Property was very comfortable and was perfect for our family get away.

  • 4 of 5

House was perfect and provided plenty of room to spread out. The great room has a gorgeous view of the lake. A very quiet area and pretty private. We had a great time. If the weather had cooperated, we might have enjoyed the lake. The only issue we had was the wifi would go out for periods of time.

loved the location and beach.

  • 3 of 5

Though somewhat worn the property was very comfortable. Location facing south was great if we had Northwind we were sheltered, if wind out of the south it was warm. Easy to boat anywhere on the lake and short drives to Christmas and Munising.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
