PRIVATE MICHIGAN INLAND LAKE FOR SALE! This secluded 47.89-Acre recreational parcel is located in Duncan Township, in the south-eastern part of Houghton County in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan - an area that contains thousands of acres of Ottawa National Forest Land, and very few privatly owned parcels. The sale property includes the entire 9.56-Acre Barchard Lake! An area rich in history, the nearest Village, Sidnaw was founded in the late 1880s during the logging haydays. The name of the community, "Sidnaw" is a Native American word for a small hill by a creek. Yet today, a section of the Village is called "addition to Hill Creek". Lumbermen, Gunlak Bergland and Thomas Nestor subdivided the Village, and harvested the high quality white pine in the area. The D.S.S. and A. Railroad provided transportation of their top-quality lumber to far away places, and the Village boomed. It is still the center of Henry Ford's hardwood empire. A Civilian Conservation Corps camp built in the area, was later used as a work camp for German POWs during World War II. The well known Main East-West Snowmobile Trail 8/15 goes right through Sidnaw, then heads northward, and runs along the western border of the property offered for sale! Ottawa National Forest Lands adjoin the eastern border of the property, and the north western corner of the property. The Ottawa National Forest - covers 993,010 acres of land in the Upper Peninsula! These lands offer a variety of hunting opportunities ranging from small game to large animals. Black Bear, Canada Goose, Duck and Mergansers, Ruffed Grouse, Whitetail deer, and Woodcock hunting opportunities exist here. A Classic Bungalow style (a less formal cousin of Craftsman and Prairie styles) Cabin overlooking the lake, was built years, and years ago by a local Notable. It will need lots of work to bring it back to it's original early 20th Century Charm. Making the most of the homes square footage, the house features an open central Living/Dining Room, no hallways, and Bed rooms, and Bath room arranged along each side. The rooms have tall, multi-paned windows. The Living Room has a unique arch shaped ceiling, and a natural stone fireplace. A set of french-style doors lead to an enclosed Porch, on the lake side of the home, that has lots of windows that provide natural light and views of the lake below. Off of the enclosed Porch is an exterior open wood raised deck. The Kitchen and Bath will need new plumbing. Updated electrical service will be needed throughout. The exterior of the cabin has wood and cedar shake siding. The roof will need to be replaced. A metal Pole Building on the property has been damaged by weather/snowload, and will need work.
