Burrell Lakes is a truly unique property with several small lakes and 440 acres of land. The size and depth of the individual lakes vary, and the forests are dominated by northern hardwoods. You’ll find a quality sugar maple and red maple forest throughout the property, as well as a more significant conifer component around the scenic lake shores. This property has excellent year-round access on paved County Road H58 with utility services found along the road frontage. You can’t beat this location, which is just outside of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore buffer zone about 20 miles northeast of Munising and 25 miles southwest of Grand Marais. The Burrell Lakes property has a conservation easement in place that is held by the State of Michigan. It is part of The Nature Conservancy’s Northern Great Lakes Forest Project. This property is one of a handful of parcels that was specifically set aside and designated for a limited development opportunity. This is your chance to be a part of the historic conservation project known as “The Big U.P. Deal”. The conservation easement encourages the sustainable use of forest resources, the protection of conservation values, and provides opportunities for public recreation in a manner consistent with forest management and recreation conservation. It allows for the development of one single-family structure with associated outbuildings, providing a unique private ownership experience. This property has a large pre-designated “Privacy Zone” that can be posted as private property where you can build your version of the perfect wilderness getaway. The residual property will remain open to the public for foot traffic for those to enjoy passive recreational pursuits. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to be a part of the Upper Peninsula’s historic conservation heritage!
