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.
The Cedar Cottage was my first cottage, I completely updated the interior and exterior of this place. It has become the "Honeymoon Cottage" as I typically have 4-6 honeymooners each year stay. Although it can sleep up to 4, It is perfectly setup for couples. The kitchen is fully stocked, there is A/C, WiFi and there is a 32" TV with internet streaming service. The bedroom has a pillowtop Queen which is very comfortable. Overall, it has tons of character as the walls are all original pine log and overall has that UP feel. I have been told it's "very cabiny", cozy and cute.... Lounge on the deck in the loveseat, or down by the river! It is my most popular cottage among the 7 available.
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.
