Upper Michigan Private lake Log-Sided Home/Cabin for Sale. This beautiful 44.57-Acre property has 3,091 Feet of Porter Lake frontage, and 721 Feet of Pass Creek frontage. Porter is a private 270 Acre, 33 Foot deep lake which is located in Hematite Township in north-central Iron County. This County has more than 900 miles of stream and rivers and more than 1,000 lakes and ponds. Porter Lake is a trophy (30 to 45-Inch) Northern Pike lake. There are also good numbers of Walleye, Largemouth bass and Panfish. The lake has some nice sunken islands adjacent to deep water, which is where you can do your trolling. For more fishing excitement you can take navigable Pass Creek channel to Cable Lake. This lake is a trophy Pike lake, and also supports good numbers of big Bluegills. Porter Lake is surrounded by Corporate CFA Lands and Copper Country State Forest lands - The observation of wildlife and native plants is unlimited. In the fall the forests offer breathtaking views of spectacular colored foliage. There is great hunting for American black bear, Ruffed grouse (Partridge), Whitetail deer, Woodcock and Wild turkey in the area, and there is a raised blind on the property. In the winter you will enjoy the Snowmobiling and Cross-Country treks available right on your own property and on the Porter Lake/Sidnaw Multi-Use State trail which is a few miles west of the property. Just a few miles to the east is the Net River, a 14.9-mile-long river. Its headwaters rise in Baraga County and flow southwest into Iron County, where the main stem forms and flows to the Paint River above Crystal Falls. This remote, wild river offers solitude in a wild northwoods setting that is ideal for early-season paddlers. (In Summertime the water levels are generally too low to support paddling.) On the Net, a few miles south of the property is Snake Rapids, a smaller 5-Foot waterfall that has an access site. You enter the property using a tree-shaded forest drive that leads to a high spot along the north-eastern shore of the lake. The Main Building is a Log Sided Lodge which was built in 1982, and has additions that were built in later years. The Main Floor consists of an Open-Concept Living/Dining/Kitchen area that features a Natural Stone Fireplace, Knotty-Pine wall finishes, high vaulted ceilings, and wood floors. From this Central Area you can either relax in the adjoining 10x16 Waterview Den, or in the Summer months you can enjoy the 12x14 Screened Porch. A 10x12 First Floor Bedroom, Full Bath, and Pantry also share this floor. Upstairs there is a 11x20 Loft Bedroom that can be reached via an Outside Stairway, or by climbing up an interior Ladder. Off the Loft Bedroom is a 5x10 Screened Porch. The northwest corner of the home has an L-Shaped 8x23 and 12x24 partially covered Deck where you can enjoy the lake, pond, and creek views as you while away the hours in a hanging swing. Just up the hill from the home is a sweet 16x24 Guest Cabin. Here you will find a 7x12 Living Area, 8x12 Kitchen, 10x10 Bedroom, and 5x10 3/4-Bath Down, and a 10x10 Loft reached by a ladder. The Cabin has electric and gas lights, and is heated by an Lp-gas space heater. Outside there are several Outbuildings - An 8x11 Generator Building and a 12x18 Wood Shed. Heating of the home is by fireplace and Lp-gas space heaters. Electricity is provided by a Kohler Generator system. The property surrounding the buildings is rolling, and has a mixture of conifers, hard and soft woods. There are three spring-fed trout ponds on the property, where the seller has raised rainbows, browns and brookies. Rainbows up to 6 pounds have been taken here. It is rare to find an inland lake with this much acreage or frontage. If you are seeking the ultimate private waterfront retreat, schedule your tour today.
