Au Train cottage description

Enjoy the splendor of Fall, the still quiet of Winter, the first blooms of Spring, or a gorgeous summer on the shores of Lake Superior. Reserve your vacation at one of our three Lake Superior shore front properties in Au Train on Shelter Bay Harbor!

Our Classic Log Home is comfortable and cozy. The property is located just ten feet from the shore. It is showcased on 275 feet of private shoreline. Our cabin has all the upgrades you'll need without sacrificing rustic charm. Built in the 1930s out of log telegraph poles, it boasts a lovely stone fireplace, a 10' by 30' screened porch, and walls that are 80% glass!

There are three bedrooms upstairs, two of which have queen beds and sixteen-foot glass walls with a panoramic view of Shelter Bay and AuTrain Island. The other bedroom has two twin beds. The kitchen is all glass. If cooking isn't your thing, head to the Brownstone Inn, five minutes away, for great home-cooked meals at reasonable prices.

Enjoy the naturalized garden, or tiptoe out into the lake and sunbathe on one of the boulders and watch the seagulls. Enjoy the stars and build a bonfire on still nights. The grounds have been planted with privacy in mind, with pines on the perimeter and mature birch in the center, so neighbors aren't visible.

The Classic Log Home is a retreat available year-round.

We have two other properties as well. Camp Corina is situated on a peninsula at the end of Shelter Bay road on 3.5 acres and is completely private, surrounded by forest and Lake Superior. Camp Corina has unsurpassed panoramic views of Au Train island, Au Train Bay, and Shelter Bay Harbor. It has 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, fireplace, full kitchen, dinning room, and 20‘ X 23‘ living room.

Our third property, The Beach House, is for beach lovers. The property is cozy and charming with phenomenal views of Au Train Bay, Au Train Island, and Shelterbay Harbor. You enter the property by a foot bridge. The cottage has a river on one side and a beach on the other. The river runs down through the beach. The cottage has 2 bedrooms downstairs, 1 loft bedroom, living room, dining room, and kitchen as well as a screened in porch. There are 3 queen sized beds.

We own 3 properties in Shelter Bay. Please check out our other listings.
