280 Acre Upper Michigan Parcel with Cabin and Private Lake! This Mountain Hideaway is located in L'Anse Township in east-central Baraga County, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The property is located just east of Mount Curwood, which is part of the Huron Mountains range, and is the second highest point in the State of Michigan. Mt. Curwood was named in honor of Michigan author James Oliver "Jim" Curwood, an American action-adventure writer and conservationist who owned a camp in this remote area near the Huron Mountains. This mountain was long designated as Michigan's highest point until a
resurvey in 1982 with modern technology determined that nearby Mount Arvon is actually 1,979 feet high - one foot taller than 1,978 foot high Mount Curwood. On the eastern slope of this mountain is where the headwaters of the Peshekee River begin. Located on the property is a 400+/- foot earthen dam which collects waters of the Peshekee, and creates a 10+/- acre, 20 to 25 foot deep, lake in front of the cabin. You can fish for Chubs and Trout, or watch Black Bear, Beaver, Moose, Pine martin, Whitetail deer, and all kinds of waterfowl as they visit the lake. Further to the east of the property, the 31.1 mile-long Peshekee River widens out and has beautiful nature scenery along its banks. The water flowing gracefully down the river attracts people from near and far. In the foothills of the Huron Mountains, the copper-hued water of this wilderness river flows past towering pines and tangles with rock cuts, boulders, and gravel beds. The Peshekee is rated a Class I-III rafting and kayaking river by the American Whitewater Association. This river supports many fish species, and is a highly regarded Brook trout river. It is a tributary of Lake Michigamme, and its waters flow via the Michigamme River and the Menominee River to Lake Michigan. There are 5-6 miles of good trail system and 3 enclosed blinds located on this parcel. But if you prefer to hunt, trap and fish off of your private property, you will be able to have walk-in access from the parcel to thousands of acres of adjacent Corporate CFA Lands! The 1,411 Square Foot Cabin has a Modern Design with Tongue and Grove knotty pine, lodge look fixtures, antler chandeliers, carpeting and ceramic tile flooring.
