Guest Reviews


The cabin was amazing and worked out great for us will be back again one day

Great location, private, and lot's of room for parking

Our group (11 guys total) rented both the Lodge and the Cabin and both we\'re very clean and well furnished with amenities, cookware and utensils. We would wake up, cook breakfast and hit the snowmobile trails east towards Munising or west towards Marquette. At the end of the day we\'d cook dinner and relax with a cocktail. My only complaint is that the knives needed sharpening and it would have been nice if the the door to the cabins had been shoveled (the parking lot was neatly plowed).

Winter Wonder Land

Total of 9 guys stayed in cabin. The conditions where close to perfect. Minus the bitter cold temps. -18 on our last day. The cabin was just as advertised with all the amenities you would need to make your stay feel like home. The snowmobile trails were right down the street with gas on the way. Plenty of parking available for trucks and trailers. The best part of the stay was the beds. Comfy newer beds made sleeping a joy. I was worried that it only had one shower but it was never an issue. Never ran out of hot water. Thanks for having us and I hope to come back again one day. If I could change one thing it would be to add a hot tub!

Truely Remarkable

My family really enjoyed our stay. Well worth the money. Very clean, enjoyed the open floor plan, Trails are easily accessible from the cabin. Cant wait to go back in February!!!

Great place

We really enjoyed it. Great setting. Kayaking was excellent. The Au Train river doesnt contain any fish so you will have to fish elsewhere. Other than that it was awesome.

Exactly what I was looking for

Needed a great getaway for my buddy\'s bachelor party. Plenty of room for all of us and had plenty to do. Beautiful cabin in a beautiful spot on Au Train river. Kayaked, fished, swam in lake Superior, and had bon fires with the Moon rising over the water. Even caught a glimpse of the Northern Lights. It was an awesome weekend.
