Lake Superior Shoreline


2 Miles of Frontage on Lake Superior
This impressive property includes 11,403 feet, about 2.16 miles of frontage with 532 acres of hardwoods and softwoods behind on the northern shore of the Huron Mountains. It is a wild beach, protected by vast wild land and washed by crystal water. The scenic and rugged Huron Islands lie straight north three miles off shore, close enough to kayak. The Keweenaw Peninsula, 18 miles to the west, extends 50 miles into Lake Superior on the horizon. The thread of the Little Huron River flows through the property to it`s mouth on Lake Superior. This is 90% of the private land between the Huron Mountain Club and the Marquette County line at the Big Huron River. It is the most private, pristine and lovely place you can imagine.

Frank Lloyd Wright and Lake Superior
On 1,707 feet of Lake Superior frontage and 128.70 acres at AuTrain Point, between Munising and Marquette, there`s a landmark 4,600 SF, 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home with a strong Frank Lloyd Wright influence. This home, which as you approach appears to be just one floor, comes with a dramatic surprise: three floors that drop straight down the face of a stone cliff above Lake Superior! An additional 5,950 SF of buildings includes a casita, large studio/shop/apartment, garage, and machine shed. From the deck, your lake view starts at the rock outcropping on the west and extends 180-degrees to the sandstone point on the east (with a hidden sand beach in between). This entire expanse of frontage to the west and about half of it to the east is on the property, which gives great privacy. Neighbors are nearby, but no other homes are visible from the home or the decks.

Bearberry Island off the Keweenaw, with cabin
Bearberry Island is 5 miles east of Eagle Harbor and 2 miles west of Agate Harbor off the Keweenaw Peninsula. The island is about 3 acres in size and lies only 225 yards from shore. It is part of an archipelago so access is well protected unless a gale is blowing due east or west. A shore station on the mainland provides boat storage and parking for your vehicle. After much experimentation, the owner has found that the best craft for access to the island is a rigid inflatable boat (like Navy Seals use.) It is 11.5 feet in length with a 15 hp outboard and is kept on a trailer and launched using an ATV. This really works well.

Partridge Bay Building Site on Lake Superior
Partridge Bay is a choice building location close to Marquette on Lake Superior. The lay of the land makes it very private. Granite outcroppings extend into Lake Superior, a powerful and beautiful shoreline. It is familiar to all who have climbed the popular Sugarloaf Mountain viewing area to the north to marvel at the view. As currently divided only nine building sites exist on this bay. This is the last one to be developed. It is a dramatic site, selected and saved 13 years ago in 1999 for a home that was designed and permitted but never built. You (and your architect) will dream large. If you`ve always wanted a home site as unique as this one, it waited for you! There is 1,000 feet of granite frontage with views of three islands, one of them large in your view, only a mile away. The building parcel has 4.4 acres. It is less than 6 miles from Downtown Marquette.

This exceptional site is within a half mile to both, and you can drive here on major roads from Mackinaw Bridge only 94 miles away.
