Overview

About the property

Fully Stocked 4 Bedroom cottage on the River near Lake Superior Beach and Trails

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. 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.

This is the biggest cottage and it easily accommodates up to 8 and also includes extra private property with river frontage adjacent to the garage for your use. The cottage has a full size kitchen and dining room. The living room is equipped with a 46" HDTV with internet streaming and WiFi. Beds include three full size and two twins. The garage has space to store your items during your stay. There is space for parking up to 2 vehicles and the lot next to the cottage has private river access, campfire ring and picnic table for your use. An additional 3 kayaks have also been provided for guests.

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 2009

Why Cory Cole chose Upper Peninsula Michigan

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 has tons of space, has an additional 2 acres of property along the river that is private and offers guests additional opportunities. The cottage 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 cottages and has tons of recreational opportunities.

Great property, beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Easter weekend (Fri-Mon) at Cindy and Steve's cottage and we absolutely LOVED it. Weather wasn't the greatest, but being from WI we're used to that, and well, we didn't let it stop us as we explored the area, saw many waterfalls, the Log run....Bill next door was friendly and we talked with him several times. The cottage had everything we needed, wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back.

Catherine, Jeremy, the kiddos Diego & Eliana, and our pups Oscar & Oliver.

No Queens beds, only full or Dble and no pull out sofa.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice overall with the exception of the beds. Well stocked with what ever is needed for cooking along with plenty of towels and such. We did have fun with the OTHERS living in the house....saw/captured many Orbs on camera. See you next year.

Au Train winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a winter visit. Close to ice caves, waterfalls, snowmobiling and skiing. Well provisioned, warm and cozy (heated garage was a pleasant surprise). Electric corkscrew, well camouflaged in an unexpected cabinet, lead to creative cork removal. Au Train River is very picturesque in the beautiful UP snow.

House was as it appears in the VRBO description

  • 4 of 5

In warmer months, this place would be advantageous in that the river runs directly in front of it which would be great for kayaking or canoeing. It's also a great place if you have lots of people to sleep. Other than that, it was clean but nothing particularly special about it. It's a good 20 minutes or so to Munising and further to Marquette. My wife and I were a bit concerned that three of the house's smoke detectors were laying around without batteries, however, we assumed this was a temporary oversight (albeit a huge risk to the owner).

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We came up for a long weekend and enjoyed every minute. The cabin was just as described and had everything we needed. We are looking forward to renting again!

  • 3 of 5

The house was pretty nice & had a very well-stocked kitchen & bathroom. However, for a house that could sleep 10 people, it was impossible to seat everyone in the kitchen. We also thought there were supposed to be 2 queen beds & 1 full, but all 3 seemed to be full size beds. We enjoyed being right on the river, but wished the fire pit was closer
