About the Property

One Bedroom Cottage, Bungalow Style, With Access To A Day House On Lake Superior

We'd love to have you as our guests to enjoy our cottage. It is fully equipped with modern amenities, patio with deck furniture and a firepit for guest use. Proximity to Munising and Marquette makes it a great location to explore the area, Pictured Rocks and more! Take a walk on a short path to the shore of Lake Superior, where you can enjoy your own private day house to read, relax, watch the fishing boats at sunrise, and maybe spot an eagle nearby.

Owner info

About the owner: My husband and I were both born in Munising and I grew up there, he in Lower Michigan. He moved back in 1974 and we raised our three children here in the UP. We currently live across the street from the cottage and will be available for any assistance or information you might need. We love to travel and enjoy meeting new people. We rented our current home as a seasonal rental for 25 years, so we know what our guests want in a rental. We have a lot of repeat guests who come back year after year to enjoy Shelter Bay and the surrounding area. We are confident that you will love it too!

Why the Owner Chose Au Train, MI, USA:
My grandfather initially owned the property where we currently live, and it was eventually passed down to me. Shelter Bay has always held a special place in my heart and I consider it my little piece of heaven on earth. We acquired the property where the cottage that we now rent to guests is, because we hope to leave it to our children someday. In the meantime, we want others to enjoy Shelter Bay as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
My husband built the cottage and we have taken very good care of it over the years. We lived in it for 6 years giving it our own personal touches. The cottage is very tastefully decorated to make you feel comfortable and relaxed. The best feature is the day house for your use, which is just across the street and down a short wooded path to the lakeshore. There you can sit either inside, or out on the deck with a magnificent Lake Supeior view. It has comfortable furniture, and a small dining room table to enjoy your dinner. Open the windows with the screens and feel the lake breeze while inside. It's a perfect spot anytime of day or night!
