The Pine Bend Cottage

Royal Stag Properties

A Classic Ausable River Retreat

Pine Bend Cottage is an early 1950s, wide plank knotty pine, tongue and groove cottage. A true classic on the main branch of the AuSable River.

Located on over 2,500 feet of private, secluded frontage, this northern Michigan oasis is the perfect getaway spot for family vacations, fishing/hunting trips or any other special occasion. 

With a porch that overlooks the AuSable River, the views are immaculate. Reaching hundreds of feet, both upstream and downstream thanks to its strategic placement on the inside of a horseshoe-shaped bend. This location is unbeatable.
