Overview

About the property

2.5 bedrooms on AuTrain River w/private waterfront near Lake Superior Beach

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 Mountain Ash Cottage has tons of character. The interior is all pine and the layout is unique. I have done a lot of custom work inside this cottage to bring out that UP feel. The kitchen is fully stocked and seems to be a favorite with the high ceiling and custom tile. There is a dining table w/4 chairs in the living area, which includes a couch, loveseat and 42" HDTV w/cable. This cottage is perfect for 2-5 people but can accommodate up to 7. The main bedroom has a queen, the 2nd bedroom has a double with a twin bunk on top. There is an optional sleeping area in what I call a half bedroom which is a pretty small room that has a cot sized bunk bed. The front porch is great for relaxing while looking at the river and there are outdoor chairs for everyone. DA Loft cottage might be everyone's favorite, but this one books the most, and if you stay here, you will understand why.

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.

I have seen nearly everything in this area and am a great resource during your stay. I will meet with you after you arrive and give you advice about the area and things you can enjoy during your vacation.

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 Upper Peninsula Michigan

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.

Very relaxing and down to earth.

  • 5 of 5

Cory is great, if you're into nature and getting away from it all this place is for you. Everyone in the surrounding area is nice and welcoming. The national parks in the area are well maintained and very informative.

Great place for fishing.

  • 4 of 5

Our cabin was very clean and tidy. There was everything there that we could have wanted. Even coffee (though we brought our own). Cory was very easy to deal with and it went off without a hitch. The cabin we stayed at would be perfect for someone wanting to fish but for an anniversary trip, you might want to stay at one of the newer cabins.

NICE

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I vacationed here. The cabin was clean and well stocked. Nice location along the Autrain River.

The only thing that could be improved is the comfort of the bed.

A wonderful little cottage with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our two dogs stayed in this wonderful little cabin along the shores of the au train river. It is very well situated to all of the activities that we were interested in. Corey was out of town during our stay, but his girlfriend who's name I do not recall did stop by the morning after our arrival. If you are looking for some excellent farm to table cuisine. The River Rock Cafe in Chatham is definately worth the 15 minute drive from the cabin right off of Highway 94. It's proximity to Laughing Whitefish Falls makes for a nice little afternoon. For the money... Absolutely unbeatable.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was exactly what we needed for our UP vacation. Au Train was a short drive to Munising and Marquette. The cabin had everything we needed and then some. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and would be happy to stay there again myself.
