LOG CABIN ON SECLUDED 40-ACRE MICHIGAN RIVERFRONT PARCEL! This property is located in Baldwin Township, in North-Central Delta County, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. There are wonderful outdoor activities in every direction from this home! Lands of the Escanaba River State Forest borders this parcel along the north. This vast State Forest includes lands in Alger, Delta, Marquette, and Menominee Counties. It is managed and operated by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources for active recreational purposes such as hiking, canoeing, fishing, hunting, and the cutting of second-growth wood for paper pulp. The Hiawatha National Forest, an 894,836 acre National Forest is a quarter mile to the east. To the south is The Rapid River National Ski Trail which offers five loops suitable for hiking and biking. The trail is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful in the Upper Peninsula, as it winds thru towering pine-covered ridges and drops into thick lowland swamps. It offers a wide variety of challenges, from gentle, flat terrain to long, steep hills. On the North-East corner of the property is the Rapid River, so you can float or fish from your own property! The Rapid River is a 35.9-mile-long, Type 4 fishing stream. It rises in southeast Marquette County near McFarland, and flows into Little Bay de Noc on Lake Michigan near the community of Rapid River. On the river less than a mile away is the scenic Rapid River Falls County Park. This 80-Acre park is set up for picnicking and fishing. It has a picnic area, grills, playground equipment, and vault toilets. The parks rests at the foot of several small rapids that have a gentle five foot drop over limestone bedrock. All of these adventures are just minutes away from the Home!! The original 1-1/2 Story log cabin was built in 1950. This area includes an Entry-Way, Kitchen, Dining Area, and 3/4 Bath. In the mid-1990s an addition was built for a Living Room, Office, and First-Floor Bedroom. Upstairs are two Bedrooms. The home is heated with a Exterior Wood Boiler System, Free Standing Woodstove in the Living Room, and a Lp Heater. A well was drilled in 1989. Outside you will find a 30x40 Pole Barn which features a "Man Cave" recreational area. There is a 12x20 Storage Barn, Lean-To Shed that was used as a Horse Barn, and 10x15 Sauna. The Sauna overlooks a 100-Foot Spring-Fed Circular Pond that attracts wildlife. In the nicely wooded area of the property, which is made up of a mix of hardwoods and conifers, are a Deer Blind, and a Bear Blind that will be included in the sale. Hunting is especially good for Black bear in this area. If you are excited about wildflower viewing, hiking, bird watching, outdoor education, nature study, photography, and hunting you will love this area!
