the little details as it relates to renting a great cabin. From the spacious parking area for our snowmobile trailer, to the custom logo'd towels and glassware, the little extras that David and his team provide make such a difference. Thanks again and we can't wait to get back in 2018!

Nice cabin for group of 10 adults for snowmobiling

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a couples 3 day weekend. The driveway was plowed nicely and there was plenty of room for our 5 trucks and trailers. Upon entry, it does seem smaller than the photos, however, it easily accommodated our group. The mechanically inclined members of our group like all the metal work. Everything was "rock" solid. The kitchen was well stocked. Communication was excellent. The bedrooms are nice as well as the mattresses. The stereo system has an awesome subwoofer. The gas fireplace is easy to control on is functional. The snowmobile trail is about 1/4 mile away in which you would enter at Bear trap. The only minor complaint, which is similar to other comments, is that the place is noisy for sleeping. If you have any snorers in the group, you will be serenaded by ALL of them. The loft is probably best suited for children. Adults can not stand. Do not put your light sleepers in the loft. We are already talking about booking for next year.
