Sherman said….'The Best Chalet in the Area - We have been visiting the Au Sable region since 1968 regularly every year and we have stayed in various lodges but we have never been in a place so beautiful and artfully done and so tastefully decorated. Could not find any faults!”

Peggy said….'This is a dream cabin! This place has been everything one could dream for! The sunrise’s, the view of the river, outside accommodations, and the cozy welcoming cabin – wouldn’t change a single thing – it is perfect! My sister and I will always cherish our time here. You truly have covered all bases. This is a dream cabin. God Willing, I will be back. Thank You!”

Katie said….'We so enjoyed the classic beauty of the setting - Sweeping river views and access are splendid – and the meadow across is a natural delight with a gaggle of goslings, bright orioles and bold blue jays. The gazebo and fire ring are great gathering places – and the cottage a perfect respite of warmth and comfort. Fine fishing, mountain biking and forays for all. Looking forward to our return.”

RJ said….'Beyond Expectations - Five 1977 high school graduates getting together to celebrate 40 plus years of knowing each other and staying in contact. This was a fantastic setting. Great Lodge! An ideal place to share memories and create new ones. We hope to come back. “Beyond Expectations” The kitchen amenities are 1st Class. Absolutely Awesome.”

David said….'This property on the Au Sable is truly unique. Words cannot express how much we enjoyed our time at the Copper Fox Lodge! This property on the Au Sable is truly unique. We enjoyed the river, the fly fishing, and the kayaking was wonderful. Not to mention the wildlife (bald eagles, the fawns across the way, etc.)! For the cabin, we couldn’t have been happier – everything we needed was here – and the layout was perfect for our family. We had a wonderful visit and will cherish our memories of our time at the Copper Fox Lodge.”

Katie said….'This cabin and its views are amazing. Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin. It has been years since we have been to Michigan and staying here has truly been wonderful. The weather was great and I loved watching the geese and birds and the squirrels.”

He even hiked the 500 mile Camino de Santiago across Spain in 2014 and 110 mile Tour du Mont Blanc in the Alps in 2017.

Why Jeff and Beth Turner chose Luzerne

Gorgeous log cabin with upscale furnishings and touches. A cozy stone fireplace. Incredible riverfront views. Towering pine trees. A legendary trout stream teeming with fish. Located in the heart of the Huron National Forest. Close to everything in the AuSable River region. What's not to love. This is an atmosphere most people in this world never get to experience first hand. We love sharing our cabin with others and we love making your stay a vacation to remember!

Guestbook comments from the owner

When arriving at the cabin you instantly feel relaxed! The sights and sounds make you feel like you're a million miles away from the stresses of the real world! The property is absolutely beautiful. It snowed everyday we were there and it was absolutely beautiful. We loved watching the birds, squirrels, and even deer come close to the cabin! Inside is so rustic and cozy! The cabin is incredibly clean and has everything you need! Full kitchen was great, the beds were great and super comfortable, and the fireplace just made you feel so nice and relaxed! My husband and I throughly enjoyed our 4 days at the cabin and look forward to going back again! Owners are wonderful and very quick to respond! Overall, as someone that relies heavily on online reviews I was very pleased with this experience and can't wait to go back again soon!

Perfect....

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a perfect setting and lodge in N. MI.... this is it. Would be great in any season! BTW, I have never written a review before for other places booked through VRBO. This place is that good.

Peaceful - Magical - Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is a true gem, the most welcoming place I've ever stayed in when heading north. I knew it was going to be a great place, and it still exceeded my expectations from the moment I entered! The lights were on, music playing, fireplace going, and a bottle of wine along with fresh-baked banana bread and welcome note awaited me. The cabin is decorated to perfection and by far the cleanest I have ever seen, and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept on. I went thru ten pounds of black sunflower seeds and peanuts, plus a wood pecker suet, all bought in town, and delighted in all of the bird species, Keeping track of what I saw, not to mention all of the different types of squirrels! I saw my first eagles, which was thrilling, along with great white egrets, flying by daily! I will definitely be back to stay at this little piece of heaven again, with my young-adult kids, hopefully late summer when we can try our hand at fishing! This is the perfect place to unplug. Thank you for being so generous and sharing it with visitors!

Beautifull private cabin right on the river!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was absolutely perfect with all kinds of special touches, they did not miss a thing! The outside property was just as nice from the nice wood furniture around the fire pit, very well stocked firewood, very nice wood furniture by the water and at the top of the small hill overlooking the river, the gazebo, and my wife loved taking pictures of all the blue jays, chipmunks, red squirrels etc. that were around the feeder and the yard every day. I looked up the little hill to where my wife was reading a book while I was trout fishing and I said to her this must be what heaven is like!
