Land Description

41+/- Acres For Sale, With Older Farmstyle Home. This parcel is located in Portage Township, in the central part of Houghton County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It is located on P651 (The Tapiola Road) just south of the small community called Tapiola. This hamlet was named by the Finnish settlers in the area for Tapio, the forest god of Finnish mythology. Roughly translated, “Tapio” means the “Abode of the Bear”. There are references to Tapio, in the Kalevala, the national epic of Finland. About 10,000 acres of the Copper Country State Forest lies in Portage Township. There is access to it just ¾ miles from the property being offered for sale. The State of Michigan acquired these lands after their old-growth trees were harvested in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Today the State manages these lands for timber production and recreational use. These State Forest lands also offer walk-in hunting, trapping and fishing in season. You will find Whitetail deer, Black bear, Coyote, occasional Wolves, Fox, Otter, Bobcats, Weasels, Fishers, Beaver, Ruffed grouse, and many bird species in these woodlands. The North Branch of the Otter River crosses through the property, and there is an Historic Fish Stocking Site just a quarter mile south of the property. The Otter River provides Brook and Brown trout, and an occasional Steelhead. The North and West Branch of the Otter flow together, and form a short main branch that empties into Otter Lake. This lake is 890 Acres in size, and about 29-Feet Deep. This lake is known for Walleye, Trout, Bass, Crappie and other Pan Fish. The home's First Floor has a Living Room, Kitchen, and Bathroom. Upstairs are three Bedrooms and a Landing. Two sides of the home have enclosed porches. With some Tlc, this could be a nice Recreational Cabin, or Year Round Home. Outbuildings include a 1.5 Vehicle Garage. If you would like to establish a private Get-A-Way in the Upper Peninsula, where there are lots of outdoor recreational opportunities, be sure to view this property.
