About David Berg

4th generation Yooper with a love of the Hiawatha National Forest and the surrounding outdoors. I spend as much time possible exploring out my back door and find new and wonderful places every year. The Au Train River is one of the places we always take company for a relaxing paddle. It's a great summer tradition.

David Berg purchased this cottage in 2014

Why David Berg chose Upper Peninsula

I live close by on Lake Superior and chose to purchase a rental property in Au Train because it is centrally located to many excellent outdoor activities and provides a serene experience with a touch of the old resort area feel.

What makes this cottage unique

The river is at your doorstep and Au Train Lake and Lake Superior are only a mile away. Lake Superior is not popular for swimming since it is so cold, but the beach in Au Train is a very popular swimming area. When my dad was a kid in the 1930's he would hitch rides with his friends, standing on the car's running boards, to get to this favorite beach. This area also provides great paddling opportunities in the bay, river, or dozens of nearby inland lakes. Of course the big draws are pictured rocks and grand island, but there are so many things to do in any direction. Great hiking and biking (Marquette and Munising have many miles of great mountain biking trails), boating, fishing, birding, sightseeing, and in the winter skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. Never get tired of adventure here. On the other hand, it's also a great place to kick up your feet and relax.

Aweson time!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful! Very well located and cozy. We have specials thanks to the owner, Dave, for his great tour to the waterfalls and Au Train point. We would never made it there without him. And the scenery was awesome! Very tempting to come back and take Dave's offer to go ice cave and frozen waterfalls photo-hunting in winter :)

Great cabin and fun area to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Au Train. Cabin comfortable and clean. Can't beat the price also! Many things to do in the area, so many we couldn't do them all. Great for outdoors people if you like to kayak/canoe with the river right there. Water falls all over to hike to, great beaches, four wheel trails just up the road, boat tours, ect. ect. Fall colors were fantastic! Minor downfall is you are right next to the road so you get a little traffic noise. Not enough to change my mind about going back. David also provided great communications. Thank you.

Beautiful Cabin in a Perfect Location

A beautiful cabin on a spectacular little River. We were able to get to everywhere that we wanted to go. The kayaks were the perfect touch. We had a wonderful time and the owners were very helpful. ☺

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was beautiful and contained all the items anyone would want. It was a perfect relaxing spot to watch the rain on our first full day. Kayaking down the river with my daughter was a blast. Also took advantage of the sunset at AuTrain beach and the Pictured Rocks boat tour. Would definitely come again.
