Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: North Woods Conservancy is a Michigan and federal 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of natural lands for native biological diversity, science and educaiton, and public access. Your payments are donations.

Why the Owner Chose Allouez, MI, USA:
All cabin proceeds are donations that help pay off the mortgage on the property, protecting the Conglomerate Falls natural area in perpetuity.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The rustic cabin lies at the end of a two track (1600 Conglomerate Falls Lane) more than 1/2 mile off a gravel county road (Tanskanen Road). Find peace and tranquility in the north woods, surrounded by white pine, maple, birch, and fir. The river is just a short walk away, with beautiful views of the famous fishing hole, Conglomerate Hole, and the upper falls. Dogs are welcome and will have the time of their lives! This is a special place anytime of year. In winter you will park on the county road, and ski or snowshoe 1/2 mile into the cabin. In spring/summer/fall, drive up access makes it easy. In warmer months, bathe using the rain barrel water or jump in the river or Lake Superior! Or ask about shower availability at the Ahmeek Streetcar Station.
