Ranch Description

Upper Michigan Lake Superior Vacation Home for Sale!! Located in NE Baraga County, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, this 10+ Acre parcel has 775+/- Feet of Overlook frontage on Lake Superior. The bluff along this part of Lake Superior will remind you of the Pictured Rocks National Park. You can watch Great Lakes Freighters as they pass the Huron Islands and Lighthouse! The property provides access to all your favorite outdoor activities. Evenings bring beautiful sunsets to view, and on many nights you can see Aurora Borealis (or the northern lights) put on fascinating magical displays against the dark night skies. Winter is a wonderful time to see them, when there are lower levels of light and the air is clear, and crisp. (September, October, March and April are some of the best months to view them.) In the winter you can also enjoy snowmobiling, which is popular in the area. In the summer you can watch Great Lakes Freighters as they pass by, and there are incredible views from this parcel of Point Abbaye and the Huron Islands National Wildlife Refuge. You can see the beacon of Lighthouse Island, which gleams a few miles away. Lighthouse Island, or West Huron, is the second largest of the eight islands comprising the 147-Acre Islands in the Refuge. The refuge was established for the protection of migratory birds, specifically a large nesting colony of herring gulls. Just two miles away is the West Branch of the Huron River, which flows northward into the main branch of the Huron River, and then empties into Lake Superior. This is a Type 1 Fishing Stream, where you can fish year round. This river's mouth is bordered by sugar sand beaches and is in the Copper Country State Forest. The sand beaches are great for sunning and beach combing for "sea glass" and drift wood. If you are a "Big Water" boating or fishing enthusiast, you can launch at Witz Marina which is about ten minutes away. (Several other designated trout streams and rivers are also in the area, and there are eight waterfalls within a half-hour drive of this property.) Close by are thousands of acres of Corporate CFA and Copper Country State Forest land for walk-in access for hunting and trapping, and additional fishing. Grouse, whitetail deer, and black bear, eagles, duck and other forest wildlife are regularly seen in the area. The home is located at the very end of road, and has a wooded border that surrounds the building site - this ensures lots of privacy. The custom Cedar Sided home features an Open-Concept Living / Dining / Kitchen Area. Cathedral Ceilings, with three stories of custom-made windows facing the lake, provide views from every level. Tongue and groove cedar walls, 4 skylights, and hickory Kitchen Cabinetry contribute to the well lighted, Up North theme of the interior. There is a 11x14 Bedroom and Full Bath also included on the Main Floor. Upstairs is a 13x20 Loft Bedroom that includes a Reading/Lounging Area that overlooks the living area below, a king sized Log Bed, a large Walk-In Closet, and another Full Bath. A large 12x32 deck overlooking the lake is accessed from the Main Floor, and provides lots of space for outdoor entertaining. The Lower Level of the home has a Utility Area, Storage Area, and a 1-Car drive-under garage that could be converted into additional sleeping space. A 27x31 2-Car detached garage holds the an Lp gas generator system. The level property leads to a bluff at the shoreline. There is a step-down pathway to the water's edge which is composed of larger, flat sandstone rocks. Here you can launch your boat, canoe, tube or kayak, wade, and swim from your own property.
