AuSable River Canoeing
with Riverside Bed & Breakfast

Borchers AuSable Canoe Livery with Bed & Breakfast is located in the heart of Grayling, Michigan on the beautiful AuSable River.

This website describes our wide variety of AuSable canoe and kayak trips, our riverside Bed & Breakfast, and our "boathouse" shop, featuring AuSable River t-shirts, sweatshirts and other goodies.

While our river trips are seasonal: from early spring to late fall, our Bed & Breakfast is open year 'round. Guests enjoy summer getaways, fall color tourscross country skiing, golf, and fly fishing, among other outdoor recreational opportunities.

Grayling is a central location to explore northern Michigan coast to coast. Make Borchers B&B your home base while you venture on day trips to Traverse City, Mackinaw Island, and all that   has to offer.

Borchers is family owned, operated, and oriented.  It is our priviledge to carry on a family tradition of providing service that will let your family create memories of time spent together.  We welcome the next generation of travellers and paddlers.
