This former high-fence game ranch - a multi-acre secure compound - is in Pure Michigan's northern lower peninsula. It's 1390 acres of fenced, pristine, secluded, security a short 40 minutes from the first class airport, healthcare, grocery stores and amenities in Traverse City, Mi.
For the past 100 years, this property has been owned by naturalists who have gone to extremes to preserve it.
An integrated road and trail system, with bridges and catwalks, provides excellent access for mobility and safety. The acreage is a good mix of cedar, tag elder swamps, hardwoods, scattered poplars, about 3 miles of creeks and springs, (and the possibility of buying almost 1/2 mile of adjacent river frontage) rolling land and tillable pastures. It's a perfect year-round wildlife habitat and excellent isolation for sustainability and recreation.
Deer Tracks is not a traditional property. As a ranch, it was built to accommodate groups comfortably and safely. The lodge has a commercial kitchen, spacious dining hall, caretakers quarters, bedrooms, animal viewing room and offices, all with countless opportunities to reconfigure. There's a maintenance barn (could be a bunkhouse or stable), game stands, animal processing building, golf cart garage, restored observation fire tower and support buildings. You can bug-out further to a beautiful small log cabin or a backcountry secure log treehouse. All of these structures were built by Maple Island Log Homes a premier log home company in the Midwest. The craftsmanship and details are incredible. And, this survival retreat comes move-in-ready.
