About David Berg

4th generation Yooper with a love of the Hiawatha National Forest and the surrounding outdoors. I spend as much time possible exploring out my back door and find new and wonderful places every year. The Au Train River is one of the places we always take company for a relaxing paddle. It's a great summer tradition.

David Berg purchased this cottage in 2014

Why David Berg chose Au Train

I live close by on Lake Superior and chose to purchase a rental property in Au Train because it is centrally located to many excellent outdoor activities and provides a serene experience with a touch of the old resort area feel.

What makes this cottage unique

The river is at your doorstep and Au Train Lake and Lake Superior are only a mile away. Lake Superior is not popular for swimming since it is so cold, but the beach in Au Train is a very popular swimming area. When my dad was a kid in the 1930's he would hitch rides with his friends, standing on the car's running boards, to get to this favorite beach. This area also provides great paddling opportunities in the bay, river, or dozens of nearby inland lakes. Of course the big draws are pictured rocks and grand island, but there are so many things to do in any direction. Great hiking and biking (Marquette and Munising have many miles of great mountain biking trails), boating, fishing, birding, sightseeing, and in the winter skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. Never get tired of adventure here. On the other hand, it's also a great place to kick up your feet and relax.

Incredibly relaxing, breathtaking views. House is super homey. Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect - it's located right near a bend in the river, giving the back porch the most immaculate views (at any time of day... just wow). Kayaks are clean and in good shape, life vests are provided, and the river is docile. Inside, the house feels just like home. You can literally see all 3 doors to the house from the master bed, and everything you can possibly need is provided for you. I can't express how impressed my boyfriend and I both were with this home, and its location. Really the perfect spot, and the owner seems like the man. That was our phrase throughout our entire stay. "Do you think there's toothpicks?" "Of course, Dave's the man." And sure enough, toothpicks, there were. Wow is the only word I can go out on. Wow!

Quiet well kept cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was not what I expected. It is was larger than I thought and the view was great. It was quiet and peaceful. the house was very well kept and very clean. It was not far from any of the things we wanted to do.

Northwoods Dream

  • 5 of 5

This was, without a doubt, one of the best places we have ever stayed. If you are looking for a place that provides peace in a beautiful and natural setting ... this is the place for you. The cabin had everything we needed, was clean and comfortable, and also very pleasing to the eye. The deck and small yard provided great views of the river and both were areas to sit comfortably while relaxing. We were able to rent a canoe just down the road and enjoyed the canoe trip immensely. I would definitely stay again and would recommend this cabin to anyone who is looking for a place to relax in nature.
