Seacoast Cottage on Lake Superior is a 2-bedroom smoke-free vacation home in the Hiawatha National Forest, 3.5 miles west of Au Train and only 13 miles west of Munising in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Seacoast Cottage is a quiet retreat for those who want to relax by the water and enjoy the beauty of the north woods. To keep this peaceful atmosphere, we do not permit snowmobiles.
This beautiful A-frame home has an open living area and kitchen with wood decor. There are 2 bedrooms and a bath on the main floor and a loft upstairs. Sleeps up to 4 guests.
The large living area offers a satellite color TV, VCR, and a CD stereo player. The front of this living area features a heated glass room which provides outstanding views of Lake Superior without leaving the comfort of the cottage. A wonderful place for watching the sunrise as you enjoy your favorite morning beverage and watching the sun set at night. The glass goes over the top of the room so you will get a magnificent view of the night sky and, if it's the right night, the northern lights out over the water.
A large deck surrounds the glass room for those warm days and evenings. There is a gas grill on the deck for cooking up a tasty barbecue and patio furniture with a table and chairs for outdoor meals or just relaxing and enjoying the spectacular view. Wood steps lead the few feet down to the lakeshore.
The fully equipped kitchen includes an electric stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, dishes, pots and pans, water purifier, and garbage disposal.
There are two bedrooms on the main floor and a bath with a shower. The master bedroom contains a queen sized bed, dresser, and a closet. The second bedroom has a large window with a wonderful view of the lake and is furnished with a double futon and a shelf for clothing. There is a loft with two double futons that overlooks the living area. All linens are provided.
Seacoast Cottage is convenient to all the wonderful attractions and recreational opportunities the AuTrain and Munising area has to offer. The Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore offers long and short trails for hikes through the woods or along the shoreline. The area has many waterfalls that are a joy to see. Waterfall maps and maps of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore can be picked up at the Visitor Center at the blinking light in Munising.
The Hiawatha National Forest offers hiking and mountain bike trails just a few miles south of AuTrain and you will find the Songbird Trail at the Au Train Lake Campground. You can pick up the tape player and bird book at the AuTrain grocery or the Visitor Center so you will learn the birds by listening to their song.
Fishing is great at the many nearby lakes or you can enjoy Charter Fishing on Lake Superior. Beautiful Lake Superior sand beach in Au Train for sunning or swimming.
Fall color is outstanding along Lake Superior and in the Pictured Rocks and Hiawatha National Forest. This area is truly a photographers dream with an outstanding shot around every corner all seasons of the year The frozen waterfalls and ice caves present opportunities for some very unusual photos.
There are several groomed cross country ski trails nearby and a lighted ski trail in Christmas for skiing under the stars. Try some snowshoes and head out on an unplowed road in the woods and enjoy the quiet of the northwoods. For an adventure, Superior Dog Sleds in nearby Chatham offers exciting dogsled rides through the forest.
