About the property

Comfortable Cabin (Sleeps 16)

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 to do what you like. 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!

Why Dave Keyte chose Shingleton

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

Sleeps up to 16 guests in beds. Sitting/lounging space on the main floor AND in the basement.

The cabin worked perfectly for our 3 families that came together for a vacation we’ll never forget!! It was close to all the things we wanted to do, but we didn’t even want to leave that much because the cabin was so relaxing. We utilized the fire pit a lot for hot dogs and s’mores, and enjoyed the evening around the bar after the kids were in bed. The basement was awesome for a movie night for the kid, and the loft was an awesome spot for them to sit and play a board game. The cabin had everything we needed minus our clothes and food! And the caretakers were amazing in checking in and answering all of our questions. We will definitely be back!

Great place. There is WAY more than meets the eyes here.

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. I could go on and on. Just a few little things that I noticed. There was a few burd out light bulbs and no replacements to be found.

I contributed a slow cooker to the cabin.

Great home-base for 3 active families

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 3 families - 13 people in all - including 5 teenagers and 2 kids. This cabin is secluded yet close to loads of stunning natural features of the Pictured Rock area.

We loved the fire pit, the bar, the living/dining area, and deck. The ping pong table was a hit, and more than one person picked a few tunes on the guitar. Nice sound system with Bluetooth access. The cabin felt roomier than we expected and was perfect for our group. The decor and cleanliness were top-notch. The two bathrooms worked well for a group our size as long as we staggered. The loft of four beds was perfect for the four teenage boys. The cabin was quiet and private, adding to the fun of our 4-night stay.

The cabin could use a new coffeemaker. Some of the basement rooms felt a little “basement-y” and would benefit from bedside lamps or nightlights. The cabin instructions say that SOME toilet paper and garbage bags will be provided, and beyond that the party is responsible. It seems like the group size and length of stay should be taken into consideration; we ended up picking up extra T.P., used grocery bags as back-up garbage bags, and just about ran short of dish-washing detergent. We would have rated the cabin 5 out of 5 if the consumables has not been a concern. The cabin came with very clear instructions for almost everything! In addition to garbage instructions, it would also be helpful to have instructions for recycling.
