AuTrain Island is a true Lake Superior landmark
Au Train Island is a true Lake Superior landmark offering over 2 miles of pristine Lake Superior frontage and 106 acres of forest. The island’s appeal draws from a variety of offerings including natural beauty, location, and availability.
The island is a real stunner! The forest is old growth northern hardwoods and hemlock and offers a variety of habitats including a blue heron rookery and frequent sightings of Bald Eagles, often more than one at a time. Some of the large trees are nearly 10 feet around. Also included in the island’s foliage is the lady’s slipper flower and Canadian Yew ground cover. The dramatic Lake Superior frontage offers rocky beach shorelines, towering cliffs, scenic vistas and sandstone caves, some nestled back into the woods.
Au Train Island is located on Lake Superior in the central part of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. With limited supply of Lake Superior frontage, the island is situated in a truly “superior” location. The closest point of mainland is about 1 mile from the island and the nearest public boat dock is approximately 2 1/2 miles. Pictured Rocks National Lake Shore, the city of Munising, Grand Island National Recreation Area and the city of Marquette are all less than 30 miles from this island. Both Munising and Marquette have full service harbors.
The entire island is still under single ownership. Both local and national conservation groups have shown a significant, and continued, interest in the island. A new owner might consider the strategic placement of a permanent conservation easement, if they choose, that may offer potential tax advantages for them.
Autrain Island is priced at $1,750,000.
