Property description

Wilderness wonderland. Home in picturesque setting on 160 acres. Spring feed private lake, ponds, hiking trails, pontoon boat, kayaks, canoe, paddle boat, and fire pit.

The lake is crystal clear great for swimming, fishing, kayak adventures, and sunset pontoon cruises. Wildlife is plentiful: Loons, Sandhill Cranes, Bald Eagles, Deer, Blue Herring, and Beavers are regular sightings. The property includes; a dock on the lake and 20 x 12 screened porch / sundeck at the lake.

The spacious house is the perfect location for a week or weekend escape. The house consists of 3 bedrooms all with great views of the lake and surrounding wilderness. Each room has 1 queen and twin bed. There are 2 full baths with a tub/shower in each. The large living room, with fireplace, has plenty of couch space so no one feels cramped. You can enjoy movie night or watch the big game on the Dish Network TV and DVD player. If games are more to your liking there is a foosball table, dart board, board games, and cards. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking with all appliances including microwave and dishwasher. The kitchen has a large dining room table that seats 10. If you are into grilling there is a lWeber gas grill on the large 25 x 30 deck that overlooks the pond and lake. The deck has a picnic table, and Adirondack chairs to relax and enjoy the view.

A short hike from the main house you will find 'Butler Cabin' which is a small secluded log cabin located on the property. Enjoy the woods from the porch or step inside and light the wood burning stove if there is a chill in the air.

Catch and release fishing is required on the lake and ponds. Also, there is no hunting or trapping allowed on the property.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: I enjoy anything to do with outdoors

Why the Owner Chose South Branch, MI, USA:
I have spent countless hours over the last 30+ years enjoying outdoor activities around South Branch. Fishing, hunting, biking, hiking, canoeing, Kayaking and skiing are my passion.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
This is a one of a kind location. If you enjoy being away from crowds and out in the wilderness this is a perfect spot. But if you prefer both quiet and also some social activities, the house is close to the Timbers Steak House, Long Lake Bar, Wicker Hills Golf Course, Rifle River State Park, and Huron National Forest.
