THE GRIZZLY DEN LOG CABIN RENTAL ON THE PINE RIVER

Arbutus Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 comfortably)

The Grizzly Den is a smoke-free authentic log cabin on the Pine River in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It is approximately 40 miles north of the Mackinac Bridge. The cabin is located on Snowmobile Trail #472 northeast of Trout Lake. At the Grizzly Den, you'll experience the quiet, beauty, and seclusion of the U.P.

There is no electricity or television at the Grizzly Den. The cabin's green energy comes from a solar powered 12-volt electrical and lighting system, with optional gas lighting. There is a propane hot water heater and self-contained water pump system. The cabin offers a thermostat controlled vented gas fireplace for cozy heat, a full bath, and a kitchen with a gas stove. At this point in time, no refrigerator is available so make sure you bring your cooler.

The bedroom is in the upstairs loft which contains one queen and one full size bed. A comfy futon on the main floor opens to another bed. There is comfortable sleeping for up to 4 people at the Grizzly Den log cabin.

The cabin is located 1 1/2 miles from our home and is nestled in the Hiawatha National Forest. In the winter you park at our home and snowmobile the groomed trail to the Grizzly Den. We will assist with luggage to the log cabin upon arrival. All other seasons you can drive to the cabin.

The Grizzly Den is a year-round rental. Fishermen will be able to fish for brook, brown, and rainbow trout, perhaps seeing an occasional salmon swimming upstream. The bird hunters will enjoy the large population of Partridges in the area. The area is also excellent for bear hunting. The North Country hiking trail is just 3 miles west of the Grizzly Den on the same forest road. There are miles and miles of excellent off-road and ATV trails. Kayaking is not possible on the Pine River but there are many lakes in the area that provide excellent kayaking opportunities.

Sightseeing includes the Tahquamenon Falls, Soo Locks, the Mackinac Bridge and nearby Mackinac Island, as well as historical Whitefish Point. You can visit three of the five Great Lakes from our location. Lake Superior is approximately 35 miles to the north, and Lakes Michigan and Huron are approximately 35 miles south and east.

Your hosts ~ Steve and Deb VanDyke

Bought our cabin 10 years ago and now live up here permanently. We purchased the Grizzly Den Log Cabin as a second property to use for ourselves and as income.

Centrally located in the eastern Upper Peninsula allowing for many day trip opportunities.

We wanted a cabin that would allow us to get some peace and quiet out in nature, where we could do some cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. After spending our new years break at the Grizzly Den, I can easily say that it was PERFECT. It was warm and cozy even down to -16 degrees. There were plenty of trails to country ski on, including a 22 mile loop. As for snowshoes there were endless possibilities in every direction. To top it all off Steve and Deb were perfect hosts. Steve even started our car before picking us up, so we came back to a warm vehicle. We couldn't of asked for a better place to stay and hope to come back next year!

Eden with a log cabin

The first words out of my mouth when Steve led my husband and me deep into the forest to the Grizzly Den was, "Oh my word, we drove all the way to heaven".

If you are looking for seclusion, peace, and tranquility, this is the place. Don't let the fact that it's "off the grid" scare you. The beautiful log cabin has all the amenities except a fridge. We were told we may hear coyote and wolves, but we stayed during October and the only sounds we heard were the leaves falling off the trees - seriously! I had no idea you could hear a leaf hit the ground, but you can!

It's an easy drive from the cabin to both Mackinaw and the Soo, but we didn't bother. We just sat beside the river (or in front of the fireplace at night) and let all the tension seep away.

An absolutely phenomenal place! If you love to camp, but can't really do without plumbing, this is the place for you. My husband and I came here for an early anniversary trip and loved it! The cabin is located down a hill, so you have complete privacy from the "road". Steve did a wonderful job explaining how everything worked, the cabin was just as clean as the photos portray. I would highly recommend this cabin to friends and family.

This is truly an amazing cabin. My seven year old son and I really enjoyed the swimming, hiking and camp fires this location offers. Steve is the perfect host. He is careful to show you the cabin's features and truly loves sharing his slice of heaven. Thank you for opening your cabin to us. We will be back.

An absolutely perfect weekend getaway !

We could not have asked for a more perfect weekend! Steve is an incredible host and the cabin was far beyond what we had expected. Spotlessly clean with a great little gift basket which we refilled for the next guests. Just an absolutely beautiful property to reconnect with both nature and yourself. We loved the campfires, the "sounds of nature" surrounding us, and the peaceful setting with no cell phones or TV. I cannot express how wonderful a weekend it was. We are certainly coming back this fall for the colors!!
