Conveniently located in the heart of the upper peninsula just minutes from Pictured Rocks, Lake Superior, dozens of waterfalls and endless outdoor activities and adventures. AuTrain River Cottages are located in a private association that is quiet and beautiful. There is about a 100 yards of river frontage to enjoy and relax next to. Cottages are pet friendly and range from one bedroom to 4 bedrooms and can accommodate from one to 8 guests. Each Cottage has all amenities included like WiFi, towels, linens, blankets, pillows and cooking supplies. There is a fire-pit area for guests to enjoy a fire w/a view of the river and wood can be purchased locally. Also included is a gas grill w/propane, and a canoe w/paddles and preservers. Launching of the canoe is on site and shuttle service is available. Additional kayaks are available for rent. A fishing boat w/motor are available to you on site for a discounted rate. Mooring your own boat is a possibility, contact me for details.
This Cottage, "DA Loft" is very old, it is a mixture of old log and pine interior with a new "old style" pine floor throughout. It is an open concept with cathedral ceiling and a nice sized loft. There is plenty of space and it easily accommodates 2-8 guests. This cottage is generally the most favored due to it's size and character. The front porch is big and it overlooks the river and has the best view of them all. There is a 43" HDTV w/Netflix streaming and WiFi along with plenty of seating in the living room area. There is a nice expandable dining table "circa 1950's" that will seat everyone staying. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking meals. There are 2 queen beds and 2 double size beds in the cabin. There is a nice grill outside on the deck overlooking the river.
The AuTrain River provides excellent swimming, and canoeing/kayaking as it winds 12 miles through the Hiawatha National Forest. Further down river puts you into Lake Superior and quite possibly the best beach on all of Lake Superior. Up river is the beautiful AuTrain Lake which provides a wonderful place to enjoy water sports, fishing or just a relaxing cruise. Bass, Walleye or Pike are your most commonly fished.
Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore located in Munising is only 15 minutes away and there are over a dozen waterfalls within a 30 mile radius. The National Lakeshore provides days worth of outdoor activities. If you are into fishing, Trout and Salmon are the most commonly fished in Lake Superior.
