Here is an extremely rare opportunity to own a property that has a 124-acre crystal clear water lake in its midst. This outstanding property has many hard to find qualities, including mature forest. It shares its boundary on three sides by the almost 1,000,000-acre Ottawa National Forest. On the west side, it is bordered by The University of Notre Dame Environmental Research Center, an 8,000-acre pristine wilderness on the Michigan/Wisconsin border. The centerpiece is Emeline Lake, a jewel in an area of many fine lakes. Emeline Lake boasts depths of 80+ feet and over 2.9 miles of unspoiled pristine shoreline with 3 picturesque islands for added beauty. Owned by the same fortunate family since 1958, this property has been enjoyed by several generations and has never had a building on it. The forest surrounding the lake is home to many species including deer, bear, wolves, turkey, and grouse. Loons nest on the lake’s edge, and eagles and other birds of prey frequent the skies above. Many outdoor recreational opportunities can be enjoyed on the property including fishing and swimming in the cool clear waters, watching the activities going on under the water while snorkeling, or hiking and mountain biking just to name a few. Once the ground turns white, many other outdoor activities can be entertained. Try snowshoeing or cross country skiing through the forest or the lake on a full-moon night. Plus, you can enjoy the hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails nearby. This is a rare opportunity for a lucky few to privately own their “Up North” get-a-way and share it with generations to come.
