Overview

About the property

Fully Stocked 2 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.

The Robins Nest cottage has been completely updated. The interior is all pine and the layout is spacious. The Kitchen is fully stocked like a typical home. There is a full size bed, and a twin bunk bed along with a pull-out couch for a total sleeping arrangement for up to 6. There is a dining area, and living room to accommodate guests. This cottage is perfect for 2-4 people but can accommodate up to 6.

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 Au Train

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 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 cottage and has tons of recreational opportunities.

Nice location. Enjoyed canoes and beaches close by. River was beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

Overall the cottage was comfortable and clean. Wished there had been 2 full or queen beds rather than bunk and sleeper sofa. Enjoyed the little extras that came with the cottage, coffee, filters, condiments. We couldn't get phone service near cabin--had to drive to Christmas to call. Overall nice experience.

Great location right on the river

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great for our long weekend away with my wife and pup. The cabin was located right on the river in a peaceful little property with several other cabins. The canoe that was include with the rental was perfect to carry down to the river and take for an late afternoon paddle down the river. It was super easy to leave our truck only 1.5miles down the road to pick up our canoe. The cabin has everything you need and more to make for a super enjoyable stay no matter what your level of adventure. We had a great time and would look rent this cabin again the next time we travel with our dog up to the Munising area.

Very nice setting, very clean, and well appointed.

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay here. The cabin was clean, well maintained, and had many items not previously experienced with other cottages I've stayed in. I would highly recommend staying here. This cottage was very affordable.

Very quiet, relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in the U.P. The cabin was very comfortable and met our needs wonderfully. We did have a small "hiccup" with the cabin, talked with Cory and he immediately made it right. He was wonderful to work with and knows about the area. When they say the kitchen is fully stocked-it means fully stocked. All you need is to bring your own food.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
