Welcome to Whiskey Jim's Log Cabin Retreat. Our cabin has been a very popular cabin rental in the Munising Michigan area for many years with much success. Owned and operated by Jim Brownell and his family, our home was recently chosen to be on the Discovery Channel for the new Epic Mancave Builds television show. Of the hundreds of homes in the competition for this series, our home was one of four homes chosen for this new show. Each home had a theme and our theme was whiskey! As you look around you will notice the whiskey theme and you'll be awed at the beauty of the build and the transformation our cabin went through.

The construction was completed by Brandon, Thomas, and their crew from the Firemass Metal Company in Utah. Inside the cabin you will find an amazing bar made from real oak barrel slats and fashioned with metal for an unbelievably rustic yet modern finish. Our bar stools are made from an oak tree that was recovered from a mud bog and it is estimated to be over 200 years old. Behind the bar is a real whiskey still made from copper. You just don't find this in the average log cabin. We even have three hidden compartments for Whiskey Jim's private stock.

The dining room table and chairs are also made from reclaimed oak that is also estimated to be over 200 years old. Everything matches from the wood to the metal to the design. The experience you feel from being in our home takes your breath away. The interior was designed by some of the industries most acclaimed designers from California and New York. You will notice the warm feeling and the flow of the colors from the wood on the floor to the ceiling and in between with all of the metal that is strategically used in our cabin. This truly is a sight to see!

And for those of you who just want to come in from a long hike or a rough snowmobile ride on the trail and plop down on a couch don't worry--our lower level is fully furnished and has the right feel for lounging around.   Both the main level and the lower level have something to offer everyone at any given time. 

Come and see our cabin for yourself! Our whiskey man cave is the most enjoyable and relaxing mancave in all of Northern Michigan's Upper Peninsula.   Our area has so many sights to see and so many things to do that you will find endless ways to occupy your time.  Whether you are a hiker, bird watcher, trail rider, snowmobiler, Pictured Rocks hiker, kayaker or skier our small part of heaven has a lot to offer you and your group. 

Our Log Cabin Retreat can handle large groups of 18 (more if you don't mind the floor or tents in our many acres of property) or small groups of any size. Munising is truly is an amazing area of the world and we are proud of be able to offer our property to you as our guests.

Best wishes from Whiskey Jim and his family.
