A rare opportunity in Michigan's Upper Peninsula! 520 acres of well-managed, high quality, northern hardwoods forestland along with more than a mile of the legendary Big Huron River. The Property is located 20 miles north of the village of L'Anse near the outpost of Skanee. The Big Huron river is a top quality, and well-known, steelhead and trout fishery that draws anglers from all over the Midwest. The forestlands consist of primarily northern hardwood types which are sugar maple, red maple, hemlock and yellow birch. There are more than 200 acres of excellent quality forest that have not been harvested in many years. Towering, majestic hemlock groves border the river in several places giving one the feeling of stepping back in time. Other forest types are young aspen stands, bottom-land hardwoods along the river corridor, and even an open beaver meadow. This variety of forest types creates a very diverse wildlife ecosystem. The Skanee area is known to be an excellent white-tailed deer hunting area and combining that with the natural diversity, an excellent road network, and contiguous nature of the of the acreage, this parcel would offer an excellent opportunity for a very private hunting and fishing estate. A pair of Bald Eagles and Osprey were both witnessed fishing along the river during the property inspection! Other wildlife species includes ruffed grouse, black bears, wild turkeys, snowshoe hares, beavers, otters, countless songbird species, woodpeckers, squirrels, amphibians and reptiles. A unique cabin known as the Huron Bay Lodge which was built in the 1910's or early 1920's by the then Lt Governor of Michigan still remains on the property. The cabin was built from black spruce logs cut off the land and assembled in the location where it still stands today. The Lt. Governor of that time and his guests would stay at this cabin when they traveled to the UP by trail. Once to the UP they would hire people to take them into the camp for two weeks in the spring for fishing and again for two weeks in the fall for deer hunting. Although it has been neglected for some time, it is not too late! The cabin can still be salvaged if a buyer were to have that vision and desire. The walls and roof are in remarkably good condition, but the foundations are severely degraded. Additional information about the surrounding area: o Thousands of acres of Commercial Forest lands (CFA) that are open to hunting and fishing offering even more recreational opportunities. o The nearby community of Skanee, has an excellent marina, boat launch and campground with large boat access to Lake Superior and Huron Bay.
