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

These falls stream into The Big Garlic River which is a 14 mile long river feeding Lake Superior. If you are looking to entertain guests this property also offers an additional building with a private deck located near the main cabin.

Republic, Marquette County, Michigan


MICHIGAN INLAND LAKE CABIN/HOME FOR SALE!! This beautiful 1.51-Acre waterfront property has 115+/- Feet of frontage on Horseshoe Lake which is in Republic Township in southwestern Marquette County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The nearest village is Witch Lake. Horseshoe Lake is a 123-Acre spring fed, quiet lake, that is about 24-Feet Deep. Most of the lake is shallower, and there are many points, bays, and narrows to provide structure. You can canoe, kayak, swim and fish right from the front yard -- Also view stunning sunsets! Most lakes in Michigan, Horseshoe Lake could be described as a kettle lake, and the term "kettle lake" describes the way the lake basin was formed. Kettle lake basins were formed as the glaciers receded. While this was happening, a block of ice broke off the glacier, and just sat there. As the glacier continued to melt, the debris from the glacier (soil, rocks, stones, gravel, etc.) filled in around the block of ice. When the blocks finally melted, bowl-shaped holes, called kettles, were created. All the debris surrounding it fell into the hole, and then filled with water, and became a lake as we know it. Horseshoe Lake features excellent fishing for smallmouth bass and perch, as well as crappie, and blue gill. There is a State owned public access site on the western shore. It has a gravel ramp, and parking for eight vehicles. Just across the road at the south end of the property is Island Lake - This pretty lake is approximately 25-30 acres in size, and has a maximum depth of about 40 feet.
