perfect honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean, friendly and inviting. It was the perfect cabin for our honeymoon. The owner was friendly and easy to work with. I will most definitely be back again.

I already miss the lake just feet outside the side door and the sound of nature wafting through the windows!

Clean and Cozy cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The cozy river cottage looks small but don't let it fool you in the inside. It's a perfect vacation home for 6 people! Everything is clean. It's only 15 minutes away from Munising, 2 minutes away from the beach, 5 minutes away from the first waterfall and a foot away from the river. The only thing I would recommend is cleaned all the spider's web on the front door. It was kind of terrific when you arrive late at night but it was a good laugh! We'll definitely come back again!

Lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage right on the Autrain River. The cottage is very clean and comfortable. We were able to kayak right off the front dock. The location is great! Not too far a drive to Munising for the cruise of Pictured Rocks. Just a mile up the road is Lake Superior. Nice beaches, beautiful sunsets. I would highly recommend this place and would love to come back for another visit!!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was a perfect size for our family of 5! The place was very clean and had everything we needed. The location is great, with easy access to kayak rentals, Lake Superior and Pictured Rocks.

Lisa, the property manager was very responsive, replacing a broken toaster same day and mailing me the power cord I left behind!

We would definitely book again!

Lovely cottage right on the river

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three nights at the Cozy River Cottage. It is about 40 minutes from downtown Marquette and about 15 minutes from downtown Munising. It's tucked away from the tourist towns, but conveniently located so that you can visit them if you want. The cottage was very clean and was the best stocked property that we have stayed at to date. The property manager was very responsive to all inquiries and they even made an exception for earlier arrival time (this was during non-peak season however). The river was beautiful to sit by and we came at the perfect time - no other visitors in the nearby cottages :) The 'woodstove' was a nice feature and there was a small grocery store a mile down the road which came in handy.

The only tip I'd offer is to watch for the blue sign that says 'Riverside Condominiums' as we passed it - twice! The address would not come up for us in our app or on MapQuest. Made it more of an adventure I guess ;)
