Upper Michigan Log Home On Private Lake For Sale! This property is located in west-central Dickinson County, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The nearest town to the east of the property is Randville (which is about 14 miles north of Iron Mountain). This was a historic mining settlement formed because of the nearby Groveland Mine. It was also a station on the Milwaukee and Northern Railroad as early as 1880. The 2,774 Square Foot Log Home is remotely located on a 437-Acre Parcel with its own Private 21-Acre, 60-Foot Deep lake. It is perfectly situated to fully utilize its spectacular views of Spirit Lake and the forests around the property. The lake was originally named Gestner Lake, and may have been named after Robert Gerstner’s Saw Mill, a saw mill that operated for many years at Carey’s Spur, north of Randville in Sagola Township. Water from the Gestner Branch Creek flows into the west side of the lake, and then exits into the West Branch of the Sturgeon River. The lake hosts a variety of fish, from Bluegill, Crappies, Largemouth bass, Northern pike, and Perch. About three miles to the north is a Multi-Use State Trail, and the property is surrounded by Corporate CFA Land. Rustic and refined elements come together with a modern clean design to create the Michigan Masterpiece being offered for sale!
