Snowmobile trip

Warm nice snowmobile stay!!!

Perfect Escape!

We live in Chicago and the UP is one of our favorite destinations to get away from it all. There were four of us in our party and the home was more than adequate for us. The beds were super comfy and the cabin had all the comforts of home. The location right on the river was beautiful and very picturesque. We used the outdoor fire pit on the chilly nights. It was convenient to get to Marquette and Munising where we took the boat trip of the Pictured Rocks. Simply breathtaking! We will definitely be back.

Quaint little cabin, perfect family getaway!

We loved our recent stay at this perfect hideaway! Our family of six had only a couple of days together for a fall break trip and found ourselves perfectly happy on the Au Train River. Although the temperature was chilly, we were able to enjoy the complimentary canoe (even canoed in the light snowfall - gorgeous!), paddle boat and even road the bicycles (our kids loved the tandem bike). The cabin was VERY clean, well accessorized and comfortable like home. Mattresses were the perfect comfort level and we really appreciated all of the fans, since we didnt have enough room to pack ours from home! My only suggestion is that the cookware could be replaced, it has seen a full life. I would also recommend that if you replace the nonstick cookware, a wise investment would be bamboo or nylon tools for using in them, to prolong their lifespan. Having the griddle was a life saver for breakfast meals and having a crock pot available was very sensible! The decor suits the cabin and the beautiful wooded setting perfectly, many details have gone into making your stay a relaxing experience. If we could have stayed longer with our schedules, we certainly would is a lovely location! We were also able to bring our dog and he enjoyed his stay as well. He is not very graceful, so we limited his access to the stairs - LOL! Venturing out locally, we were able to walk the beach at Lake Superior, follow trails to some of the local falls, visit the Pictured Rock overlooks, and dine at one of the local Munising restaurants. Thank you for the excellent hospitality, we will be back!

Great location on river and close to trails for ATV and snowmobiles.

Loved location on river and proximity to ATV and snow mobile trails. Cottage was nice, comfortable and had adequate amenities. Highly recommend.

This was a beautiful cabin! It was clean, cozy, and on a beautiful river.

This cabin was perfect for our girls trip. It was clean, well kept, and on the beautiful AuTrain river. We kayaked, canoed, and enjoyed natures scenery. Was a quick drive away from the Pictured Rocks boat tours and lots of gorgeous hiking trails/water falls. Matt the owner was accommodating, friendly, and answered the phone right away when I called. All of the beds were comfortable as well. Would recommend this to anyone! Thanks for the wonderful trip Matt!
