Your Own Private Northwoods Getaway

Come escape to a place unlike any other you have ever been to. Never before has this property been available to purchase. This Northwoods gem of uncompromised quality was featured in Log Home Living Magazine in 2012. You can own, not just one island, but two of your very own islands and 12+ acres of the pristine north woods in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Moments you experience here will be memories to cherish. This is an extremely unique property as it offers its own paved bridge and road right to the front door. Gated from the rest of the world for your exclusive use. 
An added convenience is a private airport only 20 minutes away. The islands are situated between East Bay and West Bay lakes of the Cisco Chain of Lakes which consists of 14 lakes and over 4,000 acres of water surface to enjoy. Enjoy some of the finest musky fishing North America has to offer. More than a mile of shoreline introduces panoramic views from all angles of this property, inside and out.

As you approach this rambling 7 bedroom, 9 bath, custom Log Home estate via the grand log-pillared carport entrance, you will know you are in for something special. Enter in the handcrafted double door entry into a closed-off breezeway, ladened with slate flooring for durability in all elements. Then a nice flow into the spectacular great room with a towering 32 ft cathedral ceiling and a lake-facing wall of windows and in the center a floor to ceiling wood burning fieldstone fireplace. Frontier builders used a combination of Red and White Pine logs that are native to the area and up to 41 inches in diameter. Every sightline of this 12,000 sq. ft. retreat reveals a new detail of exquisite design and craftsmanship. 

The open concept great room follows into the dining area with panoramic views and welcomes 20 guests. French doors open to expansive stone terraces and a gazebo with magnificent views and the most enchanting stone stairway going down to the front yard. The commercial quality, tastefully designed dream kitchen, complete with a butler station and bar area allows for entertaining on a royal scale. Several commercial, discretely placed, refrigeration and freezer spaces are around the corner from the kitchen. A quaint, airy octagon breakfast nook walled with windows has become a favorite spot for sunrises with coffee. Off the kitchen is a well-appointed Chef/Caretaker wing.

The grand en Suite Master bedroom encompasses a total of 1236 sq ft., has 18 ft cathedral ceilings and another floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace dressed in flagstone. A lake-facing reading nook invites relaxation. Very organized super-sized walk-in closet of course. The luxurious master bath is complete with a whirlpool tub offering lake views and an entertainment station in front of you while you soak your cares away. Two separate vanities topped with beautiful marble and a spacious walk-in shower with a custom glass door.  Taking a walk to the upper level that looks down over the crown jewel great room, you will find 4 more en suite bedrooms, each graced with an outdoor terrace to enjoy!  Unique log slab walls and rustic ol’ trappers corner in the catwalk.

In the walk-out lower level you will find a cozy expansive den with yet another fieldstone gas fireplace. A great way for the kids to warm up after a swim. Attached is a game room for their own play space and they will absolutely love the fireman’s bunk room with 3 sets of pyramid bunks, sleeping 9 people with double bunks on the bottom. The lower level also hosts two full bathrooms and a sauna, a must-have in the Northwoods. No mess on the main level with the well-equipped laundry room on the lower level. Mechanics room, electrical room, and a very convenient outdoor gear room and workshop are all part of the lower level. The workshop has been cleverly designed with double doors opening into the two-car tuck-under garage space. A matching log 3-car detached garage awaits up the driveway, for much more recreational toy storage. 

Outside you will be amazed at the additional outdoor living spaces around this estate.  Discover wrap-around porches, take a walk on the trails past the pond and waterfalls to the covered dock area that accommodates 3 or more boats and a spectacular fish cleaning house with bait refrigeration, freezers, sinks, aerated bait tanks, and even an ice machine. Stroll down the peaceful path to a picnic point where you can have shore lunches under the pavilion or just continue to the point to sit on the bench and take in all the nature surrounding you. This magical estate has become home to deer, cranes, otters, eagles, ospreys, and hummingbirds, just to mention a few of the new neighbors you will get to enjoy. The second island included in this property is a sanctuary for nesting bald eagles. 

Let the wind through the maple, birch, and hemlock, the sweet call of the loon, and the melody of the water sing you to sleep. Serenity at its finest. A truly rare opportunity to have a private island castle. Sellers are offering this estate completely furnished and turn-key ready for your immediate enjoyment!
