Ranch Description

Michigan Geodesic Dome Cabin ON 40-Acres With Bark Creek Frontage For Sale. The 40-Acre wooded parcel is located in Garfield Township, in Mackinac County - in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The name “Mackinac” is a derivative of the Native American word “Michilimackinac”. The traditional interpretation is “Land of the Great Turtle” referring to the shape of Mackinac Island. Mackinac County is located in the southeastern portion of the Upper Peninsula and serves as “the gateway to the Up”. It has 298 miles of Great Lakes shoreline on its boundaries - Lake Michigan on the west, Straits of Mackinac in the center, and Lake Huron on the east. The property offered for sale about 7 miles north-east of Naubinway, which is the northern most community on the Lake Michigan shoreline and the largest commercial fishing port on the Great Lakes in the Upper Peninsula. (The Indian name Naubinway means Places of Echoes.) Commercial fishing operations play a significant part in the area's history, but today fishing is primarily recreational. There are 347 miles of rivers and streams in the county. The property being offered for sale has Bark Creek crossing diagonally through it. The Bark is a tributary of the Black River. This creek, along with The East Branch, the Borgstrom Creek, Peters Creek, and the Silver Creek all join to form the main branch which flows southward into Lake Michigan about five miles east of Naubinway. In total the Black River is about 11 miles long. Much of it travels through the Lake Superior State Forest. You can fish on your own property for steelhead that come upstream and spawn under the bridge, or head to Lake Michigan to fish for King Salmon. Besides fishing, there are outdoor recreational opportunities to enjoy in every direction from the property. There is access to thousands of acres of the Black River State Forest from the western edge of the property. Hunting, trapping, and wildlife photography are popular here. Whitetail deer, Black bear and Grouse hunting on the property. Other wildlife species also found in the area include bobcat, coyote, wolf, and a few moose, and small animals such as rabbits, raccoons, mink, otter, beaver, skunk, muskrat, and fox. Mushrooming and Blueberry Picking has always been popular here, and Bird Watching as a hobby is growing every year. Parts of the The Hiawatha Hiking Trail and the PullUp Lake Multi-Use State Trail for Atv-Ing, snowmobiling, hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing is nearby. Access to Snowmobile Trail 473 is minutes away. The Hiawatha Sportsman's Club Golf Course and Naubinway public Golf Course and Pro Shop is only 1.5 miles away. Members and guests can enjoy their beautiful 9 hole golf course. A Casino, Marinas, Private commercial campgrounds, National Forest Campground, State Forest Campgrounds, and a Township Camp ground are a short drive away - and it is less than an hour drive from the Mackinaw Bridge. Dome homes have been built around the world, and their many structural advantages have proven to be a stable and efficient form of shelter. The interior of the quaint cabin has an open concept, with ceiling sky lights providing natural lighting. Additional lighting is provided by indoor propane Lp Gas lights, Heat is provided by an Lp Gas free standing stove, and there is an Lp Gas cook stove.
