Property description

Come and enjoy the north woods of Michigan's Upper Peninsula on beautiful Iron Lake. This 3-bedroom home has 300+ ft of frontage on a quiet 300 acre lake just minutes from Iron River and US 2. In the tradition of the U.P., we fondly call this place, da Lake House.

Majestic cedars pepper our lake property while a stand of trees on each side of the property provides a feeling of seclusion and privacy. It doesn't matter what time of year ... every season possesses a unique feeling in this area of the Upper Peninsula.

In the spring and summer ... well, just come and relax. Hang a hammock (included) between two cedars and read a book or take a nap. Fish from the pier or from one of the boats. Take a quiet walk down the road or through the woods. Paddle around the lake and watch for eagles, deer, loons, and other wildlife. The shoreline is all sand for the first 15 feet. A nice, clear, spring-fed Wisconsin lake, the water is always refreshing. Snorkel off the end of the pier and watch the little fish come nibble on you. (paddle boat, alum canoe, and 10' alum fishing boat with oars provided, inc life vests and anchor)

In the fall, the view of the hardwoods across the lake provides a private showing of changing color. No other properties are visible directly across from us. The crisp air is refreshing and can make you feel alive. A fire in the lake-side fire pit is a great way to salute the end of the day. (firewood available)

In the winter, enjoy an exceptional sledding and skiing hill in Caspian, just on the edge or Iron River. Ski Brule is only 20 minutes away with snowboarding, tubing, cross country trails and excellent skiing. A number of quality cross country ski trails are located within minutes of Iron River along with 4-wheeler trails. A large plaza is on the edge of town with big grocery store, movie rental, Shopko store, pharmacy, hardware. Fast food and great specialty shops and restaurants throughout Iron River. Many of the UP's finest waterfalls are within minutes of here. Ice fishing is popular throughout the area, including on Iron Lake. Snowmobiling is a very popular sport with the local visitor's bureau having maps and details.

The house is fully equipped with virtually all the amenities you'll need for an enjoyable stay. Call me with questions: 920.470.8470

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am a lifetime Scout and conservationist ... been out in a lot of Wisconsin and UP areas ... and have fallen in love with this property, the lake, and the area. Due to high taxes, we have now opened 'da lake house' for others to enjoy. Call me with questions: 920.470.8470

Why the Owner Chose Iron River, MI, USA:
I bought the property because it was so private and quaint. We wanted a place just for ourselves, but to continue to afford to have this luxury, we're happy to share it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is so perfect if you enjoy the quiet solitude of a vacation on a lake. There are eagles and loons, cedars and birch, walleye, northerns and bass, and of course peace and quiet. There is over 300 feet of private lakefront to explore and a totally equipped house to retreat to when you've had too much fun outside.
