Description

MICHIGAN 80-ACRE RECREATIONAL PROPERTY FOR SALE! This parcel is located in southern Portage Township in the central part of Houghton County, in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It is located in an area called the Tapiola District a historical logging and agricultural use area. Hardwood forests cover most of the land and there are many rivers and streams passing through it. Farming in the 1890s to the 1940s was primarily associated with Dairy Farms, and farmsteads with homes, barns, and outbuildings in open fields can still be seen today. The North Branch of the Otter river is the most prominent water feature. It originates close to the northern end of the district, and is fed by many creeks and the Sante River as it flows to the southwest. The North Branch joins the West Branch. The river then spreads out into a marshy delta where it empties into the south end of Otter Lake. Otter Lake is an 890 Acre lake – One of the largest sport fishing lakes in Houghton County. Its maximum depth is 29 feet, and it is filled with Walleye, Perch, Sauger, Smallmouth bass, Northern pike, Crappies, Brook and Rainbow trout. Popular Fishing Derbys are held on this lake annually. Beaver, Geese, Ducks, Waterfowl and Songbirds call this lake their home. Thousands of acres of Copper Country State Forest Lands and Corporate CFA Lands surround the property offered for sale which provide “walk-in” access for hunting, trapping, and fishing, in season. The nearest Village for supplies is Tapiola, which was established in the early twentieth century as the main agricultural, social, and business center for the district. Karvakko’s Store has been in business since 1925 and still serves locals and tourists today! The name Tapiola means “realm of the forest god” in Finnish – named after the dense pine forests that once dominated the area. French Canadians cut the forests during the white pine logging era of the 1880’s, and the cutover lands were available for homesteading by the 1890s. Finnish farmers rapidly arrived and established Tapiola, and nearby Elo, and Askel. The property includes a Two-Story 24x41 Wood Frame building that is clad in steel. It has entrances on both ends of the First Floor so ATVs, Snowmobiles, Tractors, etc., can be stored within. There is a corner stairway to the unfinished Upper Level, and a door at one end, which opens to allow hoisting of items to the second floor. A set of exterior stairs could easily be built to be able to use this entrance-way. A group of “outdoors people” might find this a great structure to finish off for a unique hunting camp. A timber harvest was done on the property about two years ago. Generations of the Family have used this property for recreation. Hunting in the area is excellent. There is lots of privacy!!
