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

While our AuSable 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, fly fishing, and the many other outdoor recreational opportunities offered in northern Michigan.

Grayling Michigan is a central location to explore the Northern Mitten 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 to the beautiful AuSable River and Grayling, Michigan.

  • End of Season 2015
    Thank you to all of the guests and our great staff. You made our canoe season successful! With the weather forecast, we have decided to put our paddle equipment away for the year and start planning for Canoe Season 2016. Reservations already made through October 17 will be honored. Our B&B will continue to be open by reservation through the end of the year and we are looking forward to seeing new and familiar faces during cross country ski season in 2016!
