Great lakefront home with plenty of room for the family and friends.

We spent Memorial Day Weekend at this wonderful lakeside home and loved the deck, view and family space. Was a little early for good fishing but it didn't impact our fun... would certainly rent again.

Lovely Week, Fun & Quiet

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over the labor day weekend this fall and really enjoyed the house and lake. There is plenty of room for people, both bedroom wise and living areas. We were two families and felt very comfortable.

The kitchen is nice, we cooked in most days. Easy to use appliances if not the most modern, but in good working order. Laundry is downstairs and easy to use.

Bummer about the hot tub not working, but we new that coming in. Would be amazing place if it did work. As it was, we didn't really care as we spent days at the gorgeous beach right out the back door. There is a private dock with sugar sand beach and fire pit. The lake is shallow for quite a ways out so it was fun swimming for the kids. Clear and beautiful water.

Only drawbacks: Garage must have had water damage - very dank smell so we just kept the doors closed and didn't use it. Garbage can is very small, could use a larger one.

early fall visit

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful setting on Lake Au Train. No cell service and no land line. Fireplace completely clogged up,

no smoke alarms. No oven, an early 1970 convection oven which 4 fairly smart people could not figure out how to work, please leave instructions. The cleaning fee means you must do the linen laundry in the morning before you check out. we stayed in October and found the home very comfortable and clean and would probably have enjoyed more amenities in the summer months. Great deck with chairs overlooking the lake and lounge chairs on a sandy beach. The area is beautiful and a must stop attraction is the Lakenenland sculpture park off of M28 north of town. We had a great time and would return.

Beautiful house, perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Spacious, clean home with a great location on Au Train Lake. The lake is clean and shallow, great for paddle boarding, kayaking, and little ones swimming. The home has great views of the lake from both inside and out, and was well equipped with the basics for our week-long stay. Only negatives - the WiFi was spotty and typically would not work for several hours each day, living room furniture was not terribly comfortable. Would still return - this house is set up great for the large number of people in our group.

This place exceeded my expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third trip to Au Train ~ our first renting this property. The pictures don't really do it justice. It's beyond wonderful! We are a family of 5 (kids ages 9, 10, and 13) and were joined by Grandma, sister, and two more kids (5 and 15) for a couple of days. Plenty of room for all. Lake Au Train is quiet, clear, and shallow (ideal for wading, canoeing, and relaxing). The house is clean, spacious, and functional. The location is perfect ~ right between Marquette and Munising ~ and you will find no shortage of things to do. The beaches are the most beautiful I've seen and are practically deserted during the week. The cold water of Lake Superior are great for swimming (if you are brave or have lots of blubber). Make sure to jump off the bridge on M28. It's a right of passage! The little gas station and restaurant in Au Train should have everything you need!

Large home with beautiful lake view and beach

  • 4 of 5

This home had 3 large bedrooms on a beautiful and large lake lot on north side of lake-important because wind coming off the lake is a deterrant to mosquitoes! Home was very clean and we appreciated having a canoe for use on the lake. There are several basics I expected from other trips that were missing that would've been helpful to have or know that I needed to pack: good corkscrew, a can opener, nylon spatulas for their nonstick pans, cooking oil, a cheese grater, a pizza cutter and some actually sharp knives for the cutlery holder. There is a dishwasher, but no detergent, so that wasn't helpful and we had to wash dishes by the second day. For the price and large cleaning fee, we expected to be able to run the dishwasher. I was cold the first night, so an extra blanket in each bedroom would be nice, too. Our family had a great time overall and loved the location. Keep in mind that a stocked store is a 20 min drive away when you pack.

Owner's Response: This is our very first month with this rental and realized we would be missing some things. Thank you so much for the feedback. We did recently put in a new water system and the dishwasher soap must have been moved to the back of the cabinet under the sink. We also did a check for the additional items and found two extra blankets in the hall closet, a pampered chef cheese grater near the bowls, three new knives in the silverware drawer with sleeves on them and an air compressed wine opener in one of the drawers. We really appreciate the suggestions and will be sure to better place these items to be located easily by renters. It is extremely important to us to make sure each family that stays with us feels relaxed and at their home away from home. AuTrain Grocery is located within two miles of the home. It is a small store that contains all basic grocery and household items, along with a small deli and great homemade pasties. Larger chain grocery stores are located in the Munising Pictured Rocks area approximately 15 miles away. Again, this information is so helpful to remind us what to have for those that have never been here before. Growing up here, we tend to forget some of the things we take for granted. We hope you come back and stay with us again!
