Land Description

Lake Michigan Waterfront Property for sale. Motivated Sellers. This 4.03-Acre waterfront parcel is known as Miller Point, and is located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan's western section of Schoolcraft County. There are about 20 Miles of northern Lake Michigan shoreline in this county, and the property offered for sale has 1,024 Feet of that. It is located along the north-eastern edge of the Garden Peninsula which extends 22 miles into Lake Michigan. It is located on Miller Point, a point along the southern shore of Point aux Barques, a prominent feature on the peninsula's eastern shore. Lake Michigan is one of the five Great Lakes of North America and is the second-largest of the Great Lakes by volume and the third-largest by surface area. The word "Michigan" originally referred to the lake itself, and is believed to come from the Ojibwa word Mishi Gami meaning "great water". Its ninety some thousand acres of water offer a fisherman's dream come true. Add to this an aggressive fish management program and you have some of the best fishing in the USA. This area had virgin forests and plenty of timber and became important in the Upper Peninsula's lumber boom. By 1881, the Delta Lumbering Company was operating a mill along the shores of Lake Michigan. The Village of Thompson, named after the mill Owner and President E.L. Thompson, was formed at about this time. The first official census was taken in 1884. By the early 1900's, the Township had 8 schools, a general store, township hall, 3 churches (Catholic, Swedish Lutheran and Methodist), a barber shop, boarding house, livery stable, a hotel, saloons and a hospital. There were 3 doctors and a midwife. Thompson Township has a small commercial area along the US-2 corridor, which includes two motels, a convenience/gas station store, a real estate office, church, and a variety store/ lumber yard. The area is central to lots of year-round activities. You can camp or canoe in the summer, snowmobile or ice fish in the winter, or enjoy a fall color tour during the autumn. The Indian Lake State Park, the Manistique Light and Boardwalk, the Bishop Baraga Historical Site, the Schoolcraft County Historical Park, the Seney National Wildlife Refuge, the Seul Choix Point Lighthouse Park and Museum, The Thompson State Fishery (a state owned and operated fish hatchery), a golf course, and Michigan's largest spring, Big Spring "Kitch-iti-ki-pi", are all not far away. To the south-west, along the western shore of the Garden Peninsula, is the 711-Acre Fayette Historic Townsite. If you are interested in hunting, the property has lots of "deer signs" and this area is known for good hunting - Big Deer with Big Racks. About a mile away is walk-in access for hunting and trapping. The beautiful property being offered for sale has both wooded and cleared areas. It is level to very slightly rolling - there are be some awesome sites on this point where you could build a Seasonal Cabin or Home that would provide 180-Degree panoramic views of the Lake Michigan shoreline. There is power and telephone available at the road side, and it has Year-Round access. Call for your private tour.
