Au Train cottage description

We invite you to come stay at your own private cottage and enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of Lake Superior and Au Train Island. It's the perfect place for a family vacation, a getaway for two, or a small group.

Nestled on the shore in Shelter Bay with 175 feet of private lake frontage, relax and unwind in a peaceful, quiet setting. Sit on the front porch with your favorite book, watch the birds as they come to the feeders and listen to the sound of the waves. If the weather isn't to your liking, grab your book and head to the screened/glassed-in gazebo by the lake. This picturesque bay with its view of moored boats, sunrises over Au Train Island and occasional eagles, provide a perfect backdrop for a true vacation.

You're sure to enjoy the vibrant fall colors provided by Mother Nature, as the cottage sits on the edge of the Hiawatha National Forest.


Further Details: This clean, tastefully decorated cottage comes with a fully-equipped kitchen and everything needed to make your stay as comfortable as being at home. The open kitchen, dining, and living area have breathtaking views of Lake Superior. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed and a small balcony for you to enjoy. The other bedroom has a queen-size bed and a set of large bunk beds.

Linens are provided but you do need to bring your own bath towels and washcloths. Smoking is NOT permitted inside the cottage and pets are sometimes allowed if approved in advance, although there is an additional fee. Unfortunately the cottage is not handicapped accessible.

Directly in front of the cottage you can launch your kayak, swim to and dive off of Seagull Rock or just relax. Deer Lake, a 1/2 mile away, is a beautiful inland lake with excellent swimming and picnic facilities.

Au Train, six miles east, features one of the most pristine white sand beaches on the south shore of Lake Superior and is a favorite swimming and canoeing spot. Nearby you can find area waterfalls, Grand Island Recreation Area Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, Seney Wildlife Refuge, US Forest Service Songbird Trail, and the Hiawatha National Forest.

After a days enjoyment, head to the fire pit before returning to the cottage for a restful nights sleep to the sound of the waves.

Shelter Bay Cottage is a perfect vacation spot!

About the Owner: Since we both love to travel, we know what guests want in an accommodation, cleanliness, coziness and comfort! You'll be sure to get all that and more at Shelter Bay Cottage!

We are third generation owner of the property and since we are both from Alger County, it made perfect sense to retire here along the shore of Lake Superior. We enjoyed many years here when our children were growing up, but now it's times to let others enjoy it as well. We can assist you in deciding what you want to do with your time, as we know the area very well.

Situated half way between Marquette and Munising, it's a perfect location for enjoying all that Alger and Marquette Counties have to offer. And since we live directly across the street from the cottage, we're available to make sure you have a pleasant stay.
