Things to See and Do
Summer offers many interesting things to do while you are vacationing in the area. The cabin is only 15 minutes from Munising where you might like to visit the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, take the Pictured Rocks Cruise, or go on the Shipwreck Tour. There is a casino in Christmas, several waterfalls in the area, and hiking trails of various lengths.
Swimmers and those who just want to get their feet wet will enjoy the swimming beach at nearby Au Train Lake at the Hiawatha National Forest Campground or the sand beach on Lake Superior at AuTrain. Canoes can be rented in AuTrain for a paddle in the lake or down the AuTrain River all the way to Lake Superior - a really fun way to spend the afternoon.
ATV trails go right by the cabin. Valley Spur or Bruno's Run Mountain Bike trails are just a few minutes away or you can ride the back roads of the Hiawatha National Forest. Take your bikes over to Grand Island for a great ride on over 20 miles of trails, or rent a bike to take to Grand Island at the Grand Island Ferry dock just west of Munising.
Fishermen will enjoy all the lakes and streams in the Hiawatha National Forest, Charter fishing on Lake Superior, or guided inland fishing trips. Hunters will find abundant game in the public lands of the National Forest.
Winter enthusiasts will love this cottage located right on the snowmobile trails so you can ride from your door on the hundreds of miles of groomed trails that run throughout Alger County. The Buckhorn Restaurant and Lounge is nearby with gas available and there are connecting trails all over the Upper Peninsula for some great riding.
Skiers will enjoy the many great groomed cross country ski trails in the area and might want to try out the lighted trail in Christmas for a quiet evening under the stars. Dogsled rides are available nearby for those who would like to take a team through the woods.
The Kro's Nest and Sno Shed Cabins are located southwest of Munising on Crossover Road. Take M-94 west of Munising to the intersection with 16 Mile Lake Road. Turn south to the intersection with Crossover Road.
Pets welcome with prior approval.
