About Nate Tegtmeyer

We are from Illinois about 90 miles south of Chicago and purchased this home because of our love for the U.P. and the Au Train River and hope that people will enjoy our home as much as we do

Nate Tegtmeyer purchased this house in 2014

Why Nate Tegtmeyer chose Upper Peninsula

The U.P. has always been a place that we have traveled to snowmobile from the West side to the East side. There is something about the little town of Au Train that captured our hearts over the years and just so happened this is where we ended up buying our Riverview home that now we call home and are so anxious to share

What makes this house unique

This beautiful 4 bedroom 2 bath home is in a great little neighborhood on its own 1.5 acres and its backyard is flat to the river for easy access of fishing, canoeing, kayaking. The views from inside the house or from the back deck overlooking the Au Train River and the Hiawatha National forrest are nothing short of spectacular.

Winter getaway - "Doo Family Fun"

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage for a snowmobile getaway week. We must admit we were a little nervous since we too own and operate a Vacation Rental thru VRBO in Lewiston. We have stayed at a few prior and they were NOT exactly what we expected. This Cottage on the other hand was so much like our own- You can tell Nate takes great pride in this home - Everything was exactly like advertised, clean and fully stocked my renters can detect the OCD in me and this Cottage was no different! The location was perfect - within 1 minute from the gas station and 2 minutes from the trail. We will not need to find another rental in the U P as this by far is our favorite location to stay! Thanks Nate for sharing your cottage with us! Vito and Carol

Great Location, Just as Described

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home in mid-July. We had 2 adults and three teenagers (19, 19 and 15 years). The teens took the bedrooms on the second floor and we had the master on the first. What was lovely about that is that everyone had their own space and the teens had the second floor entirely to themselves. They also shared the second bathroom. The home was exactly as described and shown in the photos, no surprises! The family room is very comfortable with plenty of seating for everyone. The kitchen had plenty of room to work in and good seating option. All the kitchen essentials were easily found. What the listing doesn't tell you is that paper products are provided - paper towel, t-paper and soaps - kitchen dish soap and laundry soap too. I think there was even starter soaps in the bathrooms. The home was spotless when we arrived and the yard neat and in order. There is a nice fire pit out back and firewood is provided.

We ate in most nights, but found the Brownstone Inn in Au Train just 2 miles down the road to be a great option. For lunch, or a really casual dinner, hit Johnny dogs in Munising, you won't be disappointed. The Au Train Lake Superior beach is just 6ish blocks from the house, totally walkable depending on how much you are hauling with you to the beach. Plenty of parking is available at the beach.

Marquette is just 30 minutes to the west with the big box stores and nice activity options. Munising was 15 min away to the east and the start of the pictured rocks (A must do! Plan for multiple days if you enjoy hiking). Hiking and waterfalls everywhere you turn. Plenty to do!

Lastly the owner was very easy to work with; very helpful with activities and info on groceries, directions, etc. He checked in with us after we arrived to make sure everything was in order. I would stay here again without question should we return to the area, which is very tempting!
