Cabin on Lake Superior Sand Beach Property! Located in North eastern Baraga County, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, this property provides access to Year-Round outdoor sports and recreation! This is a unique Lake Superior property - It contains over 28 Acres, with over 324 Feet of frontage. A special quality is its gentle slope, with walk-out access to a sand beach at the water's edge. Launch your kayak, wade, and swim right from shore! You can walk along this picturesque beach, comb for drift wood and "sea glass", and reach the mouth of the Huron River, a mile to the east. Day or night, the views along the shoreline are stunning. At sunrise views begin of the Huron Island National Wildlife Refuge and Lighthouse Island, established to protect migratory birds, specifically nesting colonies of herring gulls. During daylight hours there are views of Point Abbaye across the Huron Bay, fishing boats motoring by with their entourage of gulls - and with binoculars, views of Great Lakes Freighters passing the far side of the islands. Sailboats and jet skis are part of the Big Lake, too! Evening arrives with awesome sunset views. At night you can see car lights in the distance as vehicles travel along the Keweenaw, the beacon of Lighthouse Island, which gleams a few miles away, the stars, and several times a year fascinating magical Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) displays against the dark night skies. Turning earthward, you will love the wooded setting this property has. Huge Eastern White and Red pine, Aspen, Balsam fir, Jack pine, Northern red oak, Paperbirch, and Red maple surround the cabin providing privacy, and a place for avian friends. The property could be called "Eagles Roost" because of the eagles that perch in the mornings in a western lakeside tree. Spring through Fall Hawks, Vireo, Gray Jays, Chickadees, Warblers, Sparrows, Pine Siskin, and Evening Grosbeak live here. Mergansers and loons hunt off-shore and gulls stop by to eat items washed up on shore. Wildflowers and Berry Bushes cover the forest floor. In May "Moccasin Flowers" (Lady Slipper Orchids) bloom and in July Blueberry picking is prolific. The woodland is visited by wildlife, such as White-tail deer, Chipmunks, Porcupine, Pine marten, and Skunk - and even Moose have been seen in the neighborhood. A mile south of the property is the Big Huron River, a Type 4 Fishing River and top Steelhead destination. Brown and Brook Trout and Salmon are available in season. The river's mouth has a sugar sand beach and is in the Copper Country State Forest. The West Branch, a Type 1 Fishing Stream, supports fish year-round, and has great Brook trout! A short drive to Witz Marina provides a place to dock larger lake boats. If you are a hunting enthusiast, the Copper Country State Forest and Corporate CFA Lands are only a mile+ away. Thousands of acres of "walk in" access for hunting, trapping, fishing! Huron Mountain Whitetail deer migrate through this area, and browse in old homestead orchards and fields. Hunters also find hunting of Black bear, Rabbit, and Ruffed grouse. Non-Hunting enthusiasts find lots to do - Eight waterfalls to explore about a half hour away, Old growth forests provide photographic opportunities of Bald eagle, Beaver, Black bear, Bobcat Coyotes, Grouse, Pine martens, Wolves, and an occasional moose - Woods trails provide Fall Color tours, and in Winter they connect to Snowmobile Trail Number 14. The Cabin on the property was built in 1990. It features a 976 Square Foot Open Concept First Floor with a 10x12 Sitting Area with a view of the floor below. An 8x24 Screened Porch provides a great space for outdoor entertainment and listening to the Lake Superior waves. South of the home is a ring of log seats that surround a campfire, for outdoor cooking and relaxing. For toilet facilities there is a Privy. Telephone service is available.
