The Grizzly Den is Ready for Renters!

The Grizzly Den is officially open for renting. You can find the Grizzly Den on Facebook by typing in "The Grizzly Den Log Cabin Rental" in the search bar or just follow the link on my wall. Also, the Grizzly Den has it's own blog for advertising. I will still post pictures on here, but if you have friends who don't know me and just want to look at the Grizzly Den, they can go here:

Here are the latest pictures...

If you click on the above pictures, you should be able to access a slideshow which will make the pictures larger for your viewing.

Here is the info as stated on the Grizzly Den's Blog:

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.

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 full bed.

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.

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

A two night minimum stay is required. Rates are $125 per night or $100 per night for a 5 night stay or more.

Please call us at 906.298.1378 or email

We look forward to seeing you and sharing the Grizzly Den experience with you!
