This is a 650 acre gated ranch that holds hundreds of mature whitetail deer and is a nature lovers dream! Outdoor activity options abound! Hundreds of miles of snowmobiling is right next door with cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, snow tubing and sledding within minutes for winter activities. Summer activities include fly fishing on the Au Sable River, horseshoes and bonfires next to a pavilion on site. Near-by attractions include golfing in the 'Gaylord Golf Mecca' which is 'America's Premier Summer Golf Mecca' and boasts 17 golf courses that include world-class resorts and championship golf courses designed by some of America's top golf-course designers. If a day trip away from tranquility is what you need, you can visit Traverse City which is about an hour from the ranch. Here you can go on a wine tour or just sight-see along Grand Traverse Bay. Just a short 30 minutes further west is Lake Michigan and the Sleeping Bear Dunes which was voted 'Most Beautiful in America' by Good Morning America!
