SOLD! Rare Opportunity to own a 3-bedroom log home with over 300 Feet of Lake Frontage and over One Thousand Acres of Beautiful Forest Land! This beautiful property is located in west-central Marquette County, and includes land in both Michigamme and Republic Townships. The log home is located on the shore of Lake Michigamme, an "All Sports Lake", which is one of Michigan's largest lakes. It reaches a depth of over 70 feet, and covers 4,292 acres in Marquette and Baraga County, Michigan. The vast majority of the lake lies in Marquette County, with only its westernmost part extending into Baraga County. The lake is about 6 miles east to west, with an arm extending about 4 miles south. A dam separates the Michigamme river from the lake at the end of the southern arm. The Spurr river flows into the lake's west end and the Peshekee river flows into the lake inthe north east. Van Riper State Park and Van Riper beach are located at the eastern shoreline of the main arm. The lake is speckled with 27 picturesque islands, lots of wind-swept bays, points, narrows, and rock beds to boat around. Boating, sailing, swimming, and water skiing are popular on Lake Michigamme, and it is a U.P. "fishing destination". Common fish include Brook and Lake trout, Smallmouth Bass, Muskies, Northern Pike, Walleye, Perch, Rock and Smallmouth Bass, and even Whitefish in the deeper parts. There are nice swimming beaches at the Van Riper State Park on the eastern end of the lake, and at the Township-owned park on the west shore. Hikers and Rock Hounds also explore the massive mineral outcroppings found about the lake. This area is also known for western Marquette County Snowmobiling and Cross-County Skiing opportunities. The Village of Michigamme borders on the west end of the lake, were you can find shopping for clothing, fine art, and local crafts - and there is dining, fuel and groceries available nearby. This area is a very popular destination for many generations of families and sports persons, and is rich in pioneering, logging, and mining history! Craig Lake State Park, Van Riper State Park and the McCormick Wilderness are minutes away for hiking, fishing, and views of moose. The one-story Log Home has an open concept living/dining/kitchen area with beamed-cathedral ceilings and a floor-to-ceiling window system that provides sunset views of seven islands. A private suite includes a large Bedroom and Full Bath, with sliding door to the front Deck. Two large bedrooms and a 2nd Full Bath complete another wing.
