About Michigan

Michigan

Michigan is in the upper Midwest and the heart of the Great Lakes region. It has many attractions, famous landmarks, and scenic state and national parks and forests. In addition to the “great ones”, it has about 12,000 inland lakes, 38 deep-water ports, more miles of coastline than any state but Alaska, and more lighthouses than any other U.S. state. Its agriculture features tourist-friendly fare such as cherries, blueberries, peaches, apples, and wine. And its cities include a major metropolis, some university towns, and countless rustic villages. The state is geographically unique, being comprised of two major peninsulas, and it can be further divided into five distinct areas. They are the Upper Peninsula, (known to Michiganders as "The U.P."), Northern Michigan (Big Rapids and Northwards), Western Michigan (along the sandy coast of Lake Michigan), Central Michigan or "Mid-Michigan" and the Southeast or "Downstate".

The Lower Peninsula has the majority of the population (primarily in the south), while the Upper Peninsula, separated by Lake Michigan and a bit of Lake Huron, is mostly rural. Until 1957, the only way to drive from one to the other was to go all the way around Lake Michigan, or take your car onto a ferry. Michigan's economy was previously dominated by the auto industry, but has diversified somewhat as that and other traditional manufacturing industries have moved their facilities elsewhere, and it's beginning to attract more information technology, life sciences, and high-tech manufacturing jobs. Tourism is a growing segment of the economy, focusing in winter on activities in the snow, and in summer on the State's extensive beaches, lakes, and rivers. Hunting, fishing, and sailing are also popular outdoor activities

5 Acre Lake 41 w / 72 Rec Acres 1123305

Michigamme Township, Marquette County, Michigan


MICHIGAN FIVE-ACRE “LAKE 41” AND CLIMBING TRAIL PROPERTY FOR SALE! This 72 +/- Acre Parcel is located in Michigamme Township, in the west-central part of Marquette County. This area is filled with wilderness adventure opportunities!! The southern 61-Acres of this property has year round access on the southern side of US-41. The lake, of approximately 5 acres in size, is located near the Highway. It is large enough to paddle, and like in the past, could be planted with fish. It is a special scenic spot on a drive between the Village of Michigamme, and the Village of Champion. (Between Mile Markers 99 and 100, and between Green and Brown Roads). Further into the property you will find nice rolling terrain, that is wooded, and has some clearings, and trails. There is a great south facing spot backed by a rocky outcropping that would be a nice building spot for a Cabin. Just north of US-41 are 11-Acres of the property that has a high rocky rise that may be climbed to see scenic views. Rugged, yet extremely accessible, this part of the property would be great for those who love to climb and linger in their own rock outcrops. Additional climbing opportunities exist just to the west, on lands that are part of the Van Riper State Park. This Park has a modern campground and beach at the eastern end of Lake Michigamme, but it also has a rugged area north of the Highway with rugged hiking trails, a river trail along the Peshekee River valley, and a Nature Trail with panels placed here and there describing plants and animals native to the area. Lake Michigamme to the west is a 4,360 acre, seven-mile long, all-sports lake, known for fishing. Nestled on an inlet of the northwest shore is the Village of Michigamme, where you can purchase supplies and fuel. Just a few miles further to the west is Michigan’s wildest and least accessible park, called Craig Lake State Park. Here irregular lakes, where no motors are permitted, provide quiet paddling, and a possible view of resident moose. Also in the area near the property being offered for sale is the 16,850 Acre, McCormick Tract, where three generations of descendants of Cyrus McCormick used the area for vacation retreats. It is part of the Ottawa National Forest. An entrance located on the Peshekee Grade road, leads to 3 miles of the “North Country Trail” which, when completed will be a 4,000 mile National Scenic Trail from New York to North Dakota. Here no trees have been cut for over 100 years, and some 300 year old white pines can be seen scattered between some of the rugged out-crops. The tract is studded with lakes, and the headwaters of four major rivers – the diverse ecological landscape serves as habitat for a variety of mammal and birds. Beaver, Black bear, Fox, Mink, Moose, Otter, Squirrel, Snowshoe hare, Whitetail deer, and Wolves are at home here, and Bald eagle, Loon, and Pileated Woodpecker sightings are common. Back packing and snowshoeing is popular here. This property has year-round access, and power is available at the road side. If you would love to own your “Own Lake” and “Climbing Land” in some of the best recreational areas of the Upper Peninsula, contact us for a tour today!!

Private 9.5 Acre Inland Lake 1122886

Sidnaw, Houghton County, Michigan


PRIVATE MICHIGAN INLAND LAKE FOR SALE! This secluded 47.89-Acre recreational parcel is located in Duncan Township, in the south-eastern part of Houghton County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan - an area that contains thousands of acres of Ottawa National Forest Land, and very few privately owned parcels. The sale property includes the entire 9.56-Acre Barchard Lake! An area rich in history, the nearest Village, Sidnaw was founded in the late 1880s during the logging haydays. The name of the community, "Sidnaw" is a Native American word for a small hill by a creek. Yet today, a section of the Village is called "addition to Hill Creek". Lumbermen, Gunlak Bergland and Thomas Nestor subdivided the Village, and harvested the high quality white pine in the area. The D.S.S. and A. Railroad provided transportation of their top-quality lumber to far away places, and the Village boomed. It is still the center of Henry Ford's hardwood empire. A Civilian Conservation Corps camp built in the area, was later used as a work camp for German POWs during World War II. The well known Main East-West Snowmobile Trail 8/15 goes right through Sidnaw, then heads northward, and runs along the western border of the property offered for sale! Ottawa National Forest Lands adjoin the eastern border of the property, and the north western corner of the property. The Ottawa National Forest - covers 993,010 acres of land in the Upper Peninsula! These lands offer a variety of hunting opportunities ranging from small game to large animals. Black Bear, Canada Goose, Duck and Mergansers, Ruffed Grouse, Whitetail deer, and Woodcock hunting opportunities exist here. A Classic Bungalow style (a less formal cousin of Craftsman and Prairie styles) Cabin overlooking the lake, was built years, and years ago by a local Notable. It will need lots of work to bring it back to it's original early 20th Century Charm. Making the most of the homes square footage, the house features an open central Living/Dining Room, no hallways, and Bed rooms, and Bath room arranged along each side. The rooms have tall, multi-paned windows. The Living Room has a unique arch shaped ceiling, and a natural stone fireplace. A set of french-style doors lead to an enclosed Porch, on the lake side of the home, that has lots of windows that provide natural light and views of the lake below. Off of the enclosed Porch is an exterior open wood raised deck. The Kitchen and Bath will need new plumbing. Updated electrical service will be needed throughout. The exterior of the cabin has wood and cedar shake siding. The roof will need to be replaced. A metal Pole Building on the property has been damaged by weather/snowload, and will need work. If you are seeking a private woodland Get-A-Way, with your own private lake, contact us today! Property is being sold "As Is", "Where Is".
