Upper Michigan 200+/- Acre Prime Recreational Parcel and Log Lodge for Sale. This property is located in the most south-western part of Marquette County, in Wells Township, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It is located about two miles north of the historic village of Northland. This little village was founded by the Wolverine Lumber Company and formed around the company's mill and general store. Settled in 1897, it was a location on the Escanaba and Lake Shore Railroad, which carried supplies, explorers, and loggers into the wilderness. The property is surrounded by State of Michigan Land on the north-west, east, and south. There is also access to thousands more acres of State Land less than a mile away for access to hunting, trapping and fishing. Known for some of the best Whitetail deer hunting in the county, hunters will also find Black bear, Grouse, Hare, Woodcock, and Turkey available here. Eight miles to the north up the Ross Grade to Kates Grade is access to Trail No. 32, an east-west Multi-Use Motorized State Trail. Here participants find Foot, Dirt Bike, ATV, and Horseback available in the Summer, and in the Winter the trails are used by Skiers and Snowmobilers. This same trek northward will take you to Forsyth Township's intensively managed walk-in accessible ruffed grouse hunting area (GEMS - Grouse Enhanced Management System). A trail has been developed for those who need easier access, and for those who want a challenge, you can adventure off the trail in search of your grouse in the aspen stands found there. Several creeks in the area flow eastward toward the West Branch of the Escanaba River, and the Ford River lies just a few miles to the south. Most of these creeks and rivers are open for fly fishing and are wadeable, and provide some great Brook trout and Brown trout fishing - and fishing pressure is fairly light here. The property being offered for sale includes a Homestead Style hand-squared Log Cabin that was built in the 1930s. It features a Living/Kitchen area on the first floor, and an 18x24 Loft on the second floor that sleeps about four people. There is a drilled well for water, a Honda 3500 generator for power, a 12x16 wood fired sauna for bathing, and a privy. A 24x36 Pole barn is ready to hold your sporting equipment and vehicles, and there is also a 12x16 log building that houses the generator. The property has a gated access, trail systems, feeders, and ground blinds. There is cell phone coverage at this property. The Grade School is about 6+ miles away, High Schoolers are bussed to Gwinn. Owner will sell the cabin with 80 acres for $112,500 or just 120 acres without the cabin for $60,000. Contact us to schedule your private tour today.
