Au Sable Busted Grouse

Located in the heart of Michigan's most fabled trout water, The Busted Grouse includes two unique buildings with room and character to meet everyone's needs.  The "Cottage" is a mid-century ranch featuring 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and a private sleeping porch overlooking the river.  The "Cabin" is a rustic A-frame with two main floor bedrooms, a large sleeping loft and all the classic character you might imagine in a northern Michigan getaway.  Both buildings are currently undergoing full renovations in preparation for our first renters in 2021.  We're working hard to maintain the classic character of both buildings while adding all the modern upgrades to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay for all.  The property is centered in the famous Au Sable "Holy Water" stretch and is a short walk away from Gate's Au Sable Lodge for excellent dining and a wonderful fly shop for all your gear needs.  

For the 2021 rental season, guests can book the entire property for a week at a time, including both cabins, during the peak summer season.  Outside of that peak season, guests can book either building individually or book them together for a 3 night minimum.  We're happy to save you fees by booking directly but you'll want to check the calendar on VRBO for the peak season and Airbnb for the shoulder seasons.  Or just shoot us an email at and we'll go from there.  Here are the links to see more details and the booking calendar.
