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

Twinflower, many orchids, plants of rock outcroppings and wet forest are found here. The nearest town to the west is Eagle Harbor, a quaint Lake Superior harbor town. It was once a Copper Mining boom town in the early history of the Upper Peninsula. Because there were no roads into this area everything was shipped there by boat. Supplies, settlers, and prospectors came in by boat and copper was shipped out from the Eagle Harbor, Central, Delaware, Copper Falls and other mines. You can watch the "Lakers" (Great Lakes freighters) and "Salties" (ocean going foreign ships) as they pass by upbound to Duluth or Canadian ports, or downbound to Sault Ste. Marie, and the other Great Lakes. This area is a great place for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling on hundreds of miles of groomed trails through hilly terrain. Just minutes from the property along the two-lane road that hugs the lake are Agate Beach, Esrey Roadside Park, and Keweenaw Shore Nature Sanctuary.

The 25+ Acre parcel being offered for sale features slabs of conglomerate rock and huge basalt boulders along 1,121 feet of undeveloped shoreline on Lake Superior.

Lake Linden, Houghton County, Michigan


Upper Michigan Home / Cabin on Big Traverse River for Sale! This 1,500+/- Square Foot Chalet Style Cabin is built on a 2.1-Acre wooded property with 600+/- feet of river frontage that is located in Schoolcraft Township, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Traverse River is an 11.9-mile-long river that flows into Lake Superior along the eastern side of the Keweenaw Peninsula, which juts far out into pristine Lake Superior. The property can be found about 4+ miles south of the unincorporated community of Gay, and is within the community of Big (or Grand) Traverse Bay. Big Traverse Bay is a small Finnish fishing community located on a peninsula and adjacent mainland at the mouth of the Traverse River on Lake Superior. The site on which the Big Traverse Bay Historic District stands at the mouth of the Traverse River. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was designated a Michigan State Historic Site in 1975. The site was originally a logging camp owned by the Hebard Lumber Company, dating from the last two decades of the 19th century. Many Finnish emigres moved into the area, working in the lumber, mining, or fishing industries. Finnish fishermen maintained several fishing outposts on the shores of Lake Superior. These Commercial Fishermen fished along the shores of the Keweenaw Bay,and sometimes headed out into Lake Superior as far as the Huron Islands in the southeast, Manitou Island at the tip of the Keweenaw, "Kaukapakki" - located northeast of the Keweenaw in the middle of Lake Superior somewhere near to the Canadian border, and to Isle Royale. By 1920, Big Traverse Bay developed into one of these fishing communities. In the 1950s a breakwall was built. Today the community remains an active fishing village - Vintage gasoline pumps, net reels, cedar shake-covered fishing buildings, ice houses and saunas are still in use. The beaches going north along this side of the Keweenaw Peninsula are all sand dunes, and there are picturesque spots that can be visited. Big Traverse Bay is often referred to as 'The Waikiki Beach of the Keweenaw Peninsula,' because of its white sand beach that is more than 100 feet deep, and more than three miles long. From the home's location you have access to some of the most scenic natural and historic areas of the State, that provide activites to enjoy during every season of the year! There are nice blueberry patches in the area, and the Schoolcraft Township Mink Farm Day Park is a great beach park that is right next to the lighthouse.

Bohemia Ski Hill which offers 900 feet of vertical extreme back country skiing and snowboarding, Copper Harbor, Brockway Mountain, and then follow the western side of the Keweenaw Peninsula down to Agate Harbor, Eagle Harbor, Great Sand Bay, Eagle River, and return via Mohawk-Gay Road back to the Village of Gay. If you are a nature lover, there is lots of wildlife in the area with sightings of bald eagles, sand hill cranes, beaver, geese, ducks, and deer very common. The parcel is minutes away from thousands of acres of corporate CFA land and Copper County State Forest Land for walk-in access for hunting and trapping.

The property being offered for sale features 600+/- feet of the Big Traverse Bay River which flows into Lake Superior. The river meanders along the edge of the property and is about 4-Feet Deep - deep enough for larger boats to dock at the property, and then go out into the "Big Waters." Anglers head out to Buffalo Reef in Big Traverse Bay, one of the most productive spawning regions for lake trout and lake whitefish in the area, producing 8 percent of the fish in the Keweenaw Bay. For bigger boats, the nearby Big Traverse Bay Marina offers boat launching, day use dockage, and long-term parking. You can also launch your canoes and kayaks from the front yard!
