Winter (as some cabins are so cold otherwise in the Winter), this one stays warm (even through the 40 below we had in 2013-2014 Winter).
HELPFUL REMINDERS: Remember at times if cell phone coverage gets low or goes out they say (and we have heard of experiences) that text messages (because they take less power) will send out. So, have some emergency numbers for the area in your phone. Bring an area brochure with you that has some emergency phone numbers in case your party breaks down on the trail, other emergencies, run out of gas, etc. Emergency hand warmer packs, blanket, spare phone or battery supply unit (stores power for your phone), emergency numbers list are all good ideas for family and friends. Some people carry spare gasoline with them if they travel far (some units come in flat storage containers, or emergency siphon to get gas out of another parties unit as each unit uses gasoline differently. Check NEW maps for gas stations (maps and businesses change and some close during the Winter). Some restaurants and bars sell gas farther north. There is charge card 24 hour gas (should be working at the gas station by casino) in Watersmeet, MI, Land O Lakes, WI (gas station by the border; BP gas station or Stateline Station; across from snowmobile, ORV, misc. dealer; off highway area 45). If the power goes out in the area from a storm, Rogers Bar has generated power and you could enjoy some beverages there or good place to gather for an emergency. +
