Sherman said….'The Best Chalet in the Area - We have been visiting the Ausable 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.”

Nancy said….'Gorgeous! Beautiful appointments, tastefully done, Just right, Perfect!”

Why Jeff and Beth Turner chose Northern Michigan

In 2009, my son and I fished 50 Trophy Waters in 50 States in 50 Days. Upon researching the legendary waters of Michigan I found the AuSable to stand apart in many many ways. When we fished/floated the AuSable for the first time I knew that a cabin on the river was in our future. After several years of searching we discovered what is now our Copper Fox Lodge. Its uniqueness, setting, and beauty can only be appreciated in person.

Such a lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

Jeff and Beth and Shar are as nice as can be. The cabin itself is just beautiful - as charming as the pictures online show it to be. And then there is the river....when you see the view - it will take your breath away! It is a wonderful place for quiet time alone (as my trip ended up unexpectedly being), a romantic getaway, or a family trip. I will definitely go back. Thank you Jeff, Beth & Shar for a lovely stay at the Copper Fox!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Northern paradise at Copper Fox Lodge!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannnot express what an amazing time we had at the Copper Fox Lodge!! From the minute we booked the trip, Jeff and Beth had immediately emailed us welcoming our arrival. They were full of details regarding the cabin and all the activities in and around town. When we arrived it took us about half an hour just to pick our jaws up from the floor at such a welcoming and warm atmosphere. We were greeted with beautiful music playing, a bottle of wine and a very nice note from the Copper Fox family welcoming us for our stay. The lodge was so much more than we even expected and the pictures are just a tease of the magical and serene place Jeff and Beth have to offer!! It is immaculate and decorated so warm and cozy!! The Christmas decorations are such a nice touch and really made us feel at home and that they truly cared and put thought into their guests stay. We woke up on the last day there to find 10 inches of snow and Jeff was right on the phone making sure we made it out safely. Thanks also to one of the caretakers ... Rob who plowed a path and saw also that we made it out safely. This place is beautiful .. The view of the river right out of the dining room windows while we ate was breathtaking .. And the many different birds we saw at the bird feeders and the wildlife was breathtaking!! If there is anything you forget to bring .. Don't even worry about it because Jeff had it there!! So much attention to detail to make your stay more than you could even imagine! We were sad to leave ... But so happy in knowing we found this place!! KUDOS TO JEFF!! Thanks for the memories and look for us to be back very soon!!

Just delightful!

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to write this review because it will only make it more difficult for me to book this wonderful lodge.

The setting on the banks of the Au Sable River is beautiful and tranquil. The owners, Jeff and Beth, provide every amenity possible for a pleasant stay. The lodge is tastefully decorated and very welcoming. The kitchen is very well equipped and will keep even the fussiest cook happy. The lodge is very clean and well maintained.

If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing getaway, look no further. You won't be disappointed!

Copper Fox Lodge is a dream vacation destination!

  • 5 of 5

Copper Fox Lodge is just like a dream. It's such a wonderful place! A great cabin on the famed Au Sable River in Michigan with a fantastic view! We over packed the first time we stayed there, we didn't realize the cabin would be so well stocked! Pans, cooking utensils, dishes, linens and towels are all already there for you. The owners are such kind and thoughtful people and they have a very helpful and sweet local caretaker as well. We have had such peaceful vacations there. There is an assortment of wildlife who come to visit (wood peckers, wild turkeys, finches, deer and a variety of squirrels and chipmunks). There are plenty of surrounding things to do or not if you just want to stay at the cabin and enjoy being there and relaxing. My husband fly fishes right out front in the river and also goes up and down the river to other nearby locations [those have to remain secret! ;) ]. We stock up at the local grocery store for the week and cook most meals in the cabin and just go out for a few lovely dinners at nearby restaurants. The cabin is very comfortable and has satellite TV and a DVD player for your entertainment. The beds are also very comfortable. The owners have thought of every possible detail! Their taste is spectacular as the cabin is decorated so well! We have already scheduled next year's vacation there again! We just can't resist and keep going back! Each time is even more enjoyable! It's a don't miss place!

Hidden Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Words can not express the beauty of this hidden paradise! Me and three girlfriends booked Cooper Fox for our 1st Annual Girls Weekend and we were not disappointed one bit. This place is very well maintained and very clean. Had everything and anything you could imagine already there. Jeff and his wife Beth very very quick to respond to any questions I had preparing for this trip. Even though I don't know the two of them I feel as though I rented this cottage from a life long friend. I highly recommend staying here winter, spring, summer, or fall. The scenery is breathtaking and the cottage itself was immaculate. Thank you Copper Fox for an experience we will never forgot. Plans are in the works for next years girls getaway!!!
