Log Cabin on 120-Acre Wooded Highland property in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This property is located in Baraga County's Arvon Township, at the western edge of the Huron Mountains. This 1,000 Square Mile mountain range is the largest range of mountains in Michigan. They are the rugged remnants of much higher peaks, composed of rocks dating back to the Precambrian period. The mountains have outcroppings of granite, rugged peaks, and plateaus which are crisscrossed by creeks, streams, rivers, swamps, and lakes surrounded by old growth forest lands. The Hurons are made up of three ranges. The property is near The Huron Range, which runs northwest-southeast to the west of Big Bay in Marquette County. There are views of 1,184 Foot High Bald Mountain, which is just a mile+ to the northeast of the property. This peak is known for panoramic views of Point Abbaye, the Huron Islands in Lake Superior, and Huron Mountain Range vistas to the east. The forest in this area is dominated by Eastern hemlock and Northern hardwoods. A select cut was done about 3 years ago, and all standing oak was left uncut. Wolves, moose, coyotes, fisher, marten, mink, white-tailed deer, gray and red foxes, porcupines, black bears, river otters and beavers are found here. This is a great spot for outdoor sports and recreation in every season. There are trails for hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, and hunting. The property is only a mile away from the convergence of the West and East Branches of the main 9-mile long Huron River. The Huron is a well known Type 4 Fishing River where Brown and Brook Trout and Atlantic salmon are in season from the last Saturday in April until the end of September. An Historic Fish Stocking Site, and five Huron River waterfalls are a few miles away. There is walk-in access to thousands of acres of Corporate CFA land on the northern border of the property, for fishing, trapping and hunting. Whitetail deer migrate through this area from the Huron Mountains to browse in the old homestead fields and orchards in the Skanee area. Hunters will find ample hunting of Black bear, Rabbit, Ruffed grouse and Whitetail deer. The property's trail system provides access to 6 Ground Blinds, 2 Tree Stands, and some small Food Plots. The region has lake-effect snow from Lake Superior, with annual averages exceeding 200 inches for exceptional snowmobiling and trekking with tracked ATVs. There are woods trails that connect to the main Snowmobile Trail Number 14, which is the northern-most east-west corridor between Baraga and Marquette Counties. Snowmobilers regularly travel this route. The 24x30 Log Cabin on this property will allow you to Rough It softly. The White and Red pine logs were cut and fitted on Drummond Island, and transported to the site for construction. A front Entry-Way leads to a large Gathering Room that has open Living/ Dining/ Kitchen areas. It is primarily heated with a wood burning kitchen cook stove from Waterford, Ireland, and an Lp Gas heater for back-up. The Kitchen has beautiful engineered wood floors and hickory cabinets.
