Property Features
LAKE SUPERIOR SAND BEACH PROPERTY FOR SALE! This property has over 1,400-Feet of pebble beach and is 52-Acres in size! It is located off Sand Dunes Drive, about two miles east of Eagle River, along the beautiful Great Sand Bay of Lake Superior in Houghton Township, in Keweenaw County. This Upper Peninsula of Michigan county is pronounced KEY-wah-nah, an Ojibway word that means "the crossing place" or "land crossing between two bodies of water." It refers to traversing Portage Lake to reach the Keweenaw Peninsula. An area that has year-round beauty and activities, opportunities for out door activities abound! The prevailing westerly winds off this sunset side of Lake Superior created large deposits of sand resulting in the formation of the only sand dunes along the Keweenaw Peninsula - and this property has more than a quarter-mile of this beautiful beach-front. You can wade, swim, collect water washed stones, and launch your Sea Kayak right from your very own property. The property is wooded with Eastern white pine, Balsam fir, Maple, Northern white cedar, Oak, Paper birch, and White spruce. Another natural feature of the property, the Jacobs Creek actually crosses it on it's way to Lake Superior. One great nearby recreational opportunity to explore is Jacobs Falls, less than a quarter mile away. The last of a series of falls on this creek, a 20-foot slide, is visible from a pull over of the north side of the road. The creek drops 200 feet in less than a quarter mile before reaching Lake Superior. Just above the last drop is another slide and above that is a 5' drop. A steep trail climbs along the rim of the gorge that lets you get nice views of the next two drops. More drops are visible above that, but the views are obscured. It is also possible to clamber up the gorge itself, which is what you would have to do if you really wanted to explore all the possible falls on Jacobs Creek. The Falls is actually located at a very unique tourist attraction, a Catholic Monastery of the Byzantine rite. The monks there operate "The Jampot" which is well known for a wide selection of homemade jams, jellies and preserves and fresh bakery and fruitcakes. You can pack a lunch with their treats, and set off for more adventure! To the south, the Village of Eagle River has a nice long public sand beach set up with picnic tables and fire rings. Close by is the Redwyn Dunes Nature Sanctuary. Thesanctuary is across from Great Sand Bay and has a large sign marking the entrance. A one mile trail shows off the dune ponds and rolling topography, yet is easy for hikers of all ages. Another nearby summer landmark is the George Hite Dunes and Marshes Preserve, a 360 Acre preserve managed by the Keweenaw Land Trust. Scuba Divers love the off shore Keweenaw Underwater Preserve just a short drive to the north! When summer turns to autumn, a blaze of color covers this area, and Fall Color Tours around the peninsula are a must.  Remarks Continued: In winter, snow normally covers the land from Thanksgiving to late April with the average annual snowfall ranging from 180 to 250 inches. Snowmobiles, tracked ATVs, and Cross Country Skis become exciting modes of travel! It is rare to find a waterfront parcel of this size - This one has year round access, a driveway in place, and is in one of the most scenic, historic, wonderlands found in Michigan!  MLS# 1121946
