Munising Bay home
Here’s a large, versatile home with 100 feet of sandy frontage on Munising Bay, just east of Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, close to town, and it is offered at a great price. This could be just the thing for a young family, for a vacation home, or for retirement. Move in, stay put, and you can have all three!
Inside the floor plan is open and roomy with hardwood maple floors and an expanse of glass across the front to take full advantage of the sunset view across the bay and Grand Island. It has the feel of country living on the lake, but here you are right on the edge of town.
A lot of people can be comfortable and enjoy private spaces with five bedrooms or, depending on what you need, an assortment of offices, project rooms, guest/grandchildren rooms, a den, a hobby room, or whatever. It’s versatile space and it’s your pick.
For a family with dreams of living in small town America, and of vacationing at the lake, this location offers both. It is close to town and village activities, on the bay, a few minutes from school.
But the action for a young boy or girl is what you can do right in front or out back on foot or on a bike after school: Swim, sail, fish, ice fish, snowmobile, cross country ski, kayak, walk to Munising Falls half a mile down the street, or hike the trails of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The trailhead leading to Sand Point, the Marsh Trail, Lakeshore Trail or Miner’s Castle is just down the street. A perfect and lightly used sand beach for swimming, sunbathing, and just hanging out is 2.5 miles to the north.
The park offers a vast array of activities, educational opportunities, and things to do. Click here for info on the Lakeshore and also for Grand Island and the Hiawatha National Forest. For an active adult there’s all of the above plus a big front yard, plenty of room for projects and toys in the big double garage, and Pictured Rocks Golf & Country Club a mile up the road. Keep a sailboat at the marina or a Laser, kayak or Zodiac on the lakefront, by the sauna.
West Washington is a residential street off of H-58, so traffic noise is not a problem, but neither is easy access year round to whatever you want to do.
As a retirement home it is a great “base of operations” to explore the wonders of the Upper Peninsula. The family can come home to lots of active things to do. City supplies and services are handy, and there’s a hospital half a mile to the north on the same street. The Alger County Historical Museum is a block away. There’s a big, first floor master bedroom and master bath, and an efficient and pleasant kitchen.

Consider the value that is offered here: A hundred feet of Munising Bay frontage sells at $1,000/front foot and up. That means the 2,944 square feet of living space is priced at $56/sq. ft., and that’s not counting the big double garage with plenty of workspace and the sauna down by the lake. New construction will run $120 to $150/square foot. If building was your plan, think what you can do with the savings to personalize this home with art and add the special features you like.
