Attention discriminating buyers in search of paradise. This property is the only one of its kind, and there is only one opportunity in a lifetime to own it. Quietly set off the grid, this retreat is situated on ±130 acres of forest while being surrounded by thousands of acres of dense timberland. Located on the sandy shores of Lake Superior, the views go on forever along 5 miles of Sleeping Bay. Beyond that, the State of Michigan owns land for the next 2 miles to the east, and 2 of the 3 miles west. The 7-mile drive into the property immediately begins to erase the tensions of a busy lifestyle, no matter the season. Upon arriving in the clearing of the woods, the first sensation is that of calming views along the over one-half mile of fabulous Lake Superior frontage. One's eye then takes in the handsomely handcrafted full-scribe log home architecturally designed to take full advantage of those breathtaking views. With three bedrooms and two full baths, the craftsmanship of this log home is inspiring, allowing it to be warm and inviting for you and your guests to enjoy a very comfortable stay. The exceptional design of the structure and engineering of its mechanicals have all been very well thought out and precisely executed.
Walking into the home, you will find an open and airy great room with a striking granite fieldstone fireplace that follows up to the open loft area above. Over-sized tall windows and patio doors facing the lake allow for expansive grand views that can be seen from the comfortable eat-in kitchen. Through French doors, just off this area, is a generously sized 3-season porch with a hanging swing where you can enjoy the scenery, read a book, or have your morning coffee. The master bedroom is conveniently located on the main level just off the great room and features windows with expansive views of the lake, a grand 4-poster log bed, and a small loft area with a skylight. The main level bathroom separates the master bedroom from the second main level bedroom located in a quiet corner area of the house. This bedroom features a robust custom built 4-poster log bed and a large closet. On the other side of the stately fireplace are the handsome half-log stairs leading to the open loft area above overlooking the great room. This space provides an abundance of room for more seating, a home office, or extra sleeping beds. A large second-story bedroom has an en suite bathroom, large closet, and its very own private balcony.
Take in the changing seasons by utilizing the outdoor space afforded to the cabin. There is more than sufficient seating on the maintenance-free deck area, ideal for quiet contemplation, star gazing over the shimmering waters of Lake Superior, or watch your guests enjoy a refreshing swim on the sandy beach. A fire ring warms the evening's alfresco dining (including freshly caught fish) while enjoying the breathtaking sunset. Then it's time for a good old-fashioned wood-fired Finnish sauna in the detached hand built sauna that features a large changing room and it's own screened-in porch.
If you have a spillover of guests (and you will once your friends discover you own this hidden jewel), just out of view is a small yet comfortable 250 sq. ft. Caretaker's cabin located along the nearly ¼ Mile of Sleeping River frontage that is also located on this parcel. The river provides a safe place for mooring your boats, or a warm place to swim in the big lake is too chilly.
Whether you are a hunter, fisherman, wildlife enthusiast, nature lover, or just someone that wants to get away from "it all," this property has something for everyone. And to store all your outdoor recreational toys and equipment, there is a large 40 x 54 pole building that will come in handy. The property is ideal for the adventurous, those looking to bath themselves in nature, breath some of the cleanest freshest air, gaze at the clearest starry night skies, view the mystical northern lights, or fully absorb themselves in one of nature's most magnificent sunsets.
