Fully Stocked 2 Bedroom cottage on the River near Lake Superior Beach and Trails
About Cory Cole
Plain and simply, I am a Yooper. I live locally year round and am a wealth of knowledge when it comes to exploring our area. I graduated high school and college here and I am an avid outdoors-man, I camp, hike, bike, kayak, ski, snowshoe, ATV, motorcycle, snowmobile and Jeep nearly the entire U.P. and if you have heard of it, chances are I've been there, or done that. I also know some places 'slightly off the radar' if you are looking to get away from the tourist areas. Just ask, I'll be happy to give you advice.
Cory Cole purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Cory Cole chose Au Train
I manage this property for my friends Cindy and Steve, they updated this property in 2014 and continue to maintain it. It is perfectly set up for large family's and groups. This cottage is part of a private association with it's own river frontage. The property is the best on the river, it has a beautiful view, clean water with sandy bottom and plenty of space to relax. There are 10 cottages on this property (it was an old resort) I own/manage 7 of them for vacation rentals. I was a transplant to this area during high school years ago and left then came back. I couldn't stay away forever, this area is unlike any other. Sure there are beautiful places all over the country, but no matter where you are from, this place is special beyond words...Overall, if someone doesn't enjoy staying here, it would be a first.
What makes this Cottage unique
It is within minutes of Lake Superior, one of the best beaches in all of Michigan, the Pictured Rocks, dozens of waterfalls, hundreds of miles of hiking trails, biking trails and ATV/snowmobiling trails. (all available right from the cottage doorstep) AuTrain lake is accessible by boat right from the cottage and has tons of recreational opportunities.

Location was great! Loved having a fire pit out front. Drama between the owner and property manager made check-in annoying. The owner didn’t know we were coming and had their personal belongings in the cottage and were planing to stay that night.
Family fun vacation
Pictures gave us an idea we had a bigger lot and it was not big at all, thought we would be able to play catch with our pup but we were so close to the other cabins there was no way we could. Cabin was well maintained. It had all the amenities great location near Munising. Although the pictures were deceiving it served its purpose allowing pets and in close proximity of everything we needed. We would stay again.
Relax, Rest, Recover
Our stay was relaxing and we recovered from our fast past hard working lives. Weather was fantastic! We did many recreational fun things. Ate too much and slept in every day. Peaceful and quite. The only problem that I had was the website said it slept six . I thought it was deceiving. There were only three of us, until the last two nights and my niece and husband came up thinking there was a sleeper sofa, and they went to open it up and there was no bed . The cottage did not sleep six. It was a big disappointment. I felt the price I paid there should have been room for six.
Thank you for your review, I apologize that I did not change the listing to reflect the sleeper sofa was not there anymore. However, the cottage does still sleep 6 in beds. There are 3 full size beds which sleep 2 adults each.
Everything we needed.
The cabin is quiet and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked and the pantry even has many spices and staple items available. We stayed for 2 nights during a snowy period in April so we appreciated the cozy flannel sheets. Plenty of linens available; lots of towels and extra blankets. The cabin is close to the river, a short drive to the town of Au Train, and a bit farther to Munising and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. This is a great place to stay to enjoy the beautiful outdoors.
Cute Cabin with Great View
The cabin was very cute! Love the view of the river. Kitchen had great amenities and we loved how open and quaint the whole place was.
Quick response to any call! Super nice people. Access to the river and fishing on a beautiful lake.
Typical cabin. Very clean with functioning WiFi. A plus up north where reception is spotty. Easy drive to Munising.
