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

"Traditional Log Hunting Cabin" This 80 acres with a log cabin is adjacent to thousands of acres of corporate timber land which is open to hunting. The traditional old-style log cabin (built in 1992) with beautiful hardwood floors, has an open concept kitchen, dining, and living area, and sleeping area with built-in bunkbeds on the main floor. More sleeping space is available in the loft and accessed with pull-down steps. Propane tanks provide fuel to run the gas lights, refrigerator, and the combination propane/wood cooking range. A wood heating stove is the main heat source and keeps the cabin toasty warm on cold days, and the propane wall heater is all you need to take the chill out on cool days. The shed has plenty of room for lawn maintenance items, ATV's, and other outdoor toys. The parcel is a mixture of upland and lowlands with Barnes Creek transecting the northwest corner. The cabin is close to the southern line of the property. Fine aspen regeneration abounds, promising future timber revenue. Good fishing is available via short drives to the Net River, Paint River (lower reaches are warmwater fisheries with pike, bass, and walleye; upper reaches have trout), and nearby local lakes such as Fire Lake, Way Dam, and Net River Flooding have warm water fisheries. Hunting for deer, bear, grouse, woodcock, snowshoe hare, and waterfowl is very good on this 80 acres and surrounding property. This area is a great place for viewing wildlife mentioned above and there is a very good chance of also seeing eagles or moose at the cabin, or when you are out and about. Snowmobile trails are nearby and your 80 acres is a great place in addition to make your own cross country ski and snowshoe trails. ORV riding is popular in the area and you can find many places to ride in addition to the old logging roads on the property. Use your camp as a home base for color touring in the fall, or to explore lighthouses or the many waterfalls in the western Upper Peninsula.

Perronville, Menominee County, Michigan


40-ACRE MICHIGAN WOODED RECREATIONAL PARCEL FOR SALE! This property is located in Harris Township, in north-eastern Menominee County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Menominee County has a rich farming heritage. Early farm records date from the 1850s. In the 1920s, it was the most important industry in the county, and farming continues today. Hay, corn, barley and oats are the leading field crops. Weather and soil conditions are especially conducive to dairy farming. Menominee County was Michigan’s 16th leading milk producer in 2007 and is referred to as the “Dairy Capital of the Upper Peninsula (U.P.) of Michigan”. Harris Township extends 24 miles north-south and is generally 6 miles wide. Highways US-2/41 and M-69 are the major roadways. Dairying and the Island Resort and Casino, an enterprise of the Hannahville Indian Community that opened in 1998, are the major commercial activities today. The 40-Acre Parcel has frontage on year-round accessible Highway M-69, and on a side road, Shiversky Road. The nearest town to the north is LaBranch, about three miles away. Labranche was a station on the Metropolitan branch of the Chicago and North Western Railroad which served to get the Upper Peninsula’s vast lumber resources to larger markets. This Village along with other small town communities serving the lumber, mill, and rail industries popped up along this railway. The Village formed in 1882, and was named after the pioneer settler Israel Labranche. The village at one time had a saw and shingle mill, general store, saloon and post office. The railroad branch that went through La Branche was decommissioned in about 1970. Today, a well preserved school house along Highway 69 remains from its heyday. It is now the township hall and serves as a social center for community events. The Labranche Tavern is located about a ½ mile up Highway 69 from the schoolhouse. It is a popular establishment visited by locals and tourists. The tavern is next to a historic home. Less than three miles to the south of the property is the Village of Whitney. Very few signs of the former community remain today - but in the 1800s this settlement once included charcoal kilns, a general store, post office and a hotel, and was named for land surveyor Charles Whitney. A 1911 Map of Memominee County shows that the parcel offered for sale, was located in Dryad, which is a Greek word for "oak tree". Every tree, as mythology proposes, is thought to house spirits, or lesser deities known as nymphs, within them. They uniquely exist to watch over and care for the tree they are born with. Dryads are always female and usually inhabit oak, although they can also be found within ash, pine, poplar, apple and laurel trees. It will be interesting if more details can be found about this. Menominee County is Game-Rich! It is know for a high concentration of whitetail deer, black bear, turkey, pheasant, and waterfowl. There are thousands of acres of State Public Access Hunting Lands and Corporate CFA Lands near the property. If you are seeking an affordable recreational parcel contact us today!
