A large open, wheelchair accessible, Front Entrance welcomes you to a spacious Reception Area with plenty of seating for your comfort, as you wait for the rest of your party to arrive. Toward the lake is the Front Dining Room, the original structure of the business. Established in 1935, it was a bar with dancing. In 1938 two brothers George and Einer Keldsen purchased the business. Shortly after, Einer passed away. George and his wife Betty continued to make the Log Cabin a thriving business, and made a Friday Night Fish fry a favorite with diners, for only 99 Cents. In 1990 the business sold to new owners, and in 1996 the bar was expanded and relocated. Today, the Dining Room, surrounded by large windows - provides a spectacular 180 degree view of Lake Michigan and the natural landscape alongside the building. Additionally, the overhead rafter system and beautiful vertical pine panels display the attention to detail and superior craftsmanship of yesteryear. The "Northwoods" Themed Interior, a fireplace, mirrored walls, and an automatic Grand Player Piano add to the ambience of this dining area. A newer addition at the other end of the building provides another Dining Area and a beautiful Bar. There are large screen TVs to watch your favorite sports, and a cozy relaxing seating area placed before a large stone fireplace where you can warm up after a day of cross country skiing or ice fishing on the Bay. This dining area provides access to a lovely outside deck area with umbrella tables and seating, and a gazebo. An artesian spring supplies continuous water to a picturesque pond and creek that runs alongside this outdoor space.
