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 of Walleye, Largemouth-bass and Panfish. The lake has some nice sunken islands adjacent to deep water, which is where to do your trolling. For more fishing excitement you can take navigable Pass Creek channel to Cable Lake. This lake is also a trophy Pike lake, which 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.
