About 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

Lot 31 Beautiful Fence Lake 1126840

Republic, Baraga County, Michigan

MICHIGAN WATERFRONT PARCEL ON INLAND LAKE FOR SALE - This 6.39 Acre parcel has 346 feet of frontage on beautiful 310-Acre Fence Lake, which is located in south-eastern Baraga County. Teddy Roosevelt was so inspired by the area in and around Fence Lake that he made it a regular destination point; seeking solitude among the towering white pines and angling in its bountiful waters. The spring-fed lake has crystal clear water and depths, over 50-feet in places, that support Rainbow and Brown trout, Yellow perch and trophy sized Smallmouth bass. A river flows into the lake in the north-east, and the water exits the lake into Fence River which is located on the south-west side of the lake. There is over 22,000 feet of shoreline to troll along, and this parcel is located on a wonderful bay which has some of the warmest swimming water on the lake. Four islands are owned in common by the property owners. Studies have shown that this lake is one of the most pristine lakes in Michigan. It has had minimal human impact over the years. There is no public access, and only 46 parcels were created on this lake. Only about ten homes have been built on the lake to date. Wildlife includes moose, wolves, bear, deer, loons, eagles, and numerous woodland birds. The road to the lake is maintained year round and there is a private, electronically controlled gate at the main entrance to the development.

Torch Bay Treasue 1126703

Torch Lake Township, Houghton County, Michigan

1.05 +/- ACRE PARCEL WITH 265+/- FEET OF PORTAGE LAKE FRONTAGE FOR SALE! This waterfront parcel is located on Torch Bay, on the Keweenaw Peninsula, which juts out into Lake Superior from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The property is located on the south-eastern side of a kidney-shaped peninsula accessible through the village of Dollar Bay. Portage and Torch lakes wrap around it, defining its boundaries. This land mass is covered in new growth maple and birch forest, with some larger pines scattered through the area. To the north is the 2,700 Acre, 6-Mile long, 125-Foot deep Torch Lake. Torch Bay wraps around the eastern side of the peninsula, and connects Torch Lake with Portage Lake. Portage Lake has a surface area of 9,640 Acres, and a maximum depth of 50-Feet. Portage is connected to the portage built by the army corps of engineers to create a short cut for marine traffic between Lake Superior on the western side of the Keweenaw Peninsula, to the Lake Superior Keweenaw Bay on its eastern side. This 22-mile waterway was completed in 1874 and allowed expansion of copper mining through shipping. Today The Portage-Torch Lake Chain, (also known as the Keweenaw Waterway) system of lakes and channels of just over 13,200 acres and still provides for shipping, and ever growing tourism opportunities! Anglers reel in 37 different species including walleye, pike, perch, bass (large and smallmouth), four kinds of suckers, eight kinds of minnows, two kinds of bullhead, two kinds of whitefish, two kinds of lamprey, brown, brook, and rainbow trout, Coho salmon, rock bass, sunfish, bluegill, crappie, burbot, carp, smelt, alewife, ruffe, and lake sturgeon. Sightings of sail boats, canoes, kayaks, and other water craft are common in the summer, and in the winter this system provides some excellent snowmobiling. The shoreline of this bay is lined by the quaint unincorporated settlements of Dreamland, Point Mills and Senter - and in some areas the wooded hills along this bay soar as high as 200 feet in height. These little towns are full of history! By the 1880s French-Canadian lumberjacks were working the native forests of the peninsula from a small settlement (Montreal) east of present-day Dollar Bay. The area became linked to the region’s mining industry at the turn of the century when two mining companies established stamp mills on Grosse Pointe, on Torch Bay, at the southwestern-most area of the peninsula. Ore was shipped to both mills via a spur line of a railroad. An overland road provided access to a hillside site called Point Mills. Here dwellings were provided for workers and families. This village grew to contain several stores, two saloons, a hotel, livery, post office, and a school. Today the unincorporated village of Point Mills has approximately a dozen homes. Southeast of the village, the Arcadian and Centennial Mill encompasses a vast area. It began operation in 1899 and shut down in 1920. At one time the Copper Range Railroad provided service into the area, and provided access to the small industrial village of Senter. The Atlas Powder Company opened a company there in 1910, where explosives were created and stored. The tracks were removed and many company buildings were demolished in 1960. Five houses now exist on Senter Location Road, the only road in the village. Today Senter Road leads to new shoreline recreational properties built in the post-World War II period in a subdivision along East and North Grosse Pointe Shores. The property that is being offered for sale is part of a surveyed lot located in this subdivision, and has 193+/- Feet of Frontage on Portage Lake. The property is fully wooded with Spruce and Cedar trees, and has very gradual slope to the shoreline. There is power and telephone available at the road side.
