This waterfront parcel is located on Torch Bay, on the Keweenaw Peninsula, which juts out into Lake Superior from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The property is located on the south-eastern side of a kidney-shaped peninsula accessible through the village of Dollar Bay. Portage and Torch lakes wrap around it, defining its boundaries. This land mass is covered in new growth maple and birch forest, with some larger pines scattered through the area. To the north is the 2,700 Acre, 6-Mile long, 125-Foot deep Torch Lake. Torch Bay wraps around the eastern side of the peninsula, and connects Torch Lake with Portage Lake. Portage Lake has a surface area of 9,640 Acres, and a maximum depth of 50-Feet.
