Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Au Train, MI, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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 has 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.
