PARK AVENUE LODGE(Au Train, MI): Sleeps 17-21 MAX, 15 minutes to Pictured Rocks, located on ATV/Snowmobile Trails!  Dog Friendly

Pets Welcome













While Park Ave. in the game of Monopoly screams hoity-toity, we present to you the comfortable, laid-back version of Au Train's Park Avenue. This home is centrally located in a small community, just outside of Munising (Pictured Rocks) with a store & gas station all within an easy stroll from the house. The Au Train Beach dunes are just across M-28, also an easy walk or quick ride.

The ease of getting to the ATV and snowmobile trails with quick access to Trail 417 is ideal. This Au Train area averages 152 inches of snow per year! Bring your active friends and family, yet please be respectful of excessive noise since there are neighbors in close proximity. There is parking for up to 8 cars, with room for 4 trailers.

The Lodge provides a phenomenal space for ease of sleeping, cooking and entertainment. It is well-equipped with your basic meal prep needs. There are plenty of sleeping options within the 6 bedrooms.

On top of it all, the game room can easily keep you entertained with foosball, indoor basketball and even a poker table. Let the fun begin!

Wrap up your day with a relaxing campfire as you share your stories after a day of swimming, riding and/or sledding. Being bored isn't an option here at Park Avenue Lodge!

Let the fun times roll! Connecting with family and friends can feel effervescent. While you may not collect $200 each time you pass Go, the adventure and games here at Park Avenue Lodge surely will surpass your traditional Monopoly experience.

UP Winter Weekedn
We had a wonderful time in the UP and the house was great! There was plenty of room for all of us to eat together and to relax in the living room or game room!


Thanks for taking the time to review your stay, Laura! We're so happy to know you enjoyed your stay, and found the home to be comfortably spaced out for enjoying time together, or in different areas! Hopefully we will get a chance to host you again!

Our second stay
We enjoyed our second stay at this property in AuTrain. We had 3 generations in the house during our stay. Roomy enough for the 12 of us. It is a nice walk to the beach where Au Train River runs into Lake Superior, however the beach access that was open has since been blocked off due to erosion. The convenient stores within walking distance was a nice feature to house location. The location was great driving distance for visiting the area attractions such as Grand Island Tours, Pictured Rocks, Waterfalls etc. Thank you for sharing your property with us.

Amy, we're happy to share the property with you for the 2nd time!  Our returning guests are the best review possible.  Thank you for your feedback, and we hope that 2024 brings you back for a 3rd visit.

Annual Sled Trip
This house can accommodate a lot of people and it is right on the trail. I do think it could use another bathroom, and better water pressure upstairs. The heat upstairs is very weak also. With all of that being said, I would definitely rent this house again.

Craig, thank you for your feedback, and we're glad that you would rent the house again.
