Nice 1 bedroom on AuTrain River w/private waterfront near Lake Superior Beach
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 2009
Why Cory Cole chose Au Train
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... 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 purchased these cottages with the intention of providing people a great place to stay, and the opportunity to enjoy our beautiful area. Overall, if someone doesn't enjoy staying here, it would be a first.
What makes this Cottage unique
It is within 2 minutes of Lake Superior, one of the best beaches in all of Michigan, 15 minutes from Munising and 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 cottages and has tons of recreational opportunities.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Your right at the perfect spot to enjoy. Overall great experience property manager was very attentive to our needs when we arrived.
Great for the priy
This cabin was great for the price. Location was great and area was quite. Close enough to pictured rocks. If we had stayed longer, we would had taken advantage of the kayaking. I would only recommend maybe some new kitchen wear (pots and pans) and a new couch :) would recommend it for a couple.
Dirty, disgusting. Spent 3 hours, on hands and knees cleaning floors. Shower curtain had been cut in half with ragged scissors. TV turned on but no reception. Cramped and no privacy. Bedroom door falling off the hinges. Gas grill didn't work Not really on the river, on the road across from the river. Yes, the front yard is the road right off the porch. Backyard is basically everyone's around you. Totally misrepresented by owner. Left after 2 nights and owner was nasty about our complaints. No refund was offered
Unfortunately, not every guest is as great as the 99%. This guest was looking for a freebie, and I wasn't about to give it to them. They threatened me with bad reviews if I didn't refund them for their stay (which they stayed 3 nights). They booked a week during prime time, (which I require a 7 night minimum during this time). They obviously only wanted a 3 night stay, but that is besides the point. There's really not much I can say about this, it was the 1% experience that you hope you never have to get. They followed through with the threats of a bad review, and shamed this cottage and everything they could think of. I can assure any and all future guests that this review is a misrepresentation of what it is like to stay here. Read the other reviews and gather your own opinion. I own/manage 13 other properties and collectively the reviews will all say about the same things, and that's my places are clean, affordable and I take care of my guests, I give them a personal experience and really do my best. No nothing is perfect, but I do try to make it that way. Unfortunately, you just can't please them all....
Beautiful spot on the Au Train river. The cottage was clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the grill for making our dinners. Easy to put our kayaks in the river right across from the cottage.
I would like to have a thicker curtain in the bedroom as there is a light outside that shines in.
Nice Winter Getaway
I had planned a trip to the AuTrain area to do some hiking and to check out the "frozen" waterfalls in February. The cabin contained everything I needed. It was in a good, central location, close to everything I wanted to do.
Great location to start our adventures from!
The cabin was clean and cozy. Area was quiet. It was a great location to start from and explore other areas.
